experimenting with cloth diapers...

A while back we were gifted a ton of cloth diapers from some friends who already have 4 kids.  Awesome!  Well we just got around to doing an inventory and figuring out the easiest diapers.  Many of the diapers are (wonderfully) home made, so I can't give you brand names or anything, but they were very easy to use.

Granted, we don't have a baby to try them out on yet, but this bear didn't seem too against the cloth diapering idea...

This is a handmade diaper under an adorable princess diaper liner.  There are 7 other diaper liners, but I think we'll be using this one the most!  With experience with Daughter, we'll see how quickly she soils the covers and whether or not we need more.

We aren't really "green" people.  We're cheap people.  This saves so much!  And then add to the savings of cloth diapering in general the fact that we got so many of them for free!  Thanks so much, friends :)

We will purchase a few disposables.  Primarily for when we visit other people or maybe for the first few days home from the hospital.  They are convenient, but so costly!


  1. I'd recommend disposables for the first few days (week-ish) at home after the hospital...not only is the poo then horrible (like tar) you'll be very tired in general and not want to wash dirty diapers every other day....

  2. We are planning to use cloth diapers as well. We also aren't exceptionally "green" people either, but we definitely wanted a cheaper (and cuter!) alternative to disposables. That is wonderful that you received so many diapers from friends!!
