Thanks to Charlie Banana for sponsoring this post on cloth diapering.
I just joined the many moms who cloth diaper. My experience so far has been fantastic (minus the poopy mess, which I don’t mind by the way). Cloth diapering is not for every one and many people just opt in for disposable because it’s just easier and life can be so busy to wash cloth diaper every day.
I’m a stay at home working mom and I’m very busy all day long but I still have to manage my cloth diapering.
My mother, cloth diaper 8 out of my 9 sisters (including me) not because of choice but because they just couldn’t always afford disposable diapers. To save money, she resorted to the greener and natural way to diapering. I talked to mom so she could give me tips and share her experience with cloth diapering. Back then, there was no cute clothe diapers like today, instead there were simple non-absorbent piece of fabric and giant safety pins and a plastic cover. My mom would still buy disposable diapers to have in hand that she sometimes used when out and about. Other times, she used a plastic bloomer type to cover the diaper when out of the house so the cloth diaper wouldn’t leak. To clean the diapers, she had a couple of buckets outside her home, one bucket to spray off the mess right away and the other with chlorine to let the cloth diapers sit until she hand washed them.
Now a days, cloth diapering has become more of a trend, with a better satisfying experience. Modern cloth diapers today, can vary with features like microfiber lining, leak-proof outer shell, disposable inserts. There are even hundreds of cloth diapering products like poopy sprayers, Eco-friendly detergents, wool cloth diaper dryer balls and more. It may be overwhelming by the many cloth diaper options out there but I found that Charlie Banana works best for me and my family.

I also heard that cloth diaper are better for boys because it regulates heat, which can affect scrotal temperatures and helps prevent yeast on girls. We got to protect those baby boy jewels.
