Cloth Diapers are Sweet Relief for Sensitive Babies

A while back we had ask if anyone wanted to Guest Blog and share stories about Bum Essentials or cloth diapers in general. Today Anastasia joins us to share her cloth diapering experience. Here is a link to her Blog Eco-Babyz. Thank you for sharing with us. Take it away Anastasia-

"I knew about cloth diapers before our daughter was born, but I just thought I wouldn't have the time for the extra loads of laundry. The birth came and went, we stuck with our chlorine free disposables. After six months I was running out of ideas for how to ease my baby's diaper rash suffering. She had very sensitive skin and even got rashes from some types of clothing fabrics. I've tried about six different natural diaper creams, nothing was really working. I had to apply cream at every change, it was messy and especially annoying when visiting friends and family. There was relief from creams, but the problem was not being solved and it looked like there was no end in sight!

Finally, on a warm summer day, it dawned on me that the one thing we haven't tried were cloth diapers! It was as if I finally saw the light at the end of the tunnel. Since I was a complete newbie, I did my share of research and finally got some basic modern cloth diapers to try. To say I was excited when they arrived is an understatement! We started with just five and I did laundry every day. I was surprised at how little time it took and how much easier it was than I thought it would be. But best of all, our rash was completely gone in all of two days to never come back again! No creams, no screams, just fluffy goodness.

If you are a mother with a sensitive baby, you will understand what a huge relief it is to have your baby's bum clear and rash free. I was elated and regretted I didn't go the cloth route from the beginning. Not only did I now have a happy, healthy baby, but I knew we would save a lot of money in the long run as well. Our stash now includes fourteen various diapers and we've already saved almost a thousand dollars in just one year. Among other benefits, our baby has been going on the potty for almost a year and loves it - so complete potty training isn't something we fear in the future. Above all, a rash free baby is truly a priceless benefit!"
