I never thought I’d be a cloth diapering mama until I met my friend, Sabrina. Her children were all cloth diapered and potty trained early. I saw how convenient it was for her and was intrigued.
So, I did the math. Buying one set of diapers for life versus buying a pack of diapers a week sounded ideal to me. I also love reusing instead of tossing – less waste. I have an HE washer, so why not? I was brought up on cloth. How hard could it be?
I also did my research. This youtube video made by Mommy and G TV really helped in making our decision: Cloth Diapering Tips: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gfedrgWpcFA.
We went for it and couldn’t be more pleased.
So, baby girl just recently came down with a stomach bug. Which meant constantly changing diapers. For cloth diapers, that means constantly washing as well. Since I line dry my diapers, I couldn’t keep up. So we bought a pack of disposables to get thru this bout of sickness.
How is it that we haven’t spent any money on diapers til now, you ask? Well, when it came time to build my stash of diapers, because this was our third child and we’ve saved a lot of baby goodies to pass on, we weren’t in need of much. So, instead of a “baby shower” we had a “diaper shower”. Complete with mini cakes, croissandwiches, fresh homemade vegan popsicles, and much much more.
Now, these are not your mama’s cloth diapers. New school cloth diapers are soooo adorable! They come in all sorts of designs and colors. You get to pair them in the summer with matching tops. And they’re much more breathable and safe for your baby’s bottom.
