Getting Started with cloth diapering
What is the right time to begin with the cloth diapering? The answer is – whenever you decide to do so. Once you choose, you discover a formidable task ahead of you - 'to choose the right nappies and other relevant accessories.' We come up with the guidelines on how to stow cloth nappies so that you can start using them on your tot.
Step 1: – Deciding on the number of nappies that will be needed
The number of nappies will depend upon the use and the frequency of washing them. You will have to wash them at the same rate as the baby’s frequency of dirtying them. On average, if you use three disposable diapers in a day, you will probably require 6-10 cloth nappies for the next 3-4 years as long as you wash them every day.
We advise you to store approximately 18-24 diapers if you are willing to use cloth diapers regularly.
For an average wetting baby, each free size Snugkins diaper can continually be used for around 3-4 hours during the day while it gives a dry feel for approximately 10-12 hours during the night. The Snugkins diaper possesses a super absorbent and very soft upper dry sheet that your baby will feel very comfortable and dry for hours. The best thing is you need not change the diaper every time after the baby wets the diaper.
For hygienic reasons, the baby's diaper must be changed after every 3-4 hours during the daytime, while during the night, as babies pee less, diapers can be continually used for the whole night. But after every poop, one must change the diaper immediately.
Note: Our nappies come in the combo of one outer shell and two inserts. It is suggested to wash the cloth diapers every second day. We have provided a couple of additional nappies, so you will never run into an emergency.
