My mom used cloth diapers on me, and M's mom used them as well. We would really like to use them for our baby. They are better for the environment and end up costing less in the end (especially if we end up having 3-4 kids, as we hope to).
I just wish there weren't 10 different types of cloth diapers! There are prefolds, pocket diapers, fitted diapers, hybrid diapers (???), and all-in-ones, and that isn't even all of the kinds. It is so overwhelming. I've checked out a bunch of the major websites (i.e. Jillian's Drawers, Kelly's Closet, Nicki's Diapers) and I just can't believe the selection. Within each of the 10 different types, there are at least 4 or 5 different brands or makers.
Seriously, I just need someone to tell me, "this is the cloth diaper for you" and then I can go from there. I find it hilarious that I spent an hour one night this week reading diapers review. Lots of paragraphs on diaper absorbency, susceptibility to leaks, and drying efficiency. Oh, and did I mention that poop poop poop is mentioned over and over? Well, I guess it comes with the territory.
Zulily.com has a sale going on right now for some Bumkins diapers. I reluctantly checked it out, since I don't really want to think about buying yet, and before I could scroll to the bottom of the page I had already added two to my cart. It would have been more if the other one I wanted wasn't out of stock! They were $16 instead of $25, and I had a $10 off of $30 coupon code...so both cost me $22! Okay, so here they are, my first cloth diapers:
They are Bumkins Dr. Seuss All-In-Ones (meaning there aren't any inserts or anything like that) and they are size small, for newborns. I just couldn't NOT get them. Ugggh...I'm so weak.
Do you have any advice or thoughts on cloth diapering? I'd love to hear them!
