Todays reason why I’m thankful I cloth diaper

It’s likely you already have heard all the arguments on why cloth diapering is a great way to go.  It’s great for the environment, it keeps toxins away from your little ones delicate skin, and it’s especially great for your bank account.  But every once in a while I’m given a new reason to love my cloth, and today was one of those days.  I co-sleep, and while usually I am not a morning person, co-sleeping makes me one.  I love the way we slowly wake up together, dozing and nursing, nursing and dozing, until we are both awake and he looks at me with such pure delight.  It melts my heart.  But this morning was different.  This morning I woke to the sound no mama wants to hear, especially one who co-sleeps.  The sound of my little one forcefully filling an already full nighttime diaper.  My eyes popped open and I was filled with a relief (since he hadn’t gone in 2 days) and fear at the same time.  I really should have known though, there was nothing to fear…had I used disposables it would have been a nightmare, but as it was every last bit was safely contained.  Cloth.  The benefits just keep comin’!
