Newborn FAQ

How many diapers will I need for my newborn?
On average, newborns go through 12-15 diapers per day. We suggest washing your diapers every 2-3 days, so depending on how often you plan to wash; we suggest having 24-45 diapers for your newborn baby. If you are using an option that uses separate covers, you will need fewer covers since they can be reused multiple times.

Berapa banyak cloth diaper yang saya perlukan untuk bayi saya yang baru lahir?

How do I prep my newborn diapers?

Any natural fiber like hemp, bamboo or cotton needs to be washed and dried 4-5 times before use. You will need to use detergent on your washes to help remove the natural oils. You do need to do the dries between each wash cycle to help break up the natural fibers and increase their absorbency. They will continue to get even more absorbent in the washes following your initial prep. Synthetic fibers like microfiber only need to be washed and dried once before use.

If you plan to use cloth wipes, you will need 10-12 wipes per day as well as your wipe solution if you don’t plan to use plain water.

Will a one-size diaper fit my newborn?

Most brands of one-size diapers begin fitting babies close to 10 pounds, but that will vary depend on the build of your baby. Any one size diaper is going to bulkier on a newborn than a sized diaper would since the diaper needs to grow with your baby and fit through the toddler years. If you want an ultra-trim diaper for your newborn, we suggest using a sized diaper option. If you like the convenience of a one-size diaper, look for one that has a sized insert option like a Best Bottom Diaper with a small insert or a Flip Diaper with a newborn insert.

Jika anda lebih suka jenis One-Size, boleh guna BumGenius 4.0, Rumparooz atau Flip bersama dengan newborn insert.
