Cloth Diapers!

Well, I am really getting in over my head, but I'm actually really excited about it! I have thought long and hard and researched quite a bit, and I have officially decided to try cloth diapers with our new baby who is on his way. Cloth diapers are not like they used to be. They have come such a long way and they are so cute! The diapers I decided to go with are called "Gdiapers." I found out about a great deal from one of my favorite websites Babycheapskate.com and I snagged them. They are actually environmentally friendly diapers (I'll let you read about them online), but they now offer a cloth alternative, which really got me interested. And they are super cute! The usual price for the "gpants" are about $18 each and I ended up getting a 6 pack (retails for $70) for only $40. So that's about $6.67 per gpant. Great savings! I bought size small and medium to get me started. My mom was kind enough to buy me the size large, so I may even try them with Nathan. I just got mine in the mail yesterday. We'll most likely use disposables initially and probably while traveling, but my hope is to do cloth the majority of the time. I'm excited to save a ton of money on diapers and help the environment too. Did you know that disposable diapers take 500 years to decompose! Yikes!

I know a few friends who have gone cloth and have been very pleased. I know there will be a bit of a learning curve and I may get frustrated and grossed out at times-but I think it will be worth it. Wish me luck! Any input or advice would be greatly appreciated. Hey and pass the word along. Maybe its a good option for you too! Babies R Us supposedly sell these gDiapers too, so I may try to snag a few good deals there too. I'll let you know how it goes once we get started.
