Get Ready for Baby Day 5: Diapering Supplies

Today's activity is purchasing the diapering supplies.

Whether you are cloth diapering or using disposables, you will need to start your diaper supply shopping before baby gets here.

If you are using disposables, you'll want to have a couple packs on hand. Keep in mind that sometimes babies are allergic to certain brands, so you may want to purchase a couple different brands, just in case. You'll also want to make sure you have wipes on hand, too and possibly a wipe warmer. You may also want to get some diaper rash cream, too.

If you are using cloth, you'll want to start buying your stash now. There are many different kinds of cloth diapers out there-AIO, pocket, covers, flats, fitted, prefolds, etc. It's suggested that you get a couple of each until you are able to decide what kind works best for you and baby. You'll also want to make sure you have cloth diaper safe laundry soap on hand. You'll also need wipes-either disposable or cloth and a cloth diaper safe diaper rash cream. 

What kind of diapers are you using? Have you already started buying them? If you've already had your baby, what brand or kind of diaper are you using?

If you missed yesterday's activity, you can find it here. If you haven't signed up for the Get Ready for Baby Challenge yet, you can do so here.

We are switching to cloth this time. Have not bought anything yet, but have done LOTS of research and pinned some things I want to buy. Going to start with a mix of a bunch of different type of cloth diaper so I can see what we like before I buy a bunch of one kind.

For now we will be using what we got from the baby shower. We got quite a few different brands of wipes and diapers and different sizes. After lo is born we will decide which to use exclusively.
