I am thankful for cloth diapering! Oh cloth diapering, how I love you. Cloth diapers have saved us SO much money and frustration. When I gave birth to Eli he had awful rashes that wouldn’t go away. A friend suggested that it was a reaction to the diapers and that I should try cloth as a long term solution. I was hesitant at first, but his poor little bum was so sore all the time that I had to do something. I couldn’t let him lay around naked all day peeing all over everything. I borrowed some diapers from said friend for about 2 weeks. After a few days the rash had cleared and wasn’t even a little red. I was sold. My husband was a little harder to convince, but when I did the math and determined it cost roughly $3k to cloth diaper Daiden for 3 years in disposables he was cool with it too. So I headed off to diaperswappers.com to find some diapers. After trying a few brands we settled on BestBottom diapers and that was that. I spent less than $300 to diaper Eli until he potty trained at 2 1/2 years old and now are using the same diapers for Ezra. Not to mention, when we are done, we can resell them for around half of what we paid for them. Not a bad deal diapering 2 children for $150, huh? I am so thankful that cloth is so simple and easy to use now, no more pins and plastic pants (unless your into those, some people still like them).
What are you thankful for today?
