Cloth Diapering

What am I missing?

Hi ladies! I am finally prepared to purchase everything today, but I want to make sure I haven't forgotten anything before I do it. So far my cart looks like this:

36 prefolds

4 Thirsties size 1 covers (I will get 1 or 2 extra later on if need be)

30 reusable wipes

2 snappis

1 PlanetWise hanging wet bag (in lieu of a pail and liner; planning on getting 2 small wet bags for on-the-go later on)

Is there anything critical that I am missing to start out? We already have a pack of Rockin Green detergent. And is it a bad idea to use a hanging wet bag instead of a pail? Thanks!

Re: What am I missing?

  • I would get two wet bags....for when one is in the wash, the other is near your diaper station. 

    Also, instead of spending the extra money on wipes (unless it's not a big deal for you) we have been using cheap, baby wash cloths for wipes. Much cheaper and pretty soft

  • I agree about a second hanging bag.  I got my wipes on etsy for a great price (seller tenderbottoms, $12 for 30 single ply flannel).  Otherwise, looks great!

  • Thank you to both of you! I didn't even think of what I would do when the one bag was in the wash haha. Do either of you have a recommendation for a large wet bag that is somewhat inexpensive? This one is $29 and I'd rather not spend $60 altogether, but I will if I have to.

    No, not necessarily. It just seemed to hold the most diapers. I just want something that will hold enough to let me wash about every other day.

  • Well, we wash EOD and have a planetwise pail liner in a small step pail (about 15 diapers) or so.  We found the planetwise liner on amazon...select colors are about $15.  I've also seen a few different brands on amazon that about 12, 14 dollars.  

    We haven't noticed a smell with our diapers, even with the pail lid off...so I think even a pillow case would work for the pail.  Not as much fun as buying a wet bag though :)

    Oh, that sounds like a great idea. Thanks again!
