I did it. We are cloth diapering! I always wanted to cloth diaper, but when the time came I started to chicken out. I have a close family friend who works at Buy Buy Baby, so I used her discount to get six Bum Genius Freetime cloth diapers. I knew that if I was going to cloth diaper, I probably wanted to use all in ones to make it easier. So far, it's been very simple. The six diapers are enough to get through an entire day of diapering, and I'm just doing laundry every evening. Since Greer is exclusively breast-fed, all I do is throw the diapers straight into the wash, let it run and that's it. I may feel differently when her poop changes after she start eating solids. :) I've already picked up two more (exchanged some clothes she wasn't going to wear), and I plan to get another six, and that should be more than enough to get us through two days. They are definitely a bit bulky, but she doesn't seem to mind and they look pretty cute on too. Besides the cost savings over the lifetime of diapering her and potential future siblings, I love that she has not had a single blow out since we started using cloth. And those were, unfortunately, quite regular occurrences.
I also returned to my Paleo eating ways as a result of being disgusted with my body. A little more than two weeks in, and I've already lost five or six pounds. Plus I just feel better, and my WOD performance at CrossFit improved drastically. Too bad I can't keep going to CrossFit once I go back to work; there's just not enough time. Thinking I might resort to Jillian Michaels workouts for a few months and then maybe go to back CrossFit when Greer starts going to bed around seven.
So I'm officially a cloth diapering, whole food eating, mostly natural product using (Matt boycotted the use of natural laundry detergent) hippie mama. And I'm cool with that. :)
