It depends on such criteria as the age of your baby and the amount of laundry you wish to endure.
Newborn Cloth Diapers: Newborns need to be changed at least 12-15 times a day. This means you need to purchase approximately 24-36 diapers,if you wish to launder every other day.
3 Months to Toddler: From the age of 3 months, the extent of diaper changing decreases to 10-12 diapers a day, so you can settle with 20-30 diapers. This quantity allows you to do laundry every 2-3 days.
If you chose to buy our Baby Koala OS that suits all babies – newborns and toddlers until they are potty trained–we recommend you start with 24 cloth diapers.
In order to start using our pocket microfiber Baby Koala diapers, liners, and soakers you need to wash them first, so they are fresh and clean before touching your baby’s sensitive skin.
Natural fabrics made of cotton, hemp, or bamboo can be used immediately. But, their absorbance is improved the more they are washed. The easiest way is to simply put them in the washing machine (without a softener, of course).Cloth diapers should be washed and dried 3-4 times before their first use.
Cloth diapers made of cotton or hemp can be used with a rash cream.Petroleum-based creams tend to produce less stains. However, synthetic polyester fabrics can be seriously stained and damaged by petroleum-based creams, like Vaseline,which will affect the diaper’s absorbency. If the diaper was smeared with petroleum, try washing it with a dishwashing liquid. But, remember to rinse it before tossing the diaper to the washing machine.
It is best to place a liner that comes between your baby’s petroleum-smeared bottom and the diaper.
After the diaper is removed, it should be aired in an open laundry bag or in a well-ventilated location. You don’t want to soak your diapers in a tub with water or vinegar. This may affect the product’s longevity.
Diapers of breast-fed babies can be tossed straight into the washing machine, even if they are soiled. Babies who feed on formulas or those who started eating solid food need to have their soiled diaper rinsed into the toilet before they are tossed into the washing machine.
You should keep in mind that your soiled diapers are considered a heavy-duty laundry. Nonetheless, this doesn’t mean that special detergents must be used in order to clean them. All you need is a certain laundry routine – always choose the longer plan that includes prewashing.
