Cloth Diapering Made Easy, Even for a Rookie with TidyTots

As parents prepare for a new baby, they come across many decisions that they must make before baby even gets here. Like whether to breastfeed, bottle feed, or do both, then the decision on whether to go with disposable or cloth diapers. For me, I have always been curious about using cloth diapers, and I have tried in the past, but until now, I thought it was just not for me. With a new baby joining our family in the very near future, the aspect of using cloth diapers has once again come to the table, and as the new babies due date gets closer, we decided that with this new baby, the cloth diapering route will be a great option. This decision was one that was considered very carefully, and after being introduced to the diapering system from Tidy Tots, I am now a fan of cloth diapering!

The first thing that I noticed when we received the Great Starter Set to review, was the fact that this set has what we will need to get started on the cloth diapering journey we will be taking with the new baby. I like that the diapers are made from organic hemp, which is a big plus since I have had 2 babies who have had skin irritations that were caused by the chemicals that were in some brands of the disposable diapers. The hemp diapers and boosters, come pre-washed, so they are ready to use, and this set comes in a free wet bag, which is really going to come in handy on this cloth diapering journey! Another plus are the designs, so when the baby gets here, we can cover its little bottom with very adorable fluff!

Once we had gone through the pack of cloth diapering supplies that we were sent, I found that the instructions that come in the pack, are very easy to follow, and take that anxiety of whether we are doing it right or not, out of the equation, making the cloth diapering experience easy and more enjoyable for everyone! I also found that the no fold diapers were easy to set up, and putting the boosters in was very simple. I like that the hemp boosters are not only easy to put in the no fold diapers, but they give us a triple layer of absorbency, which will come in handy for when we are out and about with baby, and at night, to help absorb any extra wetness and keep babies bottom dry!
Once we got the diapers and boosters put together, placing them inside of the covers was also very easy, it was literally a snap to set up! I like that the snaps are easy to secure together, so even when we have those late night changes, putting together the diapers for a diaper change, will be easy, even when parents are going on little to no sleep!
After I had the diaper put together and ready to be used, I was very impressed. Impressed on how easy it was, that there were no issues, and impressed that after I put the diaper together, being able to use the one size diapers, was easy to adjust when it comes to sizing as well! Also, another thing that I really like about these one size diapering system is that these cloth diapers can be used on baby up to 40 lbs, and the fit is one that speaks for itself, allowing baby to be comfortable in those first few months, not leaving any skin irritations as they coo and wiggle those little toes, to being mobile once the rolling, crawling, and walking takes place!
Then, aside from the assortment of fluff we can choose from at Tidy Tots, the easy of using their diapering system, and the boosters that help keep those little bottoms dry, keeps them free of leaks, even through the night and during playtime, I like that the Cloth Diaper Starter Set that we were sent also came with a roll of 100 Flushies, which are great for on the go cloth diapering, and are easy to carry around in the diaper bag! In all, making the Cloth Diaper Starter Set from Tidy Tots, a must have for any parent who is wanting to or even considering taking the cloth diapering journey with baby!

I want to try these SO badly. I love their diaper patterns. Plus their website gives a great guide for how many diapers they estimate you'll need, inserts, covers, etc, depending on how often you want to do laundry. Genius!
