ClOtH wOrLd

We are entering the cloth world!!!!! and very excited about it :)
All the supplies are ordered and now it is just the wait game
should all be here and ready to start in a month (the shipping on this stuff is ridiculous)

We have two that we bought on a local swap group that have never been used but since we dont have soap or anything yet we still have to wait.  Of course I had to try it on his cute little bum cheekers and of course he looked so stinkin cute!!!!

A fun fact I read browsing the internet when I was in limbo trying to decide weather or not to take the plunge....... ssoo

"Cloth diapers save us a LOT of money!
On average, parents will spend between $3,000 and $4,000 per child for disposable diapers. We spent just over $400 for 24 cloth diapers. These diapers get washed twice a week. It costs approximately $1.25 to wash each load of cloth diapers (this includes detergent, water, and energy.) So, we will end up spending between $260 and $325 on washing the diapers for a grand total of $725 (at the most) to get our child through diapers. I don’t know about you, but if I have a chance to save over $2,000 I’m going to jump on that opportunity!"

SO with that being said we are giving it a whirl and seeing what happens.  I am very excited about it and think that it could really work for our family.  
Amazed at how much more common it is becoming too, however, I still know we will get the looks and the confused thoughts of why on earth anyone would want to do this! But I really think that these people have a lack of knowledge of how different the cloth world is now and all the improvement.  Talk about "high tech"!!! :) 
Look forward to sharing more as our adventure really begins
