When I was pregnant my 3rd child, a friend kept hounding me about whether or not I was going to use cloth or disposable diapers with the new baby. I kept putting her off because frankly, all my research had only led me to more confusion, and I wasn’t sure I was ready to commit to cloth diapering as confused as I was. (I wish I had found a series like my Cloth Diapering Basics or an ebook like Confessions of a Cloth Diaper Convert to help me along!)
Finally, I told her I was going to use disposables. A few weeks later, under the guise of taking me out shopping in a nearby city, she drove me instead to our church where she was hosting a diaper shower for me!
I am not usually easily surprised, but she got me that day. I was so thrilled! That baby shower netted me a year’s worth of diapers!
As my 3rd child neared 1 year, I was once again faced with the cloth diapering question. I was pregnant again and the diapers from the shower were running out. How was I going to afford 2 babies in diapers? So, back to the internet I went in search of answers.
And that, my friends, is when our cloth diapering journey began. That was over 8 years ago!
As I think back on that diaper shower, I wonder what it would have looked like had it been a CLOTH diaper shower. How amazing would it have been to open package after package of colorful, soft diaper fluff, knowing it would NEVER run out?!
And can you imagine throwing a cloth diaper baby shower for one of your friends or family members? What a tremendous blessing that would be!
A couple of years ago, I had a friend use the registry at Sweet Little Blessings to fulfill her cloth diapering dreams. It was so much fun to shop for new fluff for her new baby! I wasn’t able to attend her shower, but I was able to bless her just the same. If you or someone you know is interested in cloth diapering (or already does cloth diaper), consider setting up a gift registry and having your own Cloth Diaper Baby Shower!
