Falling in love with cloth

Postby Aug05Dec11mommy » Thu Jan 12, 2012 10:09 am

When did you ladies decide you loved cloth? Was is instant or did it have to "grow" on you? I am not sure how I feel about the cloth. We have done a combo of cloth and sposies for the last few days. I dont love cloth, but I dont hate it. I could honestly take it or leave it. I did notice that the "cheaper" sposies (luvs, bru brand, and publix brand) leave Kennedys skin red like it gets no air. Huggies are working the best as far as sposies go, and I am not in love with the pampers swaddlers this time (DS only wore pampers, so its funny that I dont love them now). I am so tired I have no desire to make any decisions. Not even what to make for dinner. LOL! I am not sure if that is why I cant decide how I feel about them.

I didn't love it right away. The first few days I was honestly feeling completely bummed because I didn't know what I was doing and I didn't feel the way about it that I expected. I was so excited before she was born to try them all, and when it actually came time it didn't live up to my expectations. It probably took about 2-3 weeks for me to really enjoy it, and now I would honestly never go back to disposables. Just try to give it a little time. :)

I don't know as I can ever say "I loved cloth!". I just made it pretty much my only choice. For cost, health and environmental reasons, we just decided it was the way to go (I do use a sposie occasionally, in emergencies). I do like the way it looks and how it's better for LO, but I can't say as I ever like changing any kind of diaper, or swishing poopy cloth in the toilet! I just do it because I think it's the right choice.

Just plain prefolds and covers have worked for us for 14 months, so I can't complain.

It grew on me. At first I didn't mind it. Then I kinda liked it. Then I LOVED it and wouldn't switch back for anything.

I found it hard to do cloth a a newborn. I think once she hit like 8 weeks, I found it much easier.

You guys are scaring me a littlllllle!!!!! ;)

I bought newborn cloth--so I hope I can do it. But I will have to remember if I'm failing, that I can pick it back up a little down the road and try again. FAILURE IS NOT AN OPTION! :)

I loved it right away, BUT I started when DD was 6 months old, so not the same situation at all. During the newborn days, you're just trying to survive from one hour to the next, so don't make any decisions yet. If we ever have another newborn, we will definitely do cloth from the beginning. It is harder at first because you don't know what you're doing.

DD just potty trained, and I'm actually kind of sad, but my cute diapers will come back out as soon as we bring our new little girl home. She's already 2 though, so she may not be in diapers much longer either.
