adventures in cloth diapering
Hmm... that title gives off the impression that this post will be more interesting than I fear it is. Such is life. You may recall my decision during my pregnancy to use cloth diapers for Asher. We decided to get past the newborn-poop-every-time-he-eats stage, then we went out of town, and so we just actually began using cloth diapers two weeks ago. And I gotta say, it's going great! These bum genius diapers are super easy to use and the bright colors are SO fun! I sometimes feel sad putting clothes over them! We ordered 12 diapers which cost just over $200. For Asher that has been the perfect amount. We wash them every other night. The best part about these diapers is that they expand in size and so we will not have to buy anymore as he grows. Talk about a money saver!!!
The worst part: cleaning out the poop. But in another testament to the amazingness of my husband-- he freely volunteered to be in charge of the dirty diapers. As in he always rinses out the poop and washes the diapers. I do the majority of the changing and the assembly of the diapers post washing. Just another great perk to having your hubs work at home! So, in two weeks of cloth diapering, I have only rinsed out ONE poopy diaper. I'm a lucky gal. For reals. Love you, babe!
