Before I started cloth diapering my boys I had a very negative view of cloth diapers. I pictured the “old-timey” diapers with pins. However, after doing some research, I learned how easy cloth diapering could be. I began when my older son, Carter was a little over a year old, and my younger son, Evan was 5 months old. I decided pocket diapers were the best fit for our family, so I started out with Bumgenuis pocket diapers. I used those for a while with great success.
However, once my little one started putting on a little chub around his belly, I had difficulty keeping the velcro tabs attatched. I then began using Fuzzi Bunz and have been with those ever since. I have built up a decent size stash, so I do laundry every two days or so. I am expecting our third baby, and will cloth diaper them as well. All in all, with these three children, we will have saved thousands of dollars on diapering and we also have the satisfaction of knowing we are not filling up landfills as well.
