Maria from Change Diapers asked us to join her monthly hop and write a particular story, this month about how we got started….I’ve written about how we got started a couple of times. You can find those HERE and HERE. Please take the time to read them and come back to this post and leave me some feedback. I always appreciate new readers!
I read a blog before I even got pregnant with my first daughter, and one day her post was an emphatic LOVE of cloth diapers on her son. She hit all the selling points, and I was hooked. It did take a while to get into it fully, and we did use disposables for a while, then part time, and then for travel only, and finally, not at all. I continued to use disposable wipes for a full year. Once I started using cloth ones, I kept the disposable ones on hand in case babysitters wanted them, or in case they were necessary for some reason. It’s taken until B is 18 months to need any more, we just bought a new small pack (with a coupon) on Sunday. We definitely prefer cloth wipes, but some places just are harder to clean than others, especially with messy diapers. I’ll leave it at that.
The first diapers we used were prefolds and covers. It’s amazing how full circle we’ve actually come in our journey! If you’d like to read more, click the CLOTH DIAPERS tag underneath this post! Thank you for visiting us!
