When I was pregnant there was not even the slightest thought of using cloth diapers. Now 8 months into the life of my gorgeous daughter, I am a full speed ahead cloth-diapering momma! Wow, how quickly things can change.
It all began because no disposable diaper could contain my daughter’s bowel movements. After switching diapers many times I began looking into cloth diapers. After a lot of research and some convincing of my husband, I dove head first into the cloth-diapering world.
I started with the good-old-fashioned pre-folds with covers and soon bought some pockets, which began my addiction! If I have a free moment I am searching online to find a good sale. Or, if I happen to be in the area of my favorite baby boutique in town, I will make a quick stop, “just to look”, which always ends up with me leaving with a bag of new diapers!
I have learned so much about what I like, and what I could live without. My addiction has led me to try so many different brands and options. I have decided snaps work better than the Aplix for us and at the moment, I am looking to find a good WAHM snap pocket diaper. I really want to start using more organic material, oh-so-soft bamboo! I have a few bamboo pockets and I absolutely love them! Who knows when my next purchase will be, maybe when I finish this post!
I am sure my husband wonders why there is constantly a delivery of new diapers on our doorstep, but he doesn’t question anymore, he just laughs. If cloth diapers weren’t so cute, I wouldn’t have this problem!-- By Alexis B.
