For the past week I’ve been reading about cloth diapers and boy was the information overwhelming. There’s like a secret language when you’re into cloth diapering. Here’s some of them that you would encounter:
CD – cloth diaper
MCD – modern cloth diaper
AIO – All in One
AI2 – All in Two or Hybrid
I have so far been eyeing the following diapers

I’m still not sure whether the AIO or Pocket cloth diaper will work for us that’s why we have decided to try each kind available and work on our diaper stash when the baby arrives. As what other mom’s suggested online you will never know which one will work for you unless you’ve tried it yourself.
I assumed that cloth diapers will be available in the UAE market but I was wrong and didn’t find one single store in the mall that have them. Luckily I found a lady who sells the Australian brand itti bitti and cushie tushie, we have yet to meet her.
We also found 3 brands that are made in the Phillipines so I’m definitely going to get some from them as well.
By the way when I told C about using cloth he initially thought of the old kind of cloth diapering where you wrap the baby in cloth and use diaper pins. After showing him some youtube videos on cloth diapering he too was amazed at how modern cloth diapering is now.
Why have I decided to use cloth diaper ?
-Initial investments are quite big but in the long run one family will actually save a lot since you get to RE-USE each diaper. The most expensive diaper I found cost about 30USD and the cheapest is 7USD.
-Save the planet. Yes we want in our little way be responsible for our planet. With all the natural calamities happening around us it is the least we can do.
-Cute! oh my how lovely will my baby’s bum be with the lovely colors and beautiful designs available in the market.
