My Name is Kathy and I'm addicted to cloth

My name is Kathy and I am 29 years old from Akron, Ohio.  I became a mom on May 18, 2010 when I gave birth to a healthy little 5lb 7oz baby boy named Noah.  I began cloth diapering when he was 3 months old and I have been completely addicted ever since.
I originally started cloth diapering because a friend of mine cloth diapers her little girl and I loved the idea of saving the environment, money, and my little ones bum from chemicals:)  I quickly became addicted to all of the different styles and accessories that go along with cloth diapering.  My main diaper is a Fuzzibunz perfect size but I've fed my addiction and expanded my collection to include Grovia, Kissaluvs fitted, Thirsties duo diapers, fab fitted, and duo wraps, hemp prefolds, and stay dry duo inserts.  I LOVE my fuzzibunz hanging dry bag because it unzips at the bottom so it does not fill with water during washing.  I also love my Budda Bunz wool dryer balls because they really speed up the drying time in the winter when I dry in the dryer.

In the summer time I love to hang dry my diapers and I get so excited to just smell everyone as I take them down because they smell sooooooooo good:)  I never thought I would use cloth wipes but I LOVE using those too and it's so much easier than I thought it would be.  My favorite are grovia.  I also make my own cloth wipes solution.  I use Honey Bun Drops Cloth Diaper Wipes Solution and I just love the oatmeal and shea butter scent.  Yummy!  My baby's bottom is so soft and free of any diaper rash!!!!  I never felt the need for a diaper sprayer.  I use grovia flushable liners instead when I know we are going to have a dirty diaper and I just take out the liner and flush it!  It's fabulous!  I am always looking at new goodies and new diapers to try to add to my collection DAILY and I just flip when my fluff arrives in the mail:)  I don't know why everyone doesn't use cloth diapers.  I love cloth diapering!!!!

My son was born on May 18th 2010 as well! : ) He was 8lbs 6ozs though. I'm also addicted to cloth as well! I'm CD'ing my second child right now, I got hooked on cloth when my daughter was 13mths old.
