Saving the World


One Diaper at a Time...




Ok, I know that cloth diapers aren't actually going to save the world (its actually arguable whether or not they're any more environmentally friendly than "green" diapers), but I love them.

Why?

~They cost less than paper diapers (even the really fancy cloth ones).
~We think they're just as easy as disposables.
~They feel great.
~You never have to run to the store and get a package of them (and that's great, cause in Portola it's sooo expensive).
~We're not filling up the land fills.
~Cloth diapers are SO much cuter than disposables.
~They don't have harsh chemicals in them.
~Sati never gets diaper rash from her Fuzzi Bunz cloth diapers.
~They seem to be super comfortable. 
~they save more money with every kid... I'm not saying that I want a whole bunch of little ones just to get my money out of them though.


There are a few draw backs 
to the cloth diapers.  We use paper diapers when we travel, because some people don't like using their washers for our babies diapers.  Cloth diapers can also cause a lot more laundry.  

Over all I really like them... if you would like to check ours out you should visit the fuzzi Bunz web sight.  There are other kinds of cloth diapers that I've heard good things about too.  So, I may not saving the world, but I feel good about using cloth diapers.

so, we are totally going to buy these guys! they look super awesome and we have been trying to figure out which ones we wanted to get. do the new ones come with inserts, or is it just the diaper, and if they do, are the inserts reusable or do you have to buy more? also, what size and how many do you recommend that we get? hmm let the parenting questions begin (or have they already? hahaha)

The inserts are reusable... I would get size small for starters, but you'll have to buy the next size up most likely when your little one is 5-8 months old. The waist of the small diapers still fits Sati, but they're too short to do any good now.

There are also one size fits all diapers. I've heard good things about them, but they're bulkier than our fuzzi bunz.

The fuzzy bunz web sight should give you all the information that you need to know.
