ToolBox :: Quick Guide to Getting Started With Cloth Diapers

Easy to Use, Right from Day One with Top Rated Newborn and Older Baby Cloth Diapers

If you want to start your baby off in cloth, these are the diapers that will work for you.  Suitable to use right from birth, even with meconium*. (*Meconium may stain natural fibers initially but can be treated with oxyclean and sunlight.  Remember that a stain does not equate dirty or unclean.)

The first list is made up of your diapers and covers that will last until your baby 12-15lbs.  The diapers below are designed specifically for newborns – to fit their little tummies and legs, to accommodate for their healing belly button and to contain the runny messes that they are notorious for making!  The second list are essential accessories to use with any cloth diapering system and will last you through your days of diapering, regardless of the size your child is wearing.
