Re: How is your diaper station set up? Long post with lots of pictures

Thank you! This post is so very helpful! I am going to start CDing next month and I have everything ready to go... but NO CLUE if the setup is practical! This made my day.

Smile Re: How is your diaper station set up? Long post with lots of pictures

That is a really beautiful set up! You have inspired me. I am new to this site and new to cloth diapering. In fact, I haven't even bought the diapers yet, but I'm committing to trying it. I'm going to try Bumgenius since I have read so many good reviews. Since you're such a pro, can you offer me any advice? Also, what about the smell? Does the pail get stinky? Can you just wash the inserts and reuse the outside, or do you have to wash both? Do you like the inserts that come with the Bumgenius, or do you have another brand that fits and that you like better? Have you ever used hemp inserts? I've heard good things about those. Thanks for indulging a rookie cloth diaperer.

Good gravy mama! I am THOROUGHLY impressed! Man, if you went into business setting up people's changing stations like that you'd make a killing!

Mine is just a few 2 drawer dressers on top of each other with labels on the drawers. Pail is in the room and I just change him on the bed.

No time for that...too busy changing diapers!

Float around this forum and read up on as many diapers as possible before you buy. Then buy several kinds and see what kind of baby you get. Some babies fit beautifully in bumGenius...some don't. And babies grow every day...what fits well one day is too short the next.

That rack of diapers in my picture is full of different kinds. MOSTLY bumGenius and FuzziBunz, but there are Royal Buns, Happy Heiny, Fuzzy Fannies, Angel Luvs...I bought one of several kinds and for MY baby bumGenius and Fuzzi Bunz fit the best. But your baby could be different.

Don't buy all of one kind of diaper.

It is worth it to buy used diapers cheaply on here and try them out. If they don't work for your baby, turn around and sell them back to us. That is the beauty of diaperswappers. You can buy from other mothers, keep what works and sell what doesn't to the next Mama. It may well work for her.

Also, what about the smell? Does the pail get stinky?
Yes. It does. But so do disposable diaper pails -- it goes with the nature of the business. I work hard to keep the smell down by washing often...every other day for me. I carry the dirty diapers down to my washer in the basement at the end of the day. And I wash the pail in my shower every time so there isn't any ammonia build-up on the plastic. But sometimes...yes, it smells.

With pocket diapers you have to wash both the insert and the cover.

I like the inserts that come with the bumGenius just fine and I like the ones that come with FuzziBunz. I haven't really met an insert yet that I didn't like. They all seem about the same to me.

I have never used a hemp insert. Just the ones that came with the diapers.

Welcome to diaperswappers and good luck with your diapering! I think you have made an excellent decision.

Re: How is your diaper station set up? Long post with lots of pictures

I am in awe!! Amazing job Mama!!

I just change DD wherever I manage to catch her. I fold dipes as they come out of the dryer and back in the basket they go. And if you want a laugh...my pail is a recycled kitty litter bucket with a handle and hinged lid.

Before we bought the garbage pail, my "diaper pail" was just the washing machine. I threw dirty diapers in there throughout the day then in the evening I ran the load.

Simple is good.
