1. How do you deal with childcare centers? I am due in June and plan to put my baby in daycare in August. I am worried about convincing them to accommodate us.

    1. I am so sorry to say that I honestly don’t have any advice on this… I stay home with my daughter and so she hasn’t been in day care… But I’m sure if you check some of the cloth diaper Facebook groups there have to be moms that have experience with this. I hope that helps!

  2. Love this series! I’m not preggo yet, but have read a lot on cloth diapering already and would love to hear more about it. Thank you! I definitely look forward to hearing about all of the bullet points you mentioned you’ll be sharing. Some questions I would have would be what brand do you use and the whole laundry process. Also, what if you’re out on the town and need to change a diaper? Where do ya put the used one? May be a dumb question, but hey, I’m not a mama yet 🙂 Thanks Molly!

  3. Hooray! Cutie patootie baby bums are the BEST! I’m excited to be invited to learn about cloth diapering, even though I’m in the “not a mom but still curious about some cute bums” category :]

  4. We did disposables for our first, but now that #2 is coming in a few months, I’m feeling a little more confident about cloth and wondering how it all works/if its for us. I am really looking forward to reading your experiences!!! I think my biggest concern would be – what do you do when you’re out and about (in terms of dealing with dirty diapers)?

  5. We started cloth diapers with M was about 6 weeks old. It’s been going pretty well (and she’s nearly 4 months). I have loved using GroVia diapers best. I look forward to hearing more about your cloth diapering journey. And my reasons are about the same: cost savings! cuteness factor and helping the environment 🙂

  6. Hi Molly! Great post and turn for your blog through this stage of your life! I am not a mother, but when that day comes I know I will greatly consider cloth diapers. The cost and waste are my top two reasons as well. Thanks for your expected calculations, but a few question: How many cloth diapers constitute a “full stash?” How do you do the laundry – just a load of diapers or mixed? Seems like it would take a lot of diapers to go through that many changes for a load of laundry. If you plan to answer these in the rest of the series, I’ll be reading. 🙂

  7. As a soon to be mom in March 2014, I’m interested in learning more! I want to know the cleaning process of the cloth diapers and cloth wipes when you’re out in public and have to do a diaper change? Like what do you do and where do you store the used re-useable cloth diapers and cloth wipes when away from home?

  8. Molly! I am so excited to read all about your experiences with cloth diapering. I’ve known for a while that I want to take that route when I have children, and as silly as it sounds, I positively love reading about it. I’m really curious as to how many diapers you have, and what sizes. I’ve heard a lot of people say that they choose to use disposable newborns, to avoid the extra cost of newborn diapers. But I really hate the thought of contributing even that many diapers to the landfills. I’d love to hear how they are working on Lily since she is still so young. Love the blog! You are truly God’s disciple to so many of us. God bless 🙂

  9. I’ve been cloth diapering since my oldest was 3 months old. I love it and was so excited when you were pregnant and mentioned you were going to cloth diaper.

    1. hey claire! i have – i tried a few gdiapers that someone gave us, but they just didn’t work well for lilly – i, unfortunately, just wasn’t really a fan. 🙁 although I do know that some moms LOVE them!!
