I am concerned about the amount of laundry..

Albatina said...

looks like a great bundle

Amanda Temple said...

I can say in 18 months we haven't had any major issues. Biggest concern I have is them actually making to future babies!

Lindsay said...

My biggest concern with cloth diapering is leaks and finding the right system that works. I think we are finally there! I am also in the process of finding the best washing routine for us.

Leah CW said...

Biggest concern? Hmmm there aren't many. I do worry about nighttime leaks when baby gets older, but it hasn't been an issue so far.

Jessica said...

My biggest concern is the smell that builds up.

I don't want to wash them the wrong way and mess them up.

Brianna Sherman said...

The poop! I dread the wash up process. And I'm worried I won't be able to keep up and I'll go back to disposables. :(

Crystyn Haun said...

my biggest concern is solid food poop :p

Lara Clinton said...

Mine is having the right fit. I would love to be prepared ahead of time before baby arrives but I'm nervous of getting diapers ahead of time that are too big or too small.

Melissa said...

washing them in our coin-op

Tara Coy said...

My my biggest concern with cloth diapering is that I will not wash them properly and end up ruining them one way or another!

Laura said...

I don't feel like I have any major concerns with cloth diapering...I really love it! Baby has had no rashes and she is 4 months old now. I use mainly flats at home and pockets for when she is at the grandparents and at night.

smell

Alex Liz R. said...

My biggest concern was making sure they got clean and the whole washing routine.

Michael n said...

Biggest concern was wherr does the poo go? Lol

Sweetpetunia said...

Laundering them. Not that washing them is hard, it's just that I'm having a difficult time since moving 7 miles from my previous residence into a different city and now my diapers stink. Ammonia stink. I try new things, they work for a wash or two and then they stop. It's getting really frustrating. I just hope baby girl takes well to potty training because at 21 months, that's my next strategy for her.

Beth Patterson said...

Cleaning them properly and stripping them when needed.

Nena Olivas said...

I'd love to get these items! Just started my son on cloth diapers and I love them!

Kathleen Bean said...

My baby (#1) is due in August and my biggest concern with cloth diapers is laundry. The amount of washing doesn't worry me, it's the fact that my husband (who does the laundry) is very picky about his clothes and can't imagine kicking the dryer sheet habit.

Hannah said...

right now my biggest concern with my cloth diapers is making sure that they fit well enough to avoid leaks on my younger daughter.

Charla Tinsley said...

Getting my husband to do it.

Charla Tinsley said...

Getting my husband to do it.

MartyMomma said...

Never getting them fully cleaned :( I have read so many different articles on how to wash my diapers, took their advice and have yet to find a system that works for me!

matope said...

our biggest problem is ammonia. super hard to find a good wash routine with our hard sulphur well water!

Amanda Felton said...

My biggest concern about cloth diapers is that I have several different brands at this time - I wanted to try a bunch to see what fit and works best with my baby. We shall see in the next month or more what works best.

MarceloM said...

We love ecosprout and use it on all of our cloth diapers. :)

Lynette Anne said...

We don't really have any concerns as we've been using cloth a few years. We DO have a dwindling bag of Eco Sprout on the shelf though. ;0) Love it!

J. Olson said...

I am always afraid they are going to delaminate but after using the same (china cheapies!!) for over 2 years, I have yet to have 1 get ruined!

Jennifer Walker said...

Biggest concern... That I don't have enough lol

Danielle said...

My biggest concern with cloth diapers is not buying too many! I seriously want all the prints and all the colors. Keeping myself from spending too much has been problematic.

Tricia Ciampa said...

My biggest concern with cloth diapers is that they don't leak, especially at night. I have a heavy wetter, and several of the brands I tried leaked like crazy.

caseyrusso said...

stinky build up

Tricia Ciampa said...

My concern is leakage, especially overnight. I have a heavy wetter, and some brands I've tried leaked everywhere - yuck!

Jessica Austin said...

My concern with cloth diapers is when I get to solid foods. I am hoping it is still as convenient for me as it is with my EBF baby! :-)

Dean-o-mite said...

I'd love to try these out!

Dean-o-mite said...

I'd love to try these out!

catie said...

My biggest concern right now is just being able to keep up with laundry. We're due in August so I've been trying to get a better routine for just OUR clothes, so hopefully that helps! :)

Roz Purnell said...

I do worry about my husbands ability to use the cloth diapers, and adhere to the washing routine...other than that im excited..they have changed so much since my last child 15 years ago!

Michelle Tamasa said...

My biggest concern is traveling with cloth diapers. Going through the airport security and holding onto poppies.... I hope my Smart Snugs' wet bag holds it all in!

My biggest concern is absorbency. We have leaks almost every night. Got some bamboo prefolds that seem to do the trick!

Crystal Martinez said...

Making sure they are clean enough'

Alison Palmer said...

I am never sure how long to let the diapers sit before washing them

Rebecca Azer said...

I have been using cloth diapers for a year and a half and I don't really have any concerns about them, except I guess I am concerned about my inability to stop buying them! But my least favorite thing about them is how bulky they are.

Colleen Maurina said...

My concern about cloth diapers is getting them clean and fresh smelling and keeping them absorbent.

Sheridan Nicole said...

My biggest concern with cloth diapers is dealing with ammonia. It's hard to get rid of and it's so irritating on the skin

Kristen Varner said...

Washing was a concern of mine

Heather said...

I would love to win this

Christina said...

Combatting ammonia buildup and rash

Kate Record said...

Keeping up with them! Really, it takes a lot for a working mama!

Sandra Ambroise said...

My biggest concern is to keep them clean, since I have a HE front loader. Also slightly nervous about when we're out and about.

Erin B. said...

My biggest concern currently is AMMONIA!! EEK! Our diapers stink a lot, tried a couple things found on blogs with some success but not completely gone yet. Think I will try RLR next!

Crystal robinson said...

That they don't leak or stink

Amanda said...

My biggest concern is getting the diapers clean enough!

Lisa H said...

I just don't like how time consuming it is but it's worth it.

judi said...

getting them clean cheaply.

Stephanie Marcus said...

When I did it with my first born. We would have a problem with yeast. So I hope when I have this little one that we don't have the same problem.

Danielle Nicholas said...

I question myself sometimes thinking if they are really clean or not. I know they are but my thoughts get the best of me!

Talia said...

My biggest concern with cloth diapers is what to do if my LO gets a yeast infection. It didn't happen with my first son, but I'm nervous about disinfecting the diapers if it happens with my second.

Becky Marie said...

Finding a way to afford more natural fibers!

barnold barnes said...

My biggest concern is that my son's skin gets red and irritated basically every time I use them.

genie childers said...

Right now my biggest concern is not running out before laundry is done !

N Bear said...

It used to be ammonia, but I have gotten that under control. At least at home anyway. I guess it would be traveling with cloth and having to wash in different machines, water types, etc.

Vicki Hall said...


My biggest concern is keeping them clean and odor free.

Danielle Stephens said...

Making sure they are clean

Christine said...

Making sure I get them clean enough so my little one doesn't have issues

jennifer NL said...

right now my biggest concern is fit, and newborn stash. how big will my baby be? will she be in newborn diapers for very long, or outgrow them quickly?

freshsamanthaaa said...

My biggest concern with cloth diapers is finding something that hubby can deal with too! He's not as open to more complicated methods.

Stephanie Wheatley said...

Fluff Friday!!!!

Gabby Dunai said...

I am always concerned about preventing diaper rashes for my son.

Kayla said...

My biggest concern is stink!

Bobbie Aikens said...

My biggest concerns with cloth diapering are the starting cost and the odor. I have been using cloth diapers for two months and have only been able to afford two diapers and three covers so far. So I am cleaning diapers all the time.

Katherine said...

biggest concern is having enough absorbency

Anonymous said...

Finding an option that works well and we like.

Laura said...

I dislike how onesies wick the dampness out of the diaper around the legs. My daughter recently became fascinated with her belly button and has to wear a onesie all the time!

Anonymous said...

Im only three weeks in, and I don't have any concerns yet....maybe because I enjoy diaper changes with cloth.

Shalaina Simmons said...

My biggest cloth diapering concern is what to do with my stash once we're done with diapers. I know I can donate them, but it will be a really bittersweet time for me.

Misa said...

Traveling - will I have enough? Will I be able to wash and dry? Etc...

Marilyn said...

Biggest concern- leaking legs! :)

Sew What said...

I worry I wont be able to get the stains out. I live in an apartment and no clotheslines allowed out on the patio besides that the other buildings block my direct sunlight. I've tried sunning in the windows I've had diapers there for over a week and nothing has changed.

Stephanie Slavy said...

My biggest concern is how hot she gets in cloth diapers. The coconut oil stick helps though.

Danni said...

My biggest concerns are fit and absorbency.

Jen said...

My biggest concern with cloth diapers is cleaning them properly. I really want to be sure that they're clean before I put them back on my baby's bottom.

Shan said...

I'm new to cloth, in fact we haven't even started, our girl is due in Aug. And I'm afraid I wont be able to get the stink out.

Brittany Drapeau said...

My biggest concern with cloth diapering is that I will some how ruin my CDs because I don't care for them properly.

Anonymous said...

My biggest concern is the time it takes to wash cloth diapers

Samantha Linke said...

Biggest concern is my addiction! hahaha but really, before I started cloth- just making sure I did everything as well as I could and not screwing up my diapers.

Samantha Linke said...

Courtney Moore said...

My biggest concern was how sanitary it would be but after looking into , I was satisfied it would be.

Rach said...

I just placed my first order on Kelly's closet and I'm excited to see how well it works and buy more to earn point.

Starre said...

I guess I don't really have any concerns... but the grandparents are afraid of cloth wipes.

Britney Spencer said...

Stains are my biggest worry right now.

Carly Tea said...

My biggest concern right now is diaper rash. My little one seems sensitive to wetness, so I've been needing to use liners with natural fibers. I need to be on top of the rashes so it doesn't get so bad that I need non-cloth-safe rash cream.

Claire Rheinheimer said...

My daughter just had her first solid poop today. I'm not sure how I'm going to deal with that on a regular basis- spraying or scraping.

Michelle Turner said...

My concern is leaks! I can't seem to get rid of them

Charlotte said...

One of my biggest concerns is the amount of time spent cleaning them, or not being able to clean them well enough.

Raina said...

My biggest concern is leaks and laundry detergent! Everyone talks so much about the right and wrong one so much it makes it sound like they're so freaking delicate which makes it less appealing to cloth diaper. So far the ones I've used have been fine.

tracy dennison said...

That they will start to smell, aand I won't get the smell out!

Ashley-Raye said...

Getting diapers clean enough and dealing with toddler pee have been our biggest hurdles.

PunkRockChic said...

Stink issues! Or yeast issues!

Maria Ivey said...

I worry that elastics wear out a bit too quickly and I can't replace them myself.

learningtheropes said...

I'm always concerned about staining! :P

Becky Straub said...

we had a yeast infection take over our diapers once. That's been my biggest diaper challenge!! but we finally did get rid of it!

Kate W said...

My biggest concern is my family/friends/other caregivers not being open to using them

Kate W said...

my biggest concern would be that family/friends/other caregivers are not open to using them

Aimee Murad said...

having to wash them all the time!

Sarah Griffin said...

My biggest concern using cloth is keeping the stains out. I have a few that stain easily. I use liners, but the poo still gets the edges around the legs. Time for some more sun!!

HisbelovedBEA said...

My biggest concern with cloth diapers is still at night! I am trying to get comfortable and learn to trust them overnight. I am still going through the process of learning what I like to stuff them with at night in order to get maximum absorbency.

Lezlie said...

Excited!!

Erin K said...

My biggest concern is absorbency. I got to the point where I was afraid to leave the house with my son in cloth. Stuffing to the point where he had to waddle wasn't fun for either of us, and we always have compression leaks in the car seat.

Brandi S said...

I worry that I won't end up liking cloth and I won't get my money's worth out of them after paying a lot up front!

Amanda said...

My biggest worry about cloth diapers is that I will have trouble getting them really clean.

samantha smalley said...

My biggest concern is leaks!

Laura K said...

Poop after solids... so gross!

i've never used one, so, that's a main concern in itself; whether we ca pull it off. :-P

Chelsea Paddict said...

I love diapering but i hate microfiber it gets so stinky

Emily Bemily said...

My biggest concern- family changing the diapers! My husband refuses to use them and my mother is the only one who really understands my love of cloth (she used cloth on my brother)

Samantha Melton said...

that I don't have enough!

Alexandra Pitcher said...

Detergent and mineral build up. I'm always afraid ill end up out somewhere and all my diapers are leaking.

caitlin klassen said...

My biggest concern would be finding the right system and night time diapering

Kymberley Dragoo said...

Not getting them clean enough

danel5208 said...

My biggest concern with Cloth diapers is spending to much, lol... I've become obsessed and I just started, I just had my fourth baby and only boy, knowing this is my last baby I am trying to thoroughly enjoy everything and try everything that I never did with my others! The initial investment is expensive and I'm worried it won't work well for us!

Rosa Gallimore said...

I am new to cloth diapering, but I am looking for any advice, and this site seems to be full of great products and information.

Caitlin said...

I am still pregnant and my biggest concern is that I have never changed a baby's diaper in my life.
