Converted to Cloth

Posted 08-1-2012 at 10:15 AM by whitneywalters

I have successfully convert two people to cloth and I am pretty proud of that. I love my cloth diapers and it is even better when you have people around you that love them as much as you do.

The first person I converted was my older sister. She had her first child in March of this year. She had been changing my kids diapers since I started using cloth four and a half years ago. My sister always like my cloth diapers and she was wanting to us them with her kids, her husband was actually the one that needed more convincing. He did not want to have to deal with the washing. My sister was able to talk him into it so for their baby shower gift I bought them a small stash of diapers, plus I loaned them my newborn stash. I am really happy that my sweet little nephew gets to have cloth diapers and I like having another baby to shop for!

The second is one of my best friends. She and I have been friends since we were teenagers, she is currently expecting her second child and one day she called and asked if she could borrow my newborn stash of diapers. Her husband and her are both in college right now and the month that her baby is due money is going to be tight. She was trying to think of anyway to save money and diapers was a way to do just that. My nephew as long outgrown the newborns I let him use so they are now going to be used by my best friend. I am also getting her a small supply of OSĀ  and small diapers for when her little guy gets bigger.

I hope that they both stick with the cloth and learn to love it the way I do. Being able to have someone else to shop for diapers with has made me really happy.

    I have only been able to convince one of my friends to convert her nine month old to cloth. But i’m pretty excited. Better than nothing!

    I’m looking for ways to help a young woman expecting twins to save money and the environment but am overwhelmed by all the fitted cloth diaper options out there. What do you recommend for Preemies? I want to get her some organic, if possible for the next six months.
