Top 3 Cloth Diaper Accessories! What are yours?

My 3 Favorite Cloth Diaper Accessories


Before I started cloth diapering, I must admit that I was a little scared about what I was getting myself into. People often asked me questions such as “why are you doing that,” “that is so much work,” or even “that is so gross.” But despite my hesitations, I stuck with it and was amazed at how easy modern cloth diapering really was. It was shortly after that when I discovered cloth diaper accessories. If I wasn’t in love with cloth diapers before, I sure was now! So without further adieu, my top 3 cloth diapering accessories:
  1. Diaper Sprayer - The only thing that would make a diaper sprayer even better would be if it were to hold the diapers and spray them by itself, but I will settle for just the sprayer. I use my diaper sprayer every single day. This sprayer makes poopy diaper clean up so easy. I use my sprayer with both breastfeeding and solid poops. Just a quick spray into the toilet and you’re done. Did I mention that the sprayer can be used to clean out your toilet or tub too (if it can reach)! This was the best $40 I ever spent!
  1. Wet Bag – Wet bags are so versatile and handy. I use a large wet bag to store my dirty diapers until laundry day, and a smaller one for on-the-go diaper storage. They come in all different shapes and sizes to suit your particular need. This is by far the best way to store dirty diapers and keep the stink at bay.
  1. Cloth Diaper Safe Rash Ointment – While many babies in cloth diapers do not get nearly as many diaper rashes as with disposables, sometimes they do happen. It is important to use a “cloth diaper safe” rash ointment to protect the integrity and effectiveness of your diapers! Most of these ointments are made with all natural ingredients that will soothe your babies bum.
I could probably add 10 more items to this list, but these are my top 3! What are your favorite cloth diapering accessories?

Bio: Julie is a semi-stay-at-home mom to her handsome son J.T. who is 7 months old and wife to hubby Jered who is a teacher and pastor. J.T. provided her motivation to start Cloth Diapering! Not wanting to expose his little bum to all those chemicals in disposables and not returning to work full time, she was looking for a safe and inexpensive alternative. Cloth Diapering were her answer! Julie considers herself an advocate for cloth diapers and with her blog, My ClothDiaper Stash, she hopes to share her passion and help others reap the benefits too.  She is a contributor for She Thinks Media.
