Why We Started Cloth - and why we continue

Posted by Beth on 4/6/2012 to FuzziBunz
When my son was born in 2009 I had a house full of disposable diapers stocked and ready to go. I was the farthest thing from a cloth diaperer there was. Now look at me. Not only do I use cloth, I am employed by a cloth diapering store (more than one actually!), and I actually encourage and persuade friends, relatives, and strangers on the street to consider switching to cloth. How did I get from point A to point Cloth?

When Mason was about 4 months old, I went to a huge consignment sale. At the sale there were a few vendors selling cloth diapers. I bought a babycarrier from her and she talked to me some about cloth diapers. I feigned interest, but mostly I thought "yeah right, hippie. I'm not touching poop. That's disgusting." Not 3 months later my blog got popular, I hit Twitter, and I started thinking cloth might not be soooooo disgusting. I could at least fake interest in it for a couple months to get some great reviews and giveaways up and boost my following because of all these crazy cloth mamas on Twitter.

I purchased a few FuzziBunz, and pitched some companies for reviews/giveaways during a big event I had planned. I jumped into cloth diapering with both feet and didn't look back. As most of you know... it turns out cloth isn't just for hippies. Turns out cloth is a heck of a lot easier than I thought. Washing poop isn't a big deal. Getting the opportunity to build my stash for "free" via my blog also gave me the opportunity to see the savings immediately. And my little dude's butt in cloth? HELLO ADORABLE.

Since then, we've built our stash, used cloth from day 9 with my daughter, and won't ever return to disposables. Cloth is nothing like I expected it would be. I have completely and totally become one of those "crazy cloth mamas" on Twitter, on my blog, and in my very being. I don't consider myself a hippie... but if my initial judgement of cloth being only for hippies is accurate? Well then, catch up with me at Woodstock.



Why did you start using cloth? Why did you continue?

When my daughter was a baby, I didn't know about modern cloth diaper options. I tried using a regular prefold and pinning it, but she was an extremely heavy wetter, and anything next to her when she peed had to be washed. I gave up after a day. She had constant rashes and yeast infections. We even tried prescription creams, and they did nothing. Once she was potty trained, she stopped having yeast infections and rashes...which is when I figured out that she had been having reactions to the chemi

My cloth journey began in 2007 with some Tiny Tush one size fitted diapers and Gerber plastic pants to try and train my 3 yr old dd. I had tried everything else, and what the heck, cloth worked for my Grandma, right? In less than 3 weeks, she was potty trained, and I found cloth to be a lot easier than I had thought. I was expecting, and started searching cloth diaper sites. I watched eBay for some cheap diapers to try to see which brands I would like. I found Cottonbabies web site and picke
