Cloth Diapering!!

I'm finally going to take the plunge and get rid of these disposables. Although I use Seventh Generation diapers on Ava, which is chlorine-free, they are not biodegradable. So, as much as I preach about being "green", I have to admit that I am a disposable diaper user. I have been meaning to make the switch, but I just haven't. Well, Sunday, I attended a cloth diapering workshop held by Lee-Ann Pinkard, owner of EcoBabies. Let me tell you, it was fantastic! She broke it down and I was thoroughly sold. I was probably sitting there with my mouth wide open in awe of how simple cloth diapering is.  I am placing my order on her website THIS WEEK.

I'm going to start with prefolds (basic cloth diapers) and covers and try various options from there. I'm so excited and so is Ava! Well maybe not, but in my mind she will love it. So, here we go. Check back to see how it is going!

It's going well! I probably cloth diaper 30% to 50% of the time. Definitely an improvement for me! Thank for commenting!
