When I cloth diapered - this is where I shopped

I cloth diapered my youngest for almost 3 years.
I LOVED it.

Aside from the fact that is saved me a TON of cash on disposable diapers - that wasn't the reason I started at all.  It was because my son keep having blow-outs in every single disposable I tried actually. A friend sent me some old diapers & I feel in LOVE.  More on that story → here.

Where I bought the rest of my clothing diapering supplies, might be useful if you're wondering where to start and find some great deals -- so here is what I know....



First I was gifted a bunch of Bum Genius diapers & like them, so I went on the hunt for more of that brand.

I found out they're sold on CottonBabies.com  and also on many other online cloth retailers like Kelly's Closet, Nicki's Diapers... then a million and one others (just do a quick google search and you'll see)

Cottonbabies - sell only Bum Genius brand but also some others.
This is a great place for NEW prints, and news on upcoming prints -- trust me, this will be a thing you'll be obsessed with eventually.

Kelly's Closet (affiliate link) - get site full of al kinds of diapers, earn points with orders toward free products!

Nicki's Diapers  (affiliate link) - my most fav.  Also, carries all diffrerent kinds of diapering supplies & brands as well as their own brand (super affordable & I love that when you buy their brand diapers then will donate one to a charity for every one purchased!!)  Also you can earn points toward free products!!

Also something I utilized a lot was the FACEBOOK  GROUPS dedicated to reselling diapers
Search for "cloth swap" or "cloth diaper b/s/t", there are also specific groups that are brand specific.

Also search "Cloth diaper chat" if you want to ask questions & learn what the heck you should try, OneSize, Fitted, Covers, Flats, All-In-Ones, Pocket Diapers???!!!  So many choices!

Popular terms in the cloth diapering world:

Fluff - the diapers, and when you get them in the mail, it's "Fluff mail!" :D

Stash - your collection of diapers, when you want to resell them.... you destash!

Kelly's Closet has a helpful list of all the AIO, Flat, Fitted etc... terms here.
