Cloth Diapering

I've started cloth diapering Emilia about 6 weeks ago. I was so nervous to start, but its going really, really well! I have my favorites, and some that I cannot use at all, because after a week, they practically fell apart. It is amazing how many WAHMs out there make these dipes, and how some of them are making a KILLING! One diaper could go for over $100!! I'm NOT kidding!
We haven't had any leak issues, now that I've figured out which ones need extra liners, and that after she drinks a ton, I need to change her more often. I've read all this information about all of the icky things in disposables and how they are so bad for the environment... I really feel like I've made the right decision! And its so much fun to buy cute little dipes!! I already told J that I'm going to start buying little diapers in a couple of months for this new little bean!! :)

Joei - I had Rowan in cloth nappies from 2 weeks old until she toilet trained at 22 months! I saved a fortune and she never once had a sore bottom. I used to love seeing them all out on the washing line!
It has been hit & miss with Fallon though. Having a toddler & a baby means I am much less organised!
