While most moms-to-be don't think much about diapers, cloth diaper moms give it some serious thought. Same goes for what to do with dirty diapers. Regular moms are like, "Ummm, throw them in the trash?" Cloth diaper moms have a wash, dry, and storage routine worked out, and may have outlined that routine on a laminated sign by the washer (guilty). If you already know you're a cloth diaper mom, or if you are still trying to decide if it's for you, there are a few clear signs you're going to be a cloth diaper mom.Trust me, as a cloth diaper mom myself, I showed them all.
As soon as I found out I was pregnant, I knew I wanted to cloth diaper my baby's cute behind for a variety of reasons. I was serious about reducing my carbon footprint, my family budget was tight, and probably most importantly, they are so freaking cute. So I did hours of online research about what diapers to try and how to use them, visited a local cloth diaper store, and met tons of other cloth diaper moms.
Eight years and three fluffy adorable butts later, and I am hooked. Seriously, it's totally addictive and fun and that's even including the gross parts. I've spent hours perfecting a wash routine, hundreds of dollars on cute diapers, and have spent more than enough time worrying about whether or not a favorite diaper will stain or be outgrown than is probably healthy.
If you are expecting a baby and considering cloth diapers, be on the look out for these signs. You might just be a cloth diaper mom.
