Today for Fashion Friday I am going to share the ways you can fashionize cloth diapers. In case you didn’t know, I have fallen in love with the world of cloth diapers. A deep love that may have possibly gone a little on the obsessive side. But I digress. Today is about fashionizing them, not my obsession with them. I am going to share a few ways you can do cloth diapers and how we’re doing them here at the Linkous house.
Wear them alone. There are a lot of diapers (including pocket diapers, all in ones, and diaper covers) that are cute as a button. We went with a lot of Kawaii brand diapers and also got some great steals on Blueberry covers. The reality is that these diapers don’t need anything over them at all. They are cute on their own and make a statement by themselves. I have put them with baby legs and a cute t-shirt, tunic, or dress and they work perfectly. Win!
Find diaper colors that work for you. This would go along with using the diaper itself to accessorize. Try to get colors you know you’ll use and will match other things that you have. We went for unisex pocket diapers and diaper covers. I don’t have one “girly” diaper at this point. If we did, I’d be ok with it, but I just figured these colors made her outfits more flexible with the diapers we had. My personal favorites are the ones that have a design on them that we can match with a solid top that blends well. Super cute!
Wear them with bloomers. If you’ve got a little girl, this is perfect. We have several bloomers that we got for dirt cheap or they came with other outfits that we use for multiples. They slide right over the diaper and over some extra protection from potential leaks. Please note that these are NOT waterproof so you still need your waterproof cover for your diapers.
Keep in mind that butt fluff adds extra inches to your child. It’s true. Emma usually wears 18-24 months clothing when she has butt fluff on her behind. When she was dealing with her yeast infection and wearing disposable, we went back to size 12-18 months. It’s crazy how it can add on the extra inches so keep that in mind if you make the switch or start out with your baby in cloth.
This is how we’re fashionizing our fluff. How about you?
