Yep, we've decided. We're switching to cloth. I know I've talked about it before, but I've had it. Thad has had a ton of diaper rashes lately and then they turn into yeast infections. I've tried air, baths, creams, and I'm just tired of seeing the little guy in pain. His poor little boy parts are so red and swollen some days and it's all because of too much moisture. While it's been happening a lot more since he's been sleeping through the night on his belly, it's just happening too much for me to be comfortable. Oh and did hear the cost of diapers was rising? Yeah, I'm not cool with that.
So tomorrow I'm taking Thad and the hubs out the the only cloth diaper store near us (in the city over from us) and we're going to get our hands on some cloth diapers -- literally. I plan to touch and feel all the cloth diapers I can so that I have a good idea of what I want. Some of you gave me great information the last time I asked about them and I'm grateful for that. I'm also grateful for a friend I have from high school who happens to be cloth diapering her daughter. She has been invaluable when it comes to asking questions and getting prepared. While I still feel a little lost, I'm a mama on a mission.
I plan to document the switch here so every now and then you'll find some updates on the process, my thoughts, mistakes, ups and downs of switching from disposable to cloth. Now don't worry, I'm not going to start preaching to the choir. I respect your right to diaper your baby how you see fit. However, I will be reviewing cloth diapers and products of that nature -- so if you have any questions, feel free to ask and I'll do my best to answer them.
For now, I'm curious. How many of you are cloth users? How was your transition? If you don't use cloth, have you ever considered it? Have any of you ever used Nicki's Diapers or any other online store - if so, what's your favorite?
