My brother and SIL are expecting and I wanted to get my brother a little something baby related for his Birthday. I know they plan to cloth diaper although they haven’t yet figured out what types/brands they’ll be using (things are pretty early for them).
If I were to get him THIS cloth diaper, could you see it being fairly adaptable to whatever system they eventually plan to go with? Does overall quality look okay? I was thinking of going with the white Canadiens print… is white an awful idea for a diaper?
The seller seems to have some great feedback, but I know nothing about cloth diapering and don’t want to get them one they wouldn’t be able to use.

@LAGS: It’s honestly super hard to tell by a pic, but if the feedback is good, that’s encouraging! It looks a lot like the BumGenius/Thirsties brands I have purchased for our new arrival. Are you planning to just get the one? Most parents usually try a few different brands anyway, the more the merrier.

Ya I just wanted to get a little something baby related as an add on and saw this and thought it was pretty cute. Would you recommend doing more than one?

I’d say get them the one and ask the seller to include a business card. If the diaper leaks or anything, they wouldn’t want more than one. But if they like it, they know how to order more in the cute team logos! If you want to make a gift out of it you could make a little bundle with the cloth diaper, some liners like these and maybe a Burt’s Bees baby lotion or something along those lines. I personally would love to get some cloth diapers as a gift, you can never have too many!

What she said—> @KatyElle:
Wish someone had bought me cloth when I had my shower. We had to buy all ours.LOL

I used to cloth diaper my baby, the old fashioned way, safety pins…. So glad they now make some with velcro, so much easier and convenient. And good for the environment!

@KatyElle: & @MsMamaBear: That’s the reception I was hoping for. I’d like to try cloth at some point but am too chicken with LO #1. They’re taking the plunge though so I thought any help in building their stash would be a good thing – even if it doesn’t become their favorite one.
Thanks for your suggestions!

Im not pregnant NOR do I have any babies but I had to chime in because about 2 months ago I found out about the cloth diapers. Completely crazy that I had nooooo idea this even existed. It’s like a whole movement I never even know about. It’s totally overwhelming so I am hoping by the time I have a baby I can get with the program…seems like the best choice for diapers 🙂
