Day 23: Start
I umm-ed and ahh-ed over starting my cloth journey. The thought of cleaning pooey nappies, the wash routine and potential increase in energy consumption was daunting, let alone trying to figure out all the different ‘types’ out there... what are OSFM, AIO, AI2? What is the difference between the inserts - hemp, bamboo, cotton, suedecloth, microfleece...was is a snap rise?! I was overwhelmed!
I was lucky enough to have had and still have a community of wonderful mamas who answered my million questions, gifted me nappies to get me started and supported my headlong dive down the rabbit hole 😂
There are also some amazing groups out there to help you if you’re considering cloth @cleanclothnappies and @mcnreviewsuncensored are both wonderful, supportive groups designed to support those in the cloth community and provide updated, relevant data.
If you’re feeling overwhelmed with the information out there and are hesitant to start cloth, you are not alone! We were all there once and if you decide to take that leap, we are all here to catch you 🥰
