Two in Cloth

Means twice as many cute fluffy bottoms!


When I was pregnant with my first daughter Grace I decided to cloth diaper. When she was first born I used disposables until she was big enough to fit into her diapers. I love cloth diapering so much that when I was pregnant with my second daughter I decided to cloth diaper her right from the beginning!

My daughters are only 20 months apart so I knew that I would have two in diapers. Not too much has changed from cloth diapering one to cloth diapering two. I had to invest in a few more diapers so that I didn't have to do laundry more than every other day. I got a second laundry pail and pail liner so that I could have a pail in each of their bedrooms. I got a few more cloth wipes. Mostly just small changes. And depending on your budget, changes that you don't necessarily have to make.

My washing routine is pretty much the same for two as it was with one. I just grab the second bag of diapers on the way down to the laundry room. Sometimes I wash more frequently because the pails just seem to fill a little faster!

One of the great things about cloth diapering two as opposed to using disposable diapers is that they can share diapers! All of the cloth diapers I use are one-size diapers, meaning they adjust to grow with your child. If Grace is out of diapers, I can just go grab one of Molly's and adjust it larger to fit Grace. How convenient!


As I started the post, the best thing about cloth diapering two is twice as many cute fluffy bottoms! There are some many different styles, brands, colors and patterns to try. I've had so much fun trying out diapers and finding what works best for our family. Cloth diapering can be addictive and now I have two bottoms to feed my habit!
