Our view on Cloth Diapering
We have recently made the switch to cloth diapers. And I can say I love it! It is one of those things you can become easily addicted to 🙂 My son had been peeing out of this diapers constantly and I was feeling the pink money wise when it comes to buying another box of diapers that I am throwing away. Oh yea I got my money’s worth alright…NOT. I just hate the idea of throwing money away so I found out a friend of mine cloth diapered from taking her newborn’s photos and she was obsessed about it like we all are and sort of talked me into it. And then I find out two other friends of mine from town both cloth diaper so well there it went I was hooked already and hadn’t bought the first diaper. HA HA.
Well I found the cloth diaper swapper page on facebook and bought a few used covers and inserts on there for cheap and then got some prefolds and pocket diapers off of cottonbabies.com. Then a couple more from a BOGO free deal. I really like the prefolds and covers. We’ve been using the pocket diapers for naps/bedtime which works great because you can double stuff those and he won’t pee out.
The poo is what is getting to me. Most of the time since we’ve made the cloth diaper switch his poo is more solid and plops into the toilet. It’s weird how his poo changed since we switched to cloth but it did and I’ve read on other blogs the same thing. But anyways I ramble…sometimes we get some icky poos and it completely grosses me out scraping it out into the toilet so we’re going to do the homemade diaper sprayer toilet attachment. For about $20 they say we can make a diaper sprayer instead of buying the $40 one. I have a DIYer hubby so this will be no problem! Plus he had to scrape a diaper the other day and said he wasn’t too keen on it…haha. Here’s a link to the blog that has the info on the diaper sprayer….http://gidgetgoeshome.com/2008/08/25/diy-tutorial-make-your-own-diaper-sprayer/
Just my two cents. In case you’re wondering we are using 3 BumGenius and 1 Alba pockets, 2 grovia shells which are a little small for my chunker, 2 flips which I love, 1 homemade camo cow patties cloth diaper, 1 thirsties duo (which I loved until I got the flips and now I love the flips better), and 14 prefolds. Also here is a link to a facebook page that sells cheap well made cloth diapers! http://www.facebook.com/pages/Fluffy-Bums-Beyond/227378074009209
And here are a few pics featuring some new backgrounds I just bought…and my extremely cooperative photo subject…hahaha.
