Cloth Diapers in the Elwood House!

I have been talking about it for nearly two months, and then I was waiting for my poor cloth diapers to be released from Customs, and now they are finally here. I love them!
We got a full time cloth diapering set from Apple Cheeks, an awesome Canadian based company, and now we are fully cloth diapering Ben.

Not only have we cut back on the money we are spending on diapers, we are being more green, and helping to reduce our garbage output from our house. Now just to potty train Camden!

Check out Ben toddling around in his cute diaper!

I have been wanting to convert to cloth diapers but my husband just doesn't understand the whole concept and how you deal with the poo........ Any idea's on how to convince him and how exactly do you clean them?

Well our biggest selling point was that it is a one time investment, and then you don't have to spend money on diapers anymore.
I am not sure about other companies, but Apple Cheeks sells a flushable liner that catches any "solids" and then down the toilet they go.

Just like if you would have a toddler potty training, or an adult that had an accident. Just flush what you can, and wash the rest.
