I never really thought about living green until I got pregnant with Parker. I started to pay a little more attention to labels and was shocked to learn all of the harmful and poisonous chemicals that were in our everyday products. I quickly got overwhelmed with the idea of leading a greener life and realized that I would need to take baby steps. Changing one thing at a time was more manageable as a new mom. Now, after about a year, we have switched out a lot of our cleaning agents in our home, reduced waste with unpaper towels and wash cloths and shop for more local and organic food.
While we were never cloth diapering 100% of the time both kids were cloth diapered for awhile. Parker was later on, about 3-18 months, and Caity was early, newborn – 6 months. I definitly recommend it to any family as a way to save money and/or help the environment. I wouldn’t say it’s easier and at times can be a little gross, but man what a difference it can make in your budget, the environment, and even with preventing rashes.
