I'm considering switching Baby J over to cloth diapers and using cloth once the new baby arrives. My arguments are:
1. Baby J has a really sensitive bottom. He doesn't really get too many rashes, but he gets really dry and is scratching the second his diaper comes off. Cloth is all around better for baby bottoms and I think that the lack of chemicals might solve some of Baby J's skin issues.
2. We would save a considerable amount of money after the initial investment, provided I don't go crazy buying too many of the adorable all in ones or accessories.
3. We would dramatically reduce our carbon footprint, especially after bean arrives.
4. They are just so darn cute. We would probably end up using tri-folds and covers, but there's so many adorable (and incredibly convenient) options out there like bumgenius that go on just like disposibles - no folding or fussing!
I don't think daycare will use cloth - but these may be our best option.
Scott is not convinced yet, but I'll keep working on him.
