You May Be A Cloth Diaper Addict If You…

  • Like to post pictures of your little one on Facebook, just to show off his or her cute diaper.
  • Feel the need to purchase diapers when they go on “buy ___ get one free” sales.
  • Check the “Fluffy Deal of the Day” on a daily basis at Kelly’s Closet, just in case it is something you “need.”
  • Take time to carefully and artfully craft your argument to your spouse as to why more diapers need to be bought.
  • Try to figure out if it is Stacy or Calley writing the post on Diapershops.com’s Facebook page before you see the name –and you can guess correctly more often than not.
  • Want to have both boys and girls in order to get to buy diapers for both sexes.
  • Have made your spouse as obsessed about them as you are.
  • Give cloth diapers as gifts.
  • Hear your baby’s first words and they are “triple dollar days.”
  • Look fondly and with pride at your diaper stash after everything has just been washed and put away.
  • Mainly tried out mama cloth for yourself because of the cloth diapers you use on your little one.
  • Could technically go for weeks without washing diapers because your stash is that large.
  • Have your computer and camera’s memory card full of pictures of your baby’s padded tush.
  • Are envious of people who can make their own cloth diapers.
  • Can and do make your own cloth diapers.
  • Love talking to people about the benefits of using cloth diapers and your personal experiences using them.
  • Have a hard time pulling yourself away from the computer when the Fluffy Deal of the Day gets changed every couple of hours.
  • Cannot stop looking at your newly arrived diapers for the next couple of days.
  • Find yourself daydreaming about what your next purchase will be, or how to spend your gift certificate.
  • Are saddened a bit at the thought of having to pack away the diapers when your little one outgrows them or is potty trained.
  • Enjoy reading diaper blogs like The Cloth Diaper Whisperer.
  • Diapers and gift certificates to Kelly’s Closet are on your wish list.
  • Find yourself taking your time when changing your little one’s diaper when out in public, in order to show off the cute diaper being worn.
  • Visit and post on DiaperShops.com’s Facebook page at least once a week.
  • Scour the internet for diaper giveaways.
  • Enter your tracking numbers into the mail system, hoping your package somehow magically jumps in status from “Electronic Shipping Info Received” to “Out for Delivery.”
  • Buy diapers for specific occasions, holidays, and seasons (i.e. Christmas, fall, winter, spring, summer, Halloween, Fourth of July, favorite sports team, etc).
  • Coordinate your little one’s Halloween outfit around his or her cloth diaper.
  • Look out the window every time you hear a large vehicle drive by when expecting “fluffy” mail.
  • Spent way more money than you intended on cloth diapers and accessories between Black Friday and Cyber Monday, and you “forgot” to mention it to your spouse!
I am sure all of you have many more that can be added to this list, so please be sure to add your additional ones in the comments below because I would love to read them!  And thanks to those who gave me ideas for the list, it was a lot of fun to compile, and I am guilty of too many of them!

Assume everyone wants to hear about cloth diapering, even when it's at a work lunch.
