Cloth vs. Disposable diapers
When Jon and I were thinking that we would be matched with one toddler boy, we had decided that we would try using cloth diapers. I know, I know, maybe I don't know what we are getting into, but here are the advantages/reasons why cloth diapers would be a good fit for us:
1) Huge Savings.
2) Investment already made: My sis-in-law has scads of "Bumgenius" and "Happy Hiney" diapers that we could use.
3) Better for environment (although I have heard the amount of water used to constantly be washing diapers is just as bad for the environment?)
Now that we know we have two girls coming, is it crazy to consider cloth diapers? Maybe if I would use disposable at night and cloth during the day? What do you think? Janel sent me a link the other day on a great price on diapers and formula and I started doing the math for two! Whoa. This baby stuff adds up!
Dilemma #2: The Diaper Genie:
If we decide to use disposable diapers (in at least some capacity), what do you think of the "Diaper Genie" concept? Is an off-brand okay? Is this a necessity for the nursery?
Please, pour out your wisdom! :)
