I am getting pretty bummed out about how I don't use cloth diapers anymore.
Although my current fantasy item that I pretend I am saving up for is this stroller, (Santa?? Anyone?? PLEASE???) what I really would do with a couple hundred bucks is buy some nice fluffy soft wonderful cloth diapers for baby Charlie.
I used cloth from fall 2000 with baby Mickey until 2004/early 2005 when Casey outgrew what we had, and I was pretty wiped out being pregnant with Charlie and babysitting and homeschooling somehow while puking my guts out (even took myself to the good old hospital at 9 weeks for the always fun hyperemesis for a night of IV fluids and phenergan) I just dropped out of the cloth-diapering-a-toddler realm and never got back full time. In a lifestlye where things like hearing the wrong commercials or smelling chapsticks sent me running to vomit my eyes out, I wasn't about to haul pails of poop and pee out to the laundry room every day...sorry but true.
We had some Fuzzi Bunz for Charlie but they were used, and they were size medium and they only fit him for a few weeks and the previous owner didn't take good care of them and so they weren't absorbent and they smelled funky and I think I ruined their absorbency even further by trying so many methods of deodorizing them :(
But now I miss it and I feel so badly that we have 8 bucks every Friday for new disposables but not 2 or 3 hundred for a decent set of cloth diapes for the dear baby.
