Hi. My name is Angie, and until recently I was scared to cloth diaper. A few weeks ago I was oooing and ahhhing over some adorable cloth we had at babySTEALS and wishing I was daring enough to try it. Even though I’m a first-time mom, working at STEALS.com I have been very exposed to the world of cloth diapers. I have heard all the great reasons to cloth diaper.
- It’s cheaper
- It’s eco-friendly
- It’s cuter
- It’s better on baby’s skin
- It makes for faster potty training
- It’s easier that it looks
Just to name a few. But here I was, a mom totally exposed to it with tons of experienced friends and coworkers, and still scared to try. I figured if I was still nervous about it, there are plenty of others who are too. And so I used my fear for good and figured I’d use it as an opportunity to learn everything you need to know to get started — the tips, the tricks, the dos, the don’ts, and the why the hell should I wash this instead of toss it?
