A new look on Cloth Diapers

So, I thought I would take a small step to the side and mention that I am trying cloth diapers for the first time! I know my blog is about breastfeeding...but if you think about it, cloth diapers and breastfeeding do have two things in common....they are both FANTASTIC for the environment and they have both been around for ages!


Cloth diapers? Aren't those just fabric and safety pins?!  OH MY GOSH NO WAY! I was so wrong!
Cloth diapers have, in a sense, been reinvented! Take the Flip Diaper with stay dry insertfor example. They are very much different than I thought they would be!

They are One Size (OS) cloth diapers that grow with your child, from 8 lbs up to 35 lbs. (Which is great!)


They have 3 different kinds of cloth inserts, Stay Dry, Organic, and Disposable. I choose the Stay Dry for my test run. Each insert has three prefolds for the size Small, Medium and Large. So it makes it super easy to fit the insert in to the diaper. There are also flaps in the front and back to hold the insert in.

The inserts are so very soft, that you can not help but touch it (....but please enjoy this softness while they are clean!)

The outer diaper "shell" is the only one of its kind! It can be easily wiped clean and reused, without having to wash the whole diaper every time!



I was hesitant about the legs holes, I thought for sure we would have a leaky problem, but so far, on day one, no leaks!

As you can see, I purchased the Zinnia color. I plan on giving it one full week, and if I am as happy with them then, I will buy more! Now my 7 month old super baby model, Katelyn, is not crawling yet. So I am not sure if these diapers will bunch while crawling. But previous reviews on the Flip diapers say a little bunching might be expected.

So there you have it, this Cloth Diaper Virgin has stepped out of her shell!
