Basic Types of Cloth Diapers and How to Choose the Right One for Your Family

With so many different cloth diaper styles and types on the market you may be a little confused with which one is right for you. Every family has a different lifestyle and preferences vary; which is why there are so many different cloth diapers. When deciding on which cloth diaper style is right for your family you’ll want to consider the different types of diapers (all-in-one, newborn, pocket, flats, etc), sized vs one-size options, closure options, whether the diaper will require an extra cover, types of fabric you prefer (natural, synthetic, or combo), ease of use, and price. Below is a quick chart to help you narrow down your options. You can click on each type of diaper and learn more about that specific type and the diaper options that are in that category.
