When I first met Erin of The Humbled Homemaker, I was immediately taken by her friendly personality and her dedication to provide only the best material and resources for her readers.
So it was exciting to watch her journey through the process of putting together this excellent e-book for anyone who is curious about cloth diapers or who simply want to learn something new about cloth diapering.
As many other mamas, I was initmidated by cloth diapering. Would they leak? Were they high maintenance? Did they really work? I wanted to try cloth because I knew it would be easier on the budget and of course I’m always interested in any and all things natural and chemical-free.
When I first started cloth diapering, I immediately became addicted. We still use paper dipes from time to time, but there’s something very quaint and even comforting about stuffing a fresh load of warm, clean pockets and inserts.
While there was an instant delight from wrapping my baby’s bum in soft, plush, comfortable cotton, wading through all of the choices–all in ones, pockets, fitteds, covers, etc. was certainly daunting. And then there were the different types of inserts–cotton, bamboo, etc. Oh and I had to use the correct laundry detergent! So many choices!
The cool thing about Erin’s book is that it takes a novice step-by-step through the process of switching to cloth diapers.
She covers topics from discussing the benefits of using cloth to sorting through the different kinds, helping the reader narrow down what will work best for the family’s specific needs. Other topics include using cloth while potty training, traveling, nighttime wearing and even addressing concerns and questions from other family members.
Once you get started with cloth, I’ll warn you that you’ll likely want to move quickly to build your stash, especially with all of the super cute options out there, and she even includes building that stash while being on a budget!
If this e-book was available when we started cloth diapering years ago, it would’ve saved me hundreds of dollars!
