We have now decided that we will for sure be doing cloth diapers right from birth.
I must admit I'm slightly overwhelmed because there are A LOT of cloth diapers to choose from, but I'm ready to embark on this journey! One of the main reasons is cost. It can be pretty expensive to cloth diaper at first, but then it pays for itself because you can reuse them for years and years!
Another reason that I found really important to do cloth diapers is how hot disposables can get inside all of that plastic. And lots of studies have shown infertility in males linked to disposable diapers. We also don't know the long term effects of the chemicals used to make disposable diapers.
I realize these aren't factors to worry about with other parents, but I believe this is the right choice for US!
I'm a hippie...using a midwife, cloth diapers....what's next?!
If anyone has any experience with cloth diapers, I would definitely love any advice! It's a large task to embark on, but since Stephen has been so supportive of it, I know we can do it!
