I was giggling this morning as I read through some of the blog posts that came through my inbox over the weekend. Here are a few of my favorites:
She tried! Hayden’s mama posted photos of her attempts at using cloth diapers here. The photos were taken from a distance so I can’t tell for sure what it is that is on the baby. One photo looks like it is a prefold, but then the front of the diaper looks like it might be something else. Any thoughts?
Classic marital discussions over diapers. Jack’s mama is learning about when she might have to upsize her diapers. I laughed when she mentioned the disagreement she is having with her husband about what they are going to use for overnight.
Go mama, go! Ashton’s mama waxes eloquent in an adorable letter to her three month old baby. She is learning about elimination communication and trying bumGenius and Fuzzi Bunz as she dives into the world of alternative diapering solutions. (photo from her blog)
Huh? Then I stumbled on this little gem and had to wonder if the author is actually a parent that has used diapers.
“Concerning diapers, it’s a bit more complicated. Yes, the cheaper ones will ultimately do the same job, but because the system for keeping the wetness away from the baby’s skin isn’t as good, you may find the baby will be more prone to rashes, which means using more creamand spending more money. Another problem is the cheaper diapers can leak during the night which will result in more sleepless nights.”
Some disposables work, but my own experience with the cheaper ones is that they just plain don’t work… Really, have you ever had a blowout with a newborn in a disposable? Can you imagine doing that in a cheap diaper?
