We aren't always able to be with our babies. Even if you are a stay-at-home mom sometimes you have to go places and leave your baby with someone else. Other people take care of our babies at times and that means they have to change their diaper. But let's face it, not everyone is excited and informed about cloth diapers. Some people even think it's gross! So when you have to have someone else take care of your baby, what are the best cloth diapers for them to try? 

I have compiled a small list of what diapers I think are good for skeptical caretakers to try. Whether it's daddy, a grandparent, a daycare worker, or just an occasional babysitter, these cloth diapers are pretty fool proof and will be easy for your caretaker to use! 

Thirsties Duo All-In-One

Thirsties Duo AIOs are extremely simple to use. They come in aplix or snaps so if you need really simple aplix is the way to go. There's no inserts to stuff, no pockets to worry about, and nothing to fold. The diapers goes on exactly like a disposable would. It's pretty much foolproof. Plus they are made of a PUL outer layer and a microfiber terry inner layer so they are super absorbent. 

These are a new favorite among some cloth diapering parents. I have one and I really like it and I think it would be very simple for a skeptical care taker to use. It is a little bit different than a typical AIO because it has two inserts that are attached. They overlap each other very easily and then the diaper goes right on baby. These also come in aplix so will go on very similar to a disposable diaper. They are also super absorbent and work great for naps and play time both! 

A lot of my fellow cloth diapering parents might not think this would be a simple diapering system for skeptical caretakers but I think it's definitely simple enough if you do it the easy way. When I used prefolds and covers I could never the snappis or pins right and it would either be too loose or just not fit him right. So I would just lay the prefold  into the cover and then wrap the cover on him. I could even fold it down so that it was extra absorbent in the front. It was super easy and worked well for us. I think it would be easy for a caretaker to use. You could even lay the prefolds inside the covers before you left so all they would have to do is wrap the diaper and cover around baby! Plus this option is probably one of the cheaper options if your on a tight budget! 

Did you have skeptical caretakers who don't want to use cloth diapers? How did you convince them to try? What diapers did you give them to use? 


  1. Totally agree with you! We don't go to daycare but my husband prefers our Thirsties Duo AIO's. They're so easy to use anyone can do it. Great post!

  2. Still working on the skeptical grandparents! But we try to give them Thirsties AIO or even aplix pockets that are all ready to go, just in case ;)

  3. I just got my first Thirsties and LOVE the fit. I can't wait to get more. My hubby had an easy time putting it on too :)

  4. I used cloth diapers when my kids were little and they were easy as pie even back then. Great post!! Love to see what's new out there.

  5. I agree with you about the Freetime. My husband and MIL LOVE that diaper.

    I would not have put prefolds on the list, but you make a good point about just being able to lay the prefold in the cover. The other nice thing about prefolds is that they make nice burp rags.

  6. I'm glad to hear that the Freetimes are as great as they sound. Haven't heard much about Thirsties AIO as opposed to just their covers. Thanks for the info!
