Using Cloth Diapers Real Stories from Real Moms

When I first started using cloth diapers, I didn’t know anyone else who did. I had wished there was someone who could just explain it all to me in a really easy way.

I spent way too many hours on the internet reading and trying to figure out the best diapers and the best way to do things. I know this is the case for many families just starting out. It can be so overwhelming!

So, I thought I would talk to some other cloth diapering mamas and ask them to tell us about their experiences with cloth diapering.
