These ain't your momma's cloth diapers...

So, crazy momma decided to take a deep breath and go ahead a buy a few cloth diapers.  Bumgenius one-size to be exact.  These diapers will fit baby boy from birth (if we had started at birth) through potty training.  They expand, which is awesome.   I went to the local children's shop, Kissui, and bought three to start. An aside...I LOVE KISSUI!  I could spend all day in there.  It is such a great shop, with incredibly practical and quality baby items.  Oh, and very helpful and friendly staff.  Ok....anyway,  since we do not pay for water at our apartment, they would really be the most economical diapers for our family.  Each diaper is the equivalent of 10 days worth of the cheapest, most effective disposable we could find (Target store brand, if anyone is interested).   I am really tired of watching us fill up a kitchen size plastic bag with disposables every other day.  That's just so much garbage.  I can't imagine multiplying that over the next 2 years.  So much waste!   So, I'm giving cloth a shot.

My first impression after having gone through three of them so far is:  WOW!  I'm sold!  They haven't leaked.  They are soooo very soft.  They washed really easily.  And, they look soooo cute. They come in great colors.  They can also be used for a second child (no we haven't started talking about baby #2, Little Chomp is not even 3 months---sheesh, people!).   They are sorta bulky compared to the disposable, but that's my only complaint.  I'm going to go out and buy what my cloth diapering friends call the best one out there:  Bumgenius one-size, All-in-one organic.

Here's Little Chomp wearing one for the first time!  He seems to think they are okay also.
