The Ultimate Cloth Diaper Resource List
From First Fluff to Final Sale

Disclaimer: This post contains affiliate links.

Ever since starting cloth diapering, even when I was just thinking about it, I have used the internet to get all of my information and answers. Not one person I know uses cloth or has in 30 years. So any advice or information I need is found online. The problem is it's all scattered about the interwebs! Rather than write my own posts about all these things I've compiled a list of the best resources I've found for everything cloth diaper related. This is how I learned everything I know! Stay tuned for updates as I find new information!

CDing with Twins 

Diapers for Twins - About.com
I debated adding this section because I hate that I have to but, well, if you're like most of the CD population you will have to justify or explain your decision to someone. Husbands, doctors, parents and grandparents, even friends and prefect strangers - you never know who will think you're crazy or weird or gross so here's some stats and info to throw their way:



"Your child will have rashes (or yeast, bowlegs, won't learn to walk right or will be hard to potty train)."

Rashes Happen! - The Cloth Diaper Whisperer
Diapers and Development - Alpha Mom
Do Cloth Diapers Delay Walking In Infants? - Dirty Diaper Laundry
Cloth Diapers Are a Plus in Potty Training - Kelly Wels


"You will never stick to it."

The only advice I have for this one is to ignore the haters, do your best and sit back and say, "Oh no? Well, just watch me!"


...
So there you have it! I hope you enjoy your CD journey and let me know how it goes!
