Hi Folks, we're on a tight budget, I posted earlier about diapering a tot and a newborn (due in January) for financial and potty training reasons I bought most of my stash now.
Before we moved I had a lot of prefolds and various covers...the onyl ones that fit were my little beetle organic merino wool one size covers. I sold the prefolds because I wasn't 100% happy with them and didn;t want to ship them cross country. Now I really regret it! I bought 60 flats because 1.) more economical 2.) mre "flexible"...I never did figure out prefolds with a snappi, we had just been trifolding them in a cover and I found poops got onto the cover legs way too much (esp on wool that is more of a PIA to wash). Now the flats are here, prepped, and They seem tiny after shrinking, they seem thin even all folded up like a prefold...not bad for a newborn but not good for my sensitive tot. I feel regret. But we just spent the money on them.
Can anyone help melike them better? :( I'm pretty upset. Imiss the absorbancy ofprefolds. I wish I never got rid of them! I did order one kawaii good night heavy wetter one size diaper (not here yet), one bumgenius 4.0 one size stay dry diaper (tried once) and one reg kawaii one size diaper (also not here yet) I wanted to try them out on my tot before I put them on our baby registry. I also have to say, as far as I know my wool covers aren't making me happy either (I have three) there are lanolized, and I had a flat and a three layer hemp insert in it today for dd (18 mo), first time we;ve used them since she was about 10 mo. The pee leaked through and got her pants a bit wet, and there was so much absorbancy! Also without extra leg gussets, poop gets on the legs a lot....
I so so wish I could just buy about 100 BG's or other pockety/AIO's.
Can anyone give me advice or help me like or modify my stasha bit without spending a mint? :( :(
