I thought it would be fun to discuss our very first cloth diapers? Can you remember yours? I bet you do!
My very first cloth diapers were a mix of MommysTouch OS and FuzziBunz sz Medium pockets which were all well worn but still in decent shape. I remember when I first decided to try cloth, I was being coached by a couple moms from my 'moms of multiples' message board and one mom said she'd sell me some so that I could try them.
I didn't request photos, I knew and trusted the mom, and I trusted that the price she set was appropriate as well. I remember approaching my husband "Honey, we're about to run out of disposable diapers and I think I'd like to try cloth..." He agreed but when I told him we'd have to buy them he reacted as if he'd thought I was going to make them appear out of thin air! Men! So he ended up agreeing AND understanding, and my cloth diaper addicted friend sent the package.
I checked the mailbox multiple times a day, stalked the mailman, and worried that the package was just NEVER going to get here. That seemed like the longest 3-4 days ever!
When the package finally arrived I was ecstatic. The diapers were great, of course at that time I had never had new diapers or inserts so I had nothing to compare them to, but they looked good to me.
I immediately put the boys into the new diapers, I know, I totally should have washed them first but they looked and smelled clean and I was in a hurry to try them. OK, who am I kidding, I was in a hurry to put them in the diapers and take pictures...of course! (The photo I am including in this post is one of the photos from my first day cloth diapering with my very first cloth diapers ever.)
And so began my addiction to cloth diapers. The handful of pocket diapers I had bought lasted me less than a couple hours due to having two babies in cloth and I think I may have washed and dried them 2-3 times that day just so I could keep using them.
So that's it, the next day I was online arranging the details of my next fluffy purchase!
Do you remember your first diapers? Were you instantly addicted like I was? I'd love for you to share your stories and comments.
