Haha I am so wishy washy when it comes to cloth diapering... but I finally made a purchase!

I have bounced back and forth in my choice of cloth diaper styles. Instead of updating my old blog post to reflect my new choice, I decided to just create a new post.

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:

  1. So what do you have left to get? Just some more inserts? Are you going to do cloth wipes, too, so that you can just throw it all in the pail together? I'm so excited for you! :-)

  2. I am still trying to convince Scott to do the flannel wipes... no dice so far...
