Well...yesterday was our first day using only cloth diapers! I must say, on Sunday night when I was putting together all the diapers after they were washed, I was a little scared and wondering what I have gotten myself into. I was scared about all the extra laundry and time spent re-stuffing the liners into the diapers and scared about how they would fit Jaxon...but with one day under our belt, I can say that it's going to be okay. The little bit of a diaper rash Jaxon had cleared up within the first 2 diaper changes with cloth, and they seem to be pretty comfy for him. They stay dry as long (or maybe even longer) than disposables and nothing seems to leak out. Jax even had a explosive sounding present in his diaper this morning and it stayed within the walls of the diaper! Phew. So I guess using cloth diapers isn't that scary. It is rewarding to know that we're saving major money (our diapers cost $500 compared to a MINIMUM of $1500 per child using disposables) and helping the environment.
We decided to go with Bumgenius diapers after I did a bunch of looking around and reading reviews, etc...they seem to be very well liked diapers and so far I am liking them too. Here's a picture of Jax sporting his new style.
our sweet neighbor let me use her clothesline this afternoon since we don't have one yet!
