CLOTH DIAPERING A NEWBORN

Updated: Dec 2, 2019




When diapering a newborn, you’ve got to ask yourself, “Do I have to invest in this particular set of diapers for my baby? Is it worth it? There’s no way to know for sure how long your baby will use a diaper size since an infant diaper will fit a baby up to about 14-16 pounds.



Best Cloth Diapers for newborns

Let’s look at two of the types of cloth diapers you can use with a newborn, and some alternatives to get your set together.


All In One

 Whether you have a toddler or a newborn, All In Ones may be the easiest type of cloth diapers to use. They are super easy to put on and wash. Plus you can choose the ones with the snaps or Velcro. Both have the ability to protect your baby’s umbilical stomp correctly. There are many brands offering All In One diapers in newborn size.


Flats

The other and more generally acceptable cloth diapers for newborns are Flats. Because they are easy to adjust to any baby’s size, mothers love using Flats. You may find them useful when used along with covers to make them waterproof. The best thing about Flats is that you will not need bunches of covers as one can be used a few times before you wash it, and you can still use flats when the baby grows up.
