could i do this??
i would think i want to, but all i can see is my own mom's horror stories come to life... nasty cloth diapers soaking in amonia, carting around a soggy poop diaper in my diaper bag... or even worse... my own memories of working at that orphanage in guatemala, carrying around the child's weight in cloth diaper nastiness, making any and all clothes unwearable.
apparently there is a whole new world to the cloth diaper.
besides the money saving perks, they are also smaller, snugger, obviously eco-friendly, and excuse me... C U T E R. no doubt they are more work.. but have i really become that lazy??? and really, by the time i change minie's diaper, run it down stairs and out to the pail, i really wonder how much easier it is??
not only are disposable diapers practically indestructable, but as the process of decomposing runs it's course, toxic chemical are emitted, and all that yumminess goes straight to our air. i suppose i have always known this... but not really cared, or thought i could make any difference. i just feel like i can't deny it anymore...
what do you think??
anyone else out there with green guilt???
how can we not have it???
one thing is for sure, i am out first thing for a recycling bin tomorrow.. and i may just order my first pack of cloth diaps. yes.. i may be crazy.

............After about 10 hours into Kennan's induction (she was trying for a VBAC) they decided to take Greta via semi-emergency c-section. Baby wasn't dropping at all, Kennan was barely to 5cm dialted and really was not much more effaced than when she arrived. Also poor little Greta's heart rate was giving us all a bit of a scare. We are all SOOO glad they decided to do the section when they did. Greta came out with the cord wrapped around her neck twice, both arms, then again around her torso twice, and finally one final loop around her thigh. She would NEVER have been able to deliver vaginally. Greta also did not breath on her own for nearly 5 minutes, and really has not quite recoverd. She is currently in the stage 2 nursery on the lowest level of oxygen, and they are not sure when she will be off. Kennan and Trevan are the only ones who have held her at this point, and even then I think it was never more than about 5 minutes. So far they think she is going to be just fine, but are worried for good reason. They are almost positive she will stay on the IV and oxygen at least till Saturday, and then will take it from there.
Please pray for this darling little baby girl, Kennan, Trevan, and Jude.... This little family needs it at this point!
