Buy a cloth diaper cover! I have thought of three reasons:
1) They can still use disposable diapers but they can prevent blowouts! I know this was a big selling point for me when I switched to cloth. This can be an easy solution for the new parent with a newborn who has explosive accidents!
2) They are much easier to wash! The thought of laundry was daunting to me- all the different settings and steps- oh, my! Easy solution: If baby has had a blowout, tell them to toss in regular laundry if baby is exclusively breastfed, or just rinse in water if on formula or baby food. Hang dry over a towel rack in baby’s bathroom or on a hanger!
3) They are just plain adorable! Buy a diaper cover of their favorite color or theme of baby’s nursery. For example: If baby nursery is “Bumble Bee theme” you can buy them the new Rumparooz Unity diaper cover. Cloth Diaper Love at first sight!!
Present your baby shower gift in a way that is attractive- I will give you some ideas! Adorable little basket with a bow and little gifts inside- the cloth diaper cover, a few cloth wipes for new parent to try, and a few other goodies from baby registry. Have fun with it!
