Call me crazy, but I’m determined to do it! I honestly hate buying disposable diapers. It irks me to the core. However, we do on occasion buy disposables for outings and nighttime use, but Dhara mostly lives in her clothies — which I love. But the thought of cloth diapering 2 babies is daunting — good thing there are parents of multiples who do it! Like here, and here. Oh, and here.
So what does my newborn stash look like? Simple, all prefolds and covers! I feel like they grow so quick in the initial stages that it’s more affordable to just go with prefolds. Thank goodness Greg has been so open to cloth from the beginning (with Dhara)! Now I just need to get my mom and sister on board — they will also be changing diapers since there are more bums to go around. Good thing cloth is super cute — I’m excited to see these two little guys’ bums wrapped in cloth.

It might look like alot, but some of these items were purchased for Dhara when she was a baby, and newer items can be used for future babies. So there you go, cloth diapering 2 babies for the first couple months and more — I’ll let you know if this really works! : ) Oh, and if any of you cloth diapering moms have any advice or recommendations, please feel free to chime in!
