In my mind I had always viewed cloth diapers as white rags wrapped around the child's bottom and held together by your grandmothers bobby pins. I found a company, GoGreen Diapers, and was blown away to see how different reality was from my perception of cloth diapers! There were so many different styles and many super cute patterns to choose. I was really starting to get excited and was looking forward to starting my cloth diapering experience. When the samples arrived at my door I quickly took them out for inspection. My mouth dropped wide open when I saw the Tiger and the Moo Champ . They were adorable and very well made! I was already starting to kick myself in the behind for not looking into cloth diapers much sooner. I am pretty sure my boys also fell in love with the sight of the new diapers. This was evident by their attempt to rip off their disposable diapers by themselves and put the new "super cool" diapers on right away.
Following the instructions I made the boys wait a little while so I could first wash the diapers before use. As soon as the new Champs were dry, the old diapers came off and the new ones quickly replaced them. I love how simple it was to button the inserts into place inside the diapers. You can even put multiple inserts in the diaper for added leakage protection. Being new to cloth diapers it took me a little while to figure out all the snaps on the outside of the diaper. I was a little confused at first until I researched a little and saw how they worked to fit all sizes from tiny infant to my super tall 3 year old. There is even a diaper with colored coded snaps to help out people like me. I just thought that was the coolest thing ever. They even have Adapt-a-Snap diaper closure conversion systems that converts from a snap system to a hook and loop closure system. This was perfect for my oldest who at the time was learning to potty train and had a little trouble getting the snaps off all by himself.
GoGreen Diapers. We have even had a few mornings where we woke up with some very heavy diapers!
Cleanup was much easier than I thought as well. It was nothing at all like I had imagined. The whole process was really quite simple. I thought there would be a lot more "dirty" work involved. It really was as simple as shake out any solids and soak in the washing machine for a little while before going through the cycle. I was expecting them to come out with stains but so far that has not happened. I really have fallen in love with cloth diapers and feel like I will never go back to only disposable diapers ever again. With only owning two diapers, I have already made some purchases for a few more. I still do not know what the perfect amount of cloth diapers is to own. That will vary from person to person depending on how often you feel like doing laundry I guess. What I do know is that I keep finding myself buying and collecting more diapers because they are so easy to use and just so darn cute. Monica cannot wait to get a Monkey Pee, Monkey Poo print if we ever have a baby girl and I have my eyes on the camo.
