I partnered with Cotton Babies to bring you this post. All information is honest and my own!
When my second son was born we didn’t have any money. I had been on bedrest almost the entire pregnancy and unable to work. I had to have a cerclage put in to get my little one to stay in as long as possible. It all worked and he was born. He was rushed to the NICU just for a few hours as he had a fever. But other than that he was perfect and the bedrest was a success. But because of my lack of being able to work we were so broke. It was at this time I began to investigate cloth diapering.
I ended up opening a cloth diaper store/natural parenting store and stocked my favorite diapers, baby wearing slings, baby carriers and so much more. I ran my diaper store for 7 years. Then it just felt like it was time to get out and do something different. I consider myself a cloth diaper expert as I did cloth diaper both my last two babies for so long. So check out what I think you need to cloth diaper a newborn.
What do I need to buy to cloth diaper a newborn?
Watch the video below and see what you need to cloth diaper your newborn.
So here’s a list of what you need for a newborn according to me!
12 organic cotton prefolds in newborn size
3-4 newborn covers
3-4 all in ones newborn size for caregivers or when you’re out and about
3-4 pocket diaper in newborn size like the bum Genius
snappi for keeping the prefold diaper around baby
fleece liners to keep baby feeling dry
A diaper pail
A diaper sprayer
a wet bag for holding diapers when you’re out
This gives you enough diapers that you can wash every 2 days. When they get older they go through less diapers then they do when they’re so little. I got this diaper stash at Cotton Babies. They have all your cloth diapering needs there! So make sure you check them out!
One of the reasons I recommend getting a variety is because if this is your first baby you don’t know what you’ll like best. This is one way to get to try different diapers to see what you like! Then when you go into smalls and mediums you can try the one size diapers that fit so well once they’re no longer so tiny!
