As if the money-saving aspect doesn’t drive enough families to switch over to cloth diapers these days … there are tons of other reasons to really give them a true shot.
I tried to switch a couple years ago when my oldest was a baby, but after buying a handful of diapers I had no idea how to use, thinking that simple cloth diapers really couldn’t be that confusing … I surrendered almost overnight and gave up.
Whatever — I totally realize that cloth diapering isn’t for everyone, right?
In the past month, we really have started cloth diapering 100% of the time in our house, to the point where my almost-four-year-old is now wearing cloth overnight instead of pull-ups for the occasional mistake at night. While my laundry has increased about 3-4 loads a week, my bill for diapers is now $0 a month … except for when I go on a spending spree when I see a good diaper sale online.
I started to think of some of the top reasons we switched over, and I put them together in hopes of encouraging others to take the plunge with me. Heck, one of my best friends is expecting in March and she is already buying cloth diapers online and getting ready to cloth-diaper her little girl! Props Steph!
