Cloth Diapers, Clothesline, and a New Outlook on Life
In planning for his birth my husband and I knew that we wanted to provide him with the most “natural” life that we could- with the exception of the epidural!! 🙂 Kudos to y’all who can do without it! I’ve always been pretty “crunchy” (granola, hippy, whatever you want to call it) so I knew that I would want to breastfeed my baby as well as “wear” him in a wrap. I had heard of cloth diapering but I wasn’t sure if I would be up for it- I did know that it was much better for the environment as well as for my wallet! When I started researching cloth diapering I was surprised and excited (yes, excited) to see how far cloth diapers had come!
It was out with the “Old School” cloth diapers and in with the “New School” diapers. There are so many types: pockets, all-in-ones (AOIs), prefolds, fitted, covers, and contours! I didn’t know where to start! After many hours of research and careful consideration Tyler and I decided that cloth diapering was the best way to go for our family. We would be able to save money as well as not contribute to the landfills. Thanks to some friends I was able to navigate my way through the world of cloth diapers and figure out the ones that work best for my baby. I use one size pocket diapers for Everett, if you were wondering! (There are a few links at the bottom of the page for anyone that may be interested in learning more about cloth diapers!)
