When my cousin Brittany and her partner Michael announced they were only going to use cloth diapers once their son was born, I was excited, proud, and mostly intrigued. Though I've had friends with kids who have gone the non-traditional route for with their diapering choices, I was still a bit clueless as to how it all worked. If you're a bit curious, too, or are thinking about going green, then you're probably wondering what kind of cloth diaper hacks are out there to help make parenthood run more smoothly.
If you're not familiar with the difference between disposable and cloth diapers, there are just a few essentials to know. The most obvious difference is that disposable diapers are typically made of synthetic material and are good for only one use. On the other hand, how cloth diapers work is that you can reuse them multiple times (after washing or replacing an insert) so you can go easy on your wallet and the environment.
There are a plethora of options when it comes to selecting which cloth diaper method will work best for you, but regardless of which style you choose, there are plenty of great cloth diaper hacks to save you time and effort.
