That's right. We are making the switch! Call me crazy, but it's something I've wanted to do since before Landon was born. I didn't get very much positive feedback about it. It's too hard. It's too difficult. Nobody sticks with it. I got discouraged on the idea, and so we've just been adding to the landfill the past ten months. However, a few weeks ago Landon and I participated in the Great Cloth Diaper Change and I changed him with a borrowed diaper. Easy peasy!! So we may be ten months behind on this whole cloth diaper thing, but we are taking steps toward a more sustainable approach to diapering.
Well, it turns out it's quite stressful to buy cloth diapers on a budget. The dang things AREN'T cheap, not even when you're buying used. Sigh. I've been searching HIGH and LOW. Reading up on how to buy them for cheap... Which turns out, $14 a diaper is cheap. When you need at least 20 of them, that is NOT cheap. Craigslist and eBay have turned out to be the best bets.
BUT, I made some bids on eBay, and it looks like I may be getting these Sunbaby diapers as well. Which is really stretching our budget, but it's a great deal on some nice diapers and we can use the extra ones to help save on the amount of laundry!
Well, then I also have put in bids on a few others.
and I really wanted these Charlie Banana diapers (below) but they're just out of my price range. Sigh.
If you're reading this and you're a cloth diaper user, please, please give me your feedback!! I really don't know what to look for. If you can tell me what I may need besides the diapers themselves, that would be wonderful as well. Lastly, do I need special night time diapers?
Thanks so much, y'all! We are super excited to make this change! My only regret is that we didn't do it a long time ago!!
Have a great day!
