I am hopeful that this considering cloth series is somewhat helpful for those navigating the diaper scene. I must admit, there are many terms to learn and lots of shorthand in the diaper community. I do not even want to get into how long it took me to figure out what the term "sposies" meant. Its embarrassing in hindsight. But, my mistakes might just be your gain! One category I heard a lot about but about which I had no firsthand knowledge is the AIO, or all in one diaper. So, for this installment we will get down and dirty with some AIO deets.
Considering Cloth: Pocket Diapers
If you are looking for an alternative to disposable diapers, you might be considering cloth. Cloth diapers are an option for those looking to decrease their environmental footprint and focus their consumption on reusable items. You may be imagining wrapping baby up in large sheets of linen that must be fold just so, stabbing yourself with diaper pins trying to fasten them, and the horrible smell of the plastic or "rubber" pants. I am here to tell you, cloth diapers are so much more than that. Its 2019, this is the age of the cloth diaper. Cloth manufacturers have listened to care givers and potential parents and cloth is now a huge range of products that are made to fit the needs of each child and family. On the scene today: pocket diapers. Be prepared to be amazed by the ease of use and customizable features of pocket style diapers.
I am a highly opinionated and sassy mother of three and wife to one. I hope you enjoy reading about my efforts to tackle the infuriating obstacles of life using straight talk and humor. If I say it, I mean it, or maybe I am being sarcastic. I like to focus on topics from my everyday life: parenting, cooking, crocheting, and a whole list of other things that inspire my rage.
