Cloth Diapering Gone Awry

When I first informed my family I would be using cloth diapers on my daughter, they were all very supportive. My mom even drove more than 2 hours with me to the closest brick and mortar store which carries cloth diapers so I could check them out in person before deciding to buy. When my daughter was a newborn, we used mainly Kissavlus Fitted Diapers in Size 0 with Thirsties Diaper Covers during the day and bumGenius One Size 3.0 pocket diapers at night. As soon as I put that first cloth diaper on her, I was hooked, as was my husband. My parents were equally impressed and we couldn’t get enough of her cute, fluffy butt! We had no issues with leaks, blow-outs, etc. and couldn’t believe how easy they were to use. However, that hasn’t always been the case for Kendall’s other caretakers – my mom and daycare! A few months after my daughter was born, my husband and I decided it was time for a date night. My parents came over to baby-sit (certainly not a chore in their minds!). We laid out all the cloth diapering supplies, instructed my mom in which diapers to use when and left. When I arrived home that evening, my daughter was sleeping soundly in her crib. My parents said they’d had no issues with diapers or otherwise and went home. …

Traipsing Poo Paws

This entry was submitted by Andrea L. and is the winner of a $25 Gift Card to Kelly’s Closet!This story wasn’t so funny at the time, but it is looking back. Looking forward to the reading the results of the contest! When we were still in that period of constant sleep deprivation that comes with a newborn baby, we sometimes got a little lazy. One of the things we did (since our baby co-sleeps) was to keep a few of his Bum Genius diapers in bed with us and just do midnight changes without getting up. The end result was that there were often a few dirty diapers at the foot of the bed. One morning I woke up and noticed that there were quite a few yellow spots on our white sheets. Our cat had stuck both of her front feet into one of the (very) dirty diapers and walked around on the bed. The best part was when my long-suffering husband (who had the cat foisted on him when we got married and the cloth diapers foisted on him when we decided that I should stay at home) woke up to find that he had a few spots of mustard yellow poop on his chest too from when the cat slept on him. He told the cat that he was going to sell her to the Gypsies– luckily …

Silly Post: The Unexpected Visitor

Cloth diapering provides additional hilarity to an already amusing time in our lives as parents, when funny and silly stories are aplenty! However, what about the silly things we do? The other day I was feeling really crummy. I was tired, I had a headache and my tummy wasn’t feeling so great – the whole nine yards. As we sat down for dinner I was not even in the mood to eat so my oldest daughter, Aaliyah, asked “Mama, why aren’t you eating?” “I don’t feel good sweetie. I have cramps.” Well, we all know how well children actually hear sometimes – so she asked with the funniest confused expression, “You have CRAYONS?” LOL! Ok, so I could see if she had mistaken crabs for cramps, but crayons? “No, sweetie… mama has pains in her belly.” “Ohhhh… you have paints and crayons in your belly.” Honestly, it hurt to laugh but I just couldn’t help myself! I suppose that would make all the sense in the world for a 4 year old… after all, can anyone imagine feeling well if they had paints and crayons inside their belly? My husband, seizing the opportunity to tease me, told my daughter, “You’re just going to have to get used to your mommy. She never feels good.” Naturally I tried to defend despite knowing my husband was teasing… so went on to say …

A very messy adventure!!!

As I read the post “Diapering Times Two!” post I remembered I had written about one of my adventures from a couple of months ago! I thought you and yours might get a laugh out of it, since you all can appreciate a good cloth diaper story. I was sitting on my favorite chair with my children, watching Toy Story 2, when suddenly there was an abnormally intense stench of poop. I looked down to notice that Glory, my two-year-old, had taken her poopie FuzziBunz off (again!) and placed it on my chest, and the big ball of poop rolled out onto my shirt. (note: when you have five little kids climbing on you, spitting on you, hugging and delivering toys, shoes, and miscellaneous items from all over the house, then you can kind of understand how she could plop a diaper on my chest while I’m zoned out in front of a movie without noticing…) UGH! I scooped the poop back into the cloth diaper and grabbed Glory’s hand; off to the changing table we go, poop smeared down her legs. I plopped the poo in the toilet and then plopped Glory on the changing table. Alas, out of cloth wipes! I scrounge around for a dirty shirt, or something, and dunk it into my wipes solution. By now her poo has smeared all over the changing table that …
