Getting started with cloth diapers doesn’t have to be difficult. You just need a few very important items, in addition to cloth diapers of course.
I recommend you get a flip top trash can for a pail, pail liner and a couple of plastic baskets for storage. I purchased my Sterilite pail from Walmart for less than $10.
My pail liner is a camping bag from Walmart but it is not waterproof. It works fine for me but if you desire a dry pail you should purchase a pail liner from Leslie’s Boutique. On the Diaperswappers forum Leslie gets raves daily for her superb craftsmanship and high performance of her wetbags and pail liners. I have a wetbag from her so I know it is top-notch.
The plastic baskets/bins I use are from the Dollar General. They are so not fancy and don’t even hold all my diapers/inserts/covers/wipes. But they create a “diaper zone” for me and that is better than the pile-in-every-room I did have!
Many moms use an old dresser or cute bins in their changing table. Whatever you choose it doesn’t have to cost much or be extravagant. Keeping it simple and organized is the important point.
