Before Peanut was born, I had full intentions on cloth diapering. It seemed so eco-friendly, not to mention cost effective. But then, I discovered the drugstore diaper deals, and I realized that I could get packs of diapers regularly for under $4 a pack! It's been wonderful to not have to spend too much money on disposables, but since I did purchase some basic prefolds, I figured I had better at least give them a try.
So below is Peanut modeling a basic pre-fold diaper fastened with a snappie. So cute! She is also wearing a nylon cover (this is very BASIC cloth diapering folks!). I know there are many other all-in-one cloth diapers out there, but at $10-20 a pop, these prefolds just fit our budget much better. I tried to time this first attempt after she already pooed, so we'll see how it goes!
UPDATE: Cloth diapering is much easier than I thought it would be! Peanut didn't seem to mind her new diaper at all! The cover, although very basic, didn't leak at all and I was surprised to see how wet the prefold had gotten in the 2 or so hours she wore it. It was really easy to just toss it all in the wetbag and put another one on her. I resued the cover since it was still dry. The only downside was that I think she wasn't used to feeling a little bit wet, and this might have cut the one nap she took while in it a bit short. Other than that, I loved it! It's a great feeling knowing you don't have to run out and get diapers at the last minute since you always have some on hand!
