Cloth Diapering Two

We had a great cloth diapering routine for my daughter’s first 18 months of life. We tried several different types, AIO, pockets, fitteds and wool, prefolds and covers, and they all worked pretty well. We used pockets mostly, but would switch it up with Flip stay dry inserts and covers. At different stages in my daughter’s life, different diapers would work better than others, but I was always able to find something that worked and that I liked. Our wash routine was also something that came relatively easy as well. I had to tweak it a bit in the beginning, and again when we moved, but never had any major issues or problems. For those first 18 months, I wondered why anyone wouldn’t want to cloth diaper. Then I had my son. I was thrilled when I found out I was pregnant again when my daughter was only nine months old. I already had a stash that could easily diaper three children at once, but when I found out I was having a boy, and couldn’t resist adding a few more. I was fully prepared (or so I thought) to cloth diaper two kids at once. I figured I might have to do a couple extra loads, but didn’t think diapering one or two babies would be a big change. Let’s just say those first few weeks weren’t as smooth …

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 …

TWINS: Double The [Cloth Diaper] Pleasure!

Many people think we’re crazy when they discover we use cloth diapers; especially with twins! However, we cannot imagine diapering our twins any other way. Cloth is easy, fun and just great. I. Am. In. Love. Yes, I am in love with cloth diapers (my children too, of course)!Our current stash consists of enough diaper for approximate 35 diaper changes; allowing us to wash diapers every 2-3 days. With a few key accessories, a working laundry routine, a night-time diaper solution and a wonderful nanny who is totally on board with cloth diapering, we have built a stash we love and have never looked back. Our current mission is to educate and convert other loving moms and dads to cloth as well. The Stash:bumGenius 3.0 One-Size Pocket DiapersGro Baby Diaper SystembumGenius All-in-One Organic One-Size Diaper Our Top 8 Reasons why Cloth works! 1. $$$$$$We are not running out buying diapers at the store – which saves not only money – but precious time as well! Since the diapers are designed to fit most babies from roughly 7-35 pounds, we are good to go for a loooooong time…hopefully until potty-training! 2. Getting the Right FitOur twins have very different builds. Having diapers that work for our long, skinny boy and shorter, thicker lady – this makes a world of difference when it comes to diapering twins! Since investing in a few …

Works for our 2

I have three kiddos and two of them are in dipes, am I ready for my 2 year old to potty train? Well she is trying and I’m not going to push, she will get it before I know it. My son is 3 months now and since I ventured into cloth diapering because of him I figured why not with my daughter also (especially because her sposies are so much pricier). Since I was buying to save money I decided to buy prefolds (PFs) and one size covers and some one size dipers. I have bleached chinese PFs (12) and unbleached chinese PFs (12) 4 snappis and 4 WonderWraps which I love, no leaks ever! I also have 1 med Thirsties cover and 1 small. My BumGenius OS 3.0 I reserve for overnight (my daughter is a heavy wetter), I have 6 in gender neutral and just added a blossom AIO for my daughter, just figured I could splurge on one girly dipe and I am hoping to add a few GroBabys into our mix. Our stash works really well for 2 in diapers that are different ages because with the pfs you can fold them for each child depending where they need the most absorbancy. For my son I use the newspaper fold and for my daughter the jelly roll works great and then the BumGenius you can …

A little bit of organizing and a lot of believing

Two teething four month olds + 30 diaper changes a day with 2 parents, 1 who works three 24 hour shifts a week + a cat who thinks he is a baby that needs bottles and diaper changes + a million and one tank and pond fish = WHEW – complete and utter chaos. So you can imagine that when I announced the switch to cloth diapers, I was met with, “Are you insane?” “Why would you make things harder for yourself?” “Cloth? We used those in the 70’s!” “You were given a million and one boxes of disposable diapers at your shower. Aren’t you going to use those?” Honestly? I had thought about cloth diapers for a mille-second as I spent 24 weeks on bedrest. I had plenty of time to do research, but it was so easy to ask for people to bring disposable diapers to my shower. I had a great changing table that would hold disposable diapers well in the drawer. I had a sister who had boy/girl preemie twins like me who would tell me which brand worked best with who and when. But then it all changed. My son got a diaper rash and it wasn’t your ordinary diaper rash. It turned to open wounds. It bled and my happy son turned into a miserable kid with parents who were reduced to tears every …
