So here it is:
Today I took the plunge and purchased a cloth diaper stash. I was super stoked to find out that little old Newark, Ohio has a cloth diapering store. It is called Tickleberry Moon.
I bought the 24 BumGenius package!
Yay! All look at all that new fluff. In this picture we have 24 BumGenius one sized pocket diapers, 4 large hemp inserts, 2 large diaper pails, 2 wet bags, 2 ounces of tea tree oil, 1 ounce of lavender oil, 6 washable breast pads, 1 bag of Charlie's laundry soap, sample size of Rockin Green laundry soap.
Yes, I am that big of a dork that I had to dress up my oldest daughter's Cabbage Patch Kid doll to see how they work and look.
I'm thinking these may be a little too big on a brand newborn baby, but that's ok, we were planning on using disposables for the first couple weeks to allow the cord to fall off and the sticky tar poops to stop.
I am also glad that we didn't buy newborn sized clothes. We definitely need the room in the rump for the cloth diapers!
I have never been more excited about changing a diaper before!
I took some more pictures of a diaper as I was playing and practicing stuffing/sizing today:
