Our Fluffy Buns!

Once upon a time, I decided to try cloth diapering... and ended up loving it! Seriously, it's WAY easier then I anticipated (and I was giving it the benefit of the doubt!). I really don't understand why more people won't do it! Think about it. What are some "fears" about cloth diapering?:

Poop... why is everyone so afraid of poop?!?! You're going to touch poop at some point - even while changing a disposable! If it makes you that uncomfortable, go and buy some rubber dish gloves and wear those while changing a poopie cloth. Sure, it's a little more work than just tossing it into the trash, but is it really that hard to take a couple minutes out of the day to spray out a dirty diaper? I maybe spend an extra 5 minutes a day on diaper upkeep... worth it!

"They're just not as convenient as disposables"... Whatev! My bunGenius 3.0 are amazing! After washing, all you have to do is put the insert inside the pocket in the cover and you're set! Mine are even Velcro closure!! Jason wasn't sure what to think of cloths until we got them and he changed a diaper - even he says they're easy. If you're out and have to change a cloth, just change them like normal, and put the dirty in a ziploc bag. I made a cute little zipper bag for my ziploc to go in so I don't even have to look at the dirty... and no unsuspecting diaper bag snooper knows what it is either! lol... I can even still use my diaper champ - amazing!

"They're not cost effective"/"They're so expensive"... again WHATEV! We spent 4 months worth of diaper money up front and have diapers forever! We have to run the washer and dryer a couple extra times a week, but even then, it's still cheaper than the $25-ish we were spending a month on disposables.

Jason and I are very pleased with our decision to cloth diaper, David is happy as
usual, and life is still going on as normal. Not to mention how ridiculously cute the diapers and David's new "fluffy bum" is. Probably my favorite feature of these diapers is that they will fit a baby from birth to potty training - now THAT'S a great investment!

I would love to go Cloth but I honestly don't have the money to pay for them up front. I barely can pay for the disposables when I need them,
what do you suggest?

Throughout my late adolescense and adulthood, I have had many positions (professionally and volunteer basis) that have helped me develop skills necessary to serve as a liaison to the community on behalf of a professional organization. I have spent many years in various organizations which have helped me grow skills such as public speaking, note taking, and scheduling. I am proficient in organization and mediation – always keeping the mindset of finding middle ground and while meeting the needs of those involved. I excel in the area of community outreach and thrive in situations where I am given reign to be creative and managerial. I am committed to achieving the best outcome and feel I have many fantastic qualities to contribute to any organization.
