New Fluff

So, I discovered that there is a cloth diaper store here in the Dallas area. Not quite sure why it surprised me, but it did. After some pleading, hubby agreed to check it out with me. It was rather surreal, seeing a whole shop filled with things I’ve only seen on-line.

We agreed on a purchase, which stretched our budget to an uncomfortable tightness. (Turns out that 2 days later we had to replace all 4 tires on the car – sigh.) We bought 4 diapers, ranging from $10 to $17 each – 2 Thirsties AIO’s, 1 Asunta pocket, and 1 Sweetpeas pocket. It’s been an interesting experience, trying new styles and brands. I understand now why internet parenting blogs suggest that you start your cloth stash with a wide variety. The differences in fit and quality are pretty remarkable, even after just a few days of trying them out.

    Definitely great advice to start off slow with variety. I know too many mamas who buy 20 of one kind only to be unhappy with fit/absorbency/style etc.
