Hunting for Cloth Diapers

Now that I'm out of the corporate world (oops, I have not announced this on my blog yet.. ok, shall save this for another post.), I have to save as much money as I can.

Well, I'm not going to starve my baby, don't worry. He's still getting one of the most expensive milk in the market. I'm talking about switching him from disposable diapers to cloth diapers!

There are a number of benefits to switching to cloth diapers:
1) We spend less money on disposables. (Although my boy's skin is not fussy with the brands, it still does take up an amount of money in a month.)
2) We will be environmentally friendly! Mother nature will love the Tan family more! (huh??)
3) My boy will look like he is wearing pants! (Help mummy and daddy save more money! No need to buy pants!)

However, I find it very difficult to choose which brand to purchase cause I don't know which one would suit my boy.

If you are wondering how many brands are there in the market, here's the list:
1) BumWear
2) Happy Heinys
3) Fuzzi Bunz
4) bumGenius

This is just to name a few. There are a lot of other brands available and each brands describe theirs in a way that I may find it suitable for my son. *scratches head*

If only I could score some free samples like disposable ones, then I can determine which one would suit my boy best. (What to do, they are not cheap!! If I get one and it doesn't suit him, I can't wear it!)

So for now, my boy will have to look like this:

These scratches the sides of his legs. So we have to keep adjusting it. Poor him. 

So I'd rather he....
...promote Huggies wherever he goes til I can find him suitable cloth diapers..:)
