Start using cloth diapers

This is what I wish I knew about cloth diapers

When I was new to cloth diapers, there were a lot of questions to sort out. Which cloth diapers should you choose? What is the best cloth diaper? Why are there so many different types? How many diapers do you need?

How to wash cloth diapers?

I tried my hand at different diaper systems and materials and found a hobby in all of this. I was even amazed at how many parents of toddlers like me fell for cloth diapers. I was also surprised at how many people think these are the same diapers grandma used. In my opinion, modern cloth diapers are the diapers of the future.

But for those of you who are new to cloth diapers or looking for alternatives to disposable diapers, here are tips that I wish someone had given me when I had questions about eco-friendly diapers.

• The most important thing to mention is that it should be simple, start with small changes. There is nothing strange in alternating disposable diapers with cloth diapers. There are those who start with cloth diapers already at BB and find it obvious. But my experience was that I had enough in the new mother role and I chose to introduce cloth diapers slowly. It seemed natural to me that cloth diapers entered the family's routines at the same time that labor pains and frozen food were phased out.

• Try different diapers, our little babies come in all kinds of models and different diapers/diaper brands fit differently on different occasions. I borrowed diapers from my sister who used them on her child, wrote notes for different inserts for the diapers and was terrified of misplacing them. Now in retrospect I understand that it didn't matter that much, as long as you use good quality posts it doesn't have to be that complicated.

• Don't be afraid to adjust the button settings on one-size diapers. Sometimes the baby grows a lot in length and sometimes in width. You can be surprised when the children grow and it's time to change the setting, especially when you have to adjust the buttons to a smaller setting.

• Do not make the washing routine more advanced than it needs to be. You probably already use a gentle detergent for the baby's other laundry, use it when you wash the cloth diapers with.

In the end, I just want to say that my journey to find a sustainable alternative to disposable diapers has been really fun. As a seasoned cloth diaper user, I would look forward to early use of cloth diapers in an event. siblings, because I have routine and like the feel of every disposable diaper I save the world.

What experience do you have with diapers? Or do you have any tips for others who want to reduce the use of disposable diapers?

Ja, vi möter många föräldrar som är positiva till sin upplevelse med tygblöjor, där man först trodde att det skulle vara mer “jobb” med att hantera det. Tack för att ni dela med er! Det är så kul att höra och läsa om hur andras upplevelser blir!


Jag trodde att det skulle vara omständligt att ta hand om bajset. Men efter några gånger insåg jag att det var ju inte alls så omständligt. Nu tycker jag istället att det känns konstigt att slänga det i soporna när vi inte har haft tygblöja. Känns helt rätt och självklart att det ska ner i toaletten!


Jag trodde jag skulle tycka tvättandet var mycket jobb. Men vi hade redan bytt ut tvättlappar till sånna i tyg och då blev det nästan lättare att hantera allt på samma gång. Eftersom jag ändå skulle tvätta dom.
