Cloth Diaper 101 Month is here!

Well, who would have thought that September would be here already?! After our Pregnancy/Birth month in July and our Breastfeeding month in August, what better topic to cover than cloth diapers…it seems like a natural progression, huh?

Cloth dipes have long been misunderstood, and there is SO much information out there on them! I mean, do you know what style is right for you? How do you wash them? What about the poop? How can I do it on the cheap? Where do I even begin........?????

I know these are the questions you may be asking, because it wasn’t that long ago that I was asking the exact same ones. I didn’t even know where to begin, let alone all the little details. I didn’t know what I didn’t know and it was all so overwhelming. All I really knew was that I wanted to start saving us some money and I had made the decision to switch.

Luckily, Elegant Mommy holds a Diapapallooza every couple months, so I knew where I could go to try a couple different things for much less expensively than purchasing them all new. I also knew I wanted to make my own once I figured things out a bit, so I’ll share about my experiences with that later on this month as well.

And yes, I use any opportunity to show pictures of my cutie-pies...wouldn't you? ;)

Anyway, whether you’re new to cloth or thinking about making the switch, stick with us this month and hopefully we can help you with any questions you may have. As always, if there is something specific you are looking for information on or have questions about, just let us know here, on our Facebook page, or you can email me directly at media[at]elegantmommy[dot]com.
