Second Time’s a Charm

My name is Erin and I live in sunny Florida with my hubby and two little lovelies: Leonard (nearly 3) and Isabela (20 months).  I am a SAHM and a full-time Elementary Education student as well.  I am also the author of a little blog called The Hesitant Domestic.  I blog about everything under the sun, but mostly crafting, faith, and healthy living. My first experience with cloth diapering was when I was pregnant with my son and I got it in my head that I really wanted to cloth diaper.  I wanted to find an affordable option so I purchased a prefold kit from Bummis.  Once my son finally got here, I kinda freaked out about using the cloth diapers.  He was a few weeks old when we started with them and I was completely unsure about the fit, how I put them on, would they work right, were they comfortable, etc.  They seemed so bulky on him and I just didn’t know what to do.  Being the only person in my group of friends who cloth diapered and with no one to ask for help, I sold them on Craigslist and continued on with sposies feeling pretty defeated. When I was pregnant with my daughter I was really fortunate to be a part of a really great mommy message board and it seemed as though many of the …

Diapering a Newborn? Sold on Pockets!

When I first started looking into cloth diapering my son, I wanted the easiest way to go.. Prefolds and Snappis frightened me at first; I didn’t think I would stick with it if I went that route. So I started out with pocket; my first diapers were FuzziBunz pockets, bumGenius pockets, Haute Pockets, and Starbunz diapers. I wanted diapers that would be daddy and grandparent friendly so I wouldn’t have to be the only one changing diapers. Pockets fit that perfectly and I was sold! When my son came along I was over the moon to put him in cloth and see that fluffy little bum! All 7lbs 11oz of him fit into the diapers that I had, which I was thrilled about! It was pretty easy to just snap or Velcro the diaper on. I wanted the easiest way possible, even more so in those days of no sleep, and it looked so easy to just put the insert in the pocket. Daddy was sold on the diapers after that first diaper change and seeing how easy it was. Once he also saw how much money we were saving not having to run to the store to buy diapers like we did with our first son, he wished we would have cloth diapered from day one! After a little while, I got more willing to branch out to other …

My Cloth Diapering Journey

It’s official, it has happened to me…I have become a cloth diapering addict! I never thought that sentence would come out of my mouth! But now, not only do I say it, I say it to just about any one who will listen! I spent two years buying disposables for my oldest child who exploded out of them on nearly a daily basis when she was an infant. She was like a ticking time bomb for who ever was holding her at the moment of detonation! I was so frustrated but never even thought to change to cloth diapers. That is, until I was pregnant with my second child and my sister-in -law (who was also expecting) told me she was going to cloth diaper her baby. I was taken aback; did people still do that type of thing? Like many women my age, I had heard my mom tell me stories about cloth diapering and it sounded like a LOT of work…not to mention the “gross-factor”. Besides, I thought cloth diapers would never hold in more poo than a disposable! But, after that, the idea stuck in my head. I started to do some research online about the different types of cloth diapers and all that entails. I was quickly hooked. It turned out that cloth diapering looked like it could be the solution to all my diaper-explosion problems …

Nighttime Diapering is not Impossible

For a long time, I was of the belief that my heavy-wetting son would not be able to wear a cloth diaper and make it through the night. I was envisioning nights of 3 AM wake-up calls, fretting the need to search through his closet for clean sheets, the bureau for clean pajamas, and foraging for a clean diaper, not to mention the time spent helping said child fall back asleep. I was so concerned that I spent his first 8 months faithfully putting him in disposables. After a while, I began to think about the monetary waste of using disposables and concluded that I would try the cloth through the night. The first time I left him in cloth all night was an accident (he fell asleep and I put him in his crib forgetting that I hadn’t changed him). He wore a Haute Pocket and didn’t leak during the 10 hours he slept. I decided not to attempt that feat a second time and started to use my FuzziBunz that were very large on his little bottom. It took me a while to determine the best method for stuffing and ensuring dryness throughout the night, but I found a system that worked for us. I began by using a FuzziBunz and inserted a cotton prefold, that was folded into an insert. The result was a VERY large diaper …
