Babies need diapers. Even the die-hard Elimination Communication crowd has a few diapers stashed away somewhere.
With my first child, diapers were a no-brainer. Take what the hospital offers, buy whatever you have coupons for or whatever is cheapest from there. With my second child, I pretty much followed the same guidelines until she was about a year old. That’s when I read that people still practiced the archaic form of diapering a child known as CLOTH DIAPERING. *gasp*
At this particular juncture in my life, I was searching for what good Christian mamas who aspire to have large families do all day. Apparently, they were all cloth diapering! (ok, so I was a little misinformed) My biggest trepidation was the fear of having to dunk poopy diapers all day long, but if it would make me a better mama, then I would do it. I did not want to somehow be “less-than”, so I began diligently researching cloth diapering. Well, come to find out cloth diapers were no longer prefolds, pins and plastic pants. Oh sure, they still sold a large number of those, but there were tons of new-fangled dipes hitting the market that were supposed to make cloth diapering a breeze.
