I don’t know about you, but the longer I’m in the cloth diapering world, the more I forget how completely overwhelming it can be when you are first trying to learn everything about this new adventure. I can’t believe it’s been THREE years since we’ve shared a blog post about one of the most difficult obstacles to overcome when researching cloth diapers – the lingo!

My eighth child, Molly, is about to turn one and exploring the world of solid food, which can make diaper changes and diaper pails, as I’m sure you know, less than pleasant. Added to being constantly on the go, it just seemed like maybe this was one thing I just needed to concede to busyness. So I sat own and thought about it for a while.

Our final question of the day: What would you or have you camped out for? As always, we’ll choose a random winner from all Facebook, Twitter and blog responses in an hour.
Cotton Babies has long been frustrated by the lack of information available about how each baby wearing disposable diapers impacts landfills. We are working on a project to collect data about how much used disposable diapers weigh. The goal of this project is to estimate the approximate weight of the waste generated from a child wearing disposable diapers full time. To participate, please have your baby wear one disposable diaper for a normal length of time (as you define it). At the next diaper change, please weigh that disposable diaper. You can submit the information about that diaper using this
