Coming Around Full Circle!

Well, it's been over a year since I first started buying cloth diapers. And admittedly, I've had a bit of diaper A.D.D... I went from using strictly pockets, to strictly AIOs, to strictly fitteds. Once I found the fitted love, I figured that was it from there on out... but I was wrong!

Don't get me wrong, I still love my fitteds... But lately I've been buying AIOs again- and even pockets!!! And for some reason, using all-natural fibers has dropped on my list of priorities. I grab whatever I'm in the mood for, or whatever my babies will allow me to put on them without alligator-rolling or launching off my legs with their strong feet. Snaps and velcro have become my friends again, after being a pin-only girl for quite some time.

There's nothing wrong with variety, it prevents boredom. And hey- it'll all come out in the wash, literally! ;)

Never Gonna Give Up, Never Gonna Give Up, No!

When I first told my sister I was going to do cloth diapers with my baby, she said, "Yeah, I give that 2 weeks and then you'll give up." I seemed to get that reaction from a lot of people... Other people just said, "Why on earth would you do that???!!!"

Well, my son is 11 months old today. And I can happily say- he hasn't worn a disposable diaper in over 9 months. And I'm not just doing it for spite- I thoroughly enjoy using cloth diapers. Sure, I've had my bumbles, I've had moments where I thought, "Wouldn't disposables just be EASIER???" (And truthfully, yes, they would- SHHHH!) But when all is said and done, I have no intention of going back to disposables. Ever. Period. Exclamation point.

I'd even go so far as to say I'm stuck to them like peanut butter poo on a bamboo liner- and if you don't know what that means, you aren't doing cloth diapers- so what's wrong with you??? ;)
