So why do
Simple, it's cute.
The saving money part is great, yes. But I just love the pretty colors and how I can match Kendall's diaper with whatever she is wearing.
I try to be "green" but do I actually believe all the all the hype of disposables being bad for the planet. Not really.
Do I think it takes 500+ years for a disposable to decompose? No. How is that even proven anyway? Disposables haven't been around for 500 years.
Was I influenced by anyone to start using cloth? Sure, aren't we all in some way? Whether a friend told you about it, you researched it and you were influenced by what you found. Something or someone influences you. Do I use cloth because someone else does? Honestly, that's just dumb. Seriously. Dumb.
Why would I spend my money (Rockin Green, electric bill, water bill, on diapers, disposable inserts, extra washable inserts) and my time on something that I don't want to do? Why would I accept doing 3-4 more loads of laundry a week on just diapers alone, organizing, folding, stuffing. Why would I do all that just because someone else does it?
I cloth because I like to.
This time last year I thought cloth was the most disgusting thing EVER. Was I educated? No. Was I only making that assumption by looking at pictures and just the thought of using cloth? Yep. Then I began using them and I changed my mind.
Isn't it a good thing when you change your mind to a positive decision?
Well apparently when I personally do that it means I am just coping someone.
Well guess what. OH WELL!
I love cloth! <3
When we have more kids next year then they will have cloth on their little butts from day 1 and not because someone else does.
The end :)
**EDIT/ For those who asked. We have about 6-7 different brands in the house. I use Apple Cheeks then Charlie Banana. When those two brands are dirty I usually do laundry and throw Kendall in FuzziBunz while the wash is going. Other brands are good but I prefer Apple Cheeks over anything.
Hubby hates Apple Cheeks but loves Charlie Banana more. /EDIT**
