Help! Four-month-old already starting to "get it"! - Page 2

post #21 of 23
we really liked seventh generation disposables. it just worked well for us when we were out, and we were out most of the time. at home, i would usually jsut have him naked, but when out, i preferred to use disposables.

we would use one every 24 hrs. sometimes, i would take it on and off--so we would put a clean one on in the am, then go out for errands and stuff, and then come home and take it off, adn then put it on for bedtime, and if it was dry in the am, i would go ahead and leave it on, and take it off for the afternoon. so a diaper might last two days or three, but i woudl change them like underwear if we were out a lot, or whatever.

and then there were days when we were home and i'd just let it be naked time all the time and not use a diaper, though DH preferred to use a diaper once he was home because he was nervous about missing (and he was on duty after work! lol). so hawk would usually be in a diaper from about 7 pm until DH left at 7am or so.

I had never heard of the Gro Baby's before. They look like they might be a bit more trim than the average cloth diaper, especially in the crotch area, but maybe not until the baby is bigger--does anyone know if I'm right?
My baby is the same age as yours, and we use them now. They're WAY trimmer than the cloth inserts I use--they're basically the same thickness as a regular disposable, but they biodegrade really quickly (2-3 months rather than 500 years with a regular disposable).

7th generation and i think nature's way are a complete disposable, rather than insert, that biodegrade in 3-4 months. they ask that you remove poop from the diapers before disposing as to facilitate that process.
