WARNING: Cloth Diapers are Addictive
Don’t say I didn’t warn you.
You sat newly pregnant in my Cloth Diapering 101 class.
You laughed at me when I told you not to try a Blueberry Simplex diaper unless you were prepared to love them so much that you’d want 40 when you only needed 20. You ignored me when I told you that once you had one Thirsties print you’d want one of each to complete the set. And you scoffed at me when I told you that some Applecheeks diapers are worth hundreds of dollars on the used market.
“Phft that’s ridiculous” you snickered to your friend as you left my seminar. “I’m only buying that 12 pack starter package they have on sale. I want to cloth diaper because I’m frugal after all” you promised. And you didn’t give my comments another thought.
Well now it’s 2 years later. You’ve successfully cloth diapered a baby who turned into a toddler. You started out with just that 12 pack starter package and it was perfectly fine. But curiosity got the better of you and you preferred not to do laundry every day anyway, so it didn’t hurt to get a couple more diapers in different styles just for the sake of variety.
“Woo hoo” you thought. “These cloth diapers are pretty awesome”. Your baby never had poopy blow-outs and that fluffy bum looked so gosh-darn cute. Plus look at all the money you saved. That justified buying a couple more diapers to complete that storybook set of prints you really liked. After all, if you had the Humpty Dumpty diaper didn’t you need Incy Wincy Spider too? These are classic childhood rhymes after all.
Your husband turned a blind eye to your hoarding.
You found yourself pregnant with baby #2 wondering what it would be like to cloth diaper a newborn. So you started collecting a newborn diaper stash as soon as the stick tuned positive. Meanwhile your toddler became a heavy wetter and started sleeping through the night. A perfect opportunity to try those super absorbent fitted diapers that are great for nighttime. Maybe you even tried a wool cover.
Your friends rolled their eyes that your obsession was no longer a money saving venture.
“It didn’t matter” you thought. “It wasn’t all about they money” you said. “It’s healthier for baby too”.
And now you sit, reading this, wondering how you got in so deep, trying really hard not to click the ‘BUY’ button next to that super cute Superman diaper with the detachable cape on the bum. “Tomorrow I’m going to sell off some of my diapers at that community swap meet” you think to yourself. “And then I’m going to yell at that woman who owns the diaper store for getting me hooked on these soft and fluffy diapers”.
“But I warned you”, I’ll say as you buy the new elephant print. I really, really did.
You’ll wink at me and chuckle, “At least I’m still saving the environment right?”
That you are Mama, that you are.
