While we at Mulberry Street Diaper Company love staying up-to-date with new products and designs, our greatest desire is to help you find what works for you. In general, my (Erin's) motto is "start with less, then increase." It's much simpler that way!
What does one really need to cloth diaper successfully? Not much! (Read on.)
We always recommend:
- 18 diapers (less if your baby is older, more if we're talking newborn)
- Wipes (like these or these)
- A pail and liner
- A wet bag for travel
Of course, you'll need a detergent that works for you (but you're probably buying that anyway).
The most important thing is to make sure you're investing in quality pieces (we stand behind what we carry here)!
Please don't get us wrong; cloth diapering can be made easier and more fun with the accessories we carry (and we will share them with you in the next post). We just want you to know that its simple. It's cost-effective. And (we hope) you'll love it as much as we do!
