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??? ;)


  1. I got the same reaction from my best friend and even though I do cloth p/t...mostly because I'm out and about with my 2 older DD and I'm afraid to go out with cloth, I am still going almost 8 months later. Good luck and hang in there!

  2. I have 4 kids now- 6, almost 5, 12 months, and 4 months... And I'm doing cloth full-time on both babies- even when we go out as a family of 6!!! It's all a matter of finding what works for you when you go out. For me, it's easy to use AIOs. I keep them in my diaper bag, and always put one on them when we're headed out, and it's easy! But if it's too intimidating for you to use cloth when out, just do whatever you feel most comfortable with! But don't be afraid, or think it's too hard- if *I* can do it, bumbler that I am, then *ANYONE* can do it! ;)
