Take a scroll and soak in all the information in one spot. If you don’t already follow the ClothDiaperPodcast on Instagram, go do that and check out IGTV for basics, and the feed for more.
1. Why do you want to cloth diaper?
There are many different ways to cloth diaper, and understanding why you want this for your family helps identify which choice might be best for you.
Are you cloth diapering for the environmental impact, to create less waste, for the health of baby, for financial reasons, or cute-factor, or just because?
2. What is your budget? Financial capability?
Cloth Diapering is as cheap as you want it to be and as expensive as you could dream.
Disposable diapering is the same. You can pay 15 cents per diaper of 50 cents per diaper.
It depends on your wants for manufacturing and quality. There’s also second hand market for cloth diapers on Facebook; and the ability to repurpose things to make a diaper.
3. What does your life look like?
Lots of cloth diapering conversations circle around the lifestyle of the stay-at-home parent living in a single-family home in North America. Is that you.
It might not be.

What type of diaper?
Choosing the right diaper for you isn’t an all or nothing kind of situation. You don’t have to pick a style of cloth diaper and stick with it.
You can, and I encourage you, to try different styles of cloth diapers.
You might find fitted diapers work best for night, pockets for daycare, and covers and flats for home.
Or maybe flat diapers are the only choice for you because you have to hand wash. We can still find cloth diapers that are easy and convenient.
