Before my son was born, I didn’t have a lot of experience with babies, let alone with diapers. And when you said cloth diapers, I imagined a thin piece of fabric (far too thin for what it was containing!) and a gigantic safety pin. I imagined having to memorize a million complicated types of origami folds. I imagined being covered from head to toe in…you know.
So I was pleasantly surprised when I realized that modern cloth diapers were different. They incorporate a lot of technology and thought that I didn’t anticipate. Plus, they are easy to use! My favorites are definitely bumGenius Freetimes. I reach for them first, although I use everything in our collection: even the fitteds.
Over the past 15 months, I have become convinced that cloth diapers are
- Good for our baby (no rash)
- Good for the environment (no trash)
- Good for our wallet (no throwing money away)
I wish that I had put some money down when I made that initial bet; I’m so invested that our next kid will wear cloth diapers too. After all, I am now a cloth diapering dad!
