Not exactly the question they ask at the grocery store, huh? Well that is the question that we asked ourselves recently. Cloth diapers of plastic disposables? Some of you will cringe when you read this, but we are going cloth. At least that is the plan!! I finally picked up some cloth diapers today. And by finally, I mean after realizing that there are so.many.choices.out.there. These aren’t the same white cloths with cute little safety pins your momma used.
I ended up finding a local momma who was destaching(paring down her diaper stash) and bought some very gently used cloth diapers for my little man. We are starting with AIO(all-in-ones), pocket diapers and fitteds for night-time. I chose several kinds in hopes to discover which we like the best. I have to tell ya, one of the diapers I purchased is absolutely adorable. I can’t wait to get it on his cute little bum.
From all I have read from other’s experience… have at least 12 diapers, wash every other day, use a wet bag while you are out (I guess a kroger bag will work till we decide if we are committing to this). Some people love it, some people have no use for it, and some people have never tried it. I sure hope we are in the ‘love it’ crowd!! If you add up what we have spent on diapers since Ashton was born, it’s creeping close to a grand. Yikes! And going cloth is kinda like going green… no more disposables filling up land fills from our house!
So..here we go.. this will be a new adventure!!!
Anyone out there using cloths? How do/did you like them? Share your experience!
