What would you need to get started?
This recommendation is for a full-time two day supply of diapers
22 diapers and 8 covers
18 months to the potty
12 diapers and 4 covers
With bumGenius! diapers you do not need any covers at all.
Our most popular covers are the Bummis Super Whisper Wraps and the Bummis Super Brites. These can go on top of any diaper - a flat rectangle "prefold" diaper or one of the many brands of fitted cloth diapers that snap or velcro closed. The cheapest way to buy quality diapers is the Bummis Starter Kit. Made in Canada by a solid company with fabulous phone customers service, this boxed set is a very popular baby shower gift. It's a really easy way to get the whole system in place before baby comes. Or, if baby is here already and cloth diapering seems complicated with the many brands out there, buying the 15-30 pounds box is enough to diaper your baby from about 4 months old to age 3, washing twice a week and never wasting another dollar on disposables.
Also, we recommend a small waterproof bag for outings.
Modern cloth diapers - maybe not what you're thinking!
