My battle with cloth diapering

I never really thought about using cloth diapers, not until I saw a handful of mom's around me doing so.
My thoughts were something along the lines of, "isn't that what they did in the old days?" 
Because, well, it was...
But I listened to mom's talk about it and how it saves money + is good for the environment. 
Not to mention they make the babies butts look so darn cute. 

So I made the decision that we'd use cloth diapers and we do, most of the time.
But can I just say that some times I really hate them? 
I despise doing laundry and they surely add a ton more because um, babies go to the bathroom a lot! ;)
It's not even the laundry part that makes me dislike them so much at times...
It is the fact that some times they are just nasty. 
I tried spraying them, but really it just got everywhere and I really didn't want to throw up.
So then I used a spatula. Not gonna lie... that was probably worse. 
Now, I just dunk em.
Still grossed out? 
Yeah, me too. Seriously, some times that makes me want to gag. 
Some times its just easier to use disposables and I do. 
I give myself grace in this area because at times its better to not deal with it. 

It's a battle really. I go back and forth between wanting to keep on using them and wanting to stop. 
I know though, that using them will save a ton of money because my goodness diapers are pricey! 
That's what will keep me using them. 
And the fact that I just got a box of them for $50 for baby Maeva. ;) Love finding them for cheap! 

Do you use cloth? Did you and then stop? 
What are your thoughts of cloth diapering? Worth it or no? 


  1. I have no experience with diapers and no input to give -- but I can say your little one is absolutely adorable!

  2. I use cloth diapers and love them. I have flushable diaper liners to make it easier to clean off the poopy diapers. I also have a diaper sprayer. Sometimes it is easier to use disposable, but Micah's bottom doesn't get rashes hardly at all with the cloth. I also don't want to add to the landfill. Keep at it - it is worth it - in many aspects!!!

    1. I will definitely keep at it. It's hard but I know its worth it!
