Everybody knows that cloth diapers are better for the environment, gentler on babies skin, and kinder to your wallet. Knowing this and doing something about it are two different things though! People are often put off by cloth diapers for three big reasons:
1. the start up costs,
2. the cleaning! and
3. the complicated process of putting them on.
While some of us think the benefits outweigh the duldrum of rinsing stinky cloths, it’s very easy to close your eyes to the waste and embrace the quick and easy disposables.
Enter London’s only diaper service: Cheerful Cheeks. http://www.cheerfulcheeks.com/ With one simple service, all of your cloth diaper hesitations disappear. Trying out Cheerful Cheeks for two weeks put me in cloth diaper bliss. Without any effort on my part, a huge bag of just-like-new fresh, Canadian-made diapers, liners, AND wipes showed up at my door with a second empty diaper bag. The diapers were shaped and snapped on just like a disposable – no pins, sticky velcro or those gumby-like contraptions needed. Simple. But the absolute best part about these diapers was the clean up, which was nil. Exactly like using a disposable – I wiped with the cloth wipes, left the wipe in the diaper, and tossed the whole thing (diaper, liner, wipes) in the ‘dirty’ bag. The end. At the end of the week, the ‘dirty’ bag went on my porch and like magic they were replaced with a clean bag.
About now is where you start thinking: they’re as easy to use as disposables and there is no rinsing poop off your diapers or dealing with poop soup in your washer – what is the cost?? http://www.cheerfulcheeks.com/Diaper-Service There is no start up fee. For only $19.95 a week (roughly the cost of a bag of diapers and a box of wipes), you get all the diapers, liners and wipes you could possibly need without ever leaving your house. In the long run, you save money for so many reasons: http://www.cheerfulcheeks.com/Cloth-vs-Disposables And if you ever decide that you’re so in love with cloth diapers that you want to invest in your own stash, Cheerful Cheeks can get you started in their shop! http://www.cheerfulcheeks.com/catalog Tired of paying through the nose for swim diapers? Cheerful Cheeks has a better option. Need a new wet bag for when you leave the house? They’ve got those, too.

Carrie is a cloth diaper expert who can answer all of your diapering questions!
