OK, let me clarify. William (aka the peeing and pooping machine) is coming in just a few short months and what better way to prepare than to start seeing what is available for the softest and green cloth diapers that are out there.
As I have reported plenty of times, I'm going in somewhat blind but I started with a basic order of three different cloth diapers.
- Bum Genius 4.0 Pocket Diaper (with snaps)
- Bum Genius Elemental Diaper (made with organic cotton)
- FuzziBunz Pocket Diaper
So to help paint a little more of a picture of what one kind of cloth diaper involves, I have included some pics. (I apologize for the quality - I am too excited and not the best photographer in the first place)
Bum Genius 4.0 Pocket Diaper
Adjustable snaps to adjust rise on diaper - I'm setting this to a newborn size.
Since this is a pocket diaper, I am putting the insert into pocket. This Bum Genius came with two different sized inserts - one for newborn and another for the 'one-size'.
Then, you'd just put it on like any other disposable diaper. Instead of an adhesive tab or velcro, this diaper has adjustable snaps to fit baby as he grows!
Bum Genius Elemental Cloth Diaper - with organic cotton
Instead of having to putting an insert into a pocket, this diaper is an All-in-One diaper - the fabric liner is already attached to the diaper. Same snaps as the 4.0 to adjust rise to fit baby. This one is currently set on the smallest rise and there is quite a bit of additional fabric on the liner available - not sure how I would handle that...
Put it on just like the 4.0 or any other disposable diaper. Multiple snaps allow you to adjust the fit as baby grows!
FuzziBunz - One Size Pocket Diaper
Another pocket diaper - place insert into diaper pocket.
Put the diaper on - more snaps to adjust fit on baby. This one doesn't adjust the same on rise, so not sure how this would work on a smaller newborn. FuzziBunz came with two inserts and replacement elastic for when the elastic around the legs gets too stretched out!
