I love cloth diapers (giveaway)

        What kind of aspiring hippy would I be if I didn't use cloth diapers on my little baby's bottom?  We started cloth diapering when our second son was 6 months old.  Now, our 3rd son is 4 months old and has been in cloth since he was two weeks old.  We love cloth diapering.  We have saved so much money, it is way easier on the enviroment,  and they are just so cute!
         The cloth is much easier on their skin.  The only diaper rash Bennett has had was when he was still wearing disposables.  When we put him in cloth it went away.
This is Bennett sporting a bright orange Bamboo Minky diaper from Kawaii Baby.

    I think our favorite thing about cloth diapers is that they just work better at holding in the poo.  I prefer to use cloth when we are travelling because that will always be when the major poop-cident happens.  If Bennett is wearing a disposable the poop is sure to go up his back.  The cloth diaper will keep it contained.

                                                                        This is Aleksei back in the day.

So,  we have used two different brands of cloth diapers.  One brand (I don't want anyone to get mad at me, so we'll call it brand X)   was a very reputable brand that you can find at most baby boutique places.  We bought them second hand but still in very good condition, for $15 a diaper.  Brand new they cost more like $25.  We then learned about Kawaii Baby diapers and they looked about the same as brand X but for only $7 a diaper so we bought some of those too.  Well,  brand X did not hold up too well,  when I finally got rid of them they were barely holding together.  Our Kawaii babies are still going strong.  I still have the 10 that I bought for Aleksei and I bought 15 more for Bennett.  So,  I have a whopping 25 diapers, it's a luxury,  it's in no way a neccesity.  15 diapers is a nice amount.

  1. These are cute! I can always use another cloth diapers. We use giggle life, and have been super impressed with them. No Leaks, no messes, and we got 24 bamboo diapers and 48 inserts for under 200! It has been 8 months and they are like new, minus some fade. Super impressed!
    The pre folds are certainly a lot easier then the old fashioned cloth I used with my first two babes!!!
