We were given this pamphlet of Bum Genius cloth diaper by the owner of BB Oasis at KL Festival City that day. I always love to see the colourful and funky designs printed on the cloth diaper but I've never seriously into it since hubby wasn't keen of putting the soiled diaper into the washing machine (datang was was akan status kebersihan baju2 lain that will be dumped into the same washing machine). Well we can soak it in a pail first with Dettol for a day or more before dumping it to the machine plus applying disposable nappy liners to the cloth diaper etc but.. Don't you think it is soo time-consuming? Nak kene basuh jemur basuh jemur banyak2 kali lagik. Akak2 manis kat daycare or pre-school tu sanggup ke layan budak2 with cloth diaper? Hmm.. Housewife ok kut, since they got plenty of times at home.
Benefits of cloth diaper:
- You'll save money - RM3k plus within 2 and a half years?
- You'll prevent waste - I'd always love to keep the earth green! Lesser landfill waste..
- They say it's more convenient as cloth diaper may prevent leaks. I don't think this one applied to us since Faheem rarely faced any diaper leaking or nappy rash - that's the good thing of having a stay-at-home babysitter I guess. I always reminded her to regularly change Faheem's diaper to prevent those leaking and rashes issue and she obeys it =)
But when I saw this baby blue cloth diaper, nampak kemas sangat.. Smart pun ada. Macam teringin pulak. Hehe. It's for the lil one in my tummy actually, not for her/his bro. Oh Abg Faheem has been successfully trained as 95% diaper less kid since November last year (he wear diaper during nights and going outs). Zillion thanks to atok and nenek Faheem who 'forced' me to slowly train him as (according to them) Faheem is a big boy now, it's time to teach him to speak up whenever he wants to pee pee or poo poo. And I was quite surprise that he passed the test within 2 weeks! =) At first we need to continuously ask him whether he wants to pee or not. Until he get used to the same question and tell us directly whenever he feels like going to the wash room. But then, he still refuse the potty chair tho, not comfortable I guess? Nanti papa balik mama survey2 potty seat pulak ok? Hopefully he'll change his mind then!
Back to the cloth diaper issue. Hmm.. I think it's finalize now. I'm gonna use it if and only if, I'm switching from a career mom to stay at home mom this coming June 2012. We'll see how la..
Setiap kali pregnant banyak nye super tough decisions that I have to make..Give me strength ya Allah. And please please lead me to the right path. Amin
