Warning for the not-so-crunchy and weak-at-heart…. This is super crunchy!
As the little guy’s first birthday is fast approaching, toilet-learning has been on my mind. The plan is to start once he is walking….this might be the reason he refuses to take more than a few steps. Along with preparing an area for toilet-learning, I’ve given a lot of thought about whether to introduce toilet paper to him or continue with his cloth wipes. It makes more sense to have him keep to cloth wipes when using the toilet. Well, that is all money-saving and earth-friendly, so I am clearly game! Anyways– have you seen how most toddlers are with toilet paper?!
Then it hit me…… Why am I going to make my son continue with cloth wipes while I am still using toilet paper. It made loads of sense switching from disposable wipes to cloth wipes for his bum, but never till now have I thought twice about it for myself. After realizing how much it started to bother me that I would use “normal” toilet paper, I’ve decided to take the plunge! Last night I wiped up a batch of family cloth, as it’s called in the cloth world. Family cloth, aka cloth-reusable- toilet “paper”
The set up seemed simple enough since the diaper pail is already beside the toilet. So I found a basket with a lid and — done!
Once the cloth has been used then toss into the pail with the diapers. Seriously could not be simpler, I just wash them right along with the little guy’s diapers and wipes.
