We are in the process of moving from one house to another and the situation has been difficult at best and brain-frying at worst. In the midst of all this I have had Lily is disposable diapers after not using any disposables all Summer. It should make for one less thing to worry about, right?
I had forgotten how hot they are! Every time I take one off of Lily it is stuck to her lower back with sweat. Even in the night and when she is in the air conditioning the whole time she wears it, she is still all hot and sweaty.
Then I remembered that time right after having a baby. My midwife gave me some of those Chux pads to lay on so I wouldn’t wreck my sheets. Ugh. Those were really hot too! I was so glad to get rid of those and just lay on a towel instead. Plastic and paper just do not make for comfortable skin!
So for her own coolness and comfort, I have her back in her comfy, cozy cloth diapers. If we can time it right, the diapers shouldn’t have to wait longer than usual to be washed during our move. And if they do, well then that is just life.
Disposables always leak with poos for us. I love my cloth diapers because I can feel confident that she will not leak. Nothing like being out and about and baby in a disposable for “ease” and then both of you needing a complete wardrobe change!
3 Cheers for cloth diapering!
