Man, I always miss the discussions. But in case any of you are thinking about it and thinking that ship has sailed, I just wanted to mention that we just now started (2 weeks ago) and as you can see, DS is nearly 10 months old.
I know we'd all like to think our cuties will be potty-trained early, but most kids I know IRL are closer to 3 when it happens. There is still loads of time to recoup your money.
The thing that finally pushed me to try (after months of lurking on EFF and thinking about it) was dealing with constant irritation on DS's bum. Even though I've tried a wide range of CDs over the last 2 weeks, they all do better on his skin. I haven't applied a single drop of ointment, and the skin on his bum is now just as healthy as the rest of him.
Plus, it's fun and cute. DH was not on board at all, but a few cute diapers turned him right around.
I'm sorta lazy (did I just say that out loud?). So if I can do it, I'm pretty sure anyone can.
