Recently while scouring the web for more information on cloth diapers I came across a new blog called Cloth Diaper Challenge. It is a new blog but contains handy information about different diapers. Each post features a new diaper, and all you need to know about it. I asked the writer of Cloth Diaper Challenge if she would be interested in sharing with us a little about her cloth diapering adventure. Here is what she shared:
Cloth diapering is my obsession. I am proud to say it! When I started out two years ago I never thought it would get this bad. I decided from the moment I found out I was pregnant with #2 that I was going to use cloth. I hate to admit that I never knew any different than using disposable diapers with my oldest child. I spent my entire nine months researching and learning about the different cloth diapering systems and brands. It was like learning a new language! AIO's, AI2's, Fitteds, Flats, Prefolds, Pocket, OS, my brain was filled with too much fluffy information. It didn't put me off, but I was terrified of 1) not buying the "right" kind of diapers for my baby, 2) not washing them correctly or 3) getting leaks. It seems like every forum started on DiaperSwappers was something having a problem with stink issues, fit issues, stain issues, leak issues or something else. I did my research, collected a variety of different brands and types of cloth diapers and prepared myself for becoming a mother of two and using cloth diapers. I also wanted to add in my family thought I was nuts and so did my husband. I bought my first batch without him knowing, and when he found out he said I would get bored of it after a week but he helped my dye them. I convinced him that if he let me do this I would not make him change a diaper. I find him changing a diaper once in a while now, and telling me why he likes the brand he choose to put on, and he supported me when I decided to not go back to work and instead start a cloth diaper business.
