Well it's DAY 7 of the DDL Flats & Handwashing Challenge. Did you ever think this day would get here? For those of you that have not been following my recent journey... you a bit too late now. Haha! I'm just kidding. You can totally catch up... or just read the end of the book right here. I'm currently taking part in the Second Annual Flats and Handwashing Challenge hosted by Dirty Diaper Laundry. For 7 days I have been using only flat cloth diapers and handwashing them in an effort to prove that cloth diapering can be affordable and accessible to all. You can learn more about the rules and why this challenge was started by visiting the announcement post.
Well here we are at the end of the Flats & Handwashing Challenge. It's been a great experience and has opened my eyes to different possibilities. Am I going to switch over to a full time supply of flats? Probably not. I do like the option of flats while traveling though. They're easy, they're compact, and if one or all go missing or get ruined I won't cry over it. I also know that I have a plan if my washer and/or dryer ever goes out. The biggest thing I've gotten out of this challenge is the knowledge that cloth diapering is a great option for those with little to no money. I can now say I've done it myself and it is possible!
That being said, I am so happy to break out my fluff stash again! Yay for modern cloth diapering. Oh how I've missed you. In honor of Day 7 of the challenge, I've done a cartoon timeline of the emotional changes that one goes through during this challenge. I had hoped to do a 7 day cartoon, but time constraints while camping have left me with a 4 day cartoon. Enjoy! I know I'll be sipping some champaign with my modern cloth diapers at midnight. Will you? Sorry. No flats allowed.
