Hi everyone! I am a new mom-to-be and I am planning on using cloth diapers for my baby. However, I am a bit intimidated by the thought of washing and caring for them properly. I want to make sure I am doing everything right to keep my baby healthy and comfortable. Can anyone give me some tips on the best ways to wash and care for cloth diapers? Any specific brands or products you recommend? Thank you in advance!
Hi there! I've been a cloth diaper user for the past 9 months and would love to share my two cents. Firstly, when it comes to washing, I suggest doing a pre-wash with cold water and no detergent to get rid of any excess pee or poop. Next, do a hot water wash with detergent and add another rinse after. It's important to get all the soap out of the diapers, otherwise they won't be as absorbent.
I use GroVia Hybrid diapers and they have been fantastic. They come in adorable prints and are very high quality. For a diaper cream, I use GroVia Magic Stick which has worked wonders for me. It's all-natural and doesn't interfere with cloth diaper absorbency.
One other thing I'd like to mention is to wash your cloth diapers every 2-3 days. Any longer than that and they can get really stinky, and no one wants that! Hope this helps and good luck with cloth diapering!
