Cloth Diapers - Have I Gone Completely MAD?!

I was browsing some random blogs today and ran across one where the mom decided to try out cloth diapers. She linked something called the Bumgenius, an all in one diaper that works much like a disposable, but you wash it. People, I'm a heartbeat away from ordering one, and I think I'm totally out of my head. I found myself surfing cloth diapering sites a few weeks ago, and it shocked me to think I was actually putting out feelers. The idea has always disgusted me. I lived with my brother and his family for a brief period after graduating college, and they used cloth sometimes on my nephew. I remember watching my brother cleaning one out and thinking, that is the nastiest thing I've ever seen. Fast forward to today. I think I could use the Bumgenius and actually like it. I don't know if it's because I went through a month of cleaning poopy underwear when Wyatt was potty training and survived, or because I'm just a little more adventurous now, but I'm really thinking about this one. I found a site that offers a money back guarantee if you buy one and try it, then hate it. I'm thinking about it, I really am...

That is interesting. I'd consider using them too, except for the fact that I am too lazy to empty the diaper and keep around to wash. Not to mention Dave probably won't be on board.

More power to you if this is something you want to try...

I, on the other hand, have a hard enough time emptying out the diaper pail before it explodes! Not to mention keeping up on my current amount of weekly laundry.

Besides, the Germans already have me recyling like a mad woman... :)

Hello Navy Sub wife from an Air Force Wife! I came across your blog while procrastinating from my own writing. We also did cloth diapers with both our munchkins. We used Kushies. They have flush-able liners that you can buy seperately. you just lift the mess out, lush it away, and wash the diaper. Pretty nice. We figured that not only did we save Hundreds on diapers but we helped out the environment too. Good Luck!
