Diaper Duty

For my early birthday present/Mother's Day/new baby Chris and my sister Tami bought me cloth diapers and all the fun stuff that goes with it to get me going. They just arrived yesterday and I have to say I'm pretty excited to get those cute colorful diapers on my babies bums.

Chris wants me to sign a contract declaring now that the cloth diapers are purchased, I will NOT go back to disposables. I think he's a little skeptical of my cloth diapering abilities (mostly the laundry). They are a pretty pricey deal to get started but I am excited about the money we will save. From my research you save $2,000-$3,000 over a 3 year period per child. . . and since we are planning on making our very own Paxman soccer team, I think that's a pretty good deal.

You will LOVE cloth diapering. We used disposables right after Brooke came home from the hospital while we were getting used to things, but I would never go back. The laundry thing becomes second nature - you'll do great!
