The manufactuer in their demo bills the pail as not requiring special bags thus money savings (source). Probably Hanlon's razor as several people on the product page complain that the pail rips bags (search keywords "tear" and "rip" separately in the reviews).

>Ubbi, your diaper pail needs to go back to drawing board because there are major design flaws. See photo. I have had many garbage bags fail in this pail from Ubbi bags, to Hefty ultra strong flex, and now industrial strength 30 gl bags. The reason for this is the stupid lip this trash can has at the top for the seal and duel lid to act as an anti-smell capsule. Every time the bag will catch on this lip and tears. Fail at least once a week now and I have 2 kids


>This works great if you like to pick up diapers by hand when the bag tears open. Seriously. There are little downward facin tabs around the rim that sometimes snag the bag and can tear it open. Sometimes is too often IMHO when dealing with dirty diapers. My better half says it never happens and I do it wrong - don't know, I'm certainly not try to bare hand deal with the toxic contents and it's happened DOZENS of times over the last 3 years. When my last one is out of diapers I swear to Christ I'm gonna take an ax to this thing.


>I regret my purchase of this container. It doesn't hold nearly as many diapers as my last one and it's a pain to replace the bags. When them unit is full, it's horribly smelly to replace the bags and when you pull it out, the bag tears every time from the back hinge.


Apparently you may be using an older revision of the pail as the manufacturer commented on one of the bad reviews saying they had changed the product to make the bags not tear:

>Our latest Ubbi diaper pail models have:

>1. Smoother teeth on the bag holder, and are turned upward instead of downward

>2. A smoother cover to shield the jagged rim, so the bag doesn’t get stuck in between these teeth

>We do hope these updates and explanations help ease your frustrations with your Ubbi diaper pail. Send us an email at [email protected] so we can further discuss your issue and come to a solution. Kindly accept our sincere apologies for the inconvenience and we look forward to hearing from you!

Here are a couple more pictures.

Top Five that money can buy:

  1. Babyletto Hudson 3-in-1 crib. I’ve seen this crib in lots of nursery pics. It is easy to put together and sturdy. We picked ours up off Facebook Marketplace for $125, including the conversion kit.

  2. Hatch Rest sound machine and night light. we got a chance to trial run this little gadget a couple days ago when a friend’s toddler napped at our house. It was nice being able to change the sounds and light colors and turn up the sound using an app on my phone. Toddler was fussing and we turned up the sound a little and he went to sleep! Magic!

  3. Jellycat stuffed animals. They are just so cute. I give one to all the new babies in my life. My brother and SIL gifted this baby with one.

  4. Ubbi diaper pail. I don’t have experience using it, but it calms my nerves about poop. 🤷‍♀️

  5. Nambe photo frame. This was a gift. It is the sweetest little frame ever and not something I think I would have splurged on for myself, but seeing it in person, I think it would be an amazing gift for new parents and even worth buying for yourself. It’s so precious.

    Top Five that money can’t buy:

  6. The quilt hanging in the wall was made by my great grandmother and was my baby quilt! My mom surprised me with it at my shower.

  7. The framed art and picture. The top is a painting of baby garibaldis (sooooo cute!), which is the state fish of California. The bottom is a photo of my husband riding on his dad’s shoulders as a toddler.

  8. This book collection. We asked people to just gift baby with a book (they gave us soooo much more in addition), and we ended up with the most wonderful collection of funny and sweet books that will continue to remind us that we have an amazing family and network of friends.

  9. Box full of Beany Babies. Sentimental gift to baby from my mom.

  10. The yellow giraffe basket. My best friend gave us this and told me that she had bought when I was pregnant the first time (with a baby I lost to miscarriage). For some reason it just makes me so happy that there’s something meant for that baby in this room. ❤️🌈
u/UnicornToots · 31 pointsr/BabyBumps

You don't need 3 swings/rockers - pick one.

You don't need 2 strollers - pick one.

You don't need 2 activity mats - pick one.

You don't need 2 cribs - pick one.

You don't need 2 mattresses - pick one.

You have 3 different bottle types; I'd recommend choosing just one and not bother getting another brand unless your baby has issues with that one. You don't want to unbox, sanitize, etc. and risk not being able to return the other set.

I don't see the point of those "wet and dry wipes" organizer pouches; a ziploc bag works just fine if you want to carry small amounts of wipes with you.

As far as baby carriers go, I recommend Lillebaby over Infantino, hands down. They sell some of their styles in Target, but you can get more on the Lillebaby website or Amazon. You may want opinions from /r/babywearing, or go to a local Babywearing International meeting to try out carriers before choosing one.

Things I don't see:

  • Washcloths
  • Towel/robe
  • First aid essentials (thermometer, nail clipper, Nose Frida, baby Tylenol, baby Motrin, diaper rash cream, Aquafor, hair brush, shampoo, etc.)
  • More sheet sets. My daughter just had a nose bleed last night and that means we only have one more fitted sheet that isn't stained in some way. Get more! Haha.
  • Baby monitor - totally a personal choice, but I recommend one.
  • Muselin blankets or swaddles. I know you have the velcro swaddles, which are great, but sometimes baby just needs a light blanket in the car seat or in their swing. Even though my daughter is almost 2, we still have a swaddle cloth in her diaper bag. I use it to cover the ground if she wants to play on the floor somewhere that's filthy (like an airport terminal).
  • Burp cloths. We always used these tri-fold diapers as burp cloths - they're not trendy-looking, but they're cheap and very effective.
  • Other basic clothing items like footie PJs, pants, hats (since you're having a winter baby, assuming you're in the northern hemisphere), etc.

    I always recommend Lucie's List when it comes to having a basic, not-overdone registry. They talk about essentials (not fluff) and sort things by price.

    You may also want to post this in /r/beyondthebump rather than here, since everyone in Beyond The Bump have already had a kid.

    Good luck!
u/T-Bills · 25 pointsr/personalfinance

Either way, it's not like there's a way to go back in time. I'd say for OP's husband to start working ASAP. And also for OP:

> I plan to stop getting takeout food now

Do that ASAP

> Is it worth it to invest more in a deep freezer to be able to save money long term?

No. You can reuse some Chinese takeout containers, cook an entire week's worth of meals one day a week and freeze them. Why do you need some kind of special freezer?

> Cloth diapers? Or are those things not worth it with the upfront costs? What else can we do to pay this off?

Cloth diapers are $12 for 10-pack on Amazon. You can reuse them for your kids and you'll save money in the long run.

u/orb360 · 21 pointsr/Parenting

You can get scented disposable bags to put the diapers inside and then dump them in a can, or keep them in the diaper bag till you get home.

Works pretty well


u/unicorndanceparty · 17 pointsr/xxfitness

I bought wet/dry bags and throw my sweaty/wet clothes in them so that they don't get anything else wet. I try to remember to lay my clothes/towel out in the trunk to dry out a bit but it doesn't always happen, lol. I also bought a quick dry microfiber towel which rolls up neatly, doesn't take up much space, and dries fast.

All of my shower and makeup stuff are in travel sized bottles (can be purchased from Walmart or the Dollar store for cheap!) to save room in my bag.

As for food, I just use an insulated lunch bag with a small ice pack and that is more than enough to keep my lunch cold until I get to work.

I do pack everything the night before. I always keep an extra pair of underwear/socks/bra in my car just in case I forget to pack them.

Best of luck with the change! It becomes a lot easier and you learn more tricks and time savers as you go along :) I used to think showering/getting ready at the gym after a workout was such a hassle, but I have consolidated things enough at this point that it is pretty easy.


Edit: a word

u/MouSe05 · 13 pointsr/Parenting

Only $10, and even cheaper if you get it on subscription. This is what we buy for our two kids. We are NEVER without wipes for any situation.

u/ernieball · 13 pointsr/BabyBumps

Absolutely essential for us. I have a basset hound who LOVES to roll in poop and can smell the moment my mom opens a bag of licorice from two blocks away. There's no way we could dispose of a dirty diaper in a regular trash can - we'd have to take it straight outside after every change... and that's not going to happen 12 times a day or at all hours of the night. We have the Ubbi Steel Diaper Can and I 10/10 recommend. Been using it almost a year now and it damn near eliminates the stink while closed (formula fed baby, too!) - my hound doesn't even realize it's there, and he lays right next to it during diaper changes. Works much better than my brother's diaper genie or munchkin can. It also has a locking lid, which is a life saver now that my son is running around and getting into everything. I love that I can throw any bag I want into it, too, unlike other diaper cans - this alone about offsets the price difference over its lifetime. We empty it every three-ish days - easy as pie.

ETA - I purchased this pack of trash bags before my son was born and we're just now getting to the last maybe 5 bags on the third roll... so even if you do use the actual Ubbi bags you're looking at $20 for a years' worth.

u/crankerpants · 12 pointsr/beyondthebump

We love our Ubbi diaper pail: Expensive but holds the odor so well and uses standard trash bags, which is nice, and lots of colors to work with your house.

We couldn't live without the Rock and Play or Ergo carrier. Sleepers with foldover mittens were a lifesaver too - Old Navy had ones that worked for us. Also, absorbent pads for the changing table! We set them on top of the changing pad cover, and just wash them when there are poop/pee incidents.

Lots of onesies - it just made sense for us early to just dress her in a onesie and call it good. Carters worked well - the Gerber ones were a bit thinner and ran small.

We used Circo receiving blankets as burp cloths because we received like seven million as gifts.

Worst purchases: lots of newborn sized clothes - she grew out of them so fast and never wore 90%! We've yet to get any use of our baby shoes, because her feet are teeny, so we stick with just socks.

u/Lo452 · 11 pointsr/beyondthebump

Linking the OXO dispenser on Amazon

LOVE THESE. Seriously the best $20 I've ever spent, these also allow you to buy those bulk/refill packs of wipes that have like, 300+ wipes per bag. Saved a lot of money that way.

u/bonesonstones · 10 pointsr/upcycling

Just an fyi for anyone looking, there are some really cool diaper bins out there that work to keep smells at bay without having to buy these super expensive and kinda wasteful plastic cassettes:

u/HowManyLurks · 10 pointsr/BabyBumps

This wasnt super cheap ($60 USD) but me and SO are in love with it. Its high quality, and he doesnt feel like he's carrying a cheesy diaper bag...for that matter neither do I!

u/SUBARU17 · 10 pointsr/beyondthebump

Do you have one of those oxo wipes holders? That thing has been the most important tool in our parenting box. OXO Tot Perfect Pull Wipes Dispenser, Gray

u/binderclips · 9 pointsr/AprilBumpers2018

:( That does sound hectic. My registry is kinda all over the place because I've already bought a ton of stuff, but just some suggestions of some things (FTM so no idea really if these are good or not, some were recommendations from friends, some were recommendations from various online resources).

  • car seat, extra base if you have more than one car, and stroller
  • baby carrier - I got the ergobaby 360 with infant insert but the Lillebaby 360 is also super popular.
  • swaddles - aden & anais seem to be hugely popular.
  • bathing supplies - washcloths, bathtub
  • first aid kit supplies - NoseFrida, nail clipper, thermometer
  • feeding - bottles, sterilizer (some people told me I had to have it, some said it was totally unnecessary), bottle cleaner brush, drying rack (seems like everyone else loves the Boon grass, but I don't have the counter space!) You can get a pump through your insurance if you plan to breastfeed, I ordered mine through Aeroflow. I ultimately chose the Spectra S2 over the Medela PISA because it's a closed system, which apparently means less chances of bacteria getting into the system and thus easier cleaning.
  • burp clothes - I was told to just get a ton of cloth diapers to use as burp clothes, and to have them everywhere.
  • diaper pail - I have two friends who say this is good enough, so I went with it. They also said to use doggie poop bags to contain the smelly diapers.
  • humidifier
  • Boppy for nursing
  • Backpack style diaper bag
  • baby may need a more convenient place to be set down other than the crib, something you can have near you in the kitchen, shower, whatever. Popular options are the rock n play, Boppy lounger, or a pack 'n play. I plan on getting the Chicco FastAsleep pack 'n play because the crib/dresser/changing station is on our 2nd floor, so I figured this could double as a changing station/napper on the first floor.

    Lucie's List is probably the best resource I found online.
u/bigbadmax · 9 pointsr/predaddit

Graduated to dad life a month ago so I'm no expert, but personally I think a diaper bag is worth it. I got this. My wife on the other hand just uses a big beach style bag and it is really hard to find things in it, but I'm a bit OCD when it comes to organizing stuff.

The reasons I personally like a dedicated diaper bag:

  • insulated pocket for bottles
  • lots of pockets to organize stuff
  • exterior wipe dispenser
  • changing pad (you are going to want one of these)
  • special clip to snap onto stroller

    Anyway I hope this helps. Best of luck.
u/imbeingmauledbybears · 8 pointsr/breakingmom

Ah! I always suggest cloth diapers as my go-to secret mom hack, and I always give them at showers. I use disposable diapers for the bum, but spit up and vomit and and pee emergencies and everything else can be handled with cheapo cloth diapers. They're just fantastic. Forget those tiny little landing-strip burp cloths, because I haven't met a baby yet that's polite enough to only projectile-spit-up in such a tiny range.

u/BenDQuick · 8 pointsr/crossfit

Wet/dry diaper bags should do the trick and fairly inexpensive.

The larger ones we use for diapers would easily hold my gym clothes.

Make sure to get a larger size.

u/integralspants · 7 pointsr/puppy101

this is going to sound ridiculous, but I use pre-fold cloth diapers. They're super absorbent and easy to wash. You can get them from amazon (here) or even Target/Walmart. Bonus: they're also great for cleaning other things and dusting.

u/semicolonmania · 7 pointsr/Parentingfails

Basically the same thing - snaps instead of elastic fasteners, 2 extra loads of laundry (we wash them twice), like the other person said and rinsing out the poop.

Also, costs way less, in the long run. We dropped about $350 on these and they'll last until our baby is potty trained.

We still keep disposables in the diaper bag for emergencies and put them on when the baby sleeps because they're more absorbent than cloth.

u/Topher3001 · 7 pointsr/medicalschool


Target have great sales on diapers sometimes. And you get like $25 giftcards when you spend x amounts etc. Can save you a lot of money.

Milk warmers are great. You shouldn't microwave, especially breast milk.

Start the baby on a regular schedule EARLY. We started on our son at 1 month, and by 4-5 months he was already sleeping from 8pm to 5 am.

Burp your baby! Gas is not fun for you or the little one.

White noise maker is great at putting baby to sleep, especially when they are young. If you rather not buy one, there are lots of youtube channels that has 8 hr of white noise. Put that on when baby fussy really helps.

Get this.

u/Moonlissa · 7 pointsr/xxfitness

Wet Bags worth every penny!

u/AlphaAnt · 6 pointsr/predaddit

So first off, ignore the "good for the environment" arguments. They've been mostly debunked.

My wife and I switched to cloth diapers because they're cheaper. There's an initial buy-in, but that should be enough to last you a while. We even travel with cloth diapers, we just have a small wet bag in our diaper bag (instead of plastic bags) and a large one at home.

Changing diapers isn't too much more difficult with cloth diapers than disposables. Laundry has become pretty frequent, but with babies that's going to happen anyway. We do a load of diapers every 2 to 3 days, pre-rinsing in cold water, washing hot, using Rockin' Green as detergent. No folding, it all just gets dumped into a bin next to the changing table.

As for the diapers themselves, we've been using Bummis pre-folds with various brands of diaper covers, but we plan on switching to BumGenius when our son is big enough to fit them (his legs are too skinny). No safety pins either, we use Snappis.

As for the kid's reaction, as soon as we switched to cloth, his diaper rash went away. There have been a few leg leaks, but my son has chicken-wing-skinny legs so there's not much we can do about that (every brand of disposables we tried leaked as well).

One piece of advice before you decide: if you already have daycare lined up (if daycare is even a thing for your family) check to see whether they're ok with cloth diapers. Some will only deal with disposables, for obvious reasons.

u/34F · 6 pointsr/beyondthebump

We have this:

Yes, it's expensive but it works! We also got it at Buy Buy Baby with a 20% off coupon which is incredibly easy to find. It uses regular trash bags so that's great, and as long as you remember to close the lid, it keeps all the smell contained. The only downside we've found is that because it's so big, it holds like a weeks worth of diapers, and then the bag is so crazy heavy when it's time to change it that I can't lift it and my husband has to do it! Not such a bad downside for me actually :)

u/ZeJaggernaut · 6 pointsr/Parenting

Apologies in advance for the length of my response. I have no doubt someone will just send you a link for everything you need to know and it'll be awesome, but here's my personal experience, fwiw.

We got a bunch off of amazon that are ridiculously adjustable. They snap together in different ways for the adjustments, but they're basically just like disposables in how they go on and how the tabs snap to the front. Idk if links are allowed, but here's the specific ones we got:

They come with a little cotton insert, but we discovered that it wasn't enough to contain the disasters that happened, so we also got additional liner thingies:

You take the diaper (the part that looks like a regular disposable), you lay the white cotton liner thingy that came with it, and the additional bamboo liner inside (just lay it in there, we don't mess with the pockets or anything), and then stick it on the kiddo.

We check more frequently than we had to with the disposables because it's less obvious if they're wet, but when it comes time to change, you can change like you normally do and then instead of throwing away the diaper you put it in a wet bag:

We just use disposable wipes and throw them away in a plastic bag if they're extra gross, or just wrapped in another wipe if they're just pee wipes. You can use cloth if you want, though, and then they'd go in the wet bag with the diapers and inserts. If there's poo, you can wipe it off into the toilet, or you can use a fancy sprayer that you attach to the waterline running to your toilet. It just stays connected to the toilet all the time and hangs up on the wall next to it. You turn it on when you need to use it. We bought one, and then almost never used it, fwiw:

The diapers and inserts stay in the wet bag until you've got a couple, then you do a load of laundry. We just stick them in the machine and basically run 2 cycles, both hot, because we don't have any kind of "sterilize" option on our machine. You can dry them in the dryer, or do a clothesline or something if you have option, time, and inclination.

They're bulky, and I recommend buying a few packs of them so you don't have little nakey ones running around while you're trying to get laundry done, but I feel like they're worth it.

Sorry for the million amazon links; no affiliation or anything, that's just where we do most of our shopping, ha!

u/witch_life · 5 pointsr/BabyBumps

I've always just chucked disposables into a bag then tossed them in the outdoor garbage can at the end of the day. For cloth get a wet bag. I recommend getting a sprayer attachment and giving them a quick rinse beforehand. Makes everything easier and less smelly

u/MiniMePlease · 5 pointsr/Mommit

They make backpack diaper bags (this is the one I got). It's really nice because you can put it under the seat on a flight and nothing falls out. And it's comfortable to wear.

u/meow_meemeez · 5 pointsr/beyondthebump

We use this one and I LOVE it. I can stuff so much shit in it and it clips onto the stroller and grocery carts. It's a little bulky but the only time that mattered was on the plane but I still was able to shove it under the seat in front of me. I'm really glad we went with this bag instead of the tote I was looking at before though.

u/mechitgood · 4 pointsr/BabyBumps

I'm pregnant with my third and still using cloth. People thought the same stuff about us at first. My MIL said she wouldn't be babysitting with them but gladly does.

Side note, we used disposables before and I babysat for a friends kids who used disposables. People would say "cloth is gross" having never used it. Meanwhile I've had wayyyyy more poop explosions with disposables rather than cloth. Enough that my friends daughter would have to be bathed and outfit changed almost every time she pooped at my house. My friend told me it was common at her house too.

Gonna be honest and I was a little turned off by what people were saying at first. But we LOVE cloth over disposables any day. Now my husband and I joke around and make fun of the people at his job who complain how much disposables cost. I couldn't see adding a ton of disposables to a landfill and the chemicals that go into making disposables.

I'll help you out with any questions you have. Feel free to PM me whenever. We've used pretty much every different type and brand available and have stuck with prefolds and covers. I'd say invest in a couple prefolds if you can. I used the small size (yellow edge) from 3 months to over 2 years old. We buy from green mountain diapers or Amazon. You can get 6 of these for $13. Don't be thrown off by the 7-15lbs. That's about the size you'd use them if you wanted to wrap them around baby. We did that in an "angel fold" from newborn to 3 months and then did a trifold after. Also in terms of "prepping" we prep prefolds with regular laundry. So they get washed and dried with other stuff and not wasting the water and soap by themselves.

u/powlalala · 4 pointsr/Buyingforbaby

Mitten cuff onesies are our favorite to use on our little one. Especially when he was just born, it was too hard to trim his nails and having the option to cover his hands without dealing with mittens made it so easy. We also don't use much of the pajamas that covers their legs because the less buttons you have to deal with in the middle of the night, the better.

Gerber Unisex-Baby Newborn 3 Pack Longsleeve Mitten Cuff Onesies Brand, White, 0-3 Months

You'll definitely need more burp cloths. I have about 30 and could use more. Cloth diapers as burp cloths are great since they're so absorbent. We use these the most.

Gerber Birdseye 3-Ply Prefold Cloth Diapers, White, 10 Count

Our baby also loves his Wubbanub and they're nice so baby can practice grabbing things and they don't roll off baby as easily as a regular pacifier would. They have a ton of different animals.

But really overall your registry looks good! You have a great variety of different sized clothes so that's good. The Dr. Brown's bottles are also great, I would just suggest having a large bowl in your sink to soak all the parts without them touching everything else in the sink. Or if you have a divided sink maybe use just one side for baby things. The only extras I would suggest are a small nail kit to keep in your diaper bag, baby blankets to cover baby up in his car seat or to swaddle, and Aquaphor when lotion isn't enough. Hope that helps!

u/Peachmaru · 4 pointsr/InfertilityBabies

I love my diaper pail so much!! I got the Ubbi diaper pail. I have never smelled anything coming out of that thing, the seals are so good (unless I forget and leave it open, but that's not their fault). It's stainless steel so the dog can't get into it, cause my dog has been known to eat plastic to get to something he wants to eat. I use regular kitchen trash bags with it. It's expensive for a can that holds poop, but it's cheaper than a good regular stainless steel trash can. I highly recommend it!

u/Atworkwasalreadytake · 4 pointsr/lifehacks
u/DeyCallMeTater · 4 pointsr/BabyBumps

Here you go! I think it's this one, or if not, this is clearly very very close lol

u/tinapop · 3 pointsr/BabyBumps

Warning - lots of text below! My baby is about 6 weeks now and I'm exclusively breastfeeding. My Medela Harmony manual pump has been fine for building a stash - I pump 1-2 times a day for the freezer and occasional bottle feedings from Dad. I think it's pretty convenient, but I'll be using a double electric pump when I go back to work (waiting to see what Tricare will cover in 2015!).

Whatever you decide to use for diapering, I'd strongly recommend getting some prefolds (I got Osocozy unbleached). They're great for burp cloths, catching milk from your other boob during letdown, etc and they're also way cheaper and more absorbent than fancy burp cloths. Personally I love prefolds and covers for diapering, but don't buy too much into any one system or brand until you know what works for you. My husband hates prefolds so now I'm having to add pockets and AIOs to appease him.

I'd get some swaddlers (at least 2; my favorite is from Nuroo but that was a gift and they're pricey, the summer infant SwaddleMe wraps are good now that she's bigger but didn't fit well until about 10 lbs). My girl lives in footed pajamas and I love the Gerber zipped ones, we found tons at goodwill for $1.50 each but if you can't find them used, they're on Amazon for $10 for a 2 pack. You're right that other people will buy clothes, but they'll pick cutesy stuff and you need some practical choices too.

Nursing pillow - I had an unexpected C section and this has been so necessary. I love the Luna Lullaby since it's big and I had a big baby.

Some kind of baby carrier, I got a Moby wrap while she's small and it's amazing for running errands (I put it on before getting in the car and pop her in before going in the store, WAY easier than a carseat and stroller).

We were gifted a used swing and it is a freaking godsend. It's the only way I get chores done since I can pop her in there and cook, do laundry, clean, etc without her crying. YMMV, some babies hate them, but buy used and you won't be out too much cash.

Wubbanub pacifier is easy to keep track of and super cute.

Pack n Play with a mattress for cosleeping (recommended to reduce SIDS risk for the first 6 months). At least 2 mini crib sheets.

Earth Mama Angel Baby nipple butter is amazing for the first couple weeks.

QuickZip crib sheets will be amazing once you use the crib.

Simba baby safety nail cutter - no bleeding!

Finally, the Itzbeen pocket nanny timer is so helpful for keeping track of feedings and diaper changes, especially in the first few weeks.

Hope this wasn't too overwhelming. Good luck!

*Edited to add links to products.

u/treehaus_ · 3 pointsr/BabyBumps

I've heard the Gerber pre folds have declined in quality. I went for the [OsoCozy] ( and love them. Super thick!

u/peachybutton · 3 pointsr/BabyBumps

I nursed my son for 18 months, including pumping at work for months 3-12.

For bottles, I'd start with the Medela ones that come with your pump. Some babies are picky and some aren't - my kiddo would take breastmilk from a garden hose. If baby is not into these, go from there.

For your pump, double check to make sure it will come with some kind of cold-storage bag and ice pack. I have the PISA tote bag one from when my 4yo was a baby, and it came with this, but I bought it myself so I don't know about the insurance options. You might also be interested in milk storage bags or some other longer-term milk storage solution as you pump more.

Finally, I'd recommend having some flat cloth diapers around in addition to nursing pads. After a few washes, they're super absorbent and perfect for spitup messes, overspray when your kiddo gets distracted and lets go of the nipple, and putting in your bra while you sleep in case you end up on your belly and start leaking!

u/ElizabethLTCD · 3 pointsr/clothdiaps

I love using Rumparooz covers and OsoCozy prefolds because both hold up wonderfully well (I've used mine for 3+ years with 2 kids and my covers are perfect; my prefolds are just now showing wear). I have a few Alva pockets (which are on Amazon for $30 for 6 including inserts), but I don't really like them because they leak and the elastics relax fairly quickly. I use them only as back-up diapers on days I wash my main stash. I know they're more economical, but I feel like I wouldn't buy them again because I just don't trust them for long periods of time. If you're having a baby shower, I'd register for the better cloth diapers because you might get them! And then go from there...building your stash with what you can afford after your shower. :)

Rumparooz and Thirsties brands are both good (they both have pocket diapers; I believe Thirsties also has an AIO as well).

I think some of this depends on your situation...are you cramped for space, low on cash, looking for ways to keep your life as uncluttered as possible?

That's kind of my wheelhouse. So from that perspective:

  • Good convertible carseat. The bucket seats (the ones with the click-off base and carry handle) have to be upgraded at a certain point. I lucked out with my first kid. She was almost 2 before she hit 20 pounds. But My 3rd kid outgrew it at like 6 months. Lesson learned, just use the convertible. It reclines more for an infant and then stays rear-facing usually up to about 30-40 pounds (when your child is about 3 years old - the new recommendation for turning them forward facing). The cost of two seats is worth it if you have 2 vehicles and will regularly be trading off driving duties (like one spouse dropping at daycare, and the other spouse picking up). It's smarter to do two seats - so that you don't risk installing the seat incorrectly b/c of the constant shuffling.

  • Sleeping space: The most basic IKEA crib is perfect. It's cheap, easy to move, a mattress can be raised and lowered, and it's fairly small, so might fit through doorways. Baby has no idea how much her crib costs. Room sharing is much easier this way, too (for parents not interested in bed sharing).

  • The most basic style of flannel receiving blankets. Mostly b/c these can double as many other things. Obviously, you have traditional uses like swaddling and keeping baby warm. But I have used them as: barrier between baby and floor for diaper changes, or the grocery cart, an emergency diaper, emergency towel, emergency 'soak up whatever that gross liquid is', burp rags, nursing cover, I've soaked them in water to help cool baby down on a hot day or during a fever. (And maybe less important, but a good old fashioned style baby pin or new fashioned style pin - in case you do need to wrap up an emergency diaper...You might never need it, but I've used pins for plenty of things that aren't diapers, too.)

  • All the onesies. Don't go crazy with cute outfits. There will be plenty of time for them, but when they're really small - onesies are easy to carry, easier to wash, and easier to keep track of. And when they inevitably get destroyed b/c babies are disgusting you won't feel bad leaving it in the garbage can of the Target bathroom. Get socks. And I also like the footie and footless "body suit" onesies...also called creepers, sometimes? They're just an easy all in one piece of clothing.

  • Even if you're not sure about the specifics, a pack of pacifiers, a pack of bottles and a basic handheld breastpump. I know a lot of insurers started doing the bigger electric pumps, but it's a hassle if it's not something you're definitely using...and hard to pass on (creating waste) once you've used it. The manual is good for helping to pump the non-feeding breast, or just to relieve basic engorgement (this was my primary use for my last baby) or a single skipped feeding. It's also good for stimulating to help the milk come down if you're not sure if baby is triggering the letdown reflex.

  • Don't buy a ton of tiny newborn diapers. Sizes 2 & 3 tend to be the more common long-term use. So if you're going to stock up on a size - do the larger ones.

  • A basic carrier. Even for a newborn, this helps to be hands free. And it's pretty easy to use without help. You can find these used online or baby consignment shops if you don't want to pay full price. And if you decide you want a more expensive variety, you at least have an idea of what other features you'd wish you had or would be nice in a carrier if you have some experience with one.

  • Hold off on buying a stroller...they're not that easy to use, and if you aren't going to be walking long distances on smooth pavement, they aren't ideal. You can't really use them at the grocery store, they're too big for restaurants. The carrier ends up doing some of this work for you.

  • Thermometer, gas drops, diaper cream (like desitin), olive oil for skin care.

    Those are my go-to basics.
u/RhodaMorgenstern · 3 pointsr/clothdiaps

I was gifted a bunch of pocket diapers and all in ones from my registry when I had a shower, but when it came time to actually diaper a newborn, they looked HUGE and uncomfortable.

I also didn't start cloth diapering until baby was a month old. That was just for my sanity.

I ordered a bunch of wraps and used store-bought Gerber diapers with a Snappi fastener. It took a few tries to figure out what folds worked best when she was bigger, but for the first few weeks I just folded the diaper in thirds and put it in the wrap.

Once baby was bigger and ready for daycare, I switched to the all in ones and I haven't looked back.

I have 15 diapers total now that I cycle through and that works for us (3-4 diapers used a day, washing every 2-3 days). I also use disposables at night or when traveling.

u/[deleted] · 3 pointsr/clothdiaps

Hi! So I was in the same pickle as you, really wanted to do cloth but with the washer/dryer situation I was worried it would end up costing us even more. So I investigating the most effective way to hand wash. I use a mobile hand washer with prefold diapers. The AIOs will not work with my method for several reasons but I don't like AIOs anyways, namely because you have to wash both parts every single time you use them. Prefolds + cover, you can reuse the covers a few times before washing. Plus, prefolds are much cheaper, softer, and I think the sizing lasts longer. You can also fold them many different ways to find the best (read: cleanest) fit because every baby is different!

I have 27 prefolds and 7 covers, I believe. This is just enough so that I don't completely run out of diapers by the time the clean ones finish drying on the rack, if I'm leaving the washing til the last minute (usually like every 1.5 - 2 days, but it's better to wash them every day). It takes 10 minutes of plunging in a 5-gallon bucket and maybe another 5-10 minutes of wringing out with cold water. I find it to be kind of meditative and if you get into the plunging it is a good work out, too.

After I bought the plunger I realized I'd need a better detergent solution, too, because I need roughly a cap's worth of detergent each time I do this, which is at least 5 times/week, plus our regular laundry. This is another reason AIOs won't work. The laundry soap I made contains Borax, which will mess with the elasticity of the diapers (the prefold covers, too, but that's okay because I usually just wash those with a bar of laundry soap, Felsnaptha, soak in cold, and throw them in the dryer during our weekly/ twice weekly wash of clothes). Very very cheap to make, 20 cents/gallon.

Oh yeah, and I just throw the prefold diapers in the washer & dryer with the rest of the laundry whenever we do that, whether or not they're dirty (actually, if they're dirty, I still give them a quick wash/rinse anyway, I don't want them yucking up our clothes). They take up almost no room and it keeps them softer.

u/ambr87 · 3 pointsr/beyondthebump

We have loved any and all toys made by the company called Green toys because they are made from recycled materials and they are safe in the sense that there is no small parts, no chemicals in the plastic and if my son(s) chews on them I'm not worried. My Step-MIL actually introduced me to them and I am so glad they did. Amazon has a bunch just search "Green Toys". We have two of these blankets and I love them. They are the muslin cloth so keeps baby warm but not thick enough to overheat. Plus I love the fact that they are huge which makes them great to cover baby in the carseat or have a floor blanket. We used these when my oldest was an infant and using them again with my youngest. We primarily use them as burp clothes but we've also used them as wash clothes for cleaning hands and faces. I'm sure there many more uses for them--like turning them into cleaning rags when you no longer need them for baby purposes.

For toddler dishes we really like these The same company makes bowls and sippy cups and I believe utensils (for spoons and forks we use a set made by Oxo). They are durable, and made from recycled materials. They are dishwasher safe I believe (idk because we don't currently have a dishwasher). My son has been known to throw them on the floor and in the sink and they have yet to crack/break. Definitely worth the money in my opinion. Amazon carries them and some Target stores do.

u/Jen_Snow · 3 pointsr/BabyBumps

Those do look slightly too small for what you're going to need them for. You could just use them as general cleanup cloths though. You'd be amazed how often you'll need them around during those first few months.

We used these as our burp cloths/general cleaning cloths. I just kept a pile of them on the table with all my nursing stuff.

For disposable diapers, we use and like this brand:

We're on the third size up now, and have had pretty minimal blowouts. Really happy with them.

My wife was interested in doing cloth if it wasn't too much, but we don't have a washer which makes it harder. We use these for night time, and they work AMAZINGLY. Like kid goes through 1 or 2 the entire night (<3 months old) compared to like 4+ diaper changes. If we had our own washer/drier and didn't have to pay ~$4 a load, I'd probably say screw the single use diapers. Which I was not expecting honestly.

u/nothertheothergirl · 3 pointsr/Parenting

Others have already recommended the cloth diapering subreddit, but to add my experience we didn't really cloth diaper the first few weeks despite having the supplies on hand just because we were in survival mode and extra laundry was out of the question. Then we moved on to pocket diapers (which have covers and inserts - the inserts absorb the pee) with liners. The liners seemed silly at first but they make life easier without being as expensive and wasteful as a full on disposable diaper. So no, totally not dumb to switch over at this point.

Now we only occasionally cloth diaper on weekends - lately we've either been travelling or dealing with a yeasty diaper rash and I've heard that yeast in a pain to remove from a cloth diaper so disposables it is. Day care requires disposables and I've never had luck with cloth diapers overnight (I probably could if I tinkered with it more, but I'm just not that committed).

I did the math at one point and even assuming we had paid for all the cloth diaper supplies ourselves (which we didn't thanks to our registry) we would have broken even on costs just over my three month maternity leave, so every diaper now that's cloth instead of disposable is like free money, a little bit at a time. A year later and the diapers and inserts we bought are still going strong.

u/rhinegold · 3 pointsr/BabyBumps

I bought this one. I really wanted a backpack style so I could baby-wear in front with the bag on my back and have my arms totally free. My other criteria were stealth, volume, and lots of pockets. I really like this particular bag because it doesn't look like a diaper bag and has so many different compartments.

u/mythreebabies · 3 pointsr/BabyBumps

We bought this Jeep diaper backpack since we love the very accessible wipes holder. I highly recommend it. I've tried other bags listed here and I always come back to the style with a wipes holder like the Jeep one.

We just got this thing called a PooPoose ( that definitely helped to prevent our kid from doing cartwheels during changing. It's a bit pricey but was worth it in our opinion.

u/iheartdogs86 · 3 pointsr/clothdiaps

We use a Poopoose changing pad that has a big Velcro strap in the middle so she doesn’t roll off, so I bet that would be helpful in keeping him contained a bit

u/whenwillthewaitend · 3 pointsr/clothdiaps

I have a PPB Sashay Satchel and it's fine for quick trips but it wouldn't work super well for a longer outing unless you used disposables for those outings or kept some extra cloth diapers somewhere else (like in the car) so they weren't all in the diaper bag at the same time. Also as far as downsides go I do have a couple of things I wish it had like an insulated pouch for bottles and just more pockets in general on the inside of the bag. Smaller items tend to be very difficult to find. What I love about the PPB bag is that you don't look at it and think "oh that's a diaper bag." I feel like it's "nice enough," so to speak, to be something I could take with me as a purse for pretty much anything I'd need to go do. So, ya know, if I needed to take it with me to a wedding or something I'd be OK with that. I'd feel a little strange carrying around some of the other diaper bags I've looked at.

My husband has the Graco Gotham diaper backpack and it has more than enough room for a couple of diapers, change of clothes, wet bag, bottle, pacifier, wipes, changing pad, and whatever else. It has an insulated bottle pouch which is nice. It has so many pockets and such so it's really easy to keep it organized. Honestly if I were making a longer trip out with baby I'd prefer to have my husband's diaper bag over mine.

I know a lot of ladies on here just use a regular backpack so that's always an option also.

u/McToculus · 3 pointsr/BabyBumps

We have this one and we love it. It's cute but also manly ish so my husband has no problem wearing it. Plus I love that it's a backpack so it's hands free. And I get compliments on it ALL the time. Including many people who don't even realize it's a diaper bag and are surprised when they find out!

It's spacious, stands upright by itself, and stays open by itself as there's a frame in the opening.

Edit- also, it's made by a Japanese company (I believe?) and the box it comes in says "MAKE BEST BAG ENJOY HAPPY TIME" which is great for a chuckle.

u/sonofaresiii · 3 pointsr/NoStupidQuestions

It's all in the wrist, man. Flick your wrist to separate them.

One thing that will really help is getting a separate dispenser.

I have this thing and it does a pretty good job of only bringing them out one at a time, and the few times it pulls out two, like i said just flick the wrist and they'll fall apart from each other. You might end up with the extra one just sitting in the dispenser, but that's obviously not a big deal.

e: of course, this means you shouldn't get ones that come in their own dispenser. Get the boxes of them that have, like, wrapped bricks of them. Just tear the packaging off a brick and toss it in the bottom of the dispenser.

u/DarlingDestruction · 2 pointsr/BabyBumps

I was/am in the exact same boat - first kid, limited funds, starting from scratch, going through reviews and prices drove me insane. It took me probably three months to get my registry together, and, even then, I am still switching things up, lol. was invaluable while picking everything out. I highly recommend you check it out.

What we have bought ourselves that fit our tight budget:

Graco Comfy Cruiser Travel System. We had already decided to go with that car seat, given that it seems to be the top-rated budget option, and the stroller ended up being a much-needed bonus. We go on walks a lot, so it works for us. If you don't need the stroller, the seat itself is, I think, only ~$100.

The Pack N Play, which I've heard from literally everyone and their mother is almost a necessity.

Because we don't have an IKEA near us to get our hands on a swanky $99 crib, we bought this DaVinci crib. We still only ended up paying $100 for it, as we found it on sale, however, we would have paid the $200 for it, given that the reviews are good, and, when compared to some other cribs that cost $400 and up, the price isn't bad at all.

As for the rest of the registry, we have on there a Moby wrap (affordable baby wearing, yay!), nail clippers, outlet plugs, nursing pads, a wipes case, a baby tub, baby wash, assorted crib sheets, waterproof crib sheets, Pack N Play mattress, and sheets to go with, crib mattress (we actually bought this one when we found it on sale for $20, and it's just fine), receiving blankets, dirty diaper bags (because we aren't getting a diaper pail, just a small can with a seal-able lid), changing pad, and a cover to go with, pacifiers, Dr. Brown's Gia Nursing Pillow, a bottle brush, bottle warmer, thermometer, booger sucker, camera to monitor the baby, and a few other assorted things that I couldn't really find a definitive "best in class" for, so pick at your own discretion: diaper bag, swaddles (although I've read good things about the Summer Infant brand), bottles (we're going with Phillips Avent), a bouncer (we got this one), and a swing.

I agonized over this stuff for what felt like forever, lol, so I hope it helps you and saves you some hair-pulling. It's all so overwhelming!

Another vote for towels.

I actually use the pre-folds from our cloth diaper days (something like this

u/sunrisecolours · 2 pointsr/clothdiaps

We're like four days into this cloth diapering things and what we did was ask for a bunch of prefolds (I think we have two dozen of size 1 of these) and I bought some NB covers (6) off of Nicki's Diapers (there was a sale so I think I spent like $25 -- much cheaper than what was on Amazon). So, far, so good. We did use disposables for the first week because of meconium and having to use antibiotic cream on his penis. We also registered for a large (for home) and small (for the diaper bag) [wet bags] (, and a diaper sprayer. You could also ask for cloth wipes (we're not there yet). Also, we received a lot of newborn and size 1 diapers at our showers (we didn't ask for them), so we haven't had to buy anything diaper-wise. We used up most of the NB diapers but haven't touched the three bags of size 1s. It's nice to have the disposables for going places during the day while we're getting used to the cloth.

u/plexiglasshouse · 2 pointsr/clothdiaps

I have a simple system that works for me and 4 friends so far. You just wash baby’s laundry as usual. All clothes go into the washer and dryer - no lint, pilling, shrinking, special sprayer, etc.


u/bitterespresso · 2 pointsr/BabyBumps

Hooray! I love cloth diapers. So this is my opinion/advice:

Newborn (up to 10-12 lbs): Save money, go basic. Get like 30 prefolds newborn to small size, I liked bamboo because they were super soft and stretched a bit, but 100% cottons good too. Then 4 covers, my favorite is Mini Blueberry cover. Plus a few snappies. This will get you through the first 1-3 months depending on baby's birth size.

From there: I love Bumgenius. They work, they wash nicely, and my daughter likes them (she's 2 and actually tells me). I think 12-15 can get through a day or two of diapers, so that's laundry every day to day and a half. I love freetimes and would do the bulk of these diapers as those, plus 2-3 pocket diapers with some medium sized prefolds. The pockets are nice because when baby starts sleeping longer at night (still peeing a lot) the extra layers is necessary.

Other things: Cloth diaper friendly butt paste (I use CJs butter, fine for little dryness, if you have a bad rash on your hands, get serious with hardcore stuff and just use disposable diapers) a bajillion little wash cloths, and two bags to collect dirty diapers in (2 because one will be in the wash/dryer for 3 hours each day), plus a little waterproof bag with a zipper for when you're out of the house.

That's all I can think of - let me know if you have any specific questions!

u/rlkrn · 2 pointsr/clothdiaps

I currently have a 14 month old. & we have been using either of these for overnights since about 4 months old.

We use either the clotheez fitted workhorse diapers or the sustainablebabyish overnight diapers

Both with a cover of some kind (we love thristies or rumparooz covers). The workhorse diapers usually come with snaps. But we have a few without & just use snappi’s with them.

The work horse diapers work great for us. But if I know he has had extra water during the day or he nursed a ton he will absolutely get a sustainablebabyish diaper. They are a little more bulkier. The sustainablebabyish diapers also have multiple options as to stuffing with so you can add or take away bulk as needed.

Just for reference during the day we do pockets.

u/thatflyingsquirrel · 2 pointsr/TheGirlSurvivalGuide

Protip: Buy these cheap pampers sensitive wipes that come in a big bag and never have to buy those overly expensive wet wipes again. You'll never have to worry about conserving them because you're concerned you might run out before the next run to the store. Also, they stay together like cloth so no more foreign toilet paper particles getting in places it shouldn't.

u/StillNotMyName · 2 pointsr/BabyBumps

Assume that you'll go through 3 outfits/day in the newborn stage - up to 3 months or so. Figure out how often you are ok doing laundry, and that will help you figure out how many outfits you need. Sleep 'n plays are my personal favorite, but grab a bunch of onesies (short and long sleeve, assuming you're in the US) and a bunch of footed pants. Personally speaking, I HATE baby socks - they fall off too easily; footed pants solves that. Maybe a couple of rompers (one piece shorts/short sleeves) for extra hot days.

We never did newborn clothes - my kids were 7lbs 7oz and 6lbs 2oz. Consignment stores made it easy/budget friendly to grab a couple things in the next size up, so we'd have a couple things to get by while we purchased more.

For other things in the nursery (crib sheets, changing pad covers), 3 was our magic number. We figured one would be on the crib/pad, one would be in the laundry, and one would be clean in case kiddo barfed/pooped/peed on it.

For our August baby in New England, we also had four muslin blankets (47"x47") - that let us keep her covered, but not overheated.

Also, 15 or so cloth diapers worked best for us for burp cloths. A lot of the ones specifically marketed as burp cloths weren't very absorbent.

If you are having a boy, I'd recommend these for "air superiority," as my husband says. They work great for laying over baby's crotch during diaper changes and preventing "fountains."

u/callimo · 2 pointsr/AprilBumpers2018

Gerber Diaper Flats for Burp Cloths These are my absolute favorite burp cloths. They are thin, yet absorbent, so they're easy to pack in a diaper bag and they wash really well. They're super affordable too, like 14 for 10 I think?

Sophie the Giraffe Ugh. I have a love hate with this Giraffe. My son LOVED it, but we always lost it, therefore resulting in buying several of them. They are the most expensive, glorified chew toy, but they're easy for babies to get their mouths on.

Woombie If your baby is a swaddle baby, this thing is a life saver. You won't regret it. I like these the best because they have a zipper, no noisy velcro, no annoying snaps. I know you can find them Buy Buy Baby, Babies R Us, or Amazon. My FAVORITE swaddle! Once they have grown out of the wooombie or swaddle, I highly suggest the Zipadee Zip My son lived in this until about 13 months. I also never had to worry about blankets in his bed!

One last one.... Boon Silicon Teether Skip the mess of a mesh teether and buy this for your sanity. Super easy to clean and the perfect size. When my son was as little as 4 months and teething, we'd put a breast milk ice cube in this thing and he'd go to town. It's awesome.

Eco Friendly, Baby Edition! More suggestions are welcome!

I'm due this winter (being induced in December), and these cloth diapers would be really green and really helpful! My mom used cloth diapers with us, and though they're a little more work, they don't put THAT much extra laundry into the wash cycle, and they save on ALL that waste that's created by baby diapers! Crazy! We do not intend to do cloth 100% of the time, but they'll be nice when baby has already had a poo that day, and we expect no more poo, so they'll be there for pee only. (How predictable is a poo cycle on a baby? We'll figure it out!)

We also want to make most of our own baby food, from local produce from a farmer's market, which cuts down on gas used to bring us our food and all the glass bottles used to store food. Here is a plastic set of little food containers.

I'm also breast feeding, so here are some breast milk storage bags. THAT'S SUPER GREEN, and cheap, because I'm not using all that awful formula.

u/Snacky_Onassis · 2 pointsr/blogsnark

These are technically cloth diapers but we used them as burp rags and they're the BEST. So, so soft. And you pretty much can't have too many of them because as a new parent you're going through so much laundry.

My son is 4 and we still use them. I put one in his backpack and we use it to wipe runny noses at the park, clean up spills, emergency napkins, etc.

Also a Nose Frieda. Trust.

u/GustoB · 2 pointsr/NewParents

Diapers and wipes are always good -- newborn or preemie size probably. That said, some diapers just don't fit great on some kids, and some kids will have more sensitivity to certain wipes, so it's hard to say exactly which type/brand to get. "Water wipes" ( are a really good sensitive wipe. I wouldn't necessarily send her too many/any bigger diapers yet. They'll just take up room and might be a brand that doesn't work great. A box or two of the next size up is enough for now.

A good diaper cream will probably also be needed. I'd recommend something somewhat "natural" like, again to help reduce sensitivity hopefully. I would avoid petroleum jelly based ones.

Some type of burp cloths. However diaper cloths (I can't remember if that's what they are called) work great. I can't speak for this brand but something like this.. They are usually like a light linen/muslin, and usually fairly large square, and plain. They're easy to clean and big enough to fold over if part gets dirty, etc, and multi-use.

I would also avoid too many clothes. Some onesies with zippers is probably all that's really needed. Maybe also a nice soft hat as well, and some muslin swaddle wraps. Additionally, a warm, soft blanket or something to cover them when they go out. They're not supposed to wear anything bulky between the child and the carseat harness (ofc, they'll need a carseat if they don't already have one -- most hospitals won't release babies without one though, especially from the nicu).

Pacifiers are good too. Kids will probably find a certain kind they prefer, but I think this is basically what hospitals almost always use

They may also be recommended a vitamin like poly-vi-sol, or possibly other things, but this is hard to buy without being able to talk to her to find out exactly what is prescribed.

Similarly, bottles, nipples, and/or breastfeeding equipment, but this is hard to buy without knowing what she and the kid prefer. However, hand sanitizer for after diaper changes, and a nice bottle brush ( or are great to have.

Some type of food/meal delivery would be awesome. Possibly even a local housecleaning or laundry service too, depending on how independent she is.

And ultimately, money can help, as well as your phone number or contact info and an openness for contact and support.

There might be more that I can't think of. At this stage it's probably as important to get things to help her directly as for the baby. She may also have some medical needs depending on how the delivery went, and all that. Feel free to pm me too with any more questions etc.

Kimono-style shirts for while cord is still attached.
These are great as burp cloths and wiping up milk while feeding.

Muslin blankets are our favorite. I got a 4-pack of Aden & Anais blankets and we use them every day. They were good for swaddling early on. They don't take up a lot of space.

Scratch mitts! Your baby will scratch its face otherwise.

We barely used our bathtub. You could probably skip it for now and just sponge bathe your baby as needed. They don't get really dirty and frequent baths dries out their skin anyway. I sponge bathe once or twice a week.

A few pacifiers to try. Our kiddo likes the Dr. Browns.

Saline spray for when you use the Nose Frieda.

Cold mist humidifier if your air is dry.

Nursing pillow. Nipple ointment. Nursing tanks for you.

I just use a towel on the bed for diaper changes.

Subscribe to Enfamil and Similac and they'll send you formula sample containers, so you can just keep something on hand in case you need to or choose to supplement at some point.

DAPPLE! This cleans bottle parts a lot better than regular dish soap.

Yes - my mother used to say: “give me your hands.”
Now I’m an Esthetician and I get to tell other people to do that.

But yes, please, if you feel like you need to touch your face, try cleansing it instead! Get yourself some of the soft 3 ply baby diapers from Gerber on Amazon, wash your face and remove, gently with a lukewarm one of these as a washcloth. Your skin will feel much better!!

These "cloth diapers". Best burp cloths ever. Buy a million of them.

u/Wishyouamerry · 2 pointsr/Parenting

I just got them at Babies R Us? I could get, like, 10 of them for $9. That was 15 years ago, though, so maybe things are different now?

You can buy them online, though.

u/kdizzledeeee · 2 pointsr/BabyBumps

Since I just bought a bunch of stuff off of amazon for baby #2 today I can go over some things I found useful.

Bouncer: I didn't have one with my son, but wished I would have. I had bought two different types of fancy swings, and my son hated them (plus they are big and bulky). But a bouncer would have worked great because it is nice and portable, so things like showers would have been so much easier.

A Moby or a Mei Tai wrap: I loved these with my son. They were perfect for grocery shopping so I didn't have to lug around a giant car seat that takes up a whole shopping cart (PSA never put an infant carrier in the infant seat of a shopping cart). Plus it kept all the strangers grubby hands off my baby. It amazed me the amount of people who would just walk up and touch my sons face when he was in his car seat.

Lots of footie PJs: They are so much easier to deal with till they are about 3 months.

Night gowns for babies: Like these are awesome for nighttime. the bottom part is open so no need unbuttoning or unzipping and waking baby up even more.

Burp clothes (gerber cloth diapers): Like These. Don't waist your money on the cutesy burp clothes in stores. They are thin and horrible material. Plus they barely cover your shoulder. These are what the hospital used as burp cloths and they worked so great! They are super thick and huge (covers your whole shoulder). My son had bad acid reflux so there was a lot of spit up.

Receiving blankets I didn't use them for swaddling (my son hated to be swaddled) But they work great when used on top of a changing table cover, or on a couch/bed. They save you from having to wash the changing table cover a zillion times. And are a great to throw in the diaper bag for an outing to use on changing tables.

Boppy: I used my boppy so much! They are great for breastfeeding, but also for laying baby down for tummy time.

These were just some things that helped me. Hopefully some of it you find helpful =)

u/JacobmovingFwd · 2 pointsr/clothdiaps

I'd really strongly recommend the Ubbi Diaper Pail.

First, it's human smell-proof. We have our changing table in our bedroom, and never had a problem with it.

Second, that lid should definitely be dog proof. It even has the locking latch so the hatch won't open, but I'd expect a beagle to bee too short for that to be an issue. Between being able to lock the hatch, and maybe put some small weights in the bottom so they can't knock it over, it'll be safe.

Third, the pail just takes normal 13gal bags. We did disposables for newborn, and our normal kitchen bags did great. We have wet bags in it now, and they're still perfect.

The only, only thing I do, and I have no evidence I need to, is leave it open when there's no bag in it to air-dry out a bit. Diapers are exothermic, and it generates some humidity in there. It's a steel pail so I'd like to think I'm offsetting future rust. I'm at least letting nasty diaper humidity get out.

u/greeneyes826 · 2 pointsr/clothdiaps

I got a Bumkins one on amazon and husband installed it. He picked on me for shelling out $40 for it (dunno why its more expensive now on Amazon) but he uses it to clean diapers as much as I do. We have a solid eating 7 month old and a toddler. Toddler has the grossest poops so this thing has been the best.

This is just the one I have. There's a ton of others.

Bumkins Cloth Diaper Sprayer, Chrome

u/endlessunshine · 2 pointsr/clothdiaps

I use a diaper sprayer for the really messy ones (think peanut butter). Usually though, she makes a ploppable turd (sorry for the gross word, couldn't think of what else to call it lol) and I just turn it out into the toilet and flush. Then the diaper can go straight into the wash. Easy peasy! No liners, no fuss, no trash.

u/onebittercritter · 2 pointsr/beyondthebump

Do you not already have one of these cloth diaper sprayers? Hooks right up to your toilet tank so you can just spray to poop directly into the toilet and flush it.

We honestly bought Alva's through Amazon and they have held up better than most of our other diapers. We used pockets and the prints are pretty cute. Our son is now almost 2 and a half and he can still fit into them for night time and naps, though he started to toilet train himself about a month ago. Alva Diapers

u/RabidMuffins · 2 pointsr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon

It all depends on how many diapers you have. If you have 24 diapers, you will have to wash them about every two days to keep up with it. Otherwise, you will run out. The easiest diapers to use for those who have never cloth diapered before are Pocket style or All-in-one style. These are pocket style and this is exactly what I ordered. I will have 24 of them once this order arrives. If you just search Alva or LBB cloth diapers on Amazon, you can even find cheaper prices, but they can take a bit longer to arrive.

u/BarbarossaEsq · 2 pointsr/predaddit

I warned my dear wife well ahead of time that I would not be carrying a giant purse for this purpose.

She then turned up with a sweet Jeep (I love and own Jeeps) backpack with insulated pockets and even a gas-capped pocket for wipes.

It's not huge, but it fits everything we need and doesn't look odd when she's carrying it.

Under $50 on, here's the link.

Jeep Perfect Pockets Back Pack, Black

u/heartofcheese · 2 pointsr/Mommit

I highly recommend this backpack diaper bag. Oddly, it's made by JEEP.

It has a million pockets which makes small things easier to find. The wipes are on the side, easily accessible. And you can carry it on a plane, put it under the seat in front of you, and nothing falls out.

u/Trishlovesdolphins · 2 pointsr/Mommit

We just got one of these and I bought 2 covers so that I would always have one, even on laundry day. It goes on top of the dresser, but you have to have one of those shorter longer ones. You won't be able to reach it if it's on a tall dresser.

u/bananasmcgee · 2 pointsr/beyondthebump

We have this one from Graco and for the most part, I really like it. It's been with us to New York, Phoenix, and Hawaii, plus all over town and it's held up well. I don't see why it wouldn't last through at least two kids.


  • Wipe compartment: It is super convenient to have wipes always accessible on the side. I removed the case it comes with for wipes and just put in the pack of wipes directly. It can hold a whole pack of Costco size wipes!
  • Organization: There are lots of pockets inside for diapers, bibs, toys, whatever. I like having one of the zippered sections dedicated to diapering, one for change of clothes/blankets, and one for food pouches/snacks.
  • Insulated pocket: This is great for two bottles, or a bottle and a container of yogurt, or several bags of breastmilk + a small ice pack.

  • Size: It's slightly too large for a quick trip to the store, slightly too small for travel. When I run errands or go for a walk, it feels silly to bring a whole backpack when all I need is some diapers, wipes, and a snack or bottle. When we went to New York and Hawaii, I was able to fit all his stuff in, but it would have been nice to have space for my own stuff too so I didn't have to carry a purse.
u/Hahapants4u · 2 pointsr/beyondthebump

We switched from a diaper bag to a backpack. This was recommended to us and has worked out great! (Although it looks like this is no longer available there are comparable backpacks on amazon based on your style)

The easy access wipe holder has been great when I don’t want to put the bag down in a dirty restroom (can easily reach the side while it’s on my back).

It’s also just a backpack, so no complaints from my husband.

u/Mighty_Andraste · 2 pointsr/beyondthebump

I can put my spectra (S1) pump, parts/bottles, PackIt cooler bag, milk bags, Sharpie marker, several diapers, wipes, sanitizer, travel changing pad, extra outfit or two, couple of baby washcloths, plastic bags for dirty clothes just in case, and Advil into my Bag Nation bag - I’ve seen them on sale several times too, Amazon giveaways etc (got mine 40% off IIRC).

Honestly with a bit of thought I could add more things, but that’s all I really need - I only use the lined “bottle” pouch rarely for a water or something for example since I have a cooler for milk.

HaloVa Diaper Bag Multi-Function Waterproof Travel Backpack Nappy Bags for Baby Care, Large Capacity, Stylish and Durable, Gray

u/MlsRx · 2 pointsr/OctoberBumpers2017

I was given an adorable, stylish diaper bag that I registered for and my in-laws also gave my husband a dad diaper-backpack.... and the backpack is what we still use! It was Fisher Price brand, we've been really tough on it, but our son is now 28 months. My niece just is 16 months and they are still using the Columbia brand diaper-backpack from her shower. IMO a backpack is so much easier to lug around when you have an older and heavier child that wants to be carried and it is more "hands free" than carrying a shoulder bag. I'm looking into the backpacks that open up completely from the top like this one because our current one is starting to tear at the stitching. I would say it lived a full life though and it exceeded my expectations. And both the backpacks I mentioned are extremely neutral looking, they don't scream "This is for Dads only!!!!!".

Dafuq? As a parent, there's no excuse for this. Get one of these, put used diaper in a bag, and either find a trashcan to put it in or take it home to be thrown away. The little bag helps to keep the smell contained. I know kids can be a PITA and take up all your free time, but don't inconvenience others no matter what.

u/caffeinater · 1 pointr/Goruck

Lots of good advice here. I agree about the need for some type of pouch(es) to give some extra organization so everything doesn't become more of a jumbled mess at the bottom of the bag.

And make sure you carry one of these:

I have found of my prefolds, the GMD cloth-eez size Small (yellow edge) and size 1 Osocozy prefolds are a good length trifolded for stuffing pockets. I angel fold my prefolds with a snappi, but still keep some of these smaller ones out for stuffing pockets, at night I also put a GMD small cotton doubler in with it.

u/wheresmybump · 1 pointr/clothdiaps

Hi newbie!
Congrats on the new addition! First of all, let me try to put your mind at ease by telling you there is no right or way to cloth diaper.
That said, as most have already stated, you need to run a prerinse cycle on all types of diapers before the full wash. This is to get most of the pee and any residual poop bits out so that it isn't all swishing around in the main wash (i.e. keeping your diapers from getting clean). The good news is that the pre-rinse cycle is usually pretty short. My washer is in the basement too and it never bothers me to do two cycles (pre-rinse and full wash).
Everyone's answer for the BEST inserts is going to be different. It's really a matter of preference. If you want to to start out inexpensively you can just pick up some prefolds and either use them with a snappi or just fold them and lay them into the diaper.

u/BBEnterprises · 1 pointr/personalfinance

Dad nerd time!

The gist of it is you've got an outer diaper that keeps clothing dry, and then an insert inside to soak up all the waste. I would recommend getting mostly pre-fold inserts, several outer covers, and then some pocket diapers for overnight.

Outer Diaper

Most of the ones we use are a simple water-proof outer shell. There are buttons arrayed all over it that let you size it to your baby over time. This is the piece that (usually) holds everything in and keeps clothing dry. There's also little pockets you can stuff diapers into if you'd like.

Pre-Fold Inserts

We mostly use what are called Pre-Folds which are just little squares of absorbent cloth. You wrap them around baby and then clasp them together with a little rubber thing that grips the fabric.

We also have a few pre-folds that have become too small. Now we simply fold them up into long rectangles and insert them into our pocket diapers (more on that soon)

Fitted Inserts

Some inserts are 'fitted' which just means they have buttons all over them. You don't have to use a clasp or fold them at all, you just put them on and snap them in place. They're slightly easier to use than the pre-folds but not by much.

Pocket Diapers

These are pretty cool and very absorbent. The only draw-back to them is the cover is directly exposed to pee/poop so you can't use it over and over like with the others. They're basically a normal cover but they're soft on the inside and will be put directly on the baby. There's a pocket inside them where you insert an absorbent pad. They do a surprisingly good job of wicking all of the moisture to the insert and off of the baby's skin.

Pocket Hybrid Diapers

These are like normal pocket diapers but they come with an insert sewn in to the. You can throw these on the baby by themselves and they will work just fine. We like to put an extra insert inside them to make them even more absorbent and we use them for overnight diapers.

Renting Diapers

It surprised me that this was an option, but it turned out to be really effective for us when our baby was brand new. Newborns grow fast, and they'll get too big for your newborn diapers pretty quickly. Renting some newborn diapers initially helped a lot and it wasn't as gross as it sounded. The diaper company was very careful to clean the diapers and when we got them you couldn't tell they were used.

Wet Bags

Get two large wet bags for your house and several smaller ones to take out with you. You need two large ones for the house. When one becomes full and gets carted off to the laundry room you don't want to be stuck using your small wet-bags while the big one goes through the wash.

Cleaning the Diapers

This really isn't that bad if you've got your own washer and dryer. Our baby is breastfed so the poop was basically mustard. There's no solids in there at all; it just dissolves in the water. If you use formula things may be different for you, I'm honestly not sure how that affects baby stool. I can't imagine there's much solid poop at all either way.

  • Cold rinse, no soap - Gets rid of all the poop
  • Hot wash, with soap
  • Second cold rinse
  • Dry

    Your diapers should come with care instructions. We bought 'Charlie's Soap' which has worked out well for us. You might end up needing to get their whitener product if stains bother you.

    We do a load of diaper laundry every 2-3 days.

    That's the long and short of it I think. I really can't think of much of a reason to use disposable diapers beyond a lack of laundry facilities. If we didn't have a washer and dryer it would be way too cumbersome to keep up with. Cloth diapers are cheaper, more reliable, more absorbent, less wasteful, and not much more difficult to use. Don't be intimidated. Get some rentals for your first one or two months, get an idea of what you like and what your daily diaper process will be and then buy your own.
u/caterplillar · 1 pointr/BabyBumps

Yup! We have a clothes rack for drying inside (apartment) and it works really well. I’d probably recommend prefolds for your inserts, because you can clip them flat. I’ve found that the fancy ones that snap in tend to take a lot longer to dry at the edges, and you wind up having to dry them right-side out and then flip them inside out to finish them.


Fancy ones:

u/freckledcupcake · 1 pointr/clothdiaps

Flour Sack Towels x3 = $60

snappis x1 = $15

Dappi Plastic Pants x 3 = $15

For under $100, a full stash that will last you quite some time, washing every other day. You'll only need to replace the covers, which are sized. You can always get nicer covers the next time around, since you'll have the extra money you are saving from sposies.

u/grumpieroldman · 1 pointr/dataisbeautiful

We used cloth diapers and if you get the snappi things using cloth is easier than using pull-up disposables.
We'd still use some disposables when we went out here and there, but instead of using thousands of them we used dozens.

u/Chestypuller502 · 1 pointr/Showerthoughts

Well these ones surely don't. Andrex are pretty pricey too. Pampers are much cheaper. While "Andrex" wipes were not tested in that consumer reports test, their parent company Kleenex Cottonelle is. And they are the same product. All experts besides the companies that sell them say that they should not be flushed. Even plumbers who's jobs rely on clogged septic systems say that you should not flush them because they don't break down and they will ruin your sewer/septic.

I had a C-section. Here's my list of musts:

Nipple Cream:

Huge drinking cup so you don't have to get up so often:

Nursing Bras:

Extra Long phone charging cords:

Burp Cloths (which are useful for a million things, I bought 3 of the 10-packs and am so glad I did):

And my MIL got me this housecoat type thing made of sweatshirt material that was longer than knee length, zipped up, and had 2 massive pockets. I lived in the thing for like a month because I couldn't stand pants after my C-section. Plus it was warm and the pockets were really handy for carrying things (phone, water bottle, burp cloths, etc) while I was holding the baby.

u/Ocipura · 1 pointr/clothdiaps

We used flats on our LO for several (4?) weeks because the prefolds were so bulky. They're not expensive or hard to wash. Might be worth having some!

u/mathtestssuck · 1 pointr/SingleParents
u/twoturkeys · 1 pointr/Parenting

My daughter is 7.5 months.

These were hands down the best burp cloths and we had many different types.

She lived in gowns for the first month. They're the easiest outfits to change and the quickest during middle of the night diaper changes.

Halo swaddles were our favorite. They were easy to use, and the easiest ones to transition out of when the time came.

A sound machine. We have the Hatch. Babies are SO freaking loud at night. Her noises constantly woke me up. Then when she got older she started to sleep longer with it being on loud. The light on the Hatch is great for middle of the night diaper changes.

If you're formula feeding get a formula pitcher. It saves a lot of time and reduces the foam in bottles so it reduces gas.

Plus some other odds and ends. People will also buy stuff that they like, so you'll probably get stuff that was not on your list and that is ok. You can also request to have a "diapers n wipes" shower which a friend did since she was on her 4th child, and she probably got 2 months worth of diapers and wipes out of it if not more. Also, make sure you get multiple covers for your changing pad, it'll be nice to have more than 1 when it needs washing! Congratulations!

They say no bag required but use a regular trash bag or a grocery bag. I was going to buy plastic diapers disposable a bags to put the diaper in, and then stick them in here. Every 2 days I'd take the lid completely off and put scooped cat litter in there as well and then throw everything out. We have 2 litter boxes and only really need to scoop every other day.

u/CharPeiMama · 1 pointr/BabyBumps

So this is baby # 2 and we were all about the hand me downs this time around. Would’ve liked to paint but we rent and I didn’t feel like dealing with all that. We did have a baby sprinkle and scored some big ticket items like a double stroller, infant car seat, diapers, and swing. First time mamas, let me encourage you to buy secondhand. I could’ve saved literally over a $1,000 on my first born’s nursery had I been a little more open to used items. IMO, both nurseries are just as nice except this one was substantially cheaper to create.

Not easily seen from my poor quality video are Babar prints. If you can just look past the fact that it’s a story endorsing French imperialism, one can’t resist having an elephant nursery without Babar the elephant!

Top five items:

1.) Secondhand IKEA crib; my friend used this with all three of her kids. It is the Snigler crib. Super basic but super reliable.

2.) Dresser: secondhand, purchased on Facebook marketplace. Also has changing table topper but we omitted using that and just secured the changing pad to back of dresser.

3.) Elephant decals: Wall Pops WPK0841 WPK0841 Tag...

LUCKKYY Elephant Family Wall Decal Removable Vinyl Wall Art Elephant Bubbles Wall Stickers Baby Nursery Wall Decor (Grey)

4.) Hatch sound machine: we used this with our first (still do) and it was a sleep game changer. In my opinion, the best white noise machine on market. Also doubles as an ok to wake clock and is operable from your smart phone!

Hatch Baby Rest Sound Machine, Night Light and Time-to-Rise

5.) Ubbi diaper pail: we’ve tried several diaper pails over the years and this is the most smell proof and easy to use. It has a lock mechanism to prevent curious hands from digging through dirty diapers and can use regular garbage bags.

Get one of these, seriously. So useful, and cute. People like buying useful and cute:


I use this diaper pail and like it, it takes any garbage bags and I feel is better looking than some options out there:



Diapers, wipes, crib sheets, crib mattress pads, changing pad, changing pad cover (depending on the kind of changing pad, some do not require them). Bottles,swing/bouncer, playmat. One of my son's early favorite was a kick and play piano:



Bath supplies, lotions, diaper creme. I would avoid putting clothes on there. If there is something super special you love, just buy it (if you can afford to). People will pick out whatever clothes/toyus/blankets they want. Stroller, carseat. People often refrain from asking for these more expensive things, but I think its fine. If it is something you would buy yourself, it is okay to ask for it. And honestly, the expensive stuff went off my registry first.

I’m in 7 weeks of cloth diapering my 18 (almost 19) month old. We have pockets (Alva are my fave and fit the best in our stash) — it ranges from China Cheapies , Alvababy and Moma Koala (these are smaller than Alva’s on my 27lbs toddler).

I mostly have microfiber (can’t go against the skin) with only 24 bamboo inserts <I need more!!!>. I’ve recently discovered Flour Sack Towels; check Walmart for them. I’ve been folding them for a boy and then wrapping around a microfiber insert and we’ve been lasting about 3hrs before needing a change.

At night we use Happy Flute Hemp Fitteds with an Alva cover (I purchased Happy Flute covers but they didn’t work for us).

Get a few normal Alva pocket diapers and then don't put the insert in. Makes a perfect swim diaper and fits 10-35lbs! (Then when not swimming you can put baby in one with the insert)

Thank you this is very helpful! Here is what I have picked out so far. Could someone tell me if I am even on the right track with these?

Are these pockets or all in ones? or is that the same thing?

These I can use under a cover or as in insert for a pocket one, is that right?

If I got the two sets above and 6 different types of covers, would that be a good start for a newborn?

I would also need wipes, would I need the pins/fasteners for these types?

Jeep Perfect Pockets Backpack. Plenty of pockets. Side pocket for wipes, includes container too. Insulated pocket to store milk or food. Has 2 straps on top to hang on to stroller's handles, I love this feature.

I have this backpack diaper bag. I have two in diapers now and am due with baby #4 in March. I feel certain this bag is plenty roomy enough for everyone's diapers and wipes, change of clothes, cups, snacks, blankets, toiletries, and a few small toys and books. I've had several different types of diaper bags and this one is my favorite by far. I wouldn't call it trendy or pretty, but definitely functional with so many pockets

Maybe this .

u/bismuth92 · 1 pointr/beyondthebump

Until they get mobile, it really doesn't matter what you use. You don't need the straps and you don't need a purpose built cover, just throw an old towel on it. Once they start flipping and crawling away, this is the only thing that keeps my baby still. It's expensive but so worth it to eliminate the wrestling match that is change time.

u/that_looks_nifty · 1 pointr/BabyBumps

This is the one I got:

I haven't tried out with baby, but I LOVE how many pockets it has, plus it has an insulated bottle pocket on the side plus a baby wipe pocket so you can quickly grab a wipe for fast clean-ups. I really avoided the over-the-shoulder style since I hate them, and backpacks just seem more comfortable. It'll be like college again lol

Graco Gotham Smart Organizer System Back Pack Diaper Bag, Black/Grey

u/FaxCelestis · 1 pointr/AskParents

A Moby Wrap was indispensable for our kids. A Baby Björn or other baby-wearing apparatus also works, but those tend to get pretty expensive for the good ones that will last.

A heavy-duty diaper bag ([like this one](Graco Gotham Smart Organizer System Back Pack Diaper Bag, Black/Grey was equally indispensable. And you can fill it with necessities like baby lotion, thermometer, a couple teething toys, or some cloth wipes.

They're going to have way more than enough clothes and toys. Everyone gifts those or hands those down.

So we had an expensive over-the-shoulder/crossbody whatever you want to call it diaper bag. It was like $100+ - a gift from my mom as I'd have never spent that much on a diaper bag just because I dunno I'm cheap.

Had and used that bag for about 6 months. I loved all the compartments etc. And then the strap broke. The company eventually offered to send a replacement but said it would take 2-6 weeks. Started using a regular backpack in the interim and while I hated the lack of compartments I realized how much easier the backpack style was. Ended up buying a backpack one off Amazon for $50ish and haven't looked back since!

This is the one we bought - I remember it being $50 not 65 though. Bag Nation Diaper Bag Backpack with Stroller Straps, Changing Pad and Sundry Bag - Black

TL;DR - highly recommend the backpack kind, and strongly suggest buying one actually designed to be a diaper bag - especially if you ever need to take bottles anywhere with you! The insulated bottle holders are great.

u/Hamsicle11 · 1 pointr/beyondthebump

My husband and I both love this diaper bag! It fits so much into it, so many pockets, we got black so it wasn't too girly for husband to carry around, and it has stroller straps which makes carrying it around when out and about much easier! Highly recommend!

u/oilymagnolia · 1 pointr/BabyBumps

I purchased this one and am really happy with it. I haven't used it yet, but the size, compartments, and everything else seems to be nice and compatible. Plus, my husband can carry it without it looking like a purse.

u/HornlessUnicorn · 1 pointr/OctoberBumpers2017

I ended up with this one, mostly because the reviews were good and my husband really liked it. It need up being only $51 on prime day, but I really didn't want to spend more than $50 since I feel like I already have so many bags. Main selling points were slot for phone/wallet, external wipes holder, insulated bottle holders, and stroller straps.

u/lightningface · 1 pointr/OctoberBumpers2017

We got this one because it's pretty neutral but still cool looking. My husband is super into backpacks so I let him do most of the research.

u/JadedorTraded · 1 pointr/BabyBumps

Backpack! Preferably the kind that also has a sorta handle to it.


  1. I already feel too wide, I don't want to add an extra 8-10" to my side to knock over everything (and that's assuming I don't stuff it, which I totally will).

  2. Don't have to worry about the strap slipping off your shoulder while fussing with baby.

  3. Backpacks make it way easier to organize by priority since you put the stuff you only maybe might need every once in a while on the bottom and the "oh no I definitely need this now" stuff on top.

  4. Better coverage of your stuff, because strangers don't need to know what you're carrying.

  5. It's not obvious it's a diaper bag! I like this.

OXO Tot Perfect Pull Wipes Dispenser, Gray

This. Thing. Because you never just get one wipe at a time out of the packaging and it is FRUSTRATING. Lol

u/Bonkersville · 0 pointsr/barstoolsports

how much were they?

sub $11 for a 504 count of normal baby wipes (and what you bought are just big baby wipes). figure 4-5 babywipes equal that thing.

also the nice thing about using smaller/more baby wipes would be not sharing your entire body with one big dirty cloth, this is afterall not like a post shower towel...
Scent is subjective, if you mean they have an axe type smell... the more unabussive baby wipes win
