I took the plunge. I started, or shall I say re-started, using cloth diapers for Monkey. I had swaddled him in cloth for about year and a half but he grew out of his dipes and we switched to disposables. The other day we ran out of disposables and I couldn’t bring myself to buy more. Why? 1) toddler sized diapers are expensive 2) I was feeling guilty about leaving diapers in the landfill for over 250 years.
I put off buying bigger cloth diapers in the hopes that Monkey would rise to the challenge and get potty trained. I finally put my wishful thinking aside and faced reality – it’s not going to happen for a while! Once I came to accept this fact I took the next step and bought some cloth diapers.
Here’s what I got:
I like the affordability of prefolds and the fact that they create less laundry (you can reuse the covers for more than one diaper change).
Do you use cloth diapers? What kind have you tried?
