more on cloth

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!

    We cloth diaper, and I’m sure part of the reason why I love it so much is that, up until a few months ago, my husband did all the diaper washing. Luckily, Charlotte is pretty much potty trained now so I only have to do diapers once a week. A pain, yes, but I think totally worth it. Hope you stick with it!

    do you have to use any liners to catch the poop? or do you have to soak them to get rid of the poop stains?

      No liners. I do it the old fashioned way, scrubbing out the poop stains in the toilet and then washing the diapers on a soak cycle in my washing machine.
