Cloth Diapers 101 Talk

Hello all!

Just read the latest post from Jenny of Chronicles of a Nursing Mom on Real Diaper Week 2012 and I'm excited to learn that Jenny is organizing a talk to be held at the Medela House, on April 21, 2012, 1:30 pm. Interested mommies can sign up here.

I've written about using cloth diapers in a previous post, and although we have yet to transition to full cloth diapering, we're doing well in terms of using it during the daytime. Our yaya was brave enough to try to use cloth diapers during the night (I say brave because that means she'll have to wake up every hour to change diapers since J pees a lot more during the night.), but it didn't really work because J would object to being moved around in the middle of the night, so to save them both the trouble, I told her to just use the disposables, but only at night. During the day though, we're on full cloth diaper mode.

My primary reason for trying out cloth diapers was the effort to cut back on our diaper expense. It has cut down by a lot. A pack of diapers now lasts us for 10 days instead of the usual 5 or 6, so I'd say we've slashed that expense by half at least. Our bank account is greatly appreciative, and I'm hoping that by a month after birth, we can transition Little C to cloth diapers full time. I'll let you know how that goes.

I know cloth diapering is a scary thing to try for most mommies and I have to admit that I was intimidated at first. There's a lot of trial and error involved, since each kid has different routines and different preferences, but once you get the hang of it, it's actually manageable. And as with any other new endeavor, the more information you have about it, the more empowered you'll be when you start trying it.

I do have a lot of questions about cloth diapering and I'm really glad that we now have a session where we can learn more about it. So mommies, I hope to see you at the Cloth Diapers 101 talk at the Medela House!
