I also hang my wet diapers in the sun to get the stains out and it works. Every few washes though I'll add a bit of oxyclean to the load of inserts only, after I take the covers out to hang. I don't have staining problems with my prefolds though, just the pockets.

Does anybody do cloth at day care?

I've been using Bum Genius 3.0 since my son was a month old and now he's 9 months. They're a one size fits all and are supposed to go up to 35 lbs, but my son is 22 lbs now, and I can't see them fitting up to 35 lbs! I think they're going to get to be too small and I'll have to use disposables once he gains a few more pounds. Do any of you ladies use the same kind on your bigger children? Do they really fit up to 35 lbs? Other than this concern, I love using cloth and have had no issues :)

Oops, I meant that my daughter initiated potty training at about 22 months, wanted to set that straight.

Hi Cherylyn, I used oxobrite and it worked great for poop stains. Also, I think the wash cycle you use makes a difference. I followed the Green Mountain Diaper Company's instructions and had a great experience with my third child's diapering. Such a great experience that when she initiated potty training, on her own at 18 months, I was solemn for a bit. They say cold wash w/ detergent, then hot wash w/ detergent and whitener if desired, then 3 total rinses (or extra rinse, plus one more rinse). I liked line drying them on sunny days, I do miss it, but panty buns are cute, too!

Hello Cherylyn, I have the stain problem to, what I do is hang them out in the sun to dry it works good also helps with smell if you ever have that problem. Hope that helps you.

My only problem with cloth diapers is that my daughter completely soaks through them at night (starting at about 5 months old). I got tired of changing her in the middle of the night so I put her in a non bleached paper diaper or a g-diaper for bedtime only.

There are non chlorine bleaches out there (sold at Whole Foods) that get stains out of our cloth diapers and covers, no probem. I do have a "sanitary" cycle on our machine so maybe that helps but the bleach seems to do the trick.

I've been using cloth diapers for about a week now, and so far I love it. I'm using prefolds and covers, and I need help with one thing. Some of the prefolds have poop stains on them and I'm not sure how to get them out. The washing instructions I have say not to use chlorine bleach. What do you all suggest?
