Baby Swaddles and Carriers

Cloth Diapers – it really is easier than you think

Chinese prefolds
(cotton diapers, ask your midwife how to fold them) – blueberrydiapers.com, www.greenmountaindiapers.com, www.zoolikins.com (be sure to buy the 3 prong fasteners)

Diaper covers
wool and plastic – www.tinybirdorganics.com, clothdiapers.com, www.zoolikins.com

Waterproof diaper bag 
any of the above companies – I put them in a waterproof bag in a tall kitchen trash can with a lid and the smell was minimal.

Wipes 
any of the above companies – I filled a spray bottle with lavender oil and water and used it with the cloth wipes

Washing Instructions: rinse poopy diapers in the toilet and then they can be placed in diaper bin. Wash every day or every other day. First cycle on hot with NO detergent. Second cycle wash in hot water and use very little detergent along with BioKleen or Seventh Generation natural oxy stain remover. This will get them very clean.
