Milestones: Putting away the newborn clothes, buying the first pair of shoes, and unsnapping the diapers.
Unsnapping diapers? Yup, I’m a OS* (One-Size Diaper) user . I’d noticed the fronts of the diapers bunching and bulging oddly during the last week or two, and it suddenly occurred to me that my daughter was outgrowing her first rise. It’s been a long time coming – we started out cloth diapering with OS diapers at 2 months on the first set of snaps. She’s a tiny thing, so it’s just now, at 11 months, time for her to graduate to the second set.
It’s one more reminder that she is, more quickly than I’d necessarily like, growing up.
And it’s just one more reason why I love my OS diapers. Although it would be fun to buy another whole stash of diapers (sized medium) right now, it’s nice for the family budget that we don’t have to.
*One-Size diapering systems, like Happy Heinys, BumGenius, Flip, Knickernappies and FuzziBunz, are meant to grow with your baby. These styles reduce or eliminate the need for multiple stashes in small, medium, and large sizes, and can be especially useful when diapering more than one child.
