Hard to believe but leaks should NOT be a common occurrence with cloth. Consider these tips to make sure cloth is working smoothly for your family!
#1: Make sure the leg holes on the cover are snug. Do the 1 finger test: If you can slip one finger in between your babe’s leg and the cover and it feels snug, then it’s on properly.
#2: Is there any cotton sticking out? Oh no! Tuck that sucker in! Cotton peeking out is a no, no!
#3: If you check your baby every 2-3 hours and the diaper is SOAKED! Move up in size!
Did you know that you can start potty learning as soon as your baby is either crawling or walking around? Or even earlier if you practice E.C. (we’ll chat about that later). Here’s how to gradually transition your baby to the potty in a gentle, non-“training” way:
#1: Whenever possible have your baby crawl or walk around in just their cotton diaper. (* you’ll need to secure it with a snappi). When you see the diaper a bit soaked, point out the potty and say something like, “wow! do you feel that? you just went potty in your diaper! We go to the potty in the toilet. There it is. If you’d like, try sitting on the potty next time :)”
