Answer 8 Questions and Find Out Which Kind of Cloth Diaper You Are

Did you know the average baby will need 6000 or more diaper changes before potty training? That’s a lot of diapers!

That’s a lot of trash in the landfill and thousands of dollars thrown away. That’s a lot of chemicals, plastics, adhesives, elastics, and lubricants right up against my baby’s delicate skin and reproductive organs, around the clock for the first two to three years of her life. That’s why more and more families are choosing cloth diapers these days.

Things have come a long way since the days of flats and plastic pants, and nowadays we have a wide variety of diapers to fit every price point and lifestyle. From the basic flat diaper to the fanciest all-in-one, there’s a cloth diaper for virtually every baby and every mom. With so many styles of cloth diapers out there, we wanted to know…which cloth diaper style are you?

  • While I have a little of everything in the diaper stash, the survey result is pretty right on. I love a great fitted diaper. It contains all the mess and stands up to the heavywetter’s output. Besides a fluffy behind doesn’t bother me at all!

  • Hey this is basically what I felt like we should be doing. We are doing prefolds and covers for as long as my husband is on board! I told him we can look into other options later if needed.

  • My result: prefold diapers. What I used back in the 80’s…prefold diapers! Now we use a mix of everything (even flats) with the grands.
