You Know You're a Cloth Diapering Mama When...

Perhaps the title of this post should be 'You Know You're A Cloth Diapering ADDICT When...' because let's be honest, it's hard to be a cloth diapering mom without also becoming an addict. Sure, we mostly all start with great intentions- save money, save the planet- but for many of us, that love cannot help but grow. Trust me, I get it! So, today I'm sharing this fun list of ways that you truly know you've got the cloth diaper fever!

  • You get more excited over a new print/color than you do a new pair of shoes. And believe me, I love me some shoes too!
  • You actually look forward to diaper laundry! The rest of the laundry on the other hand can wait!
  • Seeing another baby out and about in cloth is like seeing a celebrity. Brad who?
  • The word 'unicorn' has taken on a whole new meaning.
  • You choose shirts and dresses based on how well it will match your favorite diapers. And in the summer, pants are completely optional.
  • You've excitedly shared your fluff mail photos via social media.And don't forget your stash shots! (And you love seeing other peoples too!)
  • You've learned a whole new language- AIO, AI2, FST... you know what these mean without a second thought.
  • You dread the day your baby potty trains! What will you do with all those diapers!?
  • You want to have a new baby so you can continue using cloth...and buy newborn cloth too! (Too extreme?)
  • You get super excited every time you discover a new cloth diaper giveaway. Never mind that you don't NEED anymore diapers!
  • You have enough diapers to diaper 3 kids... and you just have one!
  • You have a sticker on your vehicle celebrating cloth diapering. (No, really, I have this!!)
  • You said, 'Just one more diaper'...5 diapers ago! Too many diapers? Never!
  • You cannot wait until the next Great Cloth Diaper Change.
  • You've read through this list and saw yourself on more than a few!

Are you a cloth diaper addict? How would YOU finish the sentence, "You know you're a cloth diapering mama when..."


  1. This is great--so many of them are very true for me!

  2. Our daycare won't let us use cloth diapers there, but I use cloth at home for swim diapers and love them! I wish I could use them all the time, I hate all the money I waste on disposables!

  3. Omgosh I haven't even cloth diapered and I find myself gooing and gaaing over new prints that are oh so cute!! I can't even help myself... I may have started a stash for my second child that Im not even prego with yet lol!!! Shhhhh ;)

  4. When you go to wash those cloth diapers it's best to pre-rinse them using a Diaper Sprayer or Hand Held Bidet Sprayer. You can also save money on Toilet Paper by using the Hand Sprayer for it's original purpose which is to clean you. See www.bathroomsprayers.com.
