I'm over at The Green Phone Booth today, calculating the cost of cloth vs. disposable:
When my youngest was about six month's old, my husband and I decided we were probably maybe most likely not having any more kids so there was no reason to hang on to all of our baby stuff. So as my little guy grew out of each phase of babyhood, I thrifted, Craigslisted, and Freecycled the clothes, shoes, bottles, toys, mobile, bedding, bouncy seat, and exersaucer that had gotten me through three babies, and then I stored the rest in a box in my attic.
You know what's in that box? The treasured baby possessions that I just couldn't bear to part with?
As strange as it may sound, I couldn't let go of my cloth diapers.
- the outfit all three of my boys were christened in
- the Moby wrap I got for my last baby that sparked a Moby wrap fad among my friends
- two sizes of Fuzzibunz diapers and Thirsties wraps
