Guess what? We have decided to go ahead and switch to cloth for our babe's bum! We are officially on day 3 and I'm loving it..I honestly don't even mind the extra work! We picked up some Gro-via cloth diapers from a sweet little (sometimes overly expensive) boutique here in town, and boy it was not cheap! BUT as soon as we got in the car we rationalized amongst the two (or three if you count Harlow) of us and decided this was the best for her health wise, and the best for us financially, and finally the best for our planet, which will be hers to explore sooner than we can even imagine. So far so good and we've only had a couple hiccups, but it gives me something to giggle about with her during the day.
So are you curious as to why we chose to cloth diaper? Because I have to admit, I've been given some stink eye looks over the past 6 months when I excitedly exclaimed that we were for sure going to go green with her diapers. Here are a few reasons that made us ultimately decide this is the way to go.
We chose Gro-via brand after reading reviews and talking to a few other parents, and also because they have disposable inserts in case we are on the go and run out of cloth inserts.. or if I fall behind on laundry. That being said I'm going to contradict myself a little here below.. oopsie! I really am going to try to steer clear of the disposable inserts though.
