ok, in all honestly, I'm nesting. Except we're moving. And living, weekdays, in my parents' attic. So....no nursery for us and this is the best I can do.
But besides that, here's some reasons I am cloth obsessed:
1) Cost. Discussed previously. In short, I think we'll save upwards of $1500 (probably more like $2000+) with cloth diapers.
That's a lot of diapers. Check out this link for some more detail. I know its biased blah blah blah, but you can't dispute that's a lot of plastic.
3) Freaky chemicals. Dry max and that gel stuff and the stuff that changes color when wet isn't exactly au-natural. And they smell funny.
4) Everything I read indicates babies in cloth are less prone to blow outs. I'm on board with something less likely to get poop all over my house.
All that said, we won't be purists - I'm sure we'll need disposables for airplanes and such, and we'll be using disposable wipes for poo at minimum. We may even end up in disposable diapers for daycare, but that is a huge unknown (and point of stress that isn't addressable given our residence situation). But at least at home, we're going to try to be green & cheap about diapers!
