Well, folks, we’ve started a new adventure around here.
Now, before you get all weirded out with me and stop reading, let me explain!
I decided to do this for two reasons:
1) to save money. Ryder’s formula is really expensive and there is just nothing I can do about that. But there is something I can do to knock off expenses elsewhere, which is changing to cloth.
2) Ryder’s skin is so sensitive. Its so bad that, if I’m touching her bare skin with my bare skin, she breaks out into hives. So, she has a permanent redness/rash where the diaper touches her. And since changing to cloth three days ago, the rash is GONE. Amazing!
So far I am really, really liking it. Its not nearly as hard as I expected and I have stocked up enough diapers, thanks to my friend, Amber,who gave me an awesome deal on hers and buying some on sale, that I don’t have to wash constantly. I’ve had one “bad” diaper and it was the first time Ryder has EVER had a big one in her life and even that wasn’t so bad. (That’s a true testament to how motherhood changes you completely.)
The biggest plus? Ryder looks ADORABLE in them!
Also, how did we end up with a child with fair skin, bright blue eyes, and blonde/strawberry blonde hair??? (Andy calls her his litle albino child, ha!)
I love it.
So stay tuned! I will be writing more about this as I learn all the tricks to making it easier! And a big thanks to my friends Erin and Rachel for giving me a ton of advice to help ease me into this new adventure!
