(Stash) Size Doesn’t Matter

stash size doesn't matter

A question that pops up so, so frequently is regarding how many diapers you need to cloth diaper. There are guidelines for this (and I’ll share them a bit later), but I’ve come to find out that this is a flexible number.

Stash size can be a very personal thing.

There are those out there who want to #buyallthecloth. It’s almost like a collecting hobby as much as it is a diapering solution. In addition to the excitement of helping the environment and (in theory) saving money, these cloth diaper users also fall in love with the quality and, oftentimes, cuteness of the diapers.

And most of us have bought a certain diaper for exactly that reason. A cute design is everything.

We recently shared a post about the fact that
there’s no one “right” way to cloth diaper, along with one discussing the importance of supporting the diverse reasons behind cloth diapering for #ClothCommunity Day. Whether you’re a part-timer (we still are) or a full-timer, use only one brand or have an array of options, there really is no wrong way to do it.


In my low-stress cloth diapering post, some were surprised to hear that we’ve been partial to all-in-one style diapers ever since my daughter was still a newborn. They thought that a Duo Wrap with a prefold or flat combination was the way to cloth diaper a newborn. It made me realize that literally EVERYONE has different cloth diapering experiences and Read More
