I posted recently that I have had Lily (19months) in disposables while I navigated the stormy waters of morning sickness. I wondered what she would think when I switched her back.
The first cloth diaper I put on her as a bumGenius. I didn’t point it out to her that it was any different than her usual disposable diaper, I just did a matter-of-fact diaper change and sent her on her way. She didn’t blink an eye and did not seem to notice a difference in any way.
At the next diaper change, I tried something different. I let her pick. I showed her a plain white disposable diaper and then I asked her if she would rather wear the pretty pink bumGenius. Guess which one my girly-girl picked…
The bumGenius of course.
But she also realized she could remove it easier than the disposable, which was not as good. (But I have a little trick for that and I will share it in a future post.)
Then there was a nausea relapse so we had a few more days of disposables in there and then today I tried her in a bulkier set-up: chinese prefold and Bummi’s Super Whisper Wrap. She was a lot less happy with that solution, and yanked at her diaper a bit. I loosened it up around her waist and she was a little happier. I need to remember not to put those on as tight as I put the disposables on. She complained once more in the next five minutes and then forgot all about it and ignored it like any other diaper. I am sure she will get used to it again quickly and hopefully this will help her to start feeling it more when she wets. She wore a couple more of that combination today with no protest at all.
