I’m stuck. I’m confused. I’m unsure. Help. I use disposable diapers.

Don’t you dare point your finger and judge me.

I’m a mom and that was my choice but maybe or maybe not a good one. I’m over it, kinda. I want to use cloth diapers but here’s my dirty little secret…I thought you still had to use pins and poke yourself. Really, truly I did. I’m not playing dumb. I even asked my mom who nags me to use cloth. Like my mom would know? I researched it with my son, four years ago and assumed things were the same. I did a bad job researching it and with everything else on my plate, just took the easy, this is what I know route.

I used Seventh Generation, so that was at least better than bleached white diapers, right? I only used them until my daughter went to size 4. The Seventh Generation ones didn’t fit her right when she got to this size and there was constant leakage.

So here’s where I need your help. I want to use cloth, now that I’ve read some stuff over at Nature Moms and Green Baby Guide. Now that I’ve become a little more educated on the cloth diaper thing. I just wonder if my daughter is too old to make the switch and if it will cost too much to buy a cloth diaper system. I’m thinking about my green wallet now, yes, I know.

Want to know my other secret? I don’t even know where to begin. Josie is 19 months so what size? What brand, style and how many? Do I really need a system? Oh, my…please help me go green here. I’d love to try some but where do I start and how do I know she will like them? I can’t just waste money to go green for a few months before toilet training.

Don’t you dare point your finger and judge me.

Bring on the suggestions. Send me to some websites. Tell me what you use and why you use them. Help me because I do want to make the switch I’m just not sure if I can.

Don’t you dare point your finger and judge me. I’m trying.
