omg charlotte! so cute.

i've made a point of not buying a new bag of disposables when our last bag ran out. we were "only" using them for overnight and travelling, but in reality i was stuffing a couple in my purse every time i went out instead of packing cloth. it's not such a hardship to use cloth out either, it's just a couple extra steps of making sure i have a bag for dirties and them being bulkier... only an issue if i'm going to be out all day. but i was getting lazy and there were days when lydia was in disposables from morning to morning. which is kind of dumb when you've already got all your cloth and the main reason you chose to do it in the first place was cost.


so yeah, i'm back in cloth full time. go me!

Thanks, annak! The stock looks pretty picked over, but I found a few good deals. Can't pass up a $5 diaper!

Charlotte looks so cute! She's totally rocking that diaper!

does anyone have any tips on using the insert style cloth diapers and not having the end of the insert that pokes out a tiny bit soak through clothes/blankets/sheets when wet?

we ordered some XS Fuzzi Bunz brand diapers because none of the diapers we had before she was born actually fit her yet because she is so small
http://www.amazon.com/FuzziBunz-Perfect-Cloth-Diaper-Apple/dp/B002OL1SX6/ref=sr_1_9?ie=UTF8&qid=1368730461&sr=8-9&keywords=fuzzi+bunz

at night when she is in her cosleeper everytime i pick her up when she wakes up to nurse her clothes in the back are wet and it's because of the open part of the diaper where you put the insert in. sometimes the insert pokes out a bit so when it's really wet it soaks through her clothes, blankets, sheets depending on how wet it is. so basically everytime she makes up to nurse i have to change her clothes.

i dont know if this is just a downfall of this style of diaper or if it's because she is so small and even the XS diapers dont fit her quite right. they are snug around her nice chunky belly though so im not sure the fit is the problem.

i try and jam the insert all the way into the diaper but obviously it's not helping

hey have you tried folding the insert a bit? that way it doubles the soaking ability in the back where girls need it. So fold it like a quarter of the way down and then stuff it maybe? those look similar to the cheapie pocket diapers we used for Dahlia but the inserts fit all the way in.
I hear you on having to buy more diapers because of tiny babies - I ended up giving some xs BumGenius I bought and used for like a month to designedtobekind and we're almost done with some size small BumGenius too.

We use inserts at night and used to fold them down, the Flip ones we use actually have lines on them telling you where to fold. Henry used to soak through a lot until we got some hemp doublers and put them under the inserts, we haven't had a problem since.

believe me, I know exactly how that goes!
somewhere I have the pictures we took when we first put Dahlia in her cloth diapers (she was around 6 lbs at that point maaybe)...and I didn't understand how they were supposed to fit/snap, so I had some crazy looped-over, almost tied thing going on. I was such a mess at the time that it took me a day or so to say "you know, something doesn't look right here..."

Anybody else participating in the Flats & Handwashing Challenge this week? I think I'm crazy, but I'm gonna attempt this again (did it when Samuel was 2yrs old) but now with a 6 month old, this should be interesting. I went to Walmart (eww, I know!) and got me 2 5-pack flour sack towels to use as flats for 15$ (10diapers for 15$. not bad eh?), to add to my already growing stash and I am now ready to go. The handwashing part will be the challenge this time, I think. Eli takes forever to fall asleep at night and that was my go-to when I did this with Samuel... wash at night. But now, hmm...

I realized this morning that many of our size one and size two covers are the same. So of course I had to coordinate Ada and Alice. Matching blackbird covers!

Awww. Cloth diapered siblings are the cutest <3

I'm going to try cloth diapering my three. We'll see how it goes with three little ones in cloth diapers! We've been using disposables, and I was starting to feel really guilty since I have a huge cloth diaper stash and it just seemed so wasteful to see the piles of dirty disposables in our trash :-(. I'm also hoping that 31 month old Lydia potty trains soon though so that it will just be the 3 month old twins in diapers...

ok who'd like 2 size small BumGenius? they were used for both my babies but still have plenty of life, they're I think the 2.0s and have the microfiber insert attached in the pocket with room to stuff another if you want - I think the real drawback to these old BG sized diapers is that the ones with the insert sewed in take longer to dry but they're still great diapers in our opinion. We went on to buy many of the one-size adjustable BGs, I hit up many buy x get x free deals so we must have like 30 by now, that we will use til Sierra pottytrains and then give away but I like to just get rid of things as we go.

So, if you want em PM me with your address! I know some of you have small babies, we just stopped using em on Sierra at 1yr old 'cause she's tiny

So uh, what would you do with a pee and poop soaked cloth diaper (from a baby not yet on solids) that you accidentally left sitting for 6 days? I'm tempted to just throw it out, but maybe it would be possible to clean it since it's just a cotton prefold?

I think cotton is probably your best bet to accidentally forget about. Try washing it and worst case, toss it if it comes out nasty. On the other hand, a prefold is probably cheap enough to toss?
