Latest obsession

As some of you know especially those that I've personally asked about the benefits of Cloth Diapers (CDs), I've made my way to become another CD maniac hee...As I was telling Osindak, I've read about CD while I was still expecting Ethan...I even bought a cute one from Bumwear just for a trial...unfortunately that only CD piece that I have initially was kept deep inside Ethan's chest of drawers for months!! It was only recently that I dug it back when Ethan got his first fungal infection. Seeing him feeling uncomfortable especially not being able to sleep in peace at night has led me to think about switching from disposable diapers to CD. After reading through articles about disposable diapers vs CDs and the pros and cons of CDs again...yeah I read through it months ago but b4 embarking on it, I thought I read it once again coz the initial investment can be quite hefty though more economical in the long run..and of coz after consulting CDs mommies like hip-O-mama , Osindak and Deana, I finally decided to switch to CDs. So yeah, I've bought my CDs thanks to Sandra of MiaBambina. I visited her home to get some CDs, inserts and a wet bag last Saturday afternoon. Met her cute daughter Maya too...I'll post the pictures of Maya and Ethan once I've transfer ed the pics from my hp hehe...
Since the initial investment can be pretty high, I'll start Ethan on CDs only during the day. I will switch to CDs fulltime when I have enough CDs to go around (which I don't think will be long especially with so many cute designs out there!!) and of coz if there's no negative reaction from Ethan :)
Today is his first day with his CDs. I've yet to take a picture of him in his CDs coz I put him on disposable diaper when we brought him to the clinic for his 10th month check up this morning. Oh btw, just side track a bit, he is 9.8kg and 77cm now - for my record only :) So will ask MIL later this evening how was his reactions to his new CDs if any :) Ok, let me share my humble CDs collection for now ;p
Ethan's very first CD from Bumwear which I bought in 2007 - love the batik dino print :)

I've also got a wet bag from Sandra and I was given a natural nappy cream courtesy of Sandra ;)
So here is my humble CDs collection + my wet bag and nappy cream - only 5 pieces for now (1 Bumwear, 3 Drybees pocket diapers - L size & Drybees Hybrid AIO)
If you wish to find out more about CDs, go to Deana's Children Journal and MiaBambina :)
