My sister-in-law recently had her first baby. After listening to her sister and her three sister-in-laws rant and rave over the wonderful pro's of using cloth she decided to register for some through Kelly's Closet's gift registry.
Even though not many of the other ladies purchased cloth diapers for her she knew her sisters would not leave her hanging. With all of us combined she received six Bum Genius OS 3.0 diapers in a variety of adorable colors, a dozen Indian prefolds, a twelve awesome homemade soakers (made with layers of microfiber and fleece), two cute covers in prints, and some wipe cubes.
Not bad for a starter stash, right?
What amazed me was the interest the other ladies, young and old, took in the diapers when she opened them at her baby shower. Especially the Bum Genius diapers! They had never seen anything like them before. They were amazed at how easy they were to use, how cute the colors were, and how far cloth diapering had come!
All of us girls in the room who already cloth diapered looked at each other happily because we enjoy any conversation that we can have about the benefits of cloth.
We are all confident that our "new recruit" will be happy she made the choice to cloth diaper and now out of the five of us (sister-in-laws) in the family we have all switched to cloth over the past two years!
