When I brought up cloth diapering as an option for our fourth baby, I’m pretty sure everyone I told thought I had lost my ever-lovin’ mind.
“All the laundry…”
“Do you really save that much money?”
“Are you going to have time for that with everything else on your plate?”
Our oldest three adorned the traditional store brand diaper full of who-knows-what-chemicals and I have learned enough since then that I knew I did not want to go that route.
So, as a converted crunchy mama, I was left with two choices: cloth or all natural.
In surveying my natural options, brands like Babyganics, Seventh Generation, Huggies Pure & Natural and Honest Company stood out.
I tried them all and liked most of them, but they weren’t cheap.
In fact, no disposable diapers are.
This is where the cloth option came in.
In my reading, I found out how much cloth diapering saves you money.
Then of course, there’s the health factor and the “good for God’s earth” factor.
My final decision between cloth and natural disposables…
Little Miss wears cloth around the house and Honest Company Diapers when we’re out and about. I also use disposable if she has a diaper rash because rash cream is not recommended for use on cloth diapers.
Next week I’ll talk about which brand I chose and why, as well as what our cloth diaper routine is!
