I thought a kid being Potty Trained Meant LESS Laundry

Did someone lie to me-

Potty training was actually pretty simple here. I just waited until I thought Sophia was really ready.

Six Days

My poor cloth diapers! I am a bit of a baby-er when it comes to them. I use loop fabric on the tabs to keep them from forming chains in the wash. I hang to dry. I’ve even been known to use a lingerie bag when washing my ‘special’ cloth diapers. How could they survive […]

What’s the biggest hurdle faced while trying to lure people over to cloth diapers? They think it’s gross. At first… I did too. Of course that was when I thought everything about kids was gross.
