Cloth diaper excitement and reflux...

After much thought and too many people telling me I shouldn't I've decided to try cloth diapers, we're on day 2..and it's one of the easiest things I've done yet! Holy cow! I think when people think cloth they think leaks and poop everywhere! Not true at all! I decided on all in one inserts...and I've got a heavy wetter on my hands and lets just put it this way, I put Lilly to bed last night at 9pm and by 5am the diaper did not leak (i had doubled up in inserts of course). I still keep the disposables around for exactly what they were made for (convenience). But, we are about 80% cloth now. One day I thought to myself after seeing how cute some of them are, the next thought in my head was...I've gone through just about 1,000 diapers so far...and every single one of them ended in the garbage which ended in a landfill. That thought sickened me and I bought cloth the next day after researching all night (ha). The cost will save me tons, too. And,honestly Lilly's butt looks too cute in pants with the cloths, its huge and seeing her crawl in them is adorable, ha!

We're still suffering from reflux over here, although I think a lot of it is her working herself up and throwing up, because if I see it coming I distract her and she doesn't do it. At any rate we're off to the docs tomorrow to see if we can change formulas....right now she's on Earths best Soy formula, because of a milk allergy but i'm almost wondering if she's developed a soy allergy. I've already cleaned up vomit today.

Well, it's nap time, and i'm going to use this time to shower and attempt to clean!

that was a huge reason I switched was the fact that I could use them with other children. I just feel so much better with my cloth diaps rather than disposables...there is nothing cute about a disposable....except for convenience

I've got a super heavy wetter. The what has worked the best for us are doubled up prefolds and wool. I have fell in love with wool.
Another way to look at the savings of cloth diapers: you can use them on another child, sell them, or re-purpose them.

And you just have to love the fluffy bums.
