I was a cloth diaper baby! My mother believed in cloth diapers; in fact, she thought they were more environmentally friendly before we even talked about it. Although it cost more initially, cloth diapering for my siblings and me saved my parents money in the long run. My mother believed that it was her responsibility to reduce the family’s carbon footprint by living consciously. Back THEN, there was a constant debate and conflicting information about using cloth diapers.
