Dear family & friends of the gift recipient - thank you for honoring the new parents the choice to cloth diaper their new baby!! You may wonder "Why?" Our diapers are not like the ones your grandmother used those old days. Modern diapers have become much easier to use and to manage. Please refer to our page "Why Cloth Diaper?"
|Every baby goes through approximately 6,000 diapers
from birth to potty training.
This results in an average $2,500 spent on disposables,
and those sit in the landfill for about 500 years.
Average Cloth Diapers $500
When taken care of well, it can be re-used on your next baby!

Once I set up your registry page, you will be given the direct link to your registry. Give this link to your guests, family/friends/collegues.
With each order we receive, the registry will be updated to reflect how many you "received." We have no control over guests ordering more than what you wanted.

Guideline - What will we need to cloth diaper our baby?
|Newborns||Diaper Kit (24 prefold diapers, 6 small covers, 3 rolls bio-soft liners, 5 reusable fleece liners, large wet bag, and User's Guide.)|
|OR 24-36 prefolds (24 if you wish to wash every other day or 36 for every other day's laundry) and 6-10 newborn/small covers|
|If you are planning on childcare, check with them if they're willing to accept prefolds/cover, otherwise, All-In-One, All-In-One Pocket, or Pocket with Velcro/Aplix closures are good alternative for day care. Note most daycare are more accepting to use cloth if it's as easy to use as disposables. For newborns, Tiny Fits and AMP Stay Dry AIO are most popular.|
|Note most one-size fit babies better once they reach about 10 lbs, at least. They may not fit at birth but eventually around 2-3 months they will fit better.|
|Guideline as to how many you need - how many diaper does the child go through in 24 hours? Mulitiple that by 2 if you want to do the wash every other day or multiple by 3 to wash every 3 days (at the most, as recommended by manufacturers.) You can choose sized (small/medium/large) or one-size diaper (fits baby up to about 35-40 lbs which is potty training time.) Diapers last longer when washed every 3 days than 2 days.
For babies who sleep through the night and are heavy wetters, fitted diapers with covers are recommended for nighttime (mulitple how many changes at night times wash every 2 or 3 days and about 1 cover for every 2-3 fitted.)
|Two bags are recommended (so you have one to use while the other is in the wash)|
|Pail Liners||Two pail liners are recommended (so you have one to use while the other is in the wash)|
||Optional - attaches to the toilet and used to spray the solids (poop) off into the toilet.|
|Flushable Liners||Breastfeeding poop is water soluable (washes out easily in the wash) but when baby is on formula or solid, these liners make it easier to remove the solids especially when you're out of the house (or when you don't have a diaper sprayer.)|
|Detergents||Most store-bought detergents are not safe for cloth diapers due to its ingredients that become problematic with build-ups. Please refer to Real Diaper Industry Association's Detergent Database - make sure the detergent has NO enzyme, brighteners, dye, fragrances, or fabric softener.
All detergents we carry are made for cloth diapers but may also be used for household laundry!
