We are on a quest to start cloth diapering! I debated when Ingrid was born if I wanted to do these, but of course we were so poor and I thought it would be gross to wash diapers, blah blah blah. I wish I had really thought about how much disposables cost. It's so easy not to see how expensive they are because you're just shelling out a small amount each time. But then I looked at the fact I spend $35 every three weeks on a case of diapers, that's 17 cases in a year, that's $595! Which makes the start up cost of cloth diapers, at $100-300 look really great! Yesterday was spent on the computer researching the different kinds and getting really overwhelmed. There are so many different varieties, each with pros and cons. I just don't know where to start, how much I want to spend, what's going to work for me. Luckily I found a few women on craigslist that have been really helpful and we're off to meet them this morning. Hopefully we will come home with some new cloth diapers and begin our journey. Also, there's a diaper giveaway on clothdiaperblog.com. Wouldn't that be awesome if we got some freebies to try?
