Favorite Cloth Diaper Things

We've been cloth diapering Baby James for eight months now, exclusively except during our move (that was a long week and a half!). We've got a great system down and I'd love to share my favorites things with you (with links to Amazon! Yay!).

Our Favorite Diapers:

Rumparooz One Size Pocket Diapers: There are a few reasons we love them. They are double gusseted so leaks are rare. I also love the insert system. They fit great and have a bunch of cute colors and prints too. We used these from newborn on up.

BumGenius One Size Pocket Diapers: We used these with Miss A too, and I really liked them. They fit very similarly to the Rumparooz, but don't have the double gussets. We still rarely have leaks though.

BabyKicks Premium Pocket Diapers: I only have two of these, but I love them. They're very trim fitting. They also fit from newborn on up.

We also have a selection of BumGenius Freetimes and Thirsties All-in-Ones that we really like too. The all-in-one style is super convenient for laundry and travel, but I do appreciate the ability to change up inserts when needed.

Our Favorite Inserts:

Rumparooz Bamboo 6r Soakers are my absolute favorite. These are the only ones we've found that aren't crazy bulky, that get us through the night without leaks. They come with two inserts, the large, and the "newborn"/doubler. We use both for overnight and it works great. 

Our Favorite Diaper Rash Creams:

Coconut Oil: I love this stuff for every day use. It's cloth diaper safe, and good for everything. Diaper rashes, skin moisturizer, cracked/dry nipples from nursing, stretch mark itching, and a million other things. Spectrum is my favorite brand. 

Earth Mama Angle Baby Bottom Balm: This was the first "cloth safe cream" we actually tried. It works amazing. This past week, Baby J had a terrible teething caused diaper rash, and this stuff has knocked it out so fast. It's also on the lower end of the cost scale too. 

Motherlove Diaper Rash and Thrush Relief: This is another amazing cream too. Super versatile and pretty inexpensive. I love it! 

Our Favorite Accessories:

Grovia Cloth Wipes: I've tried a handful of different cloth wipes, but these are my favorite. They're a good size, but not bulky. And they're pretty cheap compared to others I've tried too. 

Lusa Wipe Juice: I love this stuff. It smells amazing, and leave lil man's butt super soft. I bought the 4oz bottle when Baby J was just a few weeks old, and just placed an order for another bottle this past week. It lasts forever. We actually use it in my peri-bottle, just a little in each bottle. 

Planet Wise Pail Liners: With Miss A, I used a different pail liner, and it was constantly falling in the pail. These stay in place super well, and come in a ton of colors. We got a brown one and an orange one to match our hunting themed nursery. 

Bumkins Diaper Sprayer: The diaper sprayer is a new thing for us. But it is a life saver. One thing we definitely needed with this is the Spray Pal. It saves a LOT of mess. I highly recommend both once baby starts solids. 

If you have any questions, please feel free to comment and I'll let you know what we use!
