Cloth diapers take two

November 5th, 2008 at 06:46 pm

Well we tried them when UE was a baby, and found I am just not cut out to wash poopy diapers, plus the covers didn't fit right, and they leaked half the time.

At church the other week we met a cloth diaper enthusiast who sells as well as uses them. So I asked about what she had, some sort of wrap with an insert, and most importantly a flush-able liner for poop.

Seemed like I might try again, so I bought two and some liners to try. So far no leaks, they fit rather well, and I have no idea on the liners, the one time EL pooped in the cloth I forgot the liner! but that at least all washed out easily.

I still can't see me using cloth in PA, but at home, I think I might be able to handle them, depending on the liners effectiveness.

Looking at cost, a dozen diapers would be the same as 6 months of disposable. Assuming EL is PTed at 15 months like her big sister (not counting on it, but making an early estimate to see if I save on cloth) and I would be saving 4 months worth of diapers...

factor in some flush-able liners, and the travel disposables, laundry costs...and it would come out even at worst.

If we have any more kids though.. we would save money.

I could certainly do with less stinky garbage. I think we will prolly go for it.

    funny, I am trying my cloth diapers again. They leaked a lot when the Bean was younger, but now they don't leak at all. I think he just grew into them.

    I never used anything but cloth diapers, but they probably did not have disposables in my day??

    If you don't have more kids, you can always sell them. Mine went for big bucks on ebay.
