Storing Dirty Diapers

Open Pail | bittybuns.com

Some disposable diaper pails can be also be used with cloth, but some can’t.  I use a Dekkor with a wet bag pail liner (Dekkor now makes a Plus model that is bigger and they market it for cloth).  Ubbi even accommodates cloth with its own liner (but any could be used).  Using a Diaper Genie with cloth takes some finagling, but here I’ve located a video tutorial and a picture thread to help with the transition.  I also travel with a large Planet Wise wet/dry bag.

Some say, though, that the best method for storing cloth diapers is in an open hamper with lots of air holes.  The air circulation supposedly keeps down the stink.  If you use an open pail, choose one with no holes in the bottom and and no holes a couple of inches up.  If you choose not to wring out your poopy diapers after they’ve been sprayed off, you don’t want that water puddling on your floor.

Blueberry Capri Cover

These are nice covers and were my #1 in their newborn size options.  They’re pretty roomy and wide through the bum.  The Capri cover has flaps in the front and back to hold in an insert and help keep baby’s tummy and back dry.  The Coverall version does not have flaps, but is a generally wider diaper cover.  Blueberry also makes really wonderful AIO dipes called Simplex.  You  might get sucked in by their adorable prints.

Rumparooz OS Cover

This is a picture of the newborn size because for some reason I didn’t photograph the blue One Size (OS) I sent you.

Rumparooz is another good quality diaper from Kangacare.  Sometimes these can be found on Zulily.  Again, double gussets and soft two layers of PUL.  Kangacare also makes AIOs, pockets, and you can get them with Aplix (Velcro) closure instead of snaps.

FuzziBunz

FuzziBunz is a pocket diaper with a microfiber insert.

I see these pocket diapers for sale on Amazon, but I don’t know where else to get them.  They’re part of a really big company called CottonBabies who make BumGenius, Flip Diapers, EconoBum and some others.

I don’t know much about FuzziBunz – I don’t hear a lot of chatter about them.  A positive is that it’s really easy to switch out the leg elastic if/when they wear out.  You can also adjust the length of the leg elastic with a little button, which is nice if your baby has super chunky legs or Dobby legs.
