Thinking about Cloth Diapers!
I do want to do all I can to help the environment. And the thought of a year’s worth of dirty diapers thrown in the landfill just makes me shivers.
But before you cringe, let me just say that cloth diapers today are NOTHING like they were when I was a kid! When I was a kid, they were more like a towel wrapped around my bottom. Today’s cloth diapers are quite functional, easy to use, and dare I say, really fashionable!
Natali recommended a brand called Charlie Banana. After reading the instruction for cloth diaper care, I don’t find them that bad! Sure it’ll require a little more work and planning, but it’ll definitely save money and the planet in the long run.
I told my husband about this and he wasn’t quite thrilled at the idea. lol But I’m hoping he’ll come around. I’m thinking about purchasing 1 or 2 as testers to see how they work for us. Plus, the cloth diaper’s 2-in-1 system also allows disposable inserts, so we can do some hybrid diapering if we wanted to. We’ll see when the baby gets here. heh
Charlie Banana diapers are available at Target and Babies R Us, so they’ll be easy to find.
