I have one in diapers and one that just started using the potty in the last two weeks. Having two in diapers is the main reason I switched to cloth. Spending $100-plus in diapers and wipes each month just wasn't an option for our family. We are saving a TON using cloth and I'm kicking myself for not doing it sooner. It helps me keep my money, my sanity and changing diapers isn't a chore. They're so cute and I know I'm not putting my cash directly into a landfill! Yay for cloth!

I only have one baby in diapers at the moment, but we are thinking of conceiving #2 soon. This definitely had me thinking about the "two in diapers". Right now, we are only using PFs & covers, which is pretty easy so far. However, I think w/ two, I'd like to start using the AIOs. OS would be best so I wouldn't really have to worry about which is whose.

Looks like an awesome Fluff Friday! I just checked out those diapers on Kellyscloset.com to learn more about them, they look great! I only have one child, but will have two soon enough (due in August) in cloth diapers... unless my daughter is done with potty training by the time she is 2 (not sure how likely that will be). But I would be excited to check out these cloth diapers on a newborn since I have no newborn cloth diapers. Eventually I will have to get some newborn cloth diapers, and once our second child is out of newborn size we should be all set since we have the BumGenius 3.0One Size Pocket diapers, which will fit both children. I will just most likely need to wash more often and hopefully potty training goes well so we might not have two in diapers for long.

I was thinking more about how I would manage with two in diapers--I think what would be helpful is teaching my oldest son how to help me out such as how to stuff the pocket diapers or to help sort out prefolds and covers. It would be a great teaching moment as well and it will also help keep him occupied while I change his younger sibling's diaper!

I forgot to mention another way I hope to manage with two in cloth diapers (once the baby is born sometime within the next two weeks): I have a small supply of one-size diapers to use with both kids too. I started with Bum-Genius OS but found they were not fitting right on my 2.5 year old (just a bit too small/low rise on her). So after reading about them on this blog (yay), I found that the Happy Heinys one-size worked just a little better. It has just enough extra room for my toddler and can still be made smaller once the baby arrives. I probably won't use the one-size with our newborn right away (I have a stash of NB/x-small diapers for the first few weeks), but eventually, I might be able to use the one-size diapers on both kids...making things a little easier to manage, not to mention less confusing for others who might end up changing some diapers around here (husband, in-laws, etc.). Any thing to make life (and sorting laundry) easier! Ha ha ha.

Angela Sundara... etc said...

I currently have three in diapers (for about two months we had FOUR, but our son finally trained!!!). One thing I've learned when it comes to changing diapers is that it's just a way of life. It's about as commonplace as grabbing a drink of water! Gender-neutral Bum Genius works wonders for me because I can throw all the diapers in one drawer, and adjust the size depending on who's getting the diaper change. Because my children are so close in age, and have different builds, I am able diaper all three (3yo, 2yo, and 7mo) in the same diapers.

You know how sometimes you feel like a fulfilled housewife doing certain chores? For me, cloth diapering is fulfilling (whereas disposable diapering is just a chore). There's something nice about putting some freshly washed fluff on your babies, and (up until two days ago, thanks to my hubby installing the BG diaper sprayer) dunking out the poop in the toilet. (Now I get to enjoy spraying them out)

My current system involves the following ingredients:
A stash of BG's and some FB's
A stack of homemade cloth wipes
A tupperware container with baby-bit solution (I dunk the wipes in as needed)
A 5 gal bucket...
...Lined with a Planetwise cloth pail liner (I have two and rotate them with the wash)
And a diaper sprayer

I easily fill a 5gal bucket full of fluff and wipes by the end of the day. I usually run yesterday's load before lunch the next day, and by evening I process and stuff everything and stock the table before the rest of the stash runs out.

Katrina said...

When I started CDing eight months ago I had two in diapers. I choose to use the one size Bum Genius because I could use the same diaper for both boys. I color coordinated by size so that I could quickly grab the right diaper for each child. When my oldest potty trained and outgrew the Bum Genius, I didn't have any "wasted" diapers since my youngest could wear them.

Kelly said...

I only have one in diapers right now, but I often think about what it would be like to have two. I think the biggest difference would be washing more often. I have pocket diapers right now, but I am thinking next time I have a newborn, I will buy either some fitteds and covers or a Bummis package. Then I would probably designate a couple colors for the older child and a couple for the younger so I can keep them adjusted and know, for example, if I pull out a pink diaper it is going for the older child or a yellow for the younger.

So far I only have one in cloth diapers. We would like to try for another baby when the first one is getting ready for potty training. Since I am currently using the one-size snap type of diapers, if I had another baby I would choose a different brand or go with one-size diapers to keep them seperate. Having the luxury of having the kids in seperate rooms would probably help too for organization.

Matt, Sara and Kinsley :) said...

I only have one little one in diapers, but hopefully that will change soon. I think I will manage by having a better system of organization to keep all the different sizes separate or get FABULOUS one-size diapers like these! I wish I could afford a whole one-size system, but it is WAY out of the price range right now. (Esp because I am having trouble with repelling from the 3 OS that I DO have).

I have one baby in diapers, but I think 2 would basically mean twice the laundry. I use one-sized bumgenius primarily, so ideally, both of my children would be wearing the same diapers. I would just have to double up my stash!

I currently only have one in diapers but that will be changing in 4 short months! My oldest was just out of diapers completely when #2 arrived so this will be a major change for me to have two in diapers. I have been thinking about it more and more each day and realize that I can never really prepare for it until it happens. I can say I am not a good planner or organizier and work better under pressure :)

Wow! What strong ladies you all are who have more than one in dipes.
Thank God, mine all seemed to potty train before their siblings arrived.
I agree about the one size dipes - be they pockets or otherwise, that would be a real blessing with more than one in diapers.
I think I would probably not use all pockes (too cost restrictive) but maybe onesize contours with different size (and color for easy grabbing) covers.

I have only one baby in diapers, but if I had more I'd be even happier with cloth because where I live the garbage is picked up once per week and we have to pay for each bag, no way I want that many dirty diapers stinking up the place!

Nikki said...

I currently have only one in diapers, but we are passively trying (read:not preventing) for #3, so I may have 2 in diapers at some point, if we get pregnant in the next few months. I did sposies with my first, and converted to cloth when #2 was about a year old. I hope to start potty training my son sometime next summer, using cloth for that as well. I only with I had known about all the cool cloth options when my first was born. I would have saved so much money on diapers!

As for organization, I think cloth is easier to manage with multiple kids in diapers. My sister has two currently in disposables, age 2 and newborn, and she's always running out to buy one size or another. With one size cloth dipes, you never have that problem!

I only have 1 child but I cannot wait to have more. I think that 1) I'd take all the advice given by the previous posters and 2) I'd have to buy a few more One-Size Pockets so that we could have enough for 2 days for 2 kids!

AScott said...

I have an 8 month old in Softbums diapers. I am relatively new to cloth and have only been using them for about 2 months, but I love them! I instantly have the feeling of saving money not having to buy disposables and diaper genie refills. Sometime this year we'll be trying for our second and have pondered what to do with two babies in cloth. I already wash her diapers once a day, so will mostly likely have to buy more and continue my once a day wash!

I only have 1 in diapers right now, and the thought of 2 overwhelms me! B is hard enough now to change, he crawls away the minute the diaper comes off (and before that was trying to leap off the changing table!). I guess with 2+ in diapers, it would be easiest to have one space dedicated to diapering so everything is in one place.

I love the time I spend w/ my daughter when she is on the changing table...belly raspberries, tickles and lots of kisses! So I know that having two diapers at the same time will give me (or DH) some special one on one time with each child.

I also change my kids diapers at the same time. In fact, with two close in age, I've finally learned to do almost everything at the same time. My kids now eat, bathe, dress, and sleep at the same time. It saves me time and mental energy trying to keep track of when each need was met.

I was wondering if you have two in cloth (which I don't), would you use the same brand of diapers or not? I guess it depends on the shape and size of each child, right??
I guess having two would give parents a good "excuse" to buy more fluff!!!! :)
(although I don't even have one in diapers and I don't need the excuse!!! It's addicting. :)

Right now, diapering my toddler is fairly easy. It's only at night and for naps, and she won't move if I ask her not to. Now, with the 10 month old... it's more tiring than a run around the block and requires advanced wrestling skills.

How do I manage 2 in diapers? Well, luckily 1 is potty trained and the other is training, so their cloth usage is mostly for night and nap, with 1-3 more dipes per day for the "in training" daughter. But, in about 8 weeks or so, we'll be adding another blessing to the mix!
So, how will I manage 3 in diapers?
1. have an ample stash ~ my diaper laundry is currently on an every other day basis, and I'd like to keep it that way!
2. Maintain the organization! Everything has its place, and should return there once cleaned ` stuffed and ready to go!
3. Continue training DD#2... the sooner she's using the potty and not dipes (or having accidents) the easier idea 1 and 2 will be! (At that time I'll probably transition my older two to using just the 8 med fuzzi bunz for night and nap and assign all my bumgenius 3.0 OS to DD#3, who also has her own stash of fuzzis and some PFs)

I only have one in cloth dipes, but diapering 2 would mean I get more bang for the buck...Hubby is looking forward to reusing the sized dipes (he's been boasting to every1 about our CDs). For me it would mean buying a bigger wet bag since we used sized diapers mostly usually AIOs/some pockets (have some one-sized) and definitely being more organized. For hubby, it means he'll have more diaper prepping to do (he helps me sort nighttime from daytime dipes and put the liners in each dipe).

I have two boys in diapers. My youngest is in cloth full time, and my oldest is day time potty trained and only wears cloth at night. When I first started CDing, both boys were in diapers and I used BumGenius one size diapers.

I only have one child, but when I have two in diapers, I will probably designate a couple colors pre-adjusted to one child and a couple to the other, again pre-adjusted (I use one size diapers). I will probably purchase either fitteds and covers or a bummis package for the newborn days, and then just a few more one size diapers. And I anticipate doing laundry a little more often!

KayStarGoesRawr said...

Another way I might do organization for two cloth diapered kiddos would be to have a separate drawer in a dresser or storage drawers for each child.

Happy Tuesday, all! (:

Violet Gonzalez said...

Having 2 in diapers... we are considering whether to have a second child. Without a doubt if we do, we will have 2 in cloth. I think that I would be able to do a better job form the start with cloth now that I know what I like and don't like.

We do sized diapers during the day and BumGenius at nap and bed time. Both babies could share nap and bedtime diapers! woohoo

I would definitely need to be more consistent of getting laundry done though!

I am pretty new to cloth diapering, and only have one in diapers. When she was born, however, my 2 year old was still in diapers. At the time we were using disposables. It was crazy! It felt like we were constantly running to the store to buy diapers and wipes. The diaper pail was always full. And the smell! YUK!! Knowing what I know now about cloth and how easy it is to use, I wish I could turn back time and use cloth diapers on them both. I can't imagine how much money we spent and waste we sent to the landfills!!

I have two in diapers and my only comment is; laundry, laundry, laundry. I like to make it as simple as possible, so I use one size. I do not want to have to sort diapers or search for the right size for the right child.

Cristy said...

We have a 13 month old and a 1 week old. At this point we are using sposies on the newest. We are waiting for his cord to fall off to use cloth full time at home. I started to use cloth with him but it irritated his cord. Really I dont see much difference between CDing 2 and using sposies on 2. It will amount to more washes for my diapers, but I would have already been changing a diaper so the time won't be that different. I helped my Mom CD up to 3 at a time and even that wasn't a big deal as long as we had enough diapers and kept them washed. Granted, the diaper pail does fill up a bit faster though :) I am excited about getting to use my diapers for our second though! I am so pleased to be able to look at how much I have spent and sewn and realize that it was for TWO babies!!! Not just 1!!

I have 2 boys close in age. One is 17 1/2 months and the other is 2 months. Having them both in cloth makes life pretty easy. My older boy is usually a bit more patient about things. I don't find it much harder to deal since the early months with a baby are probably the easiest. Now, when DS #2 gets older and is mobile.. then we'll talk about it being difficult. Sometimes it does get a little chaotic, I'll say that much. But usually that is when the end of the day approaches and both are tired.

My oldest is hardest to change. He wiggles and worms around like crazy. He's always on the go these days. Run here.. run there! In order to get him to sit still I usually have to bribe him with something.. Sometimes one of his toys works. Others it MUST be my cell phone or something else that is "way cool". He's also extremely ticklish. Fastening his diaper gets the loudest giggle snorts out of him that I have ever heard. It makes me laugh right with him

I currently only have one in diapers but #2 in diapers is on it's way (16 weeks and counting) My first 2 boys were in prefolds and covers until they got bigger. Now #2 is in OS BG and med/lg FBs. And I have stocked up on a stash of sm FB seconds for the new arrival. So I think I will just have two seperate piles of diapers, one for each kid but it will be nice to just put a few OS diapers in the diaper bag and adjust for whoever may need it.

Hi, I have a baby and a preschooler that wears nightime diapers. I also would like a 3rd child in a year or two. I think a one-size diaper is best for multi-children.

I think the different color per sizes is a good idea to keep track of who's is who's.

I kind of cringe at the thought of needing twice as many cloth as I have now, though I know it would be a money saver in the long run!

I'm really curious to see how using OS diapers would work with having two kids. It seems like a lot of them would be bulky for the first few weeks on a newborn, but we'll see how it goes. It seems to me that getting OS and being able to use them for two kids (or at least for one kids and for a few months/year or so with a second child if they hold up that long), would be VERY economical! I also bought a couple different sizes of prefolds - I've been able to use the small ones that I bought for my newborn/youngest as doublers/inserts for the diapers my toddler is wearing as we work on potty training. So anytime I can double use stuff, I figure it is saving money and making things easier!

I have 3 in diapers! 1 is only at night the other 2 are full time and not ending anytime soon. I have enough diapers to do laundry every other day. The hardest part for me is doing the laundry early enough in the day to make sure the covers are dry by bedtime.

I love the money we save and that I'm not filling the landfills with diapers.

I left a comment on the story "Double Fun". Fun story topic since I have 3 in diapers.

I have two little ones (6 months and 2 yrs) in diapers all the time and one more (4 yrs) that wears diapers at night. I use prefold and covers during the day (small and large), so it is easy to separate the sizes. At night, they wear FuzziBunz and BumGenius and each kid has their own color for night.

The best part of cloth diapering 3 kids is thinking about how much I have saved ($ and trash) now that my littlest is wearing the same diapers we bought 4 years ago. My prefolds are showing some serious signs of wear!! It's great!
