Great Cloth Diapers for NEW Users!

Great Cloth Diapers for New Users 

With so many types of cloth diapers available, the prospect of building a diaper stash to a new cloth diaper user can seem overwhelming. Whether you are ready to make the switch or even just considering cloth, these are some great options you may want to consider to get you started.

All-in-one diapers, or AIOs, are easy to use and easy to clean. The absorbent layer(s) and waterproof outer layer are encompassed in one unit, meaning no stuffing in an insert before use or pulling an insert out before washing as you would with most pocket diapers, and no multiple steps such as folding a prefold and placing it on baby, followed by a cover. They are available in snap closures or hook and loop closures, which can make cloth diapering more user-friendly to those who are used to the tabs on disposable diapers. Many popular cloth diaper brands, such as BumGenius and Thirsties, offer all-in-one diapers.


If you are looking for a more budget-friendly approach to start cloth diapering, prefolds and covers may be a more desirable approach. Prefolds can be purchased singly or in bulk for a greater discount, and are usually priced between $2-$4 per prefold. There are a variety of folding and securing techniques that do require a learning curve to using prefolds, but they can also be laid inside a cover and used as a simple liner. There are many tutorials online for the various ways to fold a prefold, but a great one for some basic folds can be found here at http://www.clothdiaperoutlet.com/how_to_fold_prefolds.html. Waterproof PUL covers can be wiped out and reused over several diaper changes therefore reducing the number needed to complete your stash and therefore, the cost of getting with cloth.  

If you are new to cloth diapering and looking to build your stash or just researching a switch to cloth, all-in-one diapers are one of the most user-friendly option to consider. If you are on a budget or simply don’t want to invest too much before taking the plunge, prefolds and covers may be the best option. Once you give cloth diapering a try, you may find that it’s a lot easier and more convenient than you thought!

Baby Shower Gift Ideas


If you are looking for some baby shower ideas for the mom who plans to use cloth diapers, Cloth Diaper Outlet has a variety of choices. From diapers to diaper sprayers to wipe solution, they have everything a mom needs to get started.

Whether you are looking for all-in-ones (AIOs), pocket diapers, covers and prefolds, or newborn diapers, Cloth Diaper Outlet has you covered. If mom plans on cloth diapering from birth, the selection of newborn diapers, both pockets and AIOs, is extensive. Prefolds and diaper covers are also a great option for cloth diapering a newborn. CDO offers many brands of covers and prefolds that fit from 7-15 lbs.



AIOs make a great gift for moms who are new to cloth diapering; easy to use with no stuffing an insert in before use, they streamline diaper changes and diaper laudnry. One-size (OS) diapers are a popular choice, which are designed to fit from birth until potty training, feature a snap down rise that makes tailoring the diaper to your baby simple and quick. Bumgenius Freetimes and Blueberry Simplex are the perfect combination of AIO and OS diaper and either (or both!) would be a well-received shower gift.



Diapers are only one part of a successful cloth diapering routine. Wet bags and pail liners are essential to storing dirty diapers and convenient as they can be washed with diaper laundry. Cloth Diaper Outlet offers many brands of wet bags in countless beautiful prints and several different styles. Cloth wipes are a great way to reduce waste and make diaper changes easy, and CDO sells packs of wipes made by many different brands, as well as wipe solution and diaper rash cream that is safe for cloth diapers. Any of these would be a welcomed gift for a mom planning to use cloth.





Beyond cloth diapers and diapering accessories, Cloth Diaper Outlet carries many other useful baby shower gifts - bibs, crib mattresses, wool dryer balls, even gifts for the breastfeeding mom such as cloth nursing pads and nipple cream. If you can’t decide on the perfect shower gift, CDO sells gift certificates to fit any budget from $5 to $200. And to top off their wide selection of products, they offer free shipping after $35 and discounts codes for orders greater than $50, $150, and $250.
