Cloth Diapering

In an effort to try and save money so that we can afford Rafi's new diet and therapy for Sensory Processing Disorder, I decided to switch my daughter Isabella to cloth diapers. 
I started using Kawaii Diapers because they were more affordable.  Since then, thanks to sales and free gift cards, I added some Fuzzibunz and BumGenius diapers to our collection.  I also use a Fuzzibunz hanging pail to keep the dirty diapers until I do laundry.  I wash them every two days or so.  So far, I have 8 Kawaii, 8 Fuzzibunz, and 4 BumGenius.  I think this should be enough so I can wash them every 2 days. 
I use Rockin Green detergent to wash them as you need a special detergent otherwise your diapers will start to repel rather than absorb.  I also use biodegradable flush-able diaper liners by Gro-Via.  These make cleaning soiled diapers super easy. 
For diaper rash, which now that she is on cloth diapers she rarely gets them, I use Gro-Via Magic Stick or Coconut Oil.  They are both safe for cloth diapers.  Other creams could damage or stain cloth diapers.
