We are planning a family cruise vacation this comming winter, and will be taking our children, including the baby, who will be 18 months. Has anyone gone on a cruise wile CDing? We thought about just purchasing some disposables for the trip, but I really hate to just switch so drastically for our vacation, and the baby is our redhead with some skin sensativities, not to mention that I would have no idea what size or brand to get. We have used GroVia and gDiapers before (not my favorite systems, but they are great for some things), and I still have 2 covers of each, thou the gDiapers are meduims, and I think baby will be solidly in a large by then. I was thinking of just buying a few extras of these and doing their disposable inserts for the trip. Has anyone tried this? Which one would be better? Or both?
We typically use GMD prefolds paired with various covers. I checked, and the cruise ship does not have self-service laundry onboard. They do have a laundry service, but I wouldn't trust my diapers to it, so for all intents, there will be no way to launder anything apart from rinsing in the sink and hanging over the shower. I was thinking that the gDiapers lend themselves more to that, since they're just a 2-layer cotton cover and snap-out plastic liner. Oh, it's a 9-day cruise to the Bahamas. I was thinking maybe 5-6 covers and at least one 50-pack of liners might do the trick. The more I think about it, the more I think gDiapers are a better option, with the snap-out liners, I could easiy rinse them and they'd dry overnight and hopefully avoid any stinkies. Then if we did end up with a leaky poo, it would be possible to wash it by hand in the sink and give it a couple of days to dry- or maybe even send it to be laundered, since there's no PUL to get ruined. Hmmm... I'd appreciate any advice from the BDDT gang, TIA!
