I'm pretty sure my mom cloth diapered me when I was a baby. But, her cloth diapers were nothing compared to the cloth diapers of today. If you have a little one and would like to help save tons of disposable diapers from landfills, pop over to Cloth Babies and read about their challenge.
I signed up for it. I already use more than 3 cloth diapers a day. Right now, mine are hanging on the line enjoying this warm, sunny day to bleach out.
Just a recommendation, don't start with an Econobum, give the Bum Genuis a try. You can buy a 3-pack for $53.10 right now.
