I want to buy some cloth diapers for my newborn this time around. Pictured here are the Rumparooz Lil' Joeys. Crazy? I did some math. The first two months of diapering in disposables will cost 180 dollars. For this same amount I can get just enough newborn diapers to do laundry everyday. I would throw them in the washer at supper time, in the dryer at bedtime, and have clean diapers in the morning.
The only gamble is...what if this baby is ginormous? What if I buy teeny diapers, and the baby already fits the BumGenius One Size I have at two weeks old? Also, what if I'm underestimating being a mom of two? What if I'm exhausted at suppertime and the idea of one more chore makes me bawl my eyes out?
