Looking back, it was definitely the honeymoon period of cloth diapering, because now I am so, so tired of it. I confessed my cloth-diaper fatigue to mom friend Andria B
(who also cloth diapers and runs a diaper service) and she told me that it was perfectly normal. Many families aren’t as hardcore cloth as I am, so it takes them a little longer to burn out. But they do. Which is why having cloth diaper veterans like Andria in my circle of friends is so awesome (she helped me get through my iron and ammonia problems too). I was thinking about a) ditching cloth for disposables or b) picking up new covers and inserts to revitalize my stash. Andria's advice: slog through it and don't buy more gear. Potty training — even though it seems forever away — is probably no more than six months away. And like every stage of parenting it won't last forever —
OK, neverending laundry might. So I've decided to give myself permission to use disposables from time to time. By committing to cloth for this long I know I've achieved all my goals.
