It's Just Sad . . .

How excited I get about cloth diapers.

So . . . I did it. I purchased them. After many an hour spent drooling over them online, and trying to convince hubby that we should cloth diaper, I prayed about it.

{That's right, God cares about diapering dilemmas too. }

And guess what, the next day I received a check in the mail. A check we weren't expecting. A check that totaled almost exactly the dollar amount I had planned to spend on cloth diapers. I took it as a sign, and I ordered.

Kameryn's little bum has spent the last 4 days in cloth diapers. I was going to post about them earlier, but honestly? I was afraid to. After weeks of trying to convince my husband that we should fork out the money for them, I was afraid I'd use them and maybe I wouldn't love them. It's been known to happen. I just have to have something, only to find out that I don't use it like I should, or maybe I (gasp) don't love it. But good news, people, I am in LOVE!

For inquiring minds out there, I purchased from Cotton Babies.

I started with 12 Indian Pre-folds.

I thought these might be difficult to use, but they are super easy! I use a snappi with them, so no pins, yay!

I also bought 3 Bum Genius One Size AIO diapers

6 Bum Genius Bamboo Fitted Diapers

4 Bummis Super Whisper Wraps

2 Thirsties Covers

My favorites? I love, love, love, the bamboo fitted diapers. Last night I put Kam in a bamboo fitted diaper (no doubler or anything), she went all night without a change, and she didn't leak at all. In fact, we haven't had one leak since we started. As for covers, I couldn't be happier with the Thirsties wraps. The Bummis are nice too, but I just love the Thirsties.

So there you have it. If you are considering cloth diapering but are afraid you don't have the time, or that it's difficult, or even costly. Don't fear. Try it. I just know you'll love it!

We love cloth too! And once she's really moving, pins really aren't bad since they stay put. We're using a snappi and a prefold today too :)

Your 'fluff' is awesomely cute

Isn't it great how God cares about the littlest things.

I'm just starting to use cloth too. I have some fuzzibunz, some shinies and some bum genius diapers on the way. I'm mostly using them for my toddler right now to help her potty train and then I'll use them for my youngest. I haven't had to deal with any poop yet which is nice but I'm sure it's coming.

How does your husband feel now?

that's awesome. I'll have to look at those websites to see about training pants for seems like due to pull-ups you can't find rubber pants anymore.

Very cool! Perhaps our next one will be a cloth diaper wearing bambino...

Liz, I am loving those cloth diapers as well. She looks so cute in them. They are nothing like what I used clear back in the 60's. My gosh, how they have evolved!! Good for you, girl!

We used Fuzzi Bunz, too and loved them. There are so many more choices now than even just a few years ago. Bamboo? I want some. Well, maybe I can wait until I'm 70. :)
