Do you want to give cloth diapers a try, but don’t want to commit? If you want to do a trial run, you have several options.
Get a full trial set of diapers, covers, and more at Jillian’s Drawers. At this parent-friendly website, you can order everything you need to give cloth diapering a try all in one trial kit. If you don’t love it, you can send everything back and only be out $10. Jillian’s offers a great option for new parents, gifts for expecting parents, and anyone who wants a large selection but doesn’t know where to shop.
If you want a cloth diaper most similar to disposable diapers, look no further than the all-in-one type. These cloth diapers work just like disposables, but you wash them after every use. That means you never have to run to the store to buy more diapers (though you do have to keep up with laundry). Each all in one diaper includes an insert permanently attached to the waterproof cover, and you can get them with either Velcro (aka hook and loop) or snap closures.
If you want a more affordable test drive, try out diaper inserts and covers separately. While you will do a bit more work assembling diapers, it will save you even more money because these types of diapers cost less. And they offer more flexibility for absorbency, depending on your child’s size and time of day (or night). Looking for a recommendation of the best diaper covers? Check out why we love Thirsties.
