Is there anything prettier than a big stack of fresh, fluffy, never-been-soiled cloth diapers?
OK, there are probably plenty of things prettier, but they are really nice.
Reasons I'm cloth diapering (from someone who has yet to actually change a diaper of any kind in her life):
1.) "diapers" will not end up on my weekly shopping list
2.) I like reusing things
-- Cloth diapers make great dust cloths, etc. when you don't need diapers anymore (not that I ever dust... Hey, that's what kids old enough to not wear diapers are for!)
3.) They're so comfy. I mean, I'd rather have soft, soft cotton on my bum than plastic. Oh yeah, that's why I wear underwear instead of Depends!
-- Possible TMI alert!
Some months before becoming pregnant with Lucy, I switched from 10 years of using disposable menstrual pads to using cloth ones that I made myself. I'll never go back. They're much more comfortable, cost effective, conscience-mollifying, and nowhere near as disgusting as they sound. I would encourage all you young ladies out there to try them.
4.) Babies who wear cloth diapers have cute, chubby bottoms.
Oh yeah, and there are all these reasons, too.
