After talking to mamaturtlemiller about cloth diapering. I have decided that maybe it isn’t as hard as I have always made it out to be in my mind.
When I was pregnant with Alex, I researched both cloth and disposable diapers. I opted to use disposables because we lived in an apartment, and I paid $1.50 to wash a load and $1.75 to dry a load. And that was in a communal laundry room. It didn’t seem like the best idea to wash something that was going to be against my baby’s little bum in a machine like that.
When I was pregnant with Nick, we were living in a house, with our own brand new washer and dryer. I had no reason not to switch. I just didn’t. I was using disposables with Alex, and it was working for us. Same with when I had Zoey. I never really revisited the whole idea of using cloth.
Until last night. Last night, I was given a couple links, did some research and decided that I was going to give it a shot. I am going to start part time with 1-2 diapers/day/child. I figured out that by using 1 cloth diaper for each child each day saves me $25 CDN a month. $25!! That doesn’t seem like much, but that’s almost a whole box of diapers! A MONTH!! And Alex is almost potty trained. The savings are only going to grow!! WHY DIDN’T I THINK OF THIS EARLIER??? mamaturtlemiller Where have you been all my Momma life?!?
I’m going to start collecting some cloth diapers and I want to start up by the end of August! Wish me luck! There will be more posts about this journey in the future!
Love, hugs and more to come later!
