"I think they're crazy," I said. "Don't you think so?"
I was expecting immediate assent, but to my surprise, my husband was quiet for a moment. I repeated my question, to which he finally responded, "I don't know. I mean I've been thinking about it... and it sounds like it would save an awful lot of money. Maybe it is something we should look into."
But skipping ahead a bit, I am glad to say I DID eventually come around after deciding I would research cloth diapering a bit (my initial purpose was to find evidence to convince him this was a crazy idea). Over the course of about a week of reading The Cloth Diaper Whisperer Blog, perusing Kelly's Closet, and watching Kim Rosas cloth diaper review videos on dirtydiaperlaundry.com, I suddenly and unexpectedly found myself completely addicted to reading about and looking at cloth diapers. In fact, I could hardly wait to use them on our baby girl. And unlike some families who decide to do disposables until their babies can fit into one-size diapers, I was determined to start with the newborn stage (mostly, I admit, because the newborn cloth diapers are ADORABLE.)
I have tried not to be an obnoxious cheerleader about cloth diapers, but it is hard not to be overly-enthusiastic when I see how adorable my baby girl is in her cloth!!
