After taking a four month hiatus from cloth diapering, I've decided that I'm ready to go back. I love the classic look of a cloth diaper. And cloth diapers today aren't what they used to be. There are more choices than one could ever imagine. They're more user-friendly than they used to be -- no pins and no wet pail (EW!). They are a little more work than disposables, which is why I took a break.
After Dan's three week trip to India and my road trip through WI, I did not feel up to it upon my return, especially because that's when we began our adoption journey. With all of the paper work and the stress of the home study visits, I wanted to simplify my life. But now that things have settled down I'd like to get back into it because:
1. I hope it will help Indi potty train sooner. Disposables these days are so absorbent toddlers hardly know when they're wet.
2. As this website puts it, "would you wear chemically treated paper underwear?"
3. I hope to tread a little softer on the earth.
Here's Indigo in one of her diapers.
