Cloth Diapers

The verdict

>I was so psyched to try the diapers, they arrived so fast and were adorable.  I chose the grasshopper, butternut and twilight colors.  They are soft green, yellow & blue, though a little brighter than they had looked on my computer screen.

The instructions said I only had to wash them once, though some other materials become more absorbent with each wash.

I dried the inserts in the dryer, laid the diapers flat to dry and waited impatiently.

While I was waiting for them, I had figured out how long it would take for one diaper to pay for itself with full time use, for those 3 to pay for themselves with once daily use, and how long it would take to recoup the cost of a full stash with full time use.

Finally, they were dry, and within the first diaper change, I was hooked.  They were a cinch to put on and were adorable to boot.  Hubby called him a bubble butt but I thought the fluffy but was too stinkin’  cute (get it?  stinking?  ’cause it’s a diap…oh never mind).

It didn’t take long to see how much less irritated his bottom was during the hours he was wearing cloth.  But, since we only had 3, we had to put him in disposables the rest of the day, and slather him with diaper cream.
