What is your washing routine? Rinse in our bathroom, hot wash with Rockin Green, dry on low

What brand/ type are you using? Mostly Flips with the stay dry insert. I have a few g-diapers too.

What is your washing routine? Every other day I pre-wash cold, then wash hot with All Free and Clear. Tumble dry.

How is it going? Great! Much easier than I expected. I love how much money we're saving!

What brand/ type are you using? Thirsties covers with Indian prefolds

What is your washing routine? I wash every day, hot, with All free and Clear

How is it going? Good! I'm glad I went with the big size of diaper instead of Newborn prefolds, because wets through the few newborn size diapers we have, almost instantly.

Share a pic of your LO in fluff! I will have to find one

I have happy heiny's kissaluvz aio, fuzzibunz, bumgenius, rumparooz, swaddlebees, and I think that is it maybe... I dunno my brain is failing me.

What is your washing routine?
I just toss them in with purex free and clear. Hot wash, cold rinse. Second rinse then dry on medium or low. I rinse super bad poopy dipes ahead of time.

How is it going?
Good. Have had some leaks when she holds her pee and super soaks but besides that it is great. Cloth wipes are easier than I thought.

What brand/ type are you using? Unbleached indian prefolds, NB size ~ Osocozy stay dry prefolds infant size (the BEST!) ~ GMD NB prefolds ~ Thirsties XS and One size covers, Weehuggers size 1
He's also fit into some of big brothers diapers; OS Happy Heinys and OS Fuzzi Bunz


What is your washing routine? Every other day, cold rinse ~ hot wash ~ 2x cold rinse. Air dry covers and dry prefolds on low.

How is it going? Great! Even easier than I expected. I wish I would have cloth diapered DS2 from the start.

Here he is in a Bummis Whisper wrap NB size. He's kinda outgrown it now, but more importantly, not a fan of these so it's retired!

First I want to share how happy I am that there are so many ladies in here CDing!! It fills me with joy (odd I know)!!

What brand/ type are you using? GMD Prefolds, Bummis covers and Imse Vimse Covers. We just moved onto the Small size after being in the NB size for the first 8 weeks.

What is your washing routine? It was every other day when I was on the NB size as I had less of them and he was pooping far more than he is now. Now I can go a few days! I wash twice on a long cold extra rinse wash. I wish I only had to do it once, but I've noticed that once just isn't enough and I don't want to wash on hot as I don't want to wash the stains in. After this I dry the diapers on warm but take the covers out and do not dry them.

How is it going? Great! I really couldn't be happier. Each time I do laundry I am so happy that I haven't added that much to a landfill!!

This was when he was brand new and he was getting ready for his first shower!!

What brand/ type are you using? Mostly Fuzzibunz, but a few stragglers including thirsties and about 8 blueberries. I also have G diapers for laundry day backup, but so far I haven't had to crack into those.

What is your washing routine? Okay, don't hate me, but my mom is washing them for me. This was her baby gift to me. 6 Months worth of CD laundry. However...SHE is doing the normal routine, with Charlie's Soap, and I bring her a load about every other day.

How is it going? GREAT! (Well, I mean, how could it be otherwise when one doesn't have to do their own CD laundry, right?) I too love the fact that I'm not spending money on disposables, and that I'm saving all of that landfill space. And really, they're super easy to use. I'm finding that I love the snaps versus the velcro, surprisingly. I feel like I can get a better fit that way.

Share a pic of your LO in fluff! I'll have to take one tomorrow and amend my post.

I'm preferring the snaps over the velcro too. Even though I always attach the velcro to the laundry tabs, they still stick to everything in the laundry and get yucky

I know, I'm super spoiled. I mean really, this is my second kid; my mom didn't have to do anything. No one had to buy anything. Totally one of the advantages (and believe me...their are major disadvantages as well) of living next to one's parents. It makes this situation entirely doable. Which is nice since a laundry service, living where I live, is decidedly NOT an option. Plus, I don't think that laundry services will take the AIO's or pockets, will they? I thought they just did the standard prefold. (Again, what do I know about laundry services, though?)
