  1. I love cloth because it’s just so darn cute! I’m also thrilled that I won’t have to buy a single diaper for baby #2 who is due in June!

  2. I was terrified to try cloth diapers. I started a small stash of prefolds and one BG when my son was an infant. We were told how insane we were by both of our families for even wanting to attempt cloth diapering. But last month I decided I was going to just leap into it and start cloth diapering. We built up our stash and started cloth diapering our son at 14 months old. I love it! I love the money savings, not having all the chemicals against my sons skin, and regret not starting 14 months sooner.

  3. I think it is my husband who is scared about the cloth diaper venture we will be taking with baby #2. In his words, “The poop…the poop scares me!”

  4. I like the idea of not having to run to the store every month to buy more diapers. I’m concerned about the extra work to take care of the diapers.

  5. I love Cloth because I don’t have blowouts and I know my baby’s bum isn’t covered in chemicals. Plus they’re super cute!

  6. I like Artsy Fartsy Foo Foo on Facebook. The doublers are absolutely amazing and so are the nursing pads!!

  7. I love cloth for SO many reasons! First I love how much money it saves my family (which is important becauce I am a stay at home mom). I also love that it is safe for my baby and the environment. And of course I love how cute cloth diapers are! πŸ™‚

  8. When this baby is born, I am definitely going to cloth diaper, but I am worried about the initial $ investment. I know that overall it is way cheaper than disposables, but it seems like you have to pay so much up front. Guess I just have to convince the fam to help me buy all my hippy mama stuff like cloth diapers, slings and a doula instead of all the unnecessary plastic stuff they usually want to buy for baby showers πŸ™‚

  9. I love cloth diapers because they’re so customizable as far as absorbency goes. You can add more or less as you need it – can’t do that with disposables.

    And they’re insanely cute πŸ™‚ Can’t forget that!

  10. I love that i can cut down on waste and what goes into the land fills by reusing my diapers, it also helps they are so colorful and fun to use. Even if Wyatt’s Nana did buy him a purple diaper.

  11. Hey Jill, great work on the video!! Those hemp inserts sound great! I love anything that helps reduce the bulk. We’ve been cloth diapering for a while now. My biggest challenge is daycare. Probably should get more AIOs! Have you tried the Bummis/Tots Bots Easy Fits?? Love them!

  12. I’m new to the CD world. I am expecting Baby #3 in Feb and am alittle nervous about washing/keeping them clean. WOuld love to win this thank you!

  13. I am just venturing into the world of cloth diapering and it is very intimidating because there are so many different kinds of diapers and systems! I’m gathering as much info as I can and checking out reviews on all different kinds of diapers.


  14. I am just starting to try to research cloth diapers; we are expecting our first in May. I am still feeling a bit overwhelmed by all of the choice. My biggest fear is that I will get grossed out and not stick with it!

  15. I love cloth diapers. In the beginning, though, I was most overwhelmed by the learning curve. I had no idea what all these terms like “prefolds, pockets, wet bags, etc.” meant. It seemed really overwhelming to jump into it, but once I did, I never looked back!

  16. I’m worried about picking the right diapers for our baby when its such a huge investment. I feel like I need them before the baby comes but then how will I know if it going to be the right fit? Reviews are helpful but there is almost too much info out there & definitely waaaay too many choices.

  17. I am worried about using prefolds. I LOVE the idea but what if it takes me too long to get the fold right, you know? My daughter does not have unlimited patience when it comes to diapering πŸ™‚

  18. I like not having the chemicals by my baby’s private parts. I love the fun colors and shopping for my diapers. I don’t even mind washing them!

  19. Even though we’ve been cloth diapering for year I still wonder if there is something “better” out there, but with such big investments involved it’s hard to try everything!

  20. Right now I am worried about finding the right cloth diaper for our little one due in May. There are so many to choose from! I plan is to try a few brands to find one that works best for us. Fuzzibunz is one of the brands that I would love to try out!

  21. I love that you can reuse then instead of adding more diapers to landfills. Also that they are cheaper in the long-run and better for baby’s skin.

  22. How many diapers do you need for a baby?
    I am due in May and have no idea how many cloth diapers I should buy…

    Unfortunately I don’t live in America or I would just rent them.

    I am thinking that I will buy some newborn sized diapers for the first few months ~ how many would I need and would I need more than one size?

    And then getting one size diapers for the rest of the time ~ how many would I need of those?

    I don’t have a drier either, so that might affect how many I would need due to longer drying times.

    Any help with this would be greatly appreciated!

    Thank you ~


  23. I’m thinking about using cloth diapers for my second child, but I’m nervous about keeping up with the washing part (I hate doing laundry!) and also getting solids off well enough before putting the diapers in the washing machine.

  24. My main motivation for cloth diapers in the first place was to avoid the chemicals in disposables. Since then, it’s been the blow-out containment, fun colors & patterns, cost savings, and eco-friendliness that has made me love them even more.

  25. I love cloth diapers now but I was really intimidated at first by all of the types and styles of cloth diapers. Good thing pregnancy is 9 months and gave me plenty of time to research. I only wish now that I had CD’ed my newborn, but I not using cloth with your first newborn seems pretty typical. It might have been too much while also learning breastfeeding.

  26. I am in the process of Stocking up on cloth diaper for our first child. I cant wait to use cloth diapers on our baby. They only thing I worried about is the whole cleaning process and messing up the diapers.

  27. I’m most excited about not having my littles’ butts sitting in icky chemicals all day. I’m most worried about making sure they are super clean and not full of germs after being washed!

  28. I’m scared that they’re going to be tons of work. I’m already so overextended…I don’t want to take on more than I can handle.

  29. I’m excited about my stash of cloth b/c I have so many cute diapers and excited about all the money I’m going to save. The only thing that scares me is whether or not I’m washing properly/using the right detergent/etc.

  30. I LOVE CDing. We have never (in 17 months) had a poo blowout. That makes me want to bow at the feet of my CDs.

  31. I love cloth diapering because it is economical. I enjoy knowing how much money I am spending in the long run. Plus, I enjoy my DS’s fluffy bottom! πŸ™‚

    I am still learning though about different brands/types that may fit my DS the best. I am addicted to researching cloth diapers online.

  32. It’s hard to pick one thing I love the most about cloth daipers, so I’ll say because they are so gosh darn cute.

  33. i like cloth because its “cheaper” better for the enviroment (thats the BIG one!) and that its healthier!
    what scares me most about them is the increased handling of poo!

  34. I’ve been using cloth on my daughter for about 8 months now, so I’m over the scary parts. I am intrigued by prefolds and newborn diapers though! We didn’t start using cloth until my daughter was 6 months old, so we never experienced cloth with a tiny baby. I’m looking forward to trying prefolds and newborn diapers with our next baby!

  35. What’s scares me the most about Cloth diapering is putting the diapers in my nice washer and dryer…

  36. Um I love everything about cloth. Probably the biggest thing is that we have never really had much diaper rash and we hardly ever have leaks. I ALWAY have leaks when I have to use ‘sposies.

    I could take or leave the Fuzzi Bunz but I REALLY need some more hemp doublers!!!

  37. The best part of cloth diapering to me is the money we’ll save by making the upfront investment. I feel so much more informed about all of the options after watching your vlog!

  38. I like Artsy Fartsy on Facebook. Which should be great b/c I always seem to miss the products when they come on for sale.

  39. The best part of cloth diapering is that it makes me feel like a better mom (because I am saving my family money, helping the environment, and they are better for my child too). I also secretly like it when people initially think I am some sort of super star for cloth diapering. Oh but then I explain how easy it is, and the myth is bust πŸ™‚

  40. i’m most interrested in the environmental aspect. I’m most scared because i’m already not the best at laundry! lol

  41. Forcing myself and my husband to keep up on the laundry is the biggest hurdle I’m dreading when we start cloth diapering. We suck at doing the laundry for ourselves.

  42. I have just started dabbling in cloth diapers for my 11 month old baby. Late to the game, I know. Being a frugal person, it kills me to spend 20 cents (if I get a good deal) every time I have to change a diaper. Also, you can’t deny the cuteness of a fluffy bum!

  43. I’ve exclusively cloth diapered my 1-year-old since he was about 6 months, and did so on and off with him beforehand, and my now 3-year-old when she was a baby.

    I love how economical it is, and depending on which method you choose, and it can be a very simple process. It’s also healthy – my little guy never gets diaper rashes.

    Was I supposed to limit this to one reason? Oops! I also love that it coincides nicely with early potty-training.

    Oh – and I hate cleaning the poops out, but that comes with the territory. Yay for diaper liners!

  44. My favorite part about cloth diapers is that they are free from all the nasty chemicals in disposables. My hemp is all disintegrating right now, so I would love to win some new stuff.

  45. I am pregnant with my first and would like to try cloth diapering. However, I am completely overwhelmed by all the options and am not sure where to start! That is what scares me the most!

  46. I’m generally a CD fan, but we’re at a weird spot right now with build up. Trying to figure it out. That’s what frustrates me the most. But then again I’ve never used a detergent made for CD, so maybe it’s my own cheap fault. **Off to find some Charlies or Crunchy Clean**

  47. I am so happy you explained the options for cloth diapers. Choosing a style to use is one of most difficult parts -besides convincing my husband to use them. I will definitely be showing him the all-in-one BG diaper to convert him!

  48. I have loved cloth diapering so far. My biggest frustration now is that my baby is in daycare three days a week (he wears disposables there) so I am not using very many cloth diapers before I really need to wash them again. I have tried waiting longer so I had a full load but that is not a good idea. Really should wash them every two to three days or the stink is hard to get out! I am hoping that I get to stay at home sometime in the near future so I can cloth diaper full time again!

  49. My favorite part of cloth diapering is how cute the baby looks in them! And also eliminating disposables from going into the landfill

  50. I am just a month into cloth diapering with my little guy. What I like the most is not having to run out to the store when our diaper stash gets low. What I like the least is how bulky the diapers can sometimes be.

  51. I love that I don’t have to buy sposies every week (and I am disguisted by the way sposies smell after they have been peed in, nasty!). And I love the look of CDs!

  52. I’m excited about trying cloth diapers with my baby. What intrigues me the most is the money saving aspect and the health benefits (no harsh chemicals on their most sensitive body parts!).

  53. I’m pregnant with my first and love how safe cloth is for your baby but am super scared/overwhelmed about all the cloth options.

  54. We’ve been cloth diapering for 4 months now (started when dd was 17 months), and I am LOVING the cost savings. DD is also rash free, whereas she had a constant rash with disposables. It does take a little extra time and effort, but seeing my baby’s bottom pain free (and extra cash in my wallet) is so worth it!

  55. I like cloth diapers because I use the same diapers for multiple kids and even then hopefully resell them or give them to relatives.

  56. The thing I’m most nervous about CDing is getting behind on the laundry! I think that will be the only time I’ll think maybe this wasn’t a good idea!

  57. to me, cloth diapering is still somewhat old fashioned and i like that feeling of tradition. it also satisfies my maternal instinct-it’s just one more thing that i do to take care of my baby.

  58. Pregnant with my first and due in 2 weeks. I have a good collection of diapers so far but kinda worried that I’m not as stocked up as I should be. I started thinking about cloth diapers before I became pregnant of course for the money aspect and the savings but really got into it after reading your blog and hearing other success stories.

  59. My favorite part is how darn cute they are. I know that’s shallow because there are so many other benefits, but there is just nothing cuter than my little boy wearing a fluffy blue diaper!

  60. I follow Baby Rabies on FB. I am due in a couple months and I am planning on giving cloth diapers a shot!

  61. Due in July – really excited to start CD! Thank you so much for the video, it really helped me understand all my options!

  62. Cloth diapering excites and scares me.. equally, I think. I’m afraid I’ll make the investment and not be able to stick with it.. but I want to do it to help the environment and limit waste. I would LOVE to win some starter supplies.

  63. I’m due in August and we are CD’ing. Although there are SO many different kinds to choose from, I have no idea what to buy or where to start!!

  64. I am due in February with my first and my biggest worry about CDing is figuring out the wash routine! Apart from that, though – I’ve had way too much fun building up a stash!

  65. I’m nervous that I’ll make the choice to cloth diaper and hate it! Especially since I’ve had to defend my choice to family and friends that don’t get it.

  66. I love everything about cloth diapering – that I’m putting nice fabrics against my son’s tush, that it’s better for the environment, that there are so many super cute diapers available, and that I never need to go to the store just to buy diapers!

  67. I love that I never have to run out to the store when I run out of diapers. I’m always a load of laundry away from clean diapers.

  68. What intrigues me most is how much money you can save while being good to the environment. Win Win!

  69. I like the cost savings the most about cloth diapering and the fact that a bunch of chemicals won’t be touching my baby’s bum. I get concerned I’m not going to wash them right and then I’ll screw them up.

  70. Your vlog really opened my eyes to all the new developments in cloth diapers and is making me think about going for it!

  71. Loved the Vlog- I even took notes! We’re planning on CD’ing with our baby expected in May 2011 and all of the options have been a bit overwhelming. It was great to be able to actually see some of the differences. My biggest concern with using cloth diapers is the laundering and troubleshooting (stains that won’t fade, rashes, leaks, blowouts, not finding the right fit).

  72. I love the fact that I don’t have to run out and get disposables ever– I have a nice supply of cloth diapers and even washing them doesn’t take too long!

  73. I’ve been babysitting a little girl that uses cloth diapers. I’m so glad to have the experience before having my own. It just solidifies my resolve to use them for my own.
    I’m really drawn to them b/c they are healthier, more economical, and environmentally better.

  74. I am still trying to convice the husband to get on board. I’m interested in cloth because of the economics of them and not having to use disposables that just seem so unnatural to me. Oh, and those little bums are just too stinken cute in them!!!

  75. I actually think the cloth diapers are easier than disposable because I always have them on hand and dont need to run out for them AND they are better for her future, ie green, less waste.
