It's official - we're going cloth!
The newer cloth diapers that are on the market are amazing!! These ain't yo mama's diapers; these are state of the art, completely washable, and adorable. Take a gander at Bum Genius or Apple Cheeks for some adorable examples (and there are many more different models and versions with velcro, snaps, both, etc).
After my 3 years of nannying 3 very active boys (and potty training two of them), I have seen my fair share of poop. I have washed my fair share of soiled clothes in the toilet. I have seen many a blow out at the most inconvenient times. Poop doesn't scare me. Vomit doesn't scare me. Both combined in a giant blow-out doesn't scare me. It happens. I'm not intimidated by the thought of changing and washing diapers so that didn't really play a big factor in the decision to go cloth versus a diaper service. It saves money to just do it ourselves. Poop is poop.
I love saving money, I love not having to go out in the middle of the night for diapers, I love being able to use something for all the kiddos, and I especially love the cloth community that I've encountered in this research. It's not full of hippie mamas who are stickin' it to the man - it's a community of practical moms who stick together.
