There are a lot of things I like about using cloth diapers – like saving money, the huge baby butts, the lack of diaper rashes and chemicals next to baby’s bum… I could go on. But nothing quite beats the laundering.
Think I’m joking? Well, laugh if you will. I don’t know what it is, but I love the whole process – loading into the washing machine, hanging to dry, putting away. It’s almost therapeutic.
And a day like today is PERFECT. Or at least as good as it gets in Cambridge in March.
It’s the first really sunny day we’ve had this year, which means I can finally put the diaps out for a little sunning and fresh air. During the winter, we’re forced to hang our diapers to dry in our dank, dark, creepy basement.
Today’s load consisted of some pretty colourful FuzziBunz, some FuzziBunz wannabes made by someone locally, and a bunch of wipes I made from an old flannel sheet.
So a warm welcome back Mr. Sun. We have a few stains that have been waiting for you!
Mind you, it was -20 degrees Celsius with the windchill this morning but that’s nothing my little butt covers can’t handle.
