I have always stood by my opinion that cloth diapers aren't any harder than disposables, recently with the stress in my life I started using the disposables we had stashed in our closet for when the kids go to grandpa and grandmas for the weekend. I said heck with the laundry for now and went with disposables-whatever. I am fine with it.
I also started thinking about parents who are super busy, older kids, full time jobs (out of the house/in the house jobs), younger kids, stress, daycare, nanny's and anything in between that have thrown out the idea of cloth because of their hectic life. I can sympathize with you. When that one more load of laundry is going to make you scream or put you over the top and make you overwhelmed...I get it...
I'll just say, if you are considering cloth at all and fear yourself in the previous "boat" lets take a few steps together. Even cloth part time helps in several ways, financially, environmentally, and cute fluffy butt-ily. It will be okay. I plan to start putting Mari back in her SoftBums tomorrow (after I wash the stash tonight), probably not full time but in the mornings and after nap. Part time. I know it will help her rash on her caboose, and it will cut the disposables we use in half-saving me half the money. It will also mean I have laundry to do half as often--which is one less thing on my plate every few days.
You don't need a lot to start cloth part time. Give it a shot-half the money half the laundry...lets try!
Who out there uses cloth part time? Any tips?
