We're going cloth!

After much deliberation...asking loads of questions (thanks, friends) and doing a trial run this week, we are switching over to cloth diapers!  I can't wait for our order to arrive so we can really get started.  We've gone back and forth about it (as you might know) quite a bit.  Before she was born, I was pretty sure about them, or at least that we'd switch back and forth.  But the past few months, the disposables have been so...well, easy.  And most have indicator lines (which is, let's be honest, really nice).  So a friend let us borrow a few and we have one of our own, all of which I've been using the past few days.  I've been pretty amazed by how easy it is.  And with an intense amount of school expenses coming up, it should help us out financially.  We won't be asking anyone who watches her to use them if they're not comfortable with it (or if they just don't care to) and we'll still use disposables when we travel, so those indicator lines won't be complete strangers.  And we've got quite a large stock of those to switch off with for now.  Anyways, our diaper of choice will be the bumGenius 4.0 One-Size pocket diaper (and the artist series above).  Ellie's tush is going to look pretty stylin'.  I'm really excited.  I'll keep you guys updated on how it goes...

p.p.s.  They're based in St. Louie...isn't that fun?
