So, I’ve been trying hard to keep going with the cloth diapers. It’s a battle. I started off using them and LOVED them for a few reasons. First, cloth diapers prevent a lot of poop explosions into the clothing. Second, baby has way less skin irritation; almost never need diaper creams. Third, the reduced waste and money savings are fantastic. Okay, so sounds like some solid reasons to stick with it, but there’s one glitch–it’s a lot of fucking work!
When I’ve been home with two kids all day, the last thing I want to do before bed is clean dirty diapers. But I do it. Most of the time. The rest of the time I use disposables.
I am trying, but of course am imperfect. But hey, I figure even cloth diapering part-time is better than not doing it at all! If you need some info on why to use cloth diapers, check out the bummis website. Lots of good stuff there!
