It's Good To Have A Plan

What does an anal retentive pregnant chick do all morning? Why build a spreadsheet to price shop cloth diapers of course! I am very happy because I think I have put together a system that will work for us. I am combining a few different kinds (prefolds, fitted and all-in-ones) to save on initial costs. Even Tom & I should be able to successfully diaper Peanut with this plan.
I am going to use S*eventh Generation disposables for the first few weeks and then switch to cloth. This way we won't be pressured to figure everything out at once. If we start cloth sooner than we'll just have extra disposables to use for trips or whatnot.
The key to embracing cloth diapers is realizing ALL diapers are expensive. Especially if you figure your child will be using them until 2-3 years of age. But if you're gonna shell out mucho $$$ I feel better spending it on reusuable ones. Nevermind all the other great reasons to not use disposables.
