If you had asked me about cloth diapering 3 or 4 years ago, I would have told you no way! How gross! What changed for me? The amount of people I have personally seen cloth diaper. I think I now know 25 people who cloth diaper. I know thats quite a few and not most peoples normal, but for some reason it is pretty popular with my friends. Anyways, once I started seeing it for myself and reading up on it I knew I wanted to cloth diaper when I had a kid. And now, Lord willing, that time has come!
So recently a friend brought me a bag full of cloth diapers. Yay! I was so excited to have some of my own!! And even better, she brought me a newborn stash to borrow! We will be going with one size pocket diapers, which means they are 1 diaper that adjust in size up until your child potty trains generally. The only problem is you have to wait a little while before your baby is big enough to start wearing those. So it was looking like we probably wouldnt start cloth diapering until I was back at work already, and that kinda bummed me out. I would much rather have some time to try it out and get the hang of it before adding work to the mix.
So here are the goodies she brought me:
The whole stash (minus a bunch more pre-folds)
Six "fitted newborns"
A bunch of prefolds
This cute newborn cover
And all of these covers (several Thirsties x-small, 2 small)
2 medium Fuzzibunz
2 Happy Heiny's
This is a Once Size Pocket Diaper. Notice those snaps? They make the diaper shorter or taller.
The inside of the pocket diaper
And for fun, I wanted to see how many of these I could fit into the diaper bag we bought the other day...
The asnwer: 12 stuffed diapers/fitteds, 5 covers and some prefolds.
I know thats a lot of cloth diaper talk, but I am so excited about it. Sometime soon I will do a post on why I am choosing cloth personally and some explantation for those of you who have no clue about any of this.
For now I am curious, what are your thoughts on cloth diapering??
