"When a soul recognises the will of God and shows a readiness to submit to it entirely, then God gives Himself to such a soul and renders it most powerful succour under all circumstances." - Rev. Jean-Pierre de Caussade

Cloth Diapering: Revisited

I feel like I should revisit the whole cloth diapering thing because my previous posts probably made most people think AIN'T NO WAY I'M DOING ALL THAT. Well. Sorry about that.

What I'm realizing now is that cloth diapering is not that bad if you know what you're getting into. Almost 7 months into it, I can honestly say that I will continue to cloth diaper even if by some miracle we start having money grow out of our ears.

God has a funny way of leading you into something you never wanted to do (i.e. cloth diapering) and then you end up being an advocate for it. That seems to be happening to me a lot.


So, cloth diapering. I recently was able to buy a whole lot of informative e-books at a good price, and one of the reasons I splurged is because the e-book bundle included Confessions of a Cloth Diaper Convert. It had been on my wish list since it came out, but I haven't been doing much splurging lately with Logan's job transition.

Well, this book is SO informative and I really wish it had been available before I started cloth diapering - then I wouldn't have made so many mistakes.

So, if you're still contemplating whether or not to start using cloth diapers, or if you're still a newbie (like me), or heck, even if you've been CD'ing for awhile...READ THIS BOOK. She really covers everything!

I initially started cloth diapering purely for financial reasons, but now that is only one of the reasons I continue to CD. It is better for the environment, better for our homes, and most importantly, better for our babies (unless, however, your baby has super sensitive skin and reacts to cloth). And quite honestly, it can be fun putting cute diapers on an already-cute baby. :)

One thing that Erin Odom points out in Confessions of a Cloth Diaper Convert is that poop is poop, regardless of the diaper you use. Either you flush it down the toilet (cloth) or you put it in the garbage (disposable). So I'm thinking you might as well do it the safer and cleaner way! Poop was one of the reasons I was hesitant about cloth diapering in the beginning, but poopy diapers are not bad at all now that Landon is eating a lot of solid food (I literally shake the diaper over the toilet and that's it). Whew!
