So, a big parenting decision...to add to landfills or not to add to landfills, that is the question. Except keep in mind Alex and I both are not fond of laundry, especially the thought of two loads of cloth diapers every other day, (in order to get them squeaky clean). There is no diaper service out in our wonderful corner of the word, and I'm not really up for shuttling dirty diapers to Eureka 3 times a week...sooo.....
Enter G-diapers. Cloth diaper with a flushable/biodegradable insert. Though, us country folk on a septic system will NOT be flushing anything bigger than a couple of squares of TP down our toilet, (and even that has issues at times...)
We're giving it a try. At least on weekends and on days off, and when the parental figures are awake enough and have the energy enough to deal with a little tiny bit of extra work...disposables for the rest of the "No energy just trying to survive" time.
So, we'll start our G-diaper compost bin, and sometime later this year, Forrest's pees and turds will help to grow a beautiful fir tree, (we decided it was a little too close to home to use it as garden compost...)
