Cloth Diapers and Fluff Mail

I am cloth diapering Shark Baby. I knew before I got pregnant that cloth diapers were going to be in my mommy repertoire. Shortly after I found out I was pregnant, I told my husband that I wanted to use cloth. He looked at me like I had a third eye growing out of my head and asked why? I told him my reasons (more economical, ecofriendly, etc.) and he gave me the green light to do whatever I wanted.
I started my stash of diapers by purchasing some used diapers from a local cloth diaper retailer and off of Facebook. I accumulated about 25 diapers, which I thought would be great to get us started.
I quickly realized that many of the diapers I purchased weren’t truly “one sized” as advertised. My LO was much smaller in the waist and legs, thus leading to poopsplosions and other leakages. I quickly modified my stash by buying and selling some of my diapers in groups on Facebook. I thought my husband would kill me as he came home each day to find new diapers in the mail. I assured him that I was mailing out diapers to new owners as I brought new ones in.
Fast¬†forward to today where I am still building my stash with an almost three-month old. I just got three new all in one Blueberry diapers. These are by far the best for my LO and my family. They are super easy to wash and put away. I don’t mind the extra work of pocket diapers or fitted diapers, but it is more challenging for the hubby and sitter.
