In the past few weeks, we’ve had a lot of people ask us about our choice to use cloth diapers. So we decided to explain our choices on here.

First of all, I need to say that Joe and I both wanted to use cloth. There wasn’t any persuasion involved. Like most parenting decisions, it’s more likely to go smoothly and be successful if you start with a consensus. (I’m speaking from nearly seven weeks of parenting experience here!) However, even if one parent uses cloth for their diaper changes and the other uses disposables, it’s still better than all disposables (better both for the baby and for the environment)

I did a lot of research while I was pregnant. A LOT. I spent a long time trying to figure out what kind and how many…. and then after I made that decision I had to figure out how many to get and where to get them. I’m a bargain hunter, so this was a fairly lengthy process.

Joe and I will add more information to this section as we have time, but here’s our most frequently asked question:

Q. Are you glad you went with cloth diapers?
A: YES – absolutely!

Diapers!
