Cloth diapers

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!

  1. Okay, Max is adorable. Even though I know he pees and poops in those diapers all day long.
