Why did you consider cloth diaper?
One of my friends cloth diapered. She introduced me to the idea.
What does your stash look like?
Mostly covers with inserts/prefolds so I can use covers multiple times. You already have a lot of laundry with the extra baby. Save space with a mix of A12 diapers and covers. Her stash is about 33 diapers.
You think you need a double stash for twins, but you don’t. If you consider covers, and swap out inserts/prefolds you can get away with smaller stash.
My twins are shaped totally different. My boy is 90th percentile and the girl is the 10th percentile. A hack to make sense of different snap settings was the prints for one kid or a solid for the other kid.
What is your favourite diaper in your stash?
I have a miscellaneous stash, primarily Lil Helpers and Nerdy Momma’s. I use Lil Helpers during the day on both kid, and the Nerdy Momma’s AIO at night.
Did you find traveling with cloth and twins a challenge?
We used disposables in the beginning because they were super tiny. There are newborn hacks, but we used the disposables the hospital sent home with us. I’m more used to using cloth diapers than disposables, so cloth diapering was the best choice when traveling.
It’s just become part of our life and can’t imagine not doing. It’s not all or nothing.
Biggest Cloth Diaper Challenge?
The poop – Invest in a diaper sprayer with two or more kids because it’s nice to deal with the poop. It was a challenge at first, and a challenge when traveling. The babies are in transition phase of solids and flushing it is a scrappy mess.
Listen to a show about cloth diapers and poop.
It’s not much different than cloth diapering a singleton, and bringing people on has been a challenge, but if you can show them the modernization of it, it really can be a great journey.
She timed herself to fold a stash of diapers — it wasn’t that long.
