Since Adam and I have been talking about doing cloth diapers, there have been dozens of people that tell us we are crazy and how hard they are and that we shouldn't do it. If you know me at all, this only fuels my excitement because now I have multiple motivations - 1) cloth diapers = green option, 2) cloth diapers = cheaper option, 3) I want to just to show everyone else I can! What can I say, reverse psychology works for me.
There are several reasons I placed my first order today - I want to be able to hold and look at and see what I'm getting into (Yes, with all my research, I've never actually found ANYONE around me that uses them to be able to see it for myself) and another reason is so I can actually show those naysayers what a 'modern day' cloth diaper actually is. They have absolutely come a long way since folded cloth diapers, safety pins and rubber pants.
My first order consisted of three different cloth diapers. I'll start slow...
- Bum Genius 4.0 one-size (I got the new kind with snaps instead of hook and loop closure)
- Bum Genius Elemental one-size (this is an organic all-in-one diaper)
- FuzziBunz one-size (pocket diaper)
So no, this isn't exactly shopping for shoes or purses, but holy moly, I can't wait for that package in the mail with the first cloth diapers!!! I'm THAT excited!!!
[ADDITION 7/27/10 - OK...I'm just as bad at online shopping as in store shopping....I can't make my purchases and get from the register to the door until I find something else I want! I added a Thirsties Diaper Cover and a cloth diaper snappi!!!]
I will definitely post pictures when they arrive!!
This leads me to my survey of the week - What do YOU think of cloth diapers??
