Cloth Diapering Helped Save Our Finances

When we decided to start a family, my husband and I agreed that I would stay home with the baby. My job didn’t pay enough to justify the extra expenses of day care anyway. This was going to mean living on a single income and a very tight budget. But at the time, I don’t think we fully realized how tight. When I began researching the major expenses of having a baby, diapers were the one thing everyone talked about: they were expensive. I couldn’t imagine how we were going to come up with enough money to keep buying disposable diapers every week. I decided to search for other options and I found information all over the internet about cloth diapers, in spite of the fact that no store I’d ever been in carried more than Gerber prefolds. My research began when I was only one month pregnant and within days I knew that cloth diapers were the best economic choice for us and I never looked back. I ate up all the information I could find on the subject. My days soon revolved around the benefits of pocket diapers vs. prefolds and snaps vs. Aplix. My daughter is now nearly 18 months old and we almost exclusively cloth diaper. We have an eclectic stash of prefolds with Bummis and Thirsties covers, Thirsties Fab Fitted diapers, Thirsties Duo diapers, bumGenius …

A Family Affair

It all began when I was introduced to the world of cloth diapering with my 15 month old. A friend used them, they were cute, and it saved money! So, I ordered my first three pack of Fuzzibunz. It was love at first sight…and smell…and touch! I soon began ordering more, stalking the online shops and making room in our budget for more cloth, so that I’d have enough cloth diapers and never have to buy disposables. When I had enough for my 15 month old, I realized that I was still buying disposables for my 2 1/2 year old for night time and naps, and discovered I was pregnant, again! I soon put cloth diapering on hold, and got rid of the stash I had acquired. I felt like I was wasting money on cloth, “special” detergent, and electricity by just cloth diapering one of my soon to be three children. I didn’t have the money at the time to buy enough cloth to fully diaper three kids. Sometime in mid pregnancy, after reading my brains out about cloth diapers and how to make it work with all of my children, I decided that I was going to make it work. I was determined to be a cloth diapering family, from newborn to toddlers. I started over, regretting ever stopping and letting go of my dear stash. I started …

“Fluffing” the large bum

My son was born weighing 10 lb. 4 oz. and did not fit into the newborn-sized diapers I purchased for him. He has continued to be large for his age, always measuring in the 95th percentile in height and 80th in weight. Around 18 months old, we had troubles squeezing him into most of his “one-size” diapers, especially nighttime pockets that needed extra stuffing. Friends told me that he’d “slim down” and his diapers would fit well again and that he is not really chubby. He’s just tall and solid and his physique has not changed. By 20 months, diapering was nearly impossible and our son was upset that his diapers were pinching or digging in on his skin. I had to find other solutions. My search began in our own diaper stash. I found his Thirsties large covers still fit perfectly, but the “one-size” fitteds and standard prefolds did not. I ordered large Thirsties Fab Fitteds and found this to be an EXCELLENT combo with plenty of room to grow. The Fab Fitted is so soft and stretchy and the cover is plenty roomy. Also in our home stash, we found FuzziBunz perfect fit diapers in large are also still fitting and working, though on the last hip and waist snaps. Bumkins large all-in-ones fit great and are a favorite with babysitters, grandparents and my husband. But our combined …

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 …
