Not your Grandma's cloth diapers: Cloth Diapering today

 made their debut so why the sudden influx of fluffy bottoms?

Then the packages started to arrive, these reusable diapers where not what I had heard my grandmother reminisce about 

Flash forward to three babies later, 2016, 10 months into cloth diapers. Cloth Diapers have become or are becoming pretty mainstream, it's not totally absurd to see posts all over the internet about the fluff madness, you likely won't be able to make it through your news-feed without see the mention of fluff mail or seeing a tiny bum in a cloth diaper. You will still see your kitchen towel diapers, the correct terms for these are pre-folds & no they are not like hand towels like I initially thought when the G-Ma talked about the good ol days, they are actually what I used for baby spit up & burping time when my first was born. However even the way of using these have changed, you no longer have the only option of using a giant safety pin, you now have snappis which help keep the folded diaper in place, & the biggest change are the covers you use to keep your baby from soaking you when they let it all go in their pre-fold. 
If you want to keep it kind of old school thats totally cool but low & behold there's the diaper Grams wish she had,diapers that snap! Now there are three different complete diapers that snap on, your AIO, your pockets & your snap on covers. These are where you will hear most of the talk about how cute cloth diapering is, & how easy it can be. AIO or All In One diapers are just how they sound, one complete diaper that once the deed it done you rinse it out & put in your diaper pail until wash day. Pockets are similar & I will tell you I haven't really figured out how these are different from AIO diapers but I will say they have less padding so you stick your inserts in the "pocket" of the diaper. Covers on the other hand are reusable for as many changes as you are comfortable with or until the deed is too big & there is no using it again until wash day, all you have to do is change out the insert or prefold. 

Even the way you store your diapers have changed! You know how amazing diaper pail bags & wet bags galore that give you a clean & stink-less way to store your babies less than clean cloth diapers until you are ready to do a load of diaper laundry.
