Don't answer that right away, all you gun-jumpers.
Ok so...I've been thinking about this for a while. Probably too long. Maybe not long enough. I don't know. But I think I need some other opinions.
Two words for you: cloth diapers.
Ok but seriously - don't freak out. You'll most likely scare people around you. And really, people are scared enough in general as it is.
First read this:
And look at these:
And then you may freak out. If the urge is still there.
From a purely financial standpoint, this makes a whole lotta sense. I mean really - about $350 to buy a set of one size, adjustable cloth diapers, probably a little less than double that if you're going to have 2 stinkers at once. But no more than $700 to diaper all your children. Forever. Compared to about $2500 per child! Plan to have 4 or 5 kiddos and...
That is huge. Tell me that's not huge.
Oh yeah, and a couple extra loads of laundry.
But from what I've read, cloth diapers are a lot more comfy for baby, and they are super absorbent so you're less likely to have lovely (ahem) blowouts.
In theory, this idea makes sense to me.
I don't have children. Theories have not been tested. But I'm trying to do my homework here.
So you tell me- would you ever consider this? I mean, ever? In a million years?
Because I'm getting really close to talking myself into it.
Lord, have mercy.
