Burgess Family of three...for now

A look into what we ordinarily do...sometimes not that ordinary.

I'm going to try it!

This is it! I have officially jumped on the bandwagon. I am totally convinced on the benefits, just unsure about our level of commitment to the extra effort that is involved. By "our" I mean, mine & Clint's, as well as the grandmas, aunt, and babysitter. I've got a lot of people to convert here, cut me some slack.

My supply consists of:
8 bumgenius OS pocket diapers, one long liner each
5 Green Acre Medium pocket diapers, one long liner each
6 small liners
1 hemp double liner
1 small wetbag

Any advice from those of you out there already doing it would be greatly appreciated. Drop me a note if you think there is anything else I need too.

I'll let you guys know how it goes from here!


  1. You're so crazy! :D

    Buy another wet bag and the recommended laundry detergent. Good luck!

  2. I say get the diaper sprayer. When she starts eating solids it's nice to be able to rinse them off before putting them in the wet/dry bag. Feel free to ask me any questions. I love cloth diapering!

  3. Awesome! I really like the bumgenuis brand. The one and only drawback is that the liners seemed to hold the #1 smell... I probably should dry line-drying them in the sun instead. I would second the idea about the diaper sprayer and/or the dispoable liners that you can flush when there is a #2.
