New to Cloth Diapers!

After a year of using disposable diapers for Z, I finally made the switch to cloth diapers. I'm so glad I did. I think using cloth diapers was all I needed to really be a crunchy mama. ;)

A friend of mine, who is also a Navy wife, was selling some of her cloth diapers for a great deal and I couldn't pass it up. She gave me some tips on how to use and clean cloth diapers and also try not to get addicted to buying more! I can see why she warned me, I've seen so many cute designs and want to buy them all.

I have always wanted to cloth diaper since Z was an infant. It's never too late to start, right?

What really made me make the switch was a disposable diaper mishap that happened one morning. I went to change Z's diaper and found that it had "exploded", causing all of the sodium polyacrylate to spill out and make a huge mess. Let me tell you, trying to clean these little gel crystals from the bed and the carpet was not easy. They bounced all over the place!

I emailed the diaper company with my concern about these crystals and even told them I was going to cloth diaper instead. They replied stating that they are not harmful and are "widely used in cosmetics and in food processing." Like that makes me feel any better. Of course, when they read that I was switching to cloth diapers, they offered a few dollar-off coupons. Thanks, but I'm sticking to cloth. :)

Do you cloth diaper? What are your favorite brands? Any advice for newbies?
I appreciate your input!

  6. It can be easy to get confused between all the different kinds of Vape Juice There are many vaporizers out there that you can use with your e-cigarette such as the Tank vaporizer which is a very popular brand. They also make a sub-brand called the Tobeco from which you can get the Mini Vaporizer. They both have their unique advantages and disadvantages when it comes to vaporizing your liquids but there are ways to differentiate between the two.

  11. Wall art can be categorized into three categories: collectibles, works of art and costumer. The reason why most of the people love to collect wall art is because of the fact that they like to look at these pieces of art and want to display them in their homes.

  16. Farmhouse decor was an important part of the British rural life in the Victorian era. It consisted of attractive gardens, porches and the architecture that made it look like a cottage. It included plenty of trees and flowers to give it the look of a classic farm. The Victorian farmhouse may have included a table and chairs for a meal and several plant pots filled with bulbs and vegetables to add the sense of a small village or town in the countryside. If you want to add the same sense of country to your home, it would be worthwhile to explore the different types of farmhouse decor available.
