I feel I should mention that although cloth diapers still have a negative perception within the general public, there's a strange phenomenon that happens to moms when they DO start using cloth diapers: they get addicted! Now who thought diapers were something you could obsess about? But as a mom who’s been bitten with the cloth diaper bug, I can attest that can happen all to easily! All of a sudden you can find yourself browsing for sale or trade boards in your "spare" minutes on the computer, or trying to talk your hubby into letting you spend extra money on diapers, or even hiding your cloth diaper spending from hubby, because you're ashamed to admit how much you've spent! There’s a whole cloth diapering subculture – fad brands, expensive handmade diapering items, and “stalking” the most sought after products.
If you’re looking for other cloth diaper mamas to connect with, you'll find plenty of them frequenting the forums at Mothering.commune, The Babycenter, Diaperswappers, Cloth Diaper Nation, Diaperpin, Diaper Jungle, and Hyena Cart.
