GETTING STARTED WITH CLOTH DIAPERING
When considering the amounts to buy, take into account the age of the individual and how often you plan to wash. Newborns and infants will need 10 to 12 changes a day. Toddlers will need 8 to 10. Adults will need 4-8. Most cloth diaperers wash diapers every 2 or 3 days.
If you decide to try fitted cloth diapers be sure to try a sampling before investing in a large number of any style. Fitted diapers vary quite a bit in size and fit from one individual to the next.
Your cloth diapering system can be all one type of diaper or a combination of prefolds, fitted and all-in-ones.
Wash and dry new cloth diapers 5 to 8 times to remove the natural waxes and fluff up rthe fibers. This will also increase the absorbancy of your cloth diapers. Do not worry if you notice that your cloth diapers "quilt up" during this process. This is normal.
To extend the life of our cloth diapers and covers, hang to dry. It is especially important to do this with AIO's and diaper covers to preserve their waterproofing ability.
