If Your Diapers Aren't Cloth They Are Garbage

I've seen it debated lately whether or not cloth diapers are more green than disposables. I personally cannot believe that the repeated manufacturing, transporting, and disposing of "sposies" can be more economically sound than my cloth diapers that only require two or three washes a week. For me cloth is hands down better for the environment and for my little ones' behinds.
I was very intimidated when I decided to make the change to cloth. There are so many options out there it is hard to find where to start. I decided to go with in all-in-one diaper since they are so similar to the disposable me and my family were already use to. These diapers have fleecy insides with a terry cloth insert. The outside material is PUL, which provides a moisture barrier. They usually have snaps or Velcro closures. I chose the Fuzzi Bunz brand and could not be more happy with their product and their excellent customer service. I only wish I had made the switch sooner. I cringe thinking about all the money I missed out on saving.
