Have I told you yet that I want to change to cloth diapers? I know, most of you are thinking why in the world would you want to do that. Then there may be a select few that think good for you, go for it, just don't ask me to watch you kid. I wonder how many of you are thinking that's all we did back in the day and my kids survived (I was one of those children)
Why haven't I made the switch? That's a very good question. Mainly because it's a big upfront cost and I want to know what I'm getting, so I've been researching. At first I was thinking prefolds, pins, covers, the whole 9 yards. They seemed to be the cheapest and that was one of the reasons for the switch. Then reality hit. If I was going to use cloth diapers I wanted it to be as easy as possible. I wanted to know that Jericho's diaper would get changed if her daddy was home alone with her. If we were using prefolds I'm not so sure that would happen. So, I stared looking into Fuzzi Bunz and bum genius. No pins, no diaper covers, all in one cloth diapers with snaps or velcro now that is my kind of cloth diaper! Seth even said that he could & would change cloth diapers like that! I just wonder what he'd do with a poopy one when he was done changing her : )
We have been looking into (I've been looking into and telling Seth what I find) and saving money for cloth diapers for awhile now so I was so excited when I saw that baby cheapskate is giving away 12 bum genius cloth diapers to one lucky mommy. I even joined twitter so I could get an extra entry in! I'll let ya know if I win!
So tell me have you ever used cloth diapers? If so what kind? Did it work for you? Would you ever switch to cloth after using disposables?
