Three of my friends from my Stroller Strides days (they are still my friends) talked so much about their use of cloth diapers (and saving money using them) that I decided to up on the cloth diaper bandwagon. Solely, because I want to find ways to save money, so I can still do the stuff I want to do even though I am not working without the amount of guilt I feel not contributing finiancially to our household. It's a nice bonus that we can also save a little waste.
I decided to go with the Bum Genius diapers, because that is what most of the girls I talked to were using. I got 10 diapers that were "seconds"- work the same, but much cheaper. I got mine from Cotton Babies. When Maxwell was born some friends gave us diapers, too. They got them from Green Bottoms in Davenport. We are still using disposable wipes, because I just don't want to invest the time and money into making/getting cloth wipes. Also, I like the idea that I can just throw those away, too. :)
We started on February 4- here is a picture of Maxwell sporting the cutie diapers!
