the start of something new

So, I have been doing some thinking, and after talking with the hubs tonight, we are going to make the switch to CLOTH DIAPERS!! 

Yayyy!! Better for the environment, softer on baby's bottom, and ummmm..not sure what other positives, although there probably are more. 

We both are clueless on this topic, but more than willing to learn. 

As Joe said, "just one more thing they didn't have back in the day". He always says that we as a society need to revert back to cave man days, when things were more natural. 

The diapers we use now, go into our diaper genie, and sit inside a plastic bag. Only to end up in a landfill, forever. 


I have been reading some different blogs and posts from women who use cloth diapers, and it seems very confusing.

All the different types, inserts, blah, blah, blah...

It probably seems a lot harder than it really is, once you get the hang of it. 

Im so excited, and any help/info/advice is greatly appreciated!! 

We did look into a cloth diapering service in our area, and they will come out and teach us everything, and will provide us with the materials needed. Not sure if this is necessary or not, but it seems totally worth it! 


  1. I am in LOVE with cloth diapering. ;) I'm now on my second child, and have gone different CDing routes with each of them. I'd be glad to help if you have any questions at all. What area are you in? Before we lived in CO and had a wonderful service that came to our house, but here in KC there isn't one like that. Some places for you to check out are...
    and my favorites...

    Good luck and Congrats on this new endevour!

  2. I actually went to happybottomus and picked up some Fuzzybuns. I like them alot. There is a service in KC, which we are using, and it is working out good so far. We will only use them for a while, until we are more comfortable and familiar with cloth diapering.
