I think I might be crazy, but... I've decided to give cloth diapers a try. My mom is really going to think I'm crazy! It is just really bothering me when I think of the moutain of trash my child's diapers create! So I've ordered enough to give it a good try, but not so much to be terrible if we don't like it. First we will just use them at home and see how it goes. We will probably use disposables at night until we get the hang of it during the day. Nathan has actually been on board with the idea. He likes the idea of saving money I think. Now seems to be a good time to get started. Boo is just getting into size medium for diaper covers, and the poops are a little more solid, but still nasty. I have some ideas in mind to make it work. I bought 3 diaper covers, 16 prefolds, a few inserts, and the liners all from cottonbabies.com. I spent $85. I won't be asking babysitters to use disposables right now. So I'll still be buying disposables. We'll just see how it goes, how much it saves, and if we want to stick with it. I appreciate any advice on cloth diapering!
