I’ve been thinking, why wait?
I plan on cloth diapering Abigail. Something I have thought about a while really. I had thought I would do it with Noah, but I wasn’t even ready to juggle two kids, continue with breastfeeding (was my first time), AND learn cloth diapering. I wasn’t prepared, and I did not educate myself either. Not to mention, I tried the whole cloth diapering with only ONE diaper. I know, that’s NOT truly trying them out.
It was a flop, as you probably guessed.
I have read so much on cloth diapering since then. Reviews, articles, brands, ideas, advise etc etc.
There is a A LOT out there. My goal this time is to make it easy for myself. Find the few things that will cause me to just feel comfortable.
For me these include:
- Drying rack
- At least 12 to 24 diapers and inserts
- Diaper pail w/ Mesh bags for diaper pail
- Wet bag or two
- Wipes holder for cloth wipes – to keep them moist
Anyways, back to the “why wait” question. I was thinking about my boys, and it came to me. What am I waiting for? Starting new with Abby? I think in the long run it will be easier to simply do them ALL in cloth diapers, then to do partly cloth partly disposable.
With my oldest, who is just about 4, still not potty trained, I think this will actually help him. He’s got to FEEL the pee, which is something he never has.
And who knows, Noah may get potty trained sooner as well.
So, I plan on switching the boys asap. Although… I just purchased a bunch of disposable diapers the other day. I figure I have time to get set up for the boys now (I’ll obviously want more diapers then 12 and such). I am excited, and think I am ready this time.
Have you cloth diapered before?
Are you planning on it? Please let me know your thoughts!
