I always recommend Cloth Diaper Trial Programs to anyone interested in cloth, looking to add to their stash for baby’s changing needs, hoping to get a spouse, babysitter, or daycare provider on board, or wanting to help a friend experience cloth. For a minimal investment, you can try, wash, and use cloth diapers, as well as accessories. Some retailers offer a rental experience, while others offer a limited time warranty. You can read about the cloth diaper trials that started my foray into cloth diapers here.
