With my DS I didn't know about online diapering goodies, so I asked for some covers for Christmas presents after her was born (1 month later). I had some smalls on hand and pre-historic PFs from my MIL. After Chrsitmas, I just used Bummis Wisper Wraps and some AWEFUL PFs... Gerber gauze with non-absorbent polyester fluff. Ugh! I hated it. Leaks and ick. They were so bulky, too. When he was about 1 he figured out how to take off his diaper and he was a real mess for too long. I gave it up.
Flash forward to when Cicely was born. I had some cloth on hand. Just some thin pfs and again, I used the prehistoric PFs and some used NB covers I got off Ebay. Again, it was ok. I was much more commited having a daughter and not wanting gel to even think about causing toxic shock. So... I started hanging out here. I bought some used AngelWraps off the TP in small...and the were SO CUTE!!! OMG! That's when it all started... I discovered that Cloth Was Cool!!! Soon after I got Jude into cloth. He LOVED it. I LOVED it. All is great!
Jude goes potty now, but still sometimes pulls out his favorite Sunflower Derrieres yellow UBCPF and asks to be changed! It's so cute.
I've since retired the yellow PF and he now gets to play with it in his toy box.
Ahhh, I LOVE cloth.
