Our adventures in cloth diapering officially began about 4 months ago when our son was born. He is actually our third child. We have two older girls, but when they were born, we had no idea that modern cloth diapers existed or that normal people used them! With our son we decided to try it out. He is now 4 months old and exclusively breastfed and exclusively cloth diapered. Now, most parents who have a breastfed baby know that constipation is generally NOT a problem for your babe. That is true with our son too, however, we have two sure fire ways of getting him to poop.
The first is to put him in his trusty Happy Heinys Diaper (the adorable one with the monkey print). 95% of the time as soon as that soft lining touches his bottom, he poops. Sometimes we don’t even get it snapped before he starts. Even our girls affectionately refer to it as the “poop diaper”! Our second surefire way to create some bowel action is to set him in his Bumbo Seat. Something about that position causes him to poop. Every. Single. Time. And usually within about 10 seconds.
So, if your baby ever suffers from constipation, you too may want to try one of our “tried and true” methods
