Today, K found her Desitin container absolutely fascinating.  I wish that I found joy in little things like that.

After our Costco trip and buying size 3 diapers (you're right, they're too big for her since she's not even 14 pounds ... she just seems to be growing out of her 1-2 sized diapers so we thought we'd try them out) and spending $40 on 212 diapers, we decided that $40 a month (and sometimes more) just isn't worth it anymore.

So I stayed up last night (2 hours past my bedtime!) to research cloth diapers and all that goes with it.  I never thought I'd be a cloth diaper mom but over $100 later, it looks like I'm going to be.  All the items arrive on Thursday so I'm guessing by this weekend, we'll be figuring this all out.

I like the all-in-one diapers but boy!  They're expensive!  So I think I'll just start adding to our collection one diaper at a time.  I just couldn't talk myself into buying twenty-five $35 diapers (and like I have the money for that anyway).

I really hope this works.  I only know a few ladies in my ward who don't use disposable so I'm really not sure what this is all about.  If you have any advice for me, please give it to me.  I will accept anything and everything on this topic!


  1. Wow. you are brave. I don't think I'd ever switch to cloth . . . but more power to you! I have a friend who is all about them (3 kids) and loves giving mom advice. I'll hook her up with you if you want. Best of luck!

  2. I can't wait to hear how cloth diapers are going for you! I've thought about switching a lot too just because it's so much better for the environment. Not to mention I'd rather have something more natural on her bum. :) I have another friend that randomly bought some off KSL because they were so cheap and she has LOVED using them. I can't wait to hear how it's going!
