Lisa of The Penny Wise Chick
My name is Lisa, but in the bloggy world,
I also go by The Penny Wise Chick!
I’m a stay at home mom to a 9 (almost 10) month old darling little boy and my hubby is in the military. I’m very new to cloth diapering and have been doing it for about a month now. I really wanted to cloth diaper when my son was born, but there were so many options that I was overwhelmed and really gave up before I began. I used disposables with him and didn’t ever
really have a problem – except for the cost.
I decided to start cloth diapering after meeting a friend
who cloth diapered and after another friend
had a cloth diapering party.
I met several women who cloth diapered and was able
to ask tons of questions and really see and touch the diapers.
After a few days of thinking about it, I decided now was the
time to try it out and see if cloth diapering was for me.
I bought just 3 Fuzzibunz to start and see how we did.
I was nervous, but I figured 3 cloth diapers wasn’t a
huge cost and if it was horrible I could stop there and go back to disposables.
At the time I had no idea how
much fun cloth diapering could be!
So far cloth diapering hasn’t affected family and friends
all that much since we live so far away from family.
With my husband being in the military we just moved
to a new state (New Mexico) and have
only been here about 8 months.
Our family is on the East Coast so none of them have
even seen our little guy in cloth yet. I’ve told my mom
about it quite a bit, but I think she’s wondering why
I switched when disposables worked great for us.
My mom used cloth diapers with my
brothers back when diapers
were swished in the toilet, and pins were used instead of snaps.
Cloth diapering has come a long way and although
I never cloth diapered using pins; I can only
imagine that challenge with a squirming baby!
I don’t know if I can really say what my go-to diaper is just yet.
I’m still so new to cd’ing that I’m pretty happy with
all of my diapers so far.
I have FuzziBunz, Happy Heinys, BumGenius,
GoGreenPocket Diaper, Swaddlebees,
and I just received my GroVia diapers
that I have yet to try out. (They’re in the wash right now
getting all prepped and ready!) I can’t wait to use them!!
No tips or advice for newbies yet, since I’m a newbie myself!
But I will say that I’m very surprised how quickly
I’ve become such a fan of cloth diapering.
I love washing them, and I love
hanging them to dry even more.
Every time I hang them outside I want to take a
picture of how pretty they look blowing in the summer breeze.
