My First Cloth Diapers

Mommie V

Mommie V and Funky Mama Bird are starting "Cloth Tushie Tuesday" and I thought I'd join in on the fun! Today we are talking about our first cloth diaper. My first cloth diapers were bought before Ethan was born and I was still working. Eli and I decided that I should stay home with the baby and we were looking for ways to save money. Cloth diapering was something that could save lots of money! I did a little research online and bought 15 BG 3.0 in white. I thought white would be easier to clean because I could use bleach on them. I don't have those same diapers for various reasons (see this post) but BG's are still my most trusted diapers!

We didn't start using the BG's until Ethan was 2 months old. He was just too small for them and I think I was a bit overwhelmed and wasn't ready to add one more thing to my growing list of responsibilities! I am so glad we started CDing and I can't wait to CD the Little One from the beginning. I've already started my Newborn CD stash!

Yay! Thanks for linking up! I totally understand the overwhelmed in the beginning bit; I totally plan on CDing from day one the next time around, too.

The diapers I had were way to big for my wee one - she was only 5 pounds 9 ounces when she came home from the hospital. I was in the overwhelmed boat too, so I dabbled in cloth, but did mostly sposies for about the first 6 weeks or so. Once the diapers started fitting better, it seemed to become alot easier!

I don't know if there will be a "next time" on this end, but if there is, it will be so much easier to start with cloth from the beginning!

Thanks for sharing your story!
