I never expected I would use cloth diapers... The idea never even crossed my mind until my husband brought it up during our first pregnancy. His parents used them with him and he thought it would be a great idea. I thought he was insane. Seriously, who uses cloth now? Gross... and a lot of work right? I did a little research and set out to prove to him that it wouldn't save us any money anyway. I found an opinion piece or two and he said that was fine and didn't bring it up again.
Skip forward a few months... Our daughter was about 5 months old and two things
That was a fun conversation lol. I hate being wrong...
We switched to cloth soon after and haven't looked back. At this point (2 more babies later) we've been through several different styles of diapers, different wash routines, but I haven't once regretted switching.
Part of it is still the savings... a big part of it is still the savings. That's not even near all of it though. I love keeping chemicals away from my kids and that its more environmentally friendly. Not having to run to the store when we're out is nice too. They aren't nearly the amount of work I thought they'd be, especially since I have way fewer leak and blowout issues with them than I did disposable. And can't forget the cute factor! I have fallen in love with how cute these things can be.
