make me a shopping list

Hi- we're thinking about switching to CD. I've been trying to read what we'll need but there's SO much. Could you ladies make me a shopping list of everything I will need to start out? Not sure if it matters but Jonah weighs 12lbs. Thank ya thank ya!

Re: make me a shopping list

  • Try the EcoFriendlyFamily blog and pinstripesandpolkadots.com. I know at least one of those has multiple options on what you'd want/need based on convenience vs cost.
  • will do, thanks lady!

  • How about I tell you what I have and you go from there?

    I have:

    2 cloth diaper pail liners

    1 flip top trash can (used as a diaper pail)

    2 wet bags (for traveling - though I wish they were wet / dry bags)

    2 dozen cloth wipes (way, way more than enough since I only wipe first thing in the morning and after poops)

    12-18 diapers per day (I think I have enough for 2 - 2 1/2 days)

    Cloth diaper safe laundry detergent (see this chart)

     24 fleece liners (to keep LO dry and to use with diaper cream)

    1 tube of CD safe diaper cream (though I've only ever used it on his bum after he was in a sposie)

    Essential oil for diaper pail

    Baking soda for the bottle of my diaper pail

    Downy ball and vinegar (for washing diapers)

    GL! I hope this helps.

    Oh my gosh, how kind of you! Thanks! I'm going to show DH this tonight. I really want to make the transition. The guilt is weighing on me about all these diapers going to a landfill. Any brands you recommend?
