|CGR's very first cloth diaper!|
My hubby is still resistant against the cloth. He doesn't understand why I want to do this and I don't understand why he is resistant. This weekend I made with the help of my sister some cloth wipes. I took some of the receiving blankets that I don't plan to reuse...I had so many...and made 2 layer cloth wipes with them. My sister really helped the most with this! I also got a spray bottle because I don't plan to store them wet as we aren't using them all day but spray them and use them like that. I have not started this as I couldn't get the 97 cent spray bottle to work but Special K thankfully fixed that! I made the wipes just big enough to fit in an old Huggies container so they pop out like the regular wipes do. I'll let you know how it goes. I figured since I'm already doing diaper laundry what would adding wipes do.
|Cloth diapers also make a great pillow when in shopping|
I also would love to try out a couple other types of pocket diapers and maybe some All in Twos or hybrids. That involves spending money on them and since the hubby is still resistant we'll see when I get to increase my fluff stash. I would love to increase the amount of non prefolds I have by double since right now I can't seem to make it through the weekend without a Saturday night laundry load. I don't mind doing the load but I would love not to have to so I'd have enough to get me through the weekend. I already have my list of ones I want to try.
Well...all in all I am a cloth diapering convert! If I stayed at home, little miss CGR would be in cloth all the time. If you are even considering doing cloth diapers, you should try the three bites weekend. I know several online retailers do a trial pack that you can use and send back. This would be a great way to figure out if you even like them. They are a big investment if unlike me, you don't already have some in the family to try. I hope that you'll consider them.
I'm sure you will hear more about them as time comes. I will do a review of the ones I try once I start trying them. The ones I have are no longer produced so I can do a review but honestly you'd only be able to get them used.
Happy Cloth Diapering!
