Cloth Diapers on the Line

Oh how much fun it was to wash all of my cloth diapers for the first time but even more exciting was hanging them on the clothesline!

Sweet baby diapers!

My two Flip covers and two Bum Genius diapers!

More Bum Genius diapers!


My stash currently includes 2 Flip covers and 6 inserts, 6 Bum Genius One-Size Diapers, 1 Bum Genius Small All-in-One, 2 Fuzzi Bunz One-Size, and 1 Econobum cover & insert (I also have 4 Gerber diapers that I’ve doubled to try to use as liners with the Econobum cover…2 of the Gerber diapers is about the same thickness of the 1 Econobum insert)! All of these equal 20 “diapers” (or 20 different changes) before I would need to wash!

I’m anxious to begin cloth diapering and am determined to be successful! We’re waiting for about a month or so to start since we’re mainly using one-size cloth diapers and they will be huge on a small baby, not to mention I will be adjusting to my new role as a mama and washing diapers every other day could be challenging during the first few weeks!

Once we do start cloth diapering I’ll be sharing all about it and the diapers we like the most!

  1. I think it’s so funny that you were excited about washing them – truthfully, I’m the same way! I can’t wait to hear how things go with Paxton and the cloth diapers!

    What do you use to wash them? I found a great detergent online, but would rather have something I could pick up locally. I’m just not sure what to use!

    1. I was recommended Charlie’s Soap by a friend who cloth diapers & have read about it on other blogs too. I purchased it from Amazon.

      When I ordered my Fuzzi Bunz, the information paper I received said that Tide Regular or Free, Cheer Regular or Free, Arm & Hammer Regular or Free & Purex were approved for use on them.

      Here is a link to the Cotton Babies (maker of BG, Flip, Econobum) Cloth Diaper Blog about detergents. They say you really shouldn’t use “mainstream” detergent but if you do the best to use is Tide Free!

      Hope this helps!

  2. I would love to see a comparison of your daily routine before Paxton and after Paxton. Please. 🙂

  3. I love all the colors! Having cloth diapers are going to be lots of fun. I never used them, but many of my friends around me did, and they had lots of joy while using them 😀 (And plenty of funny moments too!)

  4. Oh! At Almost Frugal yesterday, there was also a blog post about cloth pads. Which ROCK. And because they’re so awesome, I have no problem deciding now that if/when I have kids, they will be cloth diapered. So much more fun than disposables!

  5. I excited to see what you think of them! I think it’s a good idea to wait a few weeks until you both adjust. I’ve been debating on using them with my baby girl so I’ll be sure to check back with you!
