So far… so good!
I’m really enjoying it more than I thought I would. Call me a dork but the research is fun as well. I’m learning a lot and so many moms have so many great ideas! Why the heck didn’t I do this before? Oh yea… because I didn’t really understand it.
I know that I’m new to this whole cloth diaper thing, but there are a few things I wanted to just put out there that have been good for me. Thought maybe I could pass on what I’ve learned even though most of you have been doing this much longer.
First, a lot of people asked me what diapers I went with. Cost was a huge thing for me so I couldn’t buy $500 worth of diapers because well, we just didn’t have the money to do that. So I didn’t go with the most popular brands such as BumGenius, GroVia or Rumparooz. So my friend told me about Sunbaby, which are made just like those top brands AIO’s (all in ones).
There were some great reviews and some not so great reviews, but it seemed like for what I wanted they were a great brand to start out with, without being such a hit to our bank. So I got them! And they have been great so far! I realize it’s only been a week and that I need to give them more time but for what I paid for them I think I’ll be ok. Plus, they have some great designs.
A Diaper Sprayer is a must! Oh my word. I would have quit by now without it. There is no need to really explain since this made the most dirty part of cloth diapering that much easier. Best thing they ever invented! LOVE.
Wipe Solutions. I thought this would be the hardest thing to do but I have found some good ideas for making wipes and good solution receipts. I just made this awesome one with essential oils. I kind of laughed at myself while I was making it because this was SO not me. If you want to try it… here it is! The Lavender also makes for a good diaper pail sprayer. :)
5K & Chardonnay! Yay! So excited! What a way to start my first week off with cloth diapers. Winning something?! Totally awesome!
Hope your having a great week so far!
