Farm Fresh

… Fresh on to the farm. Here is an occassional chronicle of a new family in a small town.

diapers arrive today

Oh dear. Yesterday we got our delivery of cloth diapers in. You are wearing one now. Your father and I are not enthused although I had been wanting to try them all along. One of your fairy godmothers  (as Grandma Joey calls them) Karen Johnson got us the order and now we have to put her money where our mouth is.  I mean they are bulky and you need pins and a cover, and in short, they seem complicated.   I think it’s going to be challenging enough just going out in the world by ourselves without wondering where I’m going to lay the pins down when changing you in the car, ouch.

We want to be responsible parents see.  And part of that I think means responsible “citizens of the world” and that means to us, not filling up land the size of new zealand with wasted toys, outfits and diapers.  But oh the drama of the poo and pee and sleep deprived parent.  Up until now, we have only researched our earth friendly options and made due with the disposables.  We were at an impasse. Stuck between convenience and the growing number of options out there for those parents willing to invest time and money into the bottoms of their children to save the world.  Our options were, and suppose still are, as the jury is still out on the cloth diapers:

1. GDiapers: A washable cover with compostable inserts
2. Disposables
3. Cloth
4. All in one washable cover, diaper

So far the disposables are most convenient but the cloth make me feel the best about what we’re doing.

You don’t seem to mind them.
