Cloth Diapers

Liam has been getting rashes fairly regularly, so I decided to look into cloth diapering.  I honestly didn't think it was even something I was remotely interested in, until I researched it A LOT.  My sister actually mentioned that she was thinking about cloth diapering her little girl about a year ago and my exact words were, "Andii, don't get too carried away now."  Boy, am I eating my words??? 

Since we are maybe absolutely going to have one more child, it isn't just great for my little guy's bum, but it will also save us $$$ in the long run.  What did we have to lose??  I made the switch yesterday and below is a pic of a very adorable boy in a very adorable, and reusable, diaper.  :)

What can I say?  I love chunky little thighs.

Look at that tush!

These are a few of my diapers and inserts that I am "line" drying since it was a beautiful day.  Sun drying is supposed to be better for your diapers than electric drying. 

Don't think me a'fool.  It really is going great.  He hasn't had any leaks or rash so far.  The wash isn't bad and there isn't any funky smells coming from my diaper pail. 

Here's a list of my diapers:
4 -bum genius 3.0 large all-in-one diapers
3- flips covers and prefolds
2- econobum covers and prefolds
2- bum genius 4.0 one-size diapers
lots of inserts, wipes, and prefolds

So far, so good!!!


  1. What a cutie pie! I'm a sucker for cloth diapered babies. :-)
    I was thrilled to get back into it some months ago with my baby girl, after being off and on with babies # 3, 4, 5, 7. My husband is thrilled with not having to buy paper diapers anymore. :-)

  2. Thank you! I am so happy that they are working for us. I see a lot of savings in our future!! :)

  3. Green diapering is something I definitely want to do if we have anymore kids (which I am hoping for in the next few years if I can convince my hubby, lol) I'd like to invite you to share this post and others as your see fit to my recently new link up Healthy 2day Wednesday for sharing ideas, suggestions, going "green" tip, recipes, etc. Hope you'll join in & share the word on what it means help our families to be healthy!

  4. Love love love cloth diapering! I have been using them for both of my children, and will be for number 3 on the way. My favorite are the Econobum, because you can't beat the price and they never leak. BG4.0s are good too but make sure you don't put them in a dryer or it will ruin them. We barely have any problems with diaper rash anymore, and cloth are so much cuter! I hope you continue to enjoy them!

  5. Great post! We love cloth diapering, too! It's almost like a hobby to me. ;) And cloth bums are irresistible!

  6. Hi I have stumbled onto your blog and love it. I have a 10 month old son and while we don't have many diaper rash problems I have thought about cloth diapering quite a bit lately. How did you get started? Like how much did you buy to begin with? What is the hardest part? What do I need? What is your favorite brand or the one you would recommend to a novice?
