I was 20 years old when I found out I was pregnant with my daughter. At that point I think I was overwhelmed with the whole idea of being a new parent and what I was going to do about work that the idea of using anything other than disposables never crossed my mind. When she began solid foods she started getting horrible rashes. I changed diaper brands, wipes, “aired” her out, tried every diaper rash cream in the store and even made trips to the pediatrician on several occasions over her rashes. If I knew then what I know now!
Fast forward four years later, we found out we were expecting again! This time I have been extremely lucky to be able to stay home with my baby (I have a wonderful husband!). Having more time on my hands, I researched a lot of things during my pregnancy; prenatal vitamins, options for birth plans, and cloth diapers.
I think, unfortunately, many people still think of cloth diapers as a piece of fabric held together with pins, how antiquated! The truth is there are so many styles and systems of cloth diapering and many of them are oh so cute!
I will go more deeply into brands and types later. For now I just want to add that, so far, we have not seen any diaper rashes on this little one.
