Mommy Has a Green Side Linkup {Cloth Diapering}


For this week's linkup, I'm thrilled to say that I am officially converting to cloth diapers. I have wanted to do this since my baby was about 3-4 weeks old. I hated seeing how the disposable diapers just kept piling up. It made me realize that it was such a waste on the environment and a waste of our money. 

As many of you know, I have been using the Honest Company diapers because they are biodegradable in the environment and they are non-toxic (many disposables contain toxins/carcinogens). I made the switch and I have to say that I still love them. In fact we are still using them as we make our full time switch to cloth. I'll boast on the Honest diapers any day - they work just as good if not better as Huggies or Pampers and they are healthier for us all. At the end of the day though, I still felt like cloth was the right way to go. 

Yesterday she spent the whole day in cloth diapers and seriously it was the easiest thing ever. Modern cloth diapering is a lot like disposables really- you pull it off, you put it in the wet bag and you grab a clean one. That's it. Easy peasy. Unfortunately she didn't poop for me yesterday so I didn't experience that and I only purchased enough for a day, so today she's back in disposables while I wash the cloths. 

I can't wait to go back and purchase more so I can have 2-3 days worth! I don't have to sample it any longer - I want to do this. I wish I had been doing this since day one. But more on that later...

So here's to living a much more eco-friendly way and to diapering my kiddo in the cutest, healthiest diapers. Not to mention I'm saving a crapooula of money. And yes, I just made the word crapooula up and I think it rocks.

And you'll get a much more in-depth post on our switch to cloth later once we've been doing it for a while.
