As a potential first-time mom, there are a million things that I just don't know. Google and I have become even better friends in the past few months (which I didn't think was even possible!) because I've been researching everything baby related. During my late-night internet trolling, I checked out a site that my mom sent me, and discovered an amazing thing. We have a diaper service in town!
To be completely honest, I'd never really considered using cloth diapers. I vividly remember my mom swishing my youngest brother's training pants in the toilet when he was potty training, and being utterly disgusted. No way was I going to sign up for anything that involved hand-washing baby clothes in the potty. Not.Gonna.Happen. So, when I found CottonTails, I was slightly grossed out, but a little intrigued. As it turns out, there's nothing remotely gross about cloth diapering- especially if you utilize a service that does all of the hard stuff for you!
I really think that we're going to give it a try. If we hate the service, or cloth diapers in general, we'll go buy a bunch of disposables. And possibly eat some crow, because all of my friends think that I'm nuts for even considering this.
