This post is really for girls only.
If you are my son, nephew, brother, uncle, pastor, etc,
you may not want to read any farther.
Feel free to skip today and come back tomorrow!
Inspired by Genevieve,
and bolstered in confidence by Theresa when we made up some diapers for our new babes,
I decided to jump in.
My babies wear cloth...
I did some searching around on the internet
I thought we might share some similarities :-)
I looked around the house for what I had,
spent $5 at Wal-Mart for some additional flannel,
and $1 at the thrift store on a pair of flannel pajama pants to cut up.
So, wanna see what I made?
10 outer pads
and 24 inner pads
all from old receiving blankets, t-shirts, a crib mattress liner,
new flannel, and re-purposed flannel.
For the same reasons I use cloth on the babies,
I decided to go this route after this baby is born.
~no trips to town because "I'm out!!!"
~no contribution to landfills
plus an added benefit of feeling quite resourceful and independent!!
(Regarding the "ick" factor--if you scroll way down on
you can read some really great information
that lends significant insight into this topic.)
