Cloth diapers

Hi, my name is Jill and I use cloth diapers. TODAY. "Isn't that a thing of the past?", you ask. No, actually there are a lot of moms I know that use cloth diapers. After the initial investment, it is a great way to save money. I have enough diapers that I wash them about once a week. I have a diaper pail that we got when Rebekah was born, as a gift from an Aunt & Uncle that sold Amway. It is a nice pail because it has a lid & a handle, as well as a place to put a scented refill for a little scent pad. It helps a little bit. I tried diaper service, and it was similar-- putting the diapers in a pail/ bag and changing them out once a week. I thought, I could do that. The smell has never bothered me much. My mom used cloth diapers on us when we were kids, and she used diaper pins. But today the diaper covers all have velcro, are easy to fold & place inside the cover. I bought a lot of covers online when Rebekah & Caleb were babies. All four of my kids have worn them. Diaper covers come in a variety of sizes & colors. In my photo you can see some of the ones I have. I had a lot of people give me some that they were not using or were done with, so I have a LOT. I figure I save 10 cents each time I use a cloth diaper, and they are better for the environment- reusing, right?
