WHICH STYLE OF CLOTH DIAPERS SHOULD I INVEST IN? Each style of diaper fits each baby differently. It's a good idea to try a few of each diaper you think will suite your lifestyle before you invest in a whole stash. Follow this link for more information on Cloth Diaper Styles.  
    HOW MANY DIAPER WILL I NEED? Deciding how many diapers you should buy depends on the age of your baby and how often you want to wash the diapers. Newborns will go through up to 10-12 diapers each day, as your baby gets older she will go through less diapers. Here's what we suggest to get started:
      WHAT OTHER CLOTH DIAPER ACCESSORIES WILL I NEED? Going out while cloth diapering is easy. All you need are travel sized wet bags for your dirty diapers and mini wet bags for your clean wipes. Use gentle cleansers as desired - great for hand washing too! Babies who wear cloth are less prone to rash. However if you do use anything, protect your babies bottom and your diapers with a cloth diaper safe barrier. Flushable Liners will make cleaning solids easier. Simply lay in the diaper, and flush after use. Diaper Sprayers easily attach to your toilet. Spray diaper over your toilet bowl to remove solids before washing.
        HOW DO I WASH MY CLOTH DIAPERS? Please follow each individual manufacturers directions for prepping and washing your diapers to protect the warranty. Follow this link for Cloth Diapering Laundry.
