Am I crazy?

I actually look forward to changing diapers! I'm so glad I chose to try cloth diapering with this one. I had some sposies to use up that we got as gifts, and even though Levi's a month old, he blew out of probably 10 of those, yet he only blew out of one pocket diaper (which was probably my fault since he was way overdue for a diaper change).

I just feel like.. why don't more people do this? It's so fun and just as easy as using sposies! Not to mention all the other benefits :)

The only thing I don't like is the bulk, especially at night when I have to stuff "mondo diaper," but that's a small price to pay for not having to clean up a poopy mess up his back in the morning.

DH still has yet to dare changing one (although I think he's just using it as an excuse to not have to change diapers anymore) but I don't mind... I like changing him now, anyway :)

I thought I'd also share my stash, since for some reason I can't explain I feel proud of it :)

1 doz GMD prefolds
3 unbleached indian prefolds
3 Chinese prefolds
3 Babykicks hemp prefolds

2 Bummis Bamboozle STRETCH fitted

3 BumGenius 4.0 pocket
2 Rumparooz G2 pocket

+ 3 Babykicks JoeyBunz hemp inserts
+ 4 Thirsties Duo Wraps

This whole stash only cost me about $250, and I have more than enough. One happy mama here :)

I totally understand! It's fun and the diapers are so cute. We started using ours on Tuesday and I'm hooked. :)

Yep, changing diapers is totally different when its cloth.

All my friends and family think I'm weird for cloth diapering at all, let alone enjoying it! :lol: So yeah, I understand. I just try to keep my diaper love contained to this board and my DH, although even he thinks it's a little strange. ;-P
