How do I get started using cloth diapers?

GETTING STARTED WITH SUNBABY DIAPERS

Ready to get started with Sunbaby cloth diapers? Here is what you will need:

  • 24 to 36 cloth diapers (Be sure to wash new diapers 5 times in HOT water before use to remove any manufacturing residue and increase absorbency)
  • 24 to 48 inserts (More if your child is a heavy wetter)
  • 1 diaper pail or large wet bag
  • 1 small wet bag or other type of smaller container that will fit in a diaper bag to hold soiled diapers while out and about (A large Ziploc will do)
  • 2 to 3 dozen cloth diaper wipes (If you choose to go this route)
  • 1 wipe warmer or container to hold cloth wipes (A plastic disposable wipe case will do)
  • Cloth wipe "Juice" or recipe to make your own (We use 2 cups warm water, 1 tablespoon of baby wash, 2 drops of tea tree oil, 2 drops of lavender oil)
  • Non-Zinc based diaper cream (Virgin coconut oil is a great and natural option)

When considering the amounts to buy, take into account the age of your baby. Newborns and infants will need 10 to 12 changes a day. Toddlers will need 8 to 10
