Since I love using cloth diapers so much, and since (to me) it seems like an obvious choice when it comes to baby care, it's only natural that I want to give them to friends of mine who are expecting, or who have children in diapers. Maybe part of my reasons for giving cloth diapers away is because I no longer really need any more, so it's a way for me to feed into my little "diaper obsession". Mostly, it's because I just love sharing anything I can that will make taking care of a baby easier for a mom I know and love.
Giving cloth diapers poses a risk.
Cloth diapers are an investment - one well spent if they're used, and money wasted if the recipient of the gift lets them sit on a shelf, unopened and gathering dust. I can't imagine a bigger waste of a baby gift than unused cloth diapers.
