I can’t believe it has been just over 3 weeks since Madison came into our life!!
You were right when telling me that time will fly by and that things will get better. Because slowly things are getting better around here.
Madison still has her nights and days mixed up, but there have been a few nights where she sleeps. Those nights are amazing. It’s funny what I think about with a crying newborn at 2am. I catch myself googling why my newborn is crying? What can I do help her?
I then catch myself comparing what I am doing to what other’s are doing. I am trying to cut back on reading things on the internet and just listen to my motherly instincts and focus on what Madison needs because each baby is different!
One thing Michelle and I always mention here on the blog about health and fitness – one thing might work for you but might not work for someone as we are all different. We all have to find what works for purely us! Life with a newborn is no different. I have to figure out what works for Madison and me.
I am loving cloth diapers! I can’t get over how much I am really enjoying it.

I hope I answered all your questions or thoughts when it comes to cloth diapers.
I am surprised how much I am loving them. I have realized that cloth diapering isn’t scary. It’s actually easy.
I wash her cloth diapers once a day, which I don’t mind.
First day home with Madison and trying out cloth diapers for the first time.
I am still figuring out which brands and styles I really, really LOVE. I plan to try out a few more brands to see if I like them better compared to what I have. Sloomb cloth diapers is one brand I am thinking about purchasing to test out. Do you have any other brand recommendations?
One thing I do know is that I love the prefolds! Right now they probably are my favorite as they are so easy. Easy to put on. Easy to clean. The all-in-one cloth diapers I like as well but they take longer to clean and dry. But they are easy too!
My favorite prefolds are the ones from green mountain diapers for cloth diapering.
When did we start using cloth diapers?
My journey with cloth diapering started as soon as we brought Madison home from the hospital. At the hospital we used Honest diapers and decided to wait to use cloth once we were home.
I am actually not a huge fan of this diaper pail. I think using a trash can with a lid would be better. I am thinking of changing soon.
For the Green Mountain workhorse for newborn I am not a huge fan of these. I love how well they fit her but not a huge fan of the diaper itself.
I love the Thirsties diaper covers, both the velcro and buttons.
For the all-in-ones from Simplex and Bum Genius I do like them both. The new born simplex ones fit her great! They are super easy to use but take forever to get completely dry. This one also did stain on me. But like I mentioned in the video this pre-spray really helps get rid of the poo stains. I like the Bum Genius all-in-ones but they are big on her. I think once she is a little bigger they will fit her great.
Laundry detergent for cloth diapers?
I am using and loving Charlie’s liquid soap.
How many loads of laundry are you doing?
I wash the cloth diapers once a day. I did not buy a lot so that is why I am washing every day.
What is your favorite cloth diaper?

That depends on how much laundry you want to do. Here is how many cloth diapers I bought.
