I bet you are wondering if I cloth diapered when I was there. Yes, I did!
We stayed at a Marriott Residence Inn where we had access to a laundry facility. If you are planning on traveling and staying at a hotel you can call ahead and ask in they have “Guest Laundry Facilities”. I decided to bring what I had in my stash: a Bumgenius Organic All in Ones, FuzziBunz, DryBees, and Wahmies.
I took two days worth and that seemed to be the right amount. One thing I would do differently would be to bring all pocket diapers. The all in one diapers are terrific however take a much,much longer time to dry in the drier.
I bet you are wondering if I used disposables at all? Yes, I am a bit embarrassed- owner of a cloth diaper business and I used disposables. You know it was a good thing and I will tell you why. Almost every single disposable diaper LEAKED!
I decided to use the disposables during our travel days. We left on a Monday morning to go to the airport and my son was hungry about half way there (45 min). I fed him and noticed a strong smell. I unbuttoned his one piece sleeper and there was a poop explosion right up his back. I went through more clothing changes when I used disposables. I also noticed that once my son peed I knew right away as the smell, just with a pee diaper, was so very strong. With the cloth diapers-honestly no smell.
Would I use cloth again traveling? Absolutely yes! But I would do 2 things different this time:
1) Bring all pocket cloth diapers; and
2) Use biodegradable flushable liners (to make cleaning up easier)
