With the known effects of disposable diapers on the environment and our wallets, cloth diapers are an increasingly popular option! They aren't necessarily the Gerber prefolds, pins, and rubber pants (although I did use those for a long time...and actually wore them myself back in the day. I inherited my use of cloth from my mother.) Besides, would you want your underwear to be made of paper and plastic? Me neither.
But when I decided to cloth diaper Jasper, I wanted something a little bit cuter.
As he got closer to arriving, I started looking for a cute cloth option. I found a few out there, but Cutiepoops had the most fabric options, and they were made by a mom, which was important to me.
Cutiepoops! They were so adorable - and so easy! Just as easy as a disposable. They don't require a plastic cover, because there is a PUL coating in the diaper itself. They have elastic at the legs and back, which helps hold in explosions.
The best feature of this diaper is the waterproof grab tab at the top of the front of the diaper, which gives you a dry place to hold onto while you remove the wet insert and clean off the diaper.
You take off the dirty diaper, shake off the poop into the potty (that is where it goes, after all!) pull out the insert and toss both pieces in the wash. They were easy to wash too, just wash in hot, rinse in cold, with free and clear detergent. I had a nice big collection of them, in all sorts of colors! Sadly, my boy outgrew them, and I had another one. Laundry for 6 people never ends already, before you add diapers to the mix! So I gave up.
But I want to encourage all of you to try them out. After the initial investment, we saved so much money for Jasper's first year!
It IS an investment though, and understanding that, Cutiepoops has decided to offer one of my readers a free diaper! The creator is offering a $15 gift certificate to the winner of this giveaway.
