When Samantha was sick, I was using disposable diapers. It just made more sense, seeing how we went through 80 diapers in 4 days, to just use the disposables we had, throw away the diarrhea, then to use cloth, and wash, wash, wash in addition to taking care of a little sick girl.
Now that she is better (YAY!!!), we are back to cloth. And, I have to tell you, I missed it. I like cloth diapering. When we first started, it was ok. I didn't love it. But, it was doable. It made the most sense on so many levels and so I was bound and determined to make it work. And let me tell you, I have no complaints. I have actually started to prefer it to disposable diapers. They are easy to use, they are super soft, they absorb more, they wash easily, they are way cuter, I don't have to worry about diaper covers with dresses, I don't have to look at tacky characters on them, they are comfortable on her and I don't ever have to worry about them exposing little gel crystals on her. If we have another, I would so start cloth diapering younger. It has just been so easy. AND, I haven't once had to run out in the middle of the night, day or morning to grab diapers because I wasn't paying attention and we ran out. I haven't had to deal with the stink of the diaper genie. It has just been easy.
So, if you have EVER considered it, I recommend it. Whole heartedly recommend it. It's really that awesome. And right now, there is this awesome giveaway for a whole set-up from bumGenius on KellyWels blog. Be sure to check it out!
