Oh, the wonderful freedom of having kids who no longer need diapers!
And, oh, how I loved cloth-diapering my babies. I loved everything about it. (Everything I’ve allowed myself to remember, that is. I repressed all memories of the ‘ick’ factor.) But the cuteness of a puffy baby tush… the freedom of never running out of diapers in the middle of the night… the freshness of clean white diapers coming out of the dryer… ah, love!
The challenge of finding the perfect diaper for night-time, or travel time, or fancy-occasion time… it’s a quest cloth-diapering moms know well. I loved the thrill of having my favorite diaper at the top of the stack at changing time. I loved the rugged durability of our trusty prefolds. The first article of clothing I learned to knit was a wool diaper cover. SUCH an accomplishment, and it was the best cover in our stash.
Those diapers are Fluffy Goodness with Memories attached… so how could I possibly just take them to the thrift store? (I couldn’t. That’s the answer.) They need to go to a HOME. So I was glad to learn of a new organization called ‘Giving Diapers, Giving Hope’. They give diapers at no cost to low-income families. Now THAT’s worth a little postage on my end. I’m filling a box today.
