Who knew?

January 2013

I’m 4 months pregnant with my 3rd child. Cruising Facebook buy/sell/trade pages. I come across a lot of cloth diapers for what seems like a really good price. There was a bunch of different kinds all together. I didn’t know what they were but they spoke to me.

I had always thought that cloth diapering wasn’t for me:

  • All that laundry!!!
  • Ewwww, who wants to deal with POOP!
  • What if I spend all that money to find out they don’t WORK for me
  • Cloth diapers are for hippies (No offense to hippies, I actually have a lot more in common with them than I thought)

For some reason, right then and there I decided I was going to try to cloth diaper.

Once I picked up the diapers, I went right to work figuring out which kinds were there, how to wash them all, and which ones worked best for different things. I messaged one on my friends who I knew cloth diapered, and asked her to tell me where she got hers… She introduced me to several BST pages (Buy/sell/trade) and my life has not been the same since.

I have discovered a love for cloth diapering that I never thought was possible! I have since destashed and restashed my entire collection multiple times in effort to try everything!

Apparently I love doing my cloth diaper laundry, and it really isn’t all that bad.  I had to deal with poop just as much than I did with disposables. (Did you know that you’re supposed to dump the poop from disposables into the toilet as well? Because I didn’t).  Having a variety to try reduces the amount of “wasted” money.  I put it in quotes because I don’t find I actually waste the money.  One thing I did not know before was that you can actually SELL your diapers when you are finished with them!  Even if cloth diapers are for hippies, they can also be for pretty much anyone. There are so many different kinds out there to suit any need.  Last but not least, CLOTH DIAPERS ARE SO CUTE!

Who would not want these beauties on their babies bums?
