All About Why We Use Cloth Diapers

Tuesday, February 5, 2019

Happy Tuesday! 

I’ve been taking some time to really just enjoy my time at home with family. I rarely post to Instagram stories, I post to my feed a couple of times a week and try to write at least one blog post a week. You guys it’s been SO nice. My children will only be small for a second and I want to enjoy ALL that I can. 

If you have been around since my second pregnancy then you know we used cloth diapers. Our son had (what I thought) was sensitive skin. It wasn’t until our our third baby that I realized that we are dealing with the real deal now! I had a couple of friends who used cloth when I first started and it was so helpful- so if you ever need someone to ask questions, I’m your gal! 

Why do we use cloth? Our youngest baby has the worlds most sensitive skin. We strive to use non toxic products most of the time and chemical filled diapers are what is terrible for our daughter. She gets a diaper rash at the drop of a hat. So we switched to cloth with number two for the first two years. When he turned two I went back to work full time and it was hard to keep up with- oh not to mention I was also pregnant! I was really tired most of the time and adding another load of laundry to my day as hard. I packed them away until we needed them for number three! 

Okay for real now- we use cloth for a few different reasons. 1. There are no chemicals= there is no diaper rash! 2. It saves money- I wash a load of diapers at the end of the day. 3. We don't use them at night and not everyday- deciding to use cloth diapers is similar to what I say about using non toxic products. It doesn't have to be all or nothing. Thankfully we have been blessed with great sleepers. My kiddos sleep 12 hours a night so a regular diaper at night time is what works best for us. I'll go through days of using only disposable. Whatever works best for you. 

Our favorite brand is Nora's Nursery. Why is it that we love adorable diaper prints? These prints are so girly and sweet. You can find these and other prints HERE

I hope you guys have a great rest of the week. If you have any questions about cloth I'd love to hear from you!
