It has come as a surprise to the majority of my family and friends that we will be cloth diapering.  The gasps, the wide eyes, and then the “oh we will see how long that lasts” statements are something that my fiance and I are VERY accustomed to.  However, cloth diapering is not what it used to be!  No more big pins to keep your babies diaper secure.  No more dunking it in the toilet (ew).  And no folding (unless you are going with a prefold).  They are in fact: Adorable, 10% of the average cost of disposable diapers for one baby (and if you have more kids that percentage continues to drop), environmentally friendly, oh yeah AND ADORABLE.  Have I mentioned they are adorable?Image

Last night I officially bought our first cloth diaper from Just Simply Baby, and today we signed up for a cloth diapering class, for the sole purpose of me being able to play with more diapers.  I am so in love!  Not to mention they will teach me great knowledge I can pass on to all those who are considering cloth diapering.  In order to help build our stash we are holding a raffle for anyone that brings a cloth diaper to our baby shower.  Of course, we have registered for a ton and post various sites on FB to give our guest’s directions on where we will be going with cloth diapering.  Not only is that a great way to get a different assortment of diapers, your baby will have pieces that family put thought into when picking out, and you can open the eyes of other people to the cloth diapering revolution that is beginning.

I also found a great website today that is running a contest to get more people using cloth diapers!  They are doing a give away both for bloggers and for simple facebook likes.  Find out more about the Little Neechers give away here and maybe you can win some fun cloth diapering swag!

    Cloth diapering is addictive! I have enough diapers but just want more and more!

      We are going through the same thing, I think my daughter will look FANTASTIC in some Marvel Comic diapers, anything with an island theme, or anything that somehow relates to science. And it is my duty as her mother to make sure her bum is stylish right?
