How often do you have to replace cloth diapers?
Remember, the less often you have to wash your diapers and covers, the longer they will last. If you choose to diaper with a smaller stash, plan on replacing your diapers every 6-9 months. Don’t expect one-size diapers (or sized diapers!) to last 2 years if you only have 10-15 in rotation! Ready to get started?
Do you really save money using cloth diapers?

If you are using around seven diapers today, that amounts to $1.50 to $2.00 savings per day from using cloth. … 24 diapers can cost anywhere from $100 to $600 depending on the type of diaper you use.
How do you get poop out of cloth nappies?
Some parents use a diaper sprayer (sprayers that attach to your toilet like mini-showerheads) while others swish the diaper around in the toilet’s bowl. Even using a spray bottle full of tap water will work. Just be sure to spray or swish until the poop is removed. Shop for diaper sprayers online.
Do you change the diaper cover every time?
Wipe covers down in between changes, and wash every 5 uses. Soiled covers should be rinsed and pretreated for stains, then hand-washed or put in the diaper pail for laundering. Adding an insert to any diaper will boost its absorbency, and is recommended for nighttime use past the infant stage.
How do you know if a reusable nappy is wet?
Continue feeling the diaper every 10 mins or so, and when you notice that it feels stiffer when you poke it (gently of course), or doesn’t squish so well if you pinch it between your fingers, you can guess that it’s wet and open it up to see.
