Hey everyone, I'm looking to branch into the world of cloth diapers. Any suggestions for a good first one?
I'm looking at rears omotsu, is that a good one?
Hi Owls. What will best fit your needs depends on your lifestyle and whether your regular voids are light or heavy. I don't have experience with Rearz Omutsu, but I have had good luck with LeakMaster prefold diapers (available at AdultClothDiaper) and Ecoable.
Remember that, pound for pound, disposable diapers will hold more liquid and last longer than cloth diapers because of the absorbent material that's put into them. So you will need to change a cloth diaper sooner/more often.
Additionally, remember that dirty cloth diapers need to be washed 2-3 days after use and dried on low or medium heat (never high).
If you can commit to the upkeep, cloth diapers are super comfy, and also more environmentally-friendly than just using more disposables.
I use cloth at home and disposables when I'm away from home simply because the cloth diaper bulk really presents a challenge as far as finding compatible clothing to not only fit over it, but also to try to conceal it (you really can't).
Let me know if you have any other questions, and I'll try to answer as best I can.
