There are so many accessories for cloth diapering, but only a few necessaries.
|Blissful Booty Starter Pack|
- The baby
- Wetbag/ pail liner
That's it, those are the basics. This kit here from Blissful Booty can give you a great start. It includes 4 AIO (All In One) diapers, 1 zippered hanging wetbag, 10 pack of two sided wipes, wipe water concentrate and spray bottle, and a pail liner.
Depending on the age of your baby, and time you want in diapers (full time, part time, day time, etc) will vary the amount of diapers you will need to be successful. This kit, which retails for $120.00 is enough to get a good part time start for an older baby to toddler who on average will only go through 5-7 diapers a day, to include overnight. How awesome is that!

I had the pleasure of testing this kit from Blissful Booty and had such a hard time deciding which item was my favorite! So we will start from the top :)
1. The baby:
|Madison, 21 months, 28 lbs|
wearing a medium.
|Abby, 5 months 14 lbs|
wearing a small.
These diapers are True AIO's. There is no pocket, no stuffing, no drama, put it on, take it off, wash and repeat.
Now, I will admit, I am a pessimist when it comes to hype, and I scoffed at the mere thought of people rubbing the diapers on their face due to the softness, but, I did it too. They are BUTTER soft! (Yes, even after washing!) They had the internal gussets to maintain Abby's EBF poo, and Maddi's teething poo, and even better, sprayed off easily before the teething issues got here! They wash super well, wear great, and dry fast! I have no idea what magic spell they put on these things when they make them, but it worked! As you can see, there is plenty of room for them to both grow into the diapers, and plenty of room for them to be smaller in them with the crossover tabs. I wish all diapers had these! They have recently introduced snaps (with crossover snaps) to their line-up for those of you who prefer snaps, all though, the aplix they have used has not created diaper chains in my laundry, filled with lint, or fuzzed up over the time that I have used them, and that use has been heavy! These diapers are SUPER trim as well! Just check out the plumber shot!

some of her other fluff, but these
diapers work well with them!
3. The wipes:
If you are going to cloth diaper, go the cloth wipe route as well. Your baby's bum will thank you, as well as your washer for not missing the disposables that shred in the laundry when you miss one, and you will! These cotton/ terry double layer wipes are perfect! Thick enough to clean the messiest messes with 1, but gentle enough to clean faces after a rough day of modeling. The wipe water concentrate they sent, delicious! Smells wonderful without being overpowering, and non-greasy! I used water previous to this, as most of the other solutions were either too soapy, greasy, or obnoxiously over powering smelly. This concentrate is none of those.
4. The wetbag:
If you are going out, your little one is not (most of the time) going to wait until you get home to soil the diaper. You need a wetbag to take the diaper home in, or for the daycare to place them in. I had a hard time picking which pattern of wetbag I liked most, but the monkey one stole my heart! My favorite feature of the bag (besides the cute pattern) is the handle. It can be used as either a hanging wetbag, or snap onto a stroller, outside of your diaper bag, or grab bar in the van/ car. Little details like this get me so excited! I think that is why the wetbag is my favorite item I received! It washes well, and can hold at least 4-5 soiled diapers with wipes while still being able to close easily.
5. The detergent:
My previous blog on washing covers this, but to recap Rockin' Green is recommended by myself and sold by Blissful Booty :)
