As my friend from this blog one-ups us all by skipping the mauling crowd at Target on Black Friday while she sits home and sews beautiful aprons for her friends this Christmas (I imagine her sitting by the fire in hand knitted wool socks while her content 16mo old reads quietly at her feet... in a rocking chair), I thought of how my family's own carbon footprint was affecting this planet. I only thought of that for a minute, and then I thought more about our savings account (who am I kidding, there isn't one) and finally bit the bullet and bought these cloth diapers for Sunnylee: www.gdiapers.com This same friend is the one who convinced me to cloth to begin with; she cloth diapers her one year old every few days, or whenever they stay home, or when its convenient for her. That schedule sounds very manageable to me. It cuts down on how often she has to buy disposables.
I am discovering cloth diapers with my friend, from this blog, who actually turned me on to this brand, gDiapers, awhile ago; she researched cloth for her upcoming arrival who is due this month. Since my own Baby #2 is on its way soon, and with that has already started with me purchasing two different sized disposable diapers, it kills me to spend so much $$ on something we just throw away when I am home most of my life right now, & in close proximity to the washing machine. One of my jobs as a stay-at-home-mom, a mom who's business degree shouldn't just be put on hold for years and years, is to save this family money. I do this in a million brilliant ways :) & this is the beginning of a new way. I am not against 'sposies, as disposables are cutely called on mommy-blogs, and will continue to use them when the Gligs are on the go. And when babysitters are... in our lives. One day. When we find one. Where is she?
I am testing out Sunnylee before the next Glig arrives. Since we know Sunny pretty well, and we know her diapering schedule very well, then the transition should be easy. And if we like cloth, then we can easily cloth baby #2 as well. When that time comes. gDiapers are in transit right now to the Glig House. We cant wait to put these cute diapies on Sunny.
