as soon as i found out was pregnant i began to plan.
i planned out everything.
from the type of birth i wanted to have...
all the way down to
the best natural shampoo and body wash i wanted to use on my baby.
this planning also included cloth diapers.
i can't say that the reason i wanted to use cloth diapers was because i wanted to save the planet.
(though, i do)
i watched something on the green channel that compared cloth vs. disposable
and it was a toss up between which was better for the planet.
(landfills vs. the large amount of water used to wash cloth)
the real reason was the money factor.
i always hear friends complain about how expensive it is to have a baby.
between diapers and formula the cost per month is CRAZY.
so, i figured i could solve all of that.
breastfeed and cloth diaper. viola!
i'm happy to say that, to date,
we have spent $0 on maintaining our little lovely.
score for me! :)
there are so many different kinds of cloth diapers and different brands to chose from.
we chose bumgenius.
they had good reviews, and i have a friend who uses them and loves them!
so do we!
when anyone heard that i wanted to cloth diaper i got two reactions...
a very sarcastic, "good luck!"
and, "we'll see how long that lasts!"
i have to say, negativity only pushed me to make it a successful experience.
and, it is!
I LOVE IT!
i do a load of wash every other day. i could go longer, but i don't like having soiled diapers sitting around too long.
i hang them to dry either inside or outside.
stuff them...then, they're ready to go! it's really easy!
i also make my own "wipes".
again, saving $!
i use baby washcloths and a spray bottle
with a few drops of dr. bronners castile soap,
water, and a few drops of grapeseed oil.
Spent some time with this little cutie today. She is perfect! ❤️
I think she likes me.
