You Know You're a Cloth Diaper Mom When....

Perhaps the title of this post should be 'You Know You're A Cloth Diapering ADDICT When...' because let's be honest, it's hard to be a cloth diapering mom without also becoming an addict. Sure, we mostly all start with great intentions- save money, save the planet- but for many of us, that love cannot help but grow. Trust me, I get it! So, today I'm sharing this fun list of ways that you truly know you've got the cloth diaper fever!

  • You get more excited over a new print/color than you do a new pair of shoes. And believe me, I love me some shoes too!
  • You actually look forward to diaper laundry! The rest of the laundry on the other hand can wait!
  • Seeing another baby out and about in cloth is like seeing a celebrity. Brad who?
  • The word 'unicorn' has taken on a whole new meaning.
  • You choose shirts and dresses based on how well it will match your favorite diapers. And in the summer, pants are completely optional.
  • You've excitedly shared your fluff mail photos via social media.And don't forget your stash shots! (And you love seeing other peoples too!)
  • You've learned a whole new language- AIO, AI2, FST... you know what these mean without a second thought.
  • You dread the day your baby potty trains! What will you do with all those diapers!?
  • You want to have a new baby so you can continue using cloth...and buy newborn cloth too! (Too extreme?)
  • You get super excited every time you discover a new cloth diaper giveaway. Never mind that you don't NEED anymore diapers!
  • You have enough diapers to diaper 3 kids... and you just have one!
  • You have a sticker on your vehicle celebrating cloth diapering. (No, really, I have this!!)
  • You said, 'Just one more diaper'...5 diapers ago! Too many diapers? Never!
  • You cannot wait until the next Great Cloth Diaper Change.
  • You've read through this list and saw yourself on more than a few!

Are you a cloth diaper addict? How would YOU finish the sentence, "You know you're a cloth diapering mama when..."
