diapers, finances, and the environment

We are nine weeks into using cloth diapers for Zak.  We have some kind of system that Tara found so we don’t have to use safety pins, which is great for me because there would be nothing safe about it.  They also have a cover than goes over the diaper. It resembles the bladder system Kramer  invented to put inside of oil tankers in case of a spill.

We have a two-fold purpose in using cloth diapers. First, cloth diapers are so much cheaper in the long run. Initially, you have to shell out some cash, but, you don’t have to buy diapers again for a long time.  Secondly, we are trying to become more environmentally conscious and this is a way we can contribute. You go through alot of diapers with kids, so by using cloth, we minimize our trash.

One thing these do not do, that I wish they did, was mask the smell. If someone can invent a way to keep a diaper from smelling, they will make a million, no doubt.
