This post is written for the Real Diaper Week Carnival with the theme “Real Simple. Real Diapers.” We aim to educate and advocate the use of cloth diapers in the Philippines. Please scroll below to read the other carnival posts about cloth diaper styles, how to’s or must haves.
Every time I post a picture of Z on Facebook, I’d receive messages asking about his stuff. So, I might as well make a series of posts regarding the things we use 🙂
First up, Next9 Cloth Diapers. Even in the age of disposable everything, cloth diapers were on my things to buy list for the baby. I was scared of diaper rash and I knew the importance of “airing” out baby’s bottom. Bacteria thrives on moist areas, right?!
At childbirth class, I encountered a cloth diaper with velcro and I was wildly fascinated! Gone are the days of using scary safety pins and clips! But lo and behold, there was an even better innovation of the usual “lampin”; Next9 Cloth Diapers! I saw it in a stall in Shangri La Mall while scouring for baby stuff. I bought a pack of dark green ones with velcro. The pack contains 3 cloth diapers with inserts and costs P1,000. It promised the comfort of cloth diapers and the durability of disposables.
And it sure does deliver its promises! I’ve been using it since day 1 and have not experienced any mishaps with the pee’s and the poo’s. Although, I’ve to admit in using disposables during night time and when we go out, we’re now trying to use cloth diapers at night. Thanks to Jen Tan of Next9, she twitted me back, saying that we could just double the cotton inserts.
Currently, Z has 3 packs of cloth diapers: red, blue and denim. It’s a good thing that Next9 now utilizes buttons because the velcro ones wouldn’t close on my baby’s big thighs anymore. It is also easy to wash. Back in December when we had no help, I was the one hand-washing Z’s laundry. Even with poop, the diapers didn’t take a long time to be clean.
We love it because we get to save money and the environment. Z loves it because he is far from having diaper rash given that he has super sensitive skin. All in all, Next9 Cloth Diapers is one good baby buy!
