Our First Time

Day One of Adventures in Cloth Diapering:

I used a Chinese prefold & Bummis Super Whisper Wrap.  This is all new to me, and I've been doing a ton of research for a few months.  I also ordered a Thirsties diaper cover and a BumGenius to try.  I'll be sure to let you know how it goes.

Most people are probably wondering, "Why in the heck are you using cloth diapers?"  Here are my reasons:
1. It's cheaper
2. It's cuter
3. It's better for the environment
4. Less chemicals against Lillian's skin
5. If it goes well for me, I hear it's really addicting

And Lillian just pooped so here goes my first attempt ...

I wish you the best and I admire you for trying the cloth diapers. Lily's diapers look better than the ones I used on you for a short time. I had to use safety pins and, thankfully, you don' least I can't see any on Lily's diaper. Also, your diapers were plain white and the rubber pant covering was white/clear and too hot for summer use. Keep up the good work and, again, I admire your determination in this new endeavor.

I am still torn about the cloth diapers. My concern has been the amount of water you end up using since we are in the desert. But they do have biodegradable disposable inserts too. Let us know how it goes!
