So how goes the cloth diapering?

June 11th, 2009 at 05:05 pm

I am actually pretty surprised at how well we are doing with the cloth diapers.

We have our lazy moments, but in general I now have enough (there was a good sale from the lady selling) that I can over a day between washing. And in general we use them, most of the time.

Certain events, like the zoo trip we will be using disposable, I do not want to have to lug around a zoo dirty diapers! But for home or short trips cloth works great.

I did have to find some bloomers because EL can take off the velcro, but those were hand me downs. I have to think about the summer though, should use a cloth swimmer, but I have some leftover ones so we will use most of those up first.

My all time favorite find though is the 'wet bag' perfect for accidents as well as wet diapers, and I bought one for my mother for swimsuits when she travels.

I still am addicted to paper wipes though.

    I use Happy Heiney's on the Bean. We;ve been using them since he was about 3 months old and they have saved us a bunch of money.

    WE went lazy and did the diaper service mostly (for home and short trips - clothe too. For long trips - yeah - no need to carry around dirty diapers - they are bulky if nothing else).

    It's true what they say. They potty train much easier/faster on clothe (most kids anyway). I almost fell over when a group of moms with 4yos were talking the other day about how their kids wouldn't #2 on the potty. I am sure it's quite normal, but since both my kids graduated diapers 100% before they turned 3, it just caught me offguard. Something I havn't dealt with in a long while!
