Well, my determination to use cloth diapers has only gained momentum during my pregnancy. I spoke with people who actually use cloth diapers, (thanks, Conni), and I read blogs that describe others' experiences using cloth diapers--and all accounts are positive. Cloth diapers have certainly changed since our parents' day--they're really cute now! And environmentally friendly, and money-saving, and easier on a baby's sensitive skin...

This last detail is what has sold my husband on giving cloth diapers a try. The newborn Pampers diapers we have been using on Jones since his birth make his skin red and sometimes stick to his little bottom.

So, our journey will begin soon--we just ordered 6 Bum Genius diapers and received some Growing Greens Organic cloth diapers from our registry at KD's Treehouse, as well as a couple Funky Butts diapers. James is going to make our own version of the "Potty Pail," and then we'll be ready to go.
Here's a great post on cloth diapers from the blog Jen Loves Kev. This post really helped me figure out what products to use and how the routine goes with cloth diapers--the rinsing, cleaning, etc.
I'll keep you updated on how the cloth diaper experience unfolds for us!
