20 Weeks---"Green Guilt"
So, about an hour ago, I ordered my cloth diaper start kit and I'm scared.
My co-worker Hannah, is a huge advocate of cloth diapers and assures me that they're just as easy as disposables, but I'm not convinced. I just can't stand letting my carbon footprint grow any larger.
Because of my hesitation, I decided to start with "Econobum". It's a fairly new cloth diapering system, and the starter pack was only $60.00. Most popular cloth diapers such as Bum Genius starter kits can start as high as $500.00. Yes, I know that you are supposed to save money in the long run, but that's a big chunk of change to shove out at once.
My "green guilt" isn't the only reason I am going to try cloth. Pampers diapers have been all over the news for giving infants chemical burns. Chemical burns, seriously? I use Pampers! I truly did not do my research when choosing disposable diapers. I had no idea there were chemicals involved. Yes, I admit looking back now, it was very naive of me.
I would love to hear any feedback from you Mom's out there, and check back here to read about my new venture!
