Last month, I presented a challenge: Change One (More) Thing in your quest for eco-friendliness. I posted a list of changes I wanted to make and asked readers to do the same. You can view my original list HERE.
My change this month: We’re Back in Cloth Diapers!
Sometime mid-summer, my son developed a funky rash that required the use of an anti-fungal cream. We were doing some traveling as well, and began using one of my favorite disposable options, the GroVia Biosoaker, a compostable insert made of eco-friendly materials. (However, if you read my original list, you’ll see that our compost pile has gone by the wayside, too, so….) Eventually, we found disposables to be a time-saver in that washing diapers got crossed off the list. We got sucked into the “convenience” of disposables and let the cloth sit. (I put convenience in quotes, because, really, how convenient is it when your son can literally rip his diaper off his body and create a poo-tastic art project in his bed, hm?) My fluffy stash kept calling to me but The Bear had outgrown many of the diapers we own.
But I buckled down. I sold off some diapers that just weren’t working for us so I could purchase some things that did (namely, GroVia cotton inserts and a few fitteds and All-in-Ones.) Now, I’ve regained my love for cloth diapering and want to spread the joy!

(By the way, if you’re new to cloth diapering or you’re looking to change someone’s mind about it, I highly recommend Kelly Wels‘ book, Changing Diapers. It’s a wonderful resource that got me re-energized about cloth! Stay tuned to Healthful Mama for a review of this book and another giveaway in the coming weeks!)
