I dream about cloth diapers...

I'm serious....I do.  I lay in bed at night and think about what I want to try next, what I should sell, what combinations of diapers and doublers would work best...it literally consumes my mind.  I would even go so far as to say that cloth diapering, for me, is a hobby.  It's great to have a hobby, but when you're working and in Grad school, your hobby should fall to the wayside every once in a while...

But, it doesn't.  So I'm starting a blog so I can share everything I've learned along the way and hopefully try more new things and share about those also.  It's just fun and I love that I'm not creating my own private landfill full of stinky diapers!

My journey with cloth diapers started last summer when my daughter was about 7 months old.  Since then I've tried prefolds with covers, pockets, fitteds, PUL, fleece, wool, microfiber, bamboo, hemp...the list goes on.  In future posts I will explain each diapering system I've used along with Pros and Cons, and a few pictures for good measure.  I will also post tutorials on how to use different types of cloth diapers for those just starting out.  The options out there can be overwhelming and confusing!  And just when you thought you found the perfect diaper for your child, something will inevitably go wrong...diaper stink, repelling issues, etc.  I will address those as well.

So stay tuned, there's lots to come!

And thanks for joining me on this journey!
