Re: Why did you start CDing?

I first started to cloth diaper DS#2 when he was 1 1/2 cause he was breaking out too much using sposies and I was sick of him being in pain with rough dry cracked skin from the chemicles in the sposies. I bought 12 FB to start out and they were huge on him. Even now at 2 he still needs a PT. So I used the FB for my 2 1/2 yr old at the time and bought others to replace Matthews. I ended up loving it and started to research about sposies. I wish I knew all about the latest cloth diapers earlier than I did but I still made the switch and thats what counts. my 3 yr old is completely out of diapers and I still cloth diaper Matthew 100% of the time. If I have more kids they will be cloth diapered from the start.

Re: Why did you start CDing?

I started because my youngest ds had HORRIBLE skin problems. Sposies seemed to make it worse and he constantly had a rash. I also was shocked to read about the effects sposies have on the environment. It's also a bonus that it saves money.

Re: Why did you start CDing?

Our son has really sensitive skin. I went searching for an answer to his horribly cracked skin that wouldn't heal...... started reading and talking to a friend, bought 3 FB's saw how easy and cute they were..... ordered SNAP-EZ and then the real addiction started. Now he's completely rash free and won't wear disposables..... he loves them too!

Re: Why did you start CDing?

Initially, it was the enviromental factors followed by money. After we started doing it for a while I realized just how cute CDs were!

Re: Why did you start CDing?

Daniel got a red mark almost like a rug burn on his legs and it only took once and in cloth he went. A friend of mine used a service and a week later I went nuts and got my own stash to do. SOOOO much out there you could never get bored..plus better for him read an article how it could cause issues (sposies) later on with having baby's and I want LOTS of grandkids hehehe

Also I like how I dont have a bag of dipes to throw out
