I am participating in a Cloth Diaper Carnival Hosted by Dirty Diaper Laundry. Her blog is a awesome resource for anyone who is looking about information on Cloth Diapering. The topic is who got you started on your Cloth Diaper Journey?
Cloth Diapers have been around forever, but I never Cloth Diapered my 1st son Monkey boy. He is 5 now. My Girlfriend Melissa did not Cloth diaper her 1st son either her son is 5 now too. Melissa did however have baby #2 before my baby #2 and she decided to cloth Diaper her Little girl. Having this awesome friend show me all her adorable cloth diapers I was curious about them. I had only heard of the Cloth Diapers our parents used and all the horror stories that go with them. The dunking of poop,the wet pail method. Uggg ! Who would want to do that? When Melissa showed me how easy it was to Cloth Diaper her daughter. I wanted to Cloth diaper my baby. She gave me 3 Bum Genius Pocket Diapers as a welcome gift for little worm. What a great gift. Well Lil Worm was born 4 weeks early and I was so preoccupied with his premature birth that I just brought him home in a disposable and used the ones the Hospital gave me. He was 5 lbs 15 oz at his lowest weight and the Bum Genius were swimming on him. One day when I was standing at Babies R Us getting ready to fork over 40 bucks for a big box of Diapers that you just throw away I remembered the Cloth Diapers my friend bought me. I did buy that big box of Diapers, but went online and ordered 3 more Bum Genius. I knew I needed at least 6 in order to give it a good try. When my three Diapers came in I prepped them and then the next day I gave it a try. I remember calling my Husband and work and saying I cloth diapered our son all day. He replied "Daddy doesn't do Cloth" . When he got home I showed him how easy they were and told him how much money we will save and he was on board too. So Thanks to one Dear Friend showing me the Modern way to Cloth Diaper I am saving the Earth and I now an Obsessed with Looking up Cloth Diaper brands and Purchasing some of them.
