You Know You Are a Cloth Diaper Addict When...

I admit that I am addicted to cloth diapers of all kinds. Covers, pockets, and anything in between. My addiction started slowlyduring my 4th pregnancy we discovered we would be having twins. I then randomly searched Ebay for cloth diapers and found some seconds and ordered them. ( Not the best purchase I ever made.)

I didn’t think much about my diapers until the twins were two months old and finally big enough to wear the diapers. It was then that I started researching cloth diapers and my addiction became full blown. I now “stalk” cloth diaper website, blogs, and online stores for good deals and great giveaways. I talk about my diapers to anyone who will listen and have currently been able to switch three friends to cloth diapers just by talking about how much I love my cloth.Here are a few of my favorite moments of my cloth diaper addiction:

1) You know you are a cloth diaper addict when you start stalking your mail box after receiving a shipping notice from your favorite cloth diaper store.

2) You know you are a cloth diaper addict when you wake up from a dream that was taking place in a cloth diaper store.

3) You know you are a cloth diaper addict when you forget to tell your husband the exit while driving because you were day dreaming about Thirsties Duo Wraps while taking a family trip.

4) You know you are a cloth diaper addict when you are asked if there is anything you would like for Mother’s Day and in your head you are dreaming of getting some more fluff for your babies’ bums!

Please comment below and share your thoughts on your cloth diaper “addiction”.

Can totally relate, yet my addiction only began 4 months ago after I had my third child.

I have only been cding for a month. I already have #1 checked off. I am checking my tracking each day to see when a package is coming. And by every day, I mean every hour or two!

Don't have to worry about #3 - we use GPS! It does that work for me :)

So, maybe in another month or two I will be a complete addict!

when your favorite chore is washing and hanging cloth diapers!

Funny about the Mother's Day comment, I actually am planning on spending any cash I get on cloth diapers for the baby.

You know your a cloth diaper addict when you buy diapers to coordinate a 2 year old and 3 month old girl so their cutie bums always match. I change them at the same time to be sure they match.

Oh, how I can relate to this! My husband thinks it is hilarious that I am constantly looking at diapers online!

dor said...

Last night I was rocking my baby in his room looking at his (my) stash thinking that despite having enough for 4 days without washing maybe I could just try a few wool covers. I attended Twitter parties, follow 14 people talking about cloth diapers and read at least 3 blogs only about diapers. Now that I write it all out...

You know you're a cloth diaper addict when you have to switch to sposies because of yeast and tell your daughter that she's cute, but not as cute as she would be if she was back in her fluff!

You know you're an addict when you go online to check your email real quick and end up buying 4 diapers instead.
Yeah I think I may need help.
And I only started a week ago. Eek this is bad!!!

I can relate to all of these comments, I think.

You know you're a cloth diaper addict when you're dreading potty training because then you won't have a reason to buy more diapers

You have to talk yourself out of buying every color/pattern of a certain diaper....
