Cloth Diapers

We're about 1 week in to our cloth diaper experiment. I'd heard lots of good things about them, mostly from my SIL, Melanie. Before Judah was born I had basically decided I wanted to use them, but Melanie very wisely told me that I should wait a few months, at least until I finished with residency. She definitely made the right call on that one - it would have been hard to do cloth diapers when he was still a pooping machine and I was working a lot. But I'm really enjoying them now. It's nice not worrying about running out or having to run to the store to get more. I'm washing them about every other day, though I'm getting a few more and will then have enough to wash every third day if I need to. We're still working the kinks out of the cloth diaper routine, but overall I think I really like them. One of my favorite things about them is how cute they are:

















(Isn't my rainbow pretty??)

And I love that there are no cartoon characters involved. The other big bonus, of course, is that we're not continuing to buy disposable diapers. And if we (hopefully) ever have any more kiddos, we'll save even more money....

Yay! Now where are pictures of Judah with a cute little cloth-diapered bum? Because if the diapers are cute and Judah is cute ... well then, we need to see them together :)
