I AM A CLOTH DIAPERING MAMA!
WOW I never thought someone could get so excited to change a diaper or do a load of dirty dipes. I have to share how eaily excited I get about things. Something as simple as the alphabet I have been doing with Colton when a certain letter is reached I get excited about all the fun I have planned for that week. Yes, my life isn't that eventful but it is the simple things right? Well Colton won't be cloth diapering much since we are potty training as well. He was doing REALLY good on the potty and with the holidays and being busy I was the slacker. One of my resolutions for this year was being frugal/thrifty not because we need too, but because I want to.
Okay, so about the diapers. I chose to do a cheaper version. Prefolds and a cover. For the prefolds, I chose the Chinese prefolds. I also bought Blueberry coverall covers. Then I also bought what are called Snappis; they are to hold the prefold together like a diaper inside the cover. I did my research and read reviews on MANY sites. I also talked with a lady who helped me answer all my questions. Plus, my husband was all about it! can you believe that? Well, I can't. O and about the cover, I chose snaps and a one size. Day 1 was yesterday and between the first and the last change I improved and did what was right for me. Today was also amazing, I have never been as excited to change a diaper in all my life! Today I also washed them. I did a rinse cycle on the 'dirty' ones and then added the rest to a normal cycle with detergeant. They came out clean! There is NO sign of them being 'dirtied' on. I am WAY impressed and will continue to with my children and let everyone know this IS the way to go!
