Traditional diaper rash creams have heavy oils and other ingredients in them (e.g. zinc oxide and cod liver oil) that stick to cloth diapers, causing them to leak and retain odors. Unfortunately you’ll need to use some elbow grease to make them useful again using the following steps.
When you consider the fact that the average person will spend anywhere from $1800 to $2100 to diaper a baby with disposables from birth to potty training – it’s not far fetched that budget restraints are a common reason why many mamas turn towards cloth diapers. But while you really can save money by using cloth diapers, it’s hard figuring out where to begin. Here are a few tips to help you make the best cloth diapering choices:
With the exception of prefold diapers, all of the other diapers listed below are available in 'One-Size'. This means the diaper can be adjusted to fit your baby from 10 to 40 lbs. The benefit of one-size diapers is that they save you in the long run because you won't have to purchase multiple diapers for the various sizes of your baby. The downside to one-size diapers is that they are very bulky on newborns and don't truly provide a good fit until baby is about 10 to 12 lbs.
Vinegar is a wonderful all-natural solution for your wash. It can be used to kill odor-causing bacteria, remove buildup from your diapers, soften your diapers and eliminate static. However, if used too often (i.e. more than once a month), it can break down the PUL in your diapers causing them to leak. Additionally, when used in hard water areas, it can react with the minerals in your water and cause your diapers to retain odors and bacteria.
