Before you get started you want to make sure that you have all of the supplies that you need.  Of course you are going to want to have the organic cloth diapers on hand, a changing table, plenty of baby wipes, changing pads, diaper pins, wraps or snaps, and specialized diaper rash ointments. While some people do still like to use diaper pins exclusively, more and more parents are using diaper wraps to help keep their baby’s diaper secure.
