Cloth Diapers

28 May

For Aleah and Sophi we used disposable diapers.  After spending hundreds of dollars on these we decided that there HAD to be a better way.  We looked into cloth diapers and after the first week or so of using cloth diapers we couldn’t be more pleased.

What I was most worried about was the extra time I thought cloth diapers would take.  But it only takes a little bit longer since you have to throw them in the washing machine.  Instead of throwing the disposable diaper into the trash can, we throw the cloth diaper into a bin to store until laundry day.  Easy peasy.  When laundry day rolls around I throw them into a wash cycle on cold then a hot/cold cycle with a little bit of detergent.  Hang them out to dry while the kids are jumping on the trampoline and you are good to go.

The money we are saving by using cloth diapers is astounding.  Instead of buying new diapers for $20 every 2 weeks we bought 12 diapers for about $100 and Jared’s sister gave us all of her cloth diapers from her little boy and now we are set until little Hudson is potty trained.  How is that for awesome?

And how beautiful are they?

It does take some getting used to how big his bottom is when wearing a cloth diap and takes a bit more time  and effort to use cloth but we are excited about saving money.  We will save over $1,000 by using cloth instead of disposable!  Woah.  I can think of a few things I would rather spend $1000 on than diapers.
