After my first born, I swore I was going to do better, now that I knew better. I was going to make her baby food myself, not use so many ‘chemically engineered’ items on her, and cloth diaper instead of using the disposables.
Well, I did well with the first two. I made all her food, I used more natural products with her, but the cloth diapering, I just couldn’t do. I heard so many great things about them, and I still do, but for me, it just wasn’t something I was going to grin and bear, I mean there was work to it, and lets be honest, I was tired, and well, LAZY! Disposables were so much easier! Less cost effective, but you pay for convience. If I was able to find someone who would do the laundry for me and change her diapers, lol I probably would have found convient, easy to use cloth diapers that I would have used on her, but alas, I’m the lazy mom who really wanted the easy way out.
Cloth Diapering is great, if you can do it, and if you aren’t lazy like me. I commend those who do! How DO you do it though? The laundry, the getting rid of the ‘mess’? I always wondered how mom’s were able to do it, with a smile and telling everyone “We Cloth Diaper”. So many questions, so many unanswered questions.
As my girls are older now, I don’t have to worry about that, but I still wanted to give you all a little advice, and/or laugh, I mean you can find pleanty of places where you can find reasons you should cloth diaper, one of my favorite reads is the Lazy Mom’s Guide to Cloth Diapering cause let me tell you, that is what I was, lazy mom, I wish I found that article sooner!
My Reasons Not To Cloth Diaper My Kids….
– White Diapers match EVERYTHING!
– More garbage provides jobs and something to do for the garbage man! We don’t want them out of a job!
– I like to shop, having to go to the store for diapers so many times, gives me an excuse to find other things I want to buy.
– Laundry sucks, I’m already behind, my kid will have a bare butt if I have to do so much laundry
– Infant Skinny Jeans!!
– Leaving behind a legacy! That’s right, my kids DNA is in those landfills!
Ok, so my reasoning isn’t really advice, it’s just a means for a laugh. Check out some of these new moms who decided to switch from disposables to cloth diapering, see what they thought and how they did.
Seriously, for those who do cloth diaper, I bow to you cause I just couldn’t do it. I’d like to know how you do/did though, what’s your advice to new moms who are thinking about cloth diapering?
