22.If I could only have one diaper make up my entire stash,

It would be Fleece Diaper ( It can be consider waterproof yet breathable)

23.How do you store your diapers?

Modular drawers.



(Attention for mamas out there, you don't need this much of cloth diapers.
Some people likes to collect designer shoes, bags, dresses and so on, for me I love to collect all sort diapers design!!:)We only need 18 to 20 pieces of cloth diapers in order for them to be use enough for 2 days rotation and a few extra. But one can never have enough for rainy days :-p )

24.How did you convince day care to cloth diaper?

I am a stay at home mother therefore I don't have to convince anyone.

25.Best pail liners?

I only use these....



26. How do you keep your pail fresh?

By using charcoal.(It absorb the smell away leaving only natural fresh scent)

27.Best wool wash?

Lanacare is the best I try so far..



                                                            2 in 1, Lanolin and Wool Wash.

28.How do you stop night time leaks?

I only used fitted with wool for night time diaper and so far I haven't encounter any leak except when it's time for the wool need to be lanolize.

29. Single piece of advice for a new mom?

It's true……. by using cloth diaper you need to wash it everytime, need to remove the stinky poop out from the diaper.

As for me I don't see any of the above will stop me from cloth diapering my kid because its simply :
a. Environmentally friendly (chemical free).
b.Economical .
c.It just feels natural:).
