Example Testimonial: "This is the second time I have purchased these cloth diapers and I love them. They are not as bulky as the paper disposable ones and pay for themselves in two months. They do not contribute to the land fill because they are washable and do not tear as easily as disposables. When you find the right size they fit well the disposables seem inconsistent in fit. I do not have accidents all the time but when I do it is unexpected. With these diapers I can wear them every day like underwear and not worry about wasting the expense of a disposable"
