Cloth Diapering 101 Video Tutorial

There is a series of 6 videos on cloth diapering that I’ve watched over and over! They are so helpful and really explain everything you would possibly want/need to know about cloth diapering. I’m sure I will watch them several more times before Turner’s born but thought I’d get them on one page so they’re quick and easy to find! I am planning on getting a few of each kind to see what works with Turner. Below the videos I put my plan for cloth diapers with links to each. It pretty much wraps up these videos and puts it onto paper. That helps with us visual learners!
