Dear Diaper Fairy,
My husband and I are frugal, digging ourselves out from under debt slowly, so we purchased all our diapers used. Being a military family, our income doesn't allow for big purchases often, so I'm trying slowly to build up our diaper supply up. Most of the diapers we have we purchased used before DD was born last June and are now falling to pieces literally in the wash. We need new diapers but can't afford to buy many at once, even though many of the ones we have are becoming non-functional. I'm not picky at the types of diapers we use. We have AIOs, pockets, prefolds, fitteds and covers. I happily use them all, though I really like AIOs and pockets best (and DH won't use anything but those). DD is a heavy wetter at night and we are now searching for something to make it through the night w/o her soaking through everything. We'd love to try a hemp prefold to see if that would get her through, or maybe a nice fitted or wool cover (I've heard those work well, but have never tried one).
Her chubby legs put her into a Large in most diapers right now, though I have been told some brands mediums would work as well. She is tall, too, so things with high rise would fit her best (like Large HH's, Cuddlebuns, etc.) These diapers will be used for her and then our next children if they last long. I am OK with using girlie diapers on a boy though if that is what we have next
: Gender prints don't really bother me. Used, new, stained, everything gets put to good use in our home.
We don't use cloth wipes here (DH won't do it), but we could use another wet bag for when we travel, because it seems we can't take one in a store and leave it in the car at the same time (just won't work no matter how hard we try lol).
So please diaper fairy, I make some good cookies! I'll be sure to leave some out for you if you visit our home.
