Sometimes being eco-conscious is all about remebering..

Once you've gotten reusable grocery bags, your fave coffee travel mug, a sippy cup, a wet bag, cloth dapers, your wipes and face cloths, your awesome glass water bottle, reusable food containers and snack bags- you're set up for for success eliminating a large portion of what you could be sending to the landfill.

Now your only barrier left is to remember to bring along all your reusable gear

Cloth Diaper Check List

When you're shopping for cloth diapers it can be overwhelming at first but quickly becomes fun to dress your baby in adorable diapers.

Here's what you need to get started:

  • 24-36 Cloth Wipes (you can't really have enough of these!)
  • Cloth Diaper Safe Laundry Detergent (Save yourself time, do it right from the start)
  • 1-2 Wet Bags for keeping soiled diapers in while you're out 

  • 1-2 Pail Liners (1 for sure, 2 if you want one while the other is washing)
 Items that you may find really helpful when cloth diapering but not everyone uses all of these. I suggest keeping some cloth diaper safe diaper cream on hand so you won't be tempted to use something else and later have to scrub it out of your diapers (that's not fun!).

If you need a hand getting started, send me an email.
