Cloth Diapering 101 Video Series: Sized or One Size Cloth Diapers?

Welcome to Episode 2 of our Cloth Diapering 101 Video Series! Today we are going to talk about Sized Cloth Diapers versus One Size Cloth Diapers.

In the video I mentioned the main pros and cons of each, however there are a few more things to consider:

  • A sized diaper stash will likely give you a higher resell value or diaper life, especially in the early sizes. The smaller sizes don’t get as much use. For example in the video did you notice how “new” the yellow newborn and red small sized diapers look compared to how worn the medium looked? A longer diaper life means they are more likely to last through years of diapering several different children. Case in point: That roughed-up looking medium has been used for FIVE years on FOUR different bottoms!
  • Unless you have a large rotation (meaning several diapers in your stash) one size diapers can wear out faster and may not last through as many children.
  • If you have more than one child in cloth diapers at the same time (ie-newborn and toddler) you might appreciate having sized diapers: A stash for baby and a stash for toddler. If you try to share a stash of one size diapers between two kids, you are either doing laundry constantly or have a HUGE rotation in which case you will likely not experience the cost benefit of one size diapers. 🙂

What do you have in your stash? Sized diapers or one size diapers? Do you have a preference of one over the other? Would love to hear from YOU!
