I must say I love cloth diapering. I was a bit confused in the beginning because it seemed like Lola was just wet all of the time. Truth be told, I thought she was sweating in them and even wrote a post about the fact that Costa Rica was too hot for cloth diapering. I was just new to the whole cloth diapering world (hell the diapering world period) and I suppose a bit naive as to how much babies peed. She wasn’t sweating in those diapers, she just peed a thousand times a day. So during those unknown months, we were using disposable diapers the majority of the time. But $14 for 56 diapers began to add up and the cloth diapers were simply too cute and too good for the environment not to use. I gave it another go and now here we are cloth diapering all of the time. Well not really all of the time as we put a disposable on her when we have long outings and also at night. I love the environment, but I’m not about to get up five times a night and wake my kid just to help out Mother Nature. Now Rob and I didn’t buy the most expensive cloth diapers because well…they are really expensive anyways. We ended up going with the Papoose cloth diapers which we found on eBay.
They came in 10 different colors and prints with 20 inserts. I always double up on the inserts in her diaper, but am still changing one of the inserts about every 1 – 2 hours. Is it more work washing cloth diapers? Yes. Do I change her more? Yes. But the benefits far outweigh the negatives and I’m glad I gave them a second chance.
