If cloth nappies are continued into toddlerhood (many parents switch to paper before this), toilet learning may be easier to accomplish, because direct contact between a sopping wet cloth nappy and skin makes a child very uncomfortable, more aware of being wet, and, hopefully, more inspired to use the potty.

  • Instead of putting your diapers outside I hang the covers over a hanger and put them in a room with a fan, I low/heat dry the inserts though, I only put mine in the sun to dry if I have a stain sun bleaching is like magic ��

  • I’ve watched so many videos abt cloth diapering and this one is one of the best! As complicated as it seems, you made it sound so easy. Haha. I’m excited to try!!!

  • Thank you for talking about the amount of disposables that are landing up in our landfills… I’m a grandmother and I used towelling diapers for all my children. Yes, I washed everyday but it was the most rewarding chore. I was so proud to see all my white diapers out on the line drying. We didn’t have a tumble drier. I’m so happy to see mothers today going back to cloth and not using disposables… Keep up the good work.

  • Thank you for mentioning flats. Cost effective, one size fits most. So clean, fast drying, versatile, easiest for hand wash and inside dry if necessary.
    I had a washer, dryer, and flats. I read where people are talking about two washing cycles to wash cloth diapers, I used one and maybe a short rinse before the wash cycle, and my baby’s diapers, flats, we’re always clean. I never had any stink issues. I hate the thought of the all in ones with one side covered with plastic. So it can never really wash as clean as a flat. Just my two cents.

  • I am looking into making my own cloth diapers. Mainly the pocket diapers. Do you know anyone that has done that? Has it helped drop the cost down some? For what I am looking at so far I am hoping it will. Thanks for making this video it is helping so much.:D

  • Ok.. so what about if your washer has a sanitizing option. I think it has very hot water… is it ok to use hot water on these diapers?
