life in cd'ing has now been about three weeks since we made the switch....
so i'm no where a near 'pro' classification in the cd world!! :)

i thought i would give you a 'how's it going' so far in our cd journey :)

cloth diapering, in my opinion, the good out weigh the bad. for me at least, maybe not for everyone. i'm not trying to step on anyones toes....
if it comes across that way to you, i apologize. that is and was not my intention! :)

*cd are better for our environment. they won't sit in landfills for 50+ years and leak into our water systems........yucky!

*we have found that they are easy to put on baby mason, just like disposables were. slide the diaper under his soft, little cute butt and velcro them baby's on.

*we have had NO leaking so far! i was pretty worried about this especially for the over nighter part, because he sleep about 11 hours a night straight....and....still no leaks! yee haw!

*could they possibly be any cuter? colored diapers? cute and when wearing baby legs...even cuter!

*we change him every 3-4 hours, just like when we used disposables {unless we honestly forget}

*they are easy to wash. the only slightly annoying thing is that we only have 12 diapers so far, so it seems like i'm washing them quite often, like every other night. each time you wash you have to wash them twice too. everything can be put in the washer together {like the inserts and outer diaper} but only the inserts can be dried in the dryer.

*obviously a downfall is when your husband doesn't clean the poopy ones. in his defense, i was very aware of this before we started this journey. he would be all for it as long as he didn't have to hand wash the poopy ones. but honestly it hasn't been that bad. when he was just a teensie newborn mason would have blowouts all the time and i would hand wash his clothes, so maybe i'm just used to it.

*we can continue to use our cheap *All* free and clear laundry detergent. $8 a bottle and lasts months!! they suggest using of course really expensive detergent, but i didn't fall for it and we've been ok so far :)

*when we travel to friends or family's houses we will use disposables just because in case he poops i don't want to say "um...excuse me for a bit i am going to have to clean mason's poopy pants in your bathroom." maybe that's weird of me i don't know?
*also, mason has not had any diaper rashes since making the switch!

*we will save approximately $2,000+ before he is completely out of diapers :)

if you have any questions about cd'ing please ask!, i can do my best at answering them.
i may post more about our journey....we shall see :)
