Months, or a year, later... I found out we were expecting a wee-baby and realized that "To Cloth or Not to Cloth Diaper" was going to be a decision we needed to make. I told Katie how I was seriously considering this whole cloth diaper thing. It was a mix of other to-be-mom's blogs, friends, and handfuls of YouTube videos, that convinced me. I then was able to convince my husband: we'll save money! it's better for the environment! softer on baby's bum! all good! and we did a little extra research to be sure this is what we wanted to do.
Come some months later... Katie thought of me when her friend told her she was trying to sell 24 gently-used Bum Genius 3.0 one-size diapers, a diaper pale, cloth wipes, a cloth wipe warmer, tea tree oil, lavender oil and Bum Genius anti-odor/stain spray. Whew! The whole package, and for a discounted price since they were used. Being the rock star friend that she is, she brought them to me and let me decide whether or not this was really what we wanted.
We bought them. The rest was history, and lots of laundry. We're so pleased with the decision to cloth diaper! I recommend it to everyone. You don't have to buy disposable diapers or wipes ever, you're not filling landfill after landfill with your baby's poop-filled diapers, and I like to believe that it's more gentle on Santi's skin, as well.
Happy video watching! Here's our routine!
Oh, and here is the diaper pale liner we use. We have three. I recommend having at least two so that while one is being washed you have a clean one to use!
Please message me with any questions! Also, here are a few videos and websites that guided me along the way (before, during, and after our decision to CD!):
