You Want What?

Posted by CDB Guest on 10/7/2011 to Cloth vs. Disposables

When you are expecting a baby, a bunch of things run through your mind.  Among millions of things you check off your list of essentials for your precious little bundle are diapers.  One big decision that is usually overlooked is which route you may choose to diaper your baby. 

Most people automatically assume disposables and ask you "are you going to use Huggies or Pampers?"  There is an option that more parents are considering: cloth.  Some people get discouraged with all the negative feedback from people (and believe me, there is a lot!).  Some people buy a few cloth diapers but for various reasons, end up using disposables and many others try cloth diapers and absolutely love them!
