Dirty Diapers II ... Trying cloth!

At my favourite children's consignment store Emma's Closet I found a huge lot of Motherease cloth diapers - 2 dozen diapers and a dozen doublers for about $100, thats about a quarter of the price if they were bought new! It seems at inspection of these diapers that the previous owner of them washed them up to "fluff" them and prepare them for diapering, and then backed down. They were in "like new" condition... WOW... what a steal!

Still $100 is a steep investment, and I hesitated and asked the clerk to hold them for me while I did a bit more research to see if this was a purchase I really wanted to make. I scowered the manufacturers website, I took advice from My online Moms group, I hit forums that rated different cloth diapers and read every bad review I could find, I searched about resale value on kijiji and Craigslist And found that these really are a favourite cloth diaper for family's that do cloth diapering, and if it doesn't work out for me, I can re sell them for double what Emma's closet was asking for them.

We bought a couple vynil covers from Sears... Kushies brand name. They aren't the best for covers,as in they could let out more heat and breath better, but they work for now and get us started.

So this is cloth diapering day 1! My conscience is feeling cleaner, and hopefully this will be healthy for Aedan...I'll let you know how it goes!
