FAQs

How do I know if my baby is wet?

You don't really. They may be fussy, which is a good indicator, but not all babies fuss when wet/dirty. If you fancy yourself an expert, you can grab/pinch the diaper crotch and eventually you will learn to feel how wet they are, if at all. Otherwise, plan to change them when they are fussy if feeding didn't do the trick, or every couple of hours.

How many diapers do I need?

The number of diapers you purchase depends on how often you want to do laundry.  We recommend a minimum of 20 to 30 diapers in both the little bum and big bum sizes.  This will result in laundry every 2-3 days for a newborn and 3-4 days for an older baby/toddler.

 

Can I buy cloth diapers second-hand?

Yes!  This is a great cost-effective option to support a circular economy.  Prep second-hand diapers the same way you would new diapers.

 

Are there other types of cloth diapers?

Yes, cloth diapers come in a variety of options and sizes.  We used the pocket-style diaper and found it was the best value for our family and was the easiest to use.

 

Where are your diapers made?

Our diapers are purchased directly from the manufacturer in China.  The diapers we sell are diapers that we used for both of our kids and the ones that were the best quality at the most reasonable price.

 

Do you offer handmade cloth diapers?

Not at this time.  We haven't ruled it out for the future, but the cost of making cloth diapers by hand is quite high and would result in a per diaper cost that is not accessible to most families.  We have thought long and hard about handmade cloth diapers, but ultimately, we've chosen an affordable price point at this time. 

 

How much money will I save with cloth diapering?

On average, per child, you can save anywhere from $1,700 to $5,000 by cloth diapering your child.  This is dependent on the price point of the disposable diapers compared to.
