Change 3 Cloth Diapers Per Day Challenge

Change is Good - Use Cloth Diapers!

I think this is a great challenge that www.cottonbabies.com has come up with. I buy most of my cloth diapering supplies from Cotton Babies.  Their challenge is to get people to use at least 3 cloth diapers every day.  Personally I use about 8 cloth diapers every day.  I do use disposable diapers at night (usually just 1 per night) and when I’m going shopping or to visit someone.  I don’t want to mess with cloth diapers on the go (I know it’s possible, but I’m not that much of a saint!)

I personally use Bummis Super Whisper Wraps with Chinese Prefold Cloth Diapers with the blue string or Indian Prefolds are good, too.  I can use the same whisper pant several times in a row while just replacing the wet diaper.  Eventually the whisper pant gets damp or poop on it and then I toss it in to wash it with the diapers.

I use Imse Vimse Biodegradable/Flushable Liners to make life easier (just flush them when they’re covered with poo).  If she just peed then we throw them in with the cloth diapers to be washed and reused.  They can be reused 3 or 4 times before they start to fall apart and then we toss them.

Occasionally I use a Hemp Insert (diaper doubler) for when the baby might have an extra wet diaper (or the cloth diaper I’m using is getting too thin).

So to take the 3 Cloth Diapers per day challenge, visit their Facebook page or you can make your commitment at the Change 3 Things website.
