Cloth Diapering Essentials

Cloth Diapering Essentials

Other than your diapers, only a few things are truly essential for cloth diapering.
I put both home and diaper bag items on the list.

Wet bags are essential for your diaper bag. 
They hold your dirty diapers.
And wet clothes.
And bathing suits, towels or anything else that you don't want touching anything else.

Diaper pail liners are the wet bag for your bedroom.
Both are easy to clean, just add them to your diaper laundry!
My wet bag and pail liners are from a WAHM who sells on etsy.

Wipes are essential.
Some, like me, use disposable wipes.
I use any sensitive wipe brand.
Other cloth diapering parents use cloth wipes that they just wash with their diapers and a homemade cloth wipe solution.

Diaper cream is good to have on hand.
Cloth safe diaper cream is necessary while cloth diapering because most diaper creams are not.
Petrolium, Pariffin, Lanolin, are very heavy and greasy. It is suggested that if a rash cream is necessary and contains these, a liner should be used and washed separately from your diapers. 
Cod Liver Oil or any other fish oil and Calamine should be avoided at all cost.
CJ's Butter Stick is great for in your diaper bag. It lets you do a quick full application without getting your fingers all messy. 
A must when out and about.
California Baby has a cloth safe cream that I like to use at home. It has been amazing at clearing rashes within a day. 
I love it!

Laundry Detergent (without added fabric softeners) is essential for your cloth diapers.

A pacifier is my extra essential for changing a diaper for a wiggly baby.
The WubbaNubba paci has a little beanie animal attached to it that Jaxon loves to grab and play with during changes.
