HOW TO CHOOSE THE RIGHT CLOTH DIAPER?




Clearing Up Your Cloth Diaper  Confusion?


 In today's article, I'll try my best to guide you with the things you should consider before purchasing a cloth diaper. 

 Normally before buying a cloth diaper, things that are inside our mind is to save money,  cute prints, easy to wash & we thought that it can only be a type of this nappy, with different prints or colors. After a while, we started to see terms like pocket diaper, bamboo cloth diaper, hemp, AI2, AIO, minky, fitted cloth diaper things that made you more confused. This is the reason you click on this post right?  To clear up all that question and starts ticking some type of cloth diaper and crossing other diaper.

 So, for not making you even more confused, I'll cut my introduction short and starts on how to choose the correct cloth diaper for your baby.

  Before buying a cloth nappy, things that you need to ask is:
  • Is the cloth diaper suitable for my baby's skin?
  • How can the cloth diaper size fits my baby?
  • Is the cloth diaper package comes with soaker & is it enough?
  • How if my baby is in potty training?

 The answer comes with this things to be considered:
  • Type of skin: (sensitive/normal)
  • Size: 
  • Heavy wetter: 
  • Potty training:
  • Active baby: 
1) The best solution for extra sensitive skin babies is by using material as bamboo (or bamboo charcoal), raw silk or hemp next to baby's skin as cloth diaper inner, cloth diaper liner or even insert for the AI2 (all-in-two) cloth nappies. Then use bamboo inserts to add up extra protection. This feature you could get from brands like Baby Land Bamboo or Bamboo Lite AI2.

But if your baby only have irritations or rashes due to the effect of chlorine from the disposable diaper or baby's own urine, skin next to bamboo fleece (or silk) is not so essential. You can use cloth diaper with micro fleece inner or suede cloth inner with bamboo or hemp as an insert. The bamboo insert or hemp inserts is for additional antibacterial function or extra soaking features.

2) As for size, each of the brands have their own size ranges. Some of the brands are not suitable for newborns because it is too big. Cloth diapers that is suitable for new born are, BabyLand, Papoose, ALVA & Bamboolite. Make sure you have the targeted range for potty train before using a big range size cloth diaper like Happy BUM or Weegro. It could reach nearly 18kgs but you have to consider that will your baby wear a nappy until they reach nearly 18kgs? If they do, just take the Happy BUM or Weegro it is really worth it. 

For parents that just could not figure out the right adjustment of size snaps on the diaper, one size too small the diaper become too tight but 1 size bigger it became loose. For this I strongly suggest mothers to use the TRUE FIT BambooLite. You do not need to loosen the cloth diaper size before washing, and it would be after a few months that you need to loosen the TRUE FIT band for the perfect size of your baby. The TRUE FIT Bamboo Lite ranges from 3kg (newborn) to 14kgs.

3) Heavy wetter babies need to wear double inserts all the time for the range of 5 to 6 hour diapering time. But, for extra absorbent, hemp inserts are the best. Because of its oily features for the 1st few washes, do not mix wash it with other type of insert. It is better to wash it separately with hot water for the 1st few pre-wash stages. After that, you can wash the hemp material with others without any problem. Combination of hemp + microfibre inserts (or hemp + bamboo) could reach 10 to 11 hours for normal wetters and there are so many customers feedback that saying 
"Amazing, there are no more leaks". The hemp + microfibre insert combination comes as a package in the Happy BUM package. 

4) As for potty training, the best is to use the ZigieZag pull-up pants. When toddlers can start telling that they have to go (for wee wee or some other terms), you can train them by saying "You can take off your pants", creating toddlers a mind set of he or she is wearing a pant, and not a diaper (and they will get into trouble if they wet their pant or spilling 'something' on mother's carpet.. Really BIG trouble.)

The pull-up is also suitable for parents that do not like fussy diapers that needs to snaps or straps here & there. Unlike normal cloth diapers that needs to lay baby down for wearing, the pull-up is easy to wear even while our toddler is standing. This is great for travelling. No need to find extra space for changing nappies. 

5) Active babies are in two terms, babies while in active activities such as swimming or really ACTIVE babies. While swimming, babies or toddlers could wear the ZigieZag Show Off & Swim (ZigieZag SOS) collection without using any inserts. The ZigieZag SOS also can be used during normal days on regular basis but with extra feature that it can be worn during swimming activities. (really fashionable & cute prints)

For babies that are really ACTIVE, you can use the snaps button for the waist tightener and not using the velcro. Why? First, the velcro zapping sound only would attract your child to take off the diaper without your supervision and secondly the snaps button is little bit harder for those tiny hands to play with snap on & off. Trust me, the last thing you want to be messing around your floor apart from the toys, papers, color pencils & crayons, are the things inside the nappy. I am brave enough to say that everybody will agree with me on this.. :)
