If you have a Whole Foods near you, check out their store brand (365).  We used them at preschool and at least at the time, they did not have the easy open sides.  I'm pretty sure they have them in...

If it is feasible, how about a shower with a handheld shower head once in a while?  My 3.5-yo DS loves the shower and especially if he gets to hold the sprayer.

I agree with the PP's, there is no need to rush it if you don't feel ready.  For the morning wake-ups, you could try using white noise (we have a HEPA air filter that serves that purpose), keeping...

I just call it nursing or mommy milk, but DS (who nursed until 2.5 yo) called it "side" or "mommy side".  He picked that up from me saying something about nursing on the other side....

Agree on more pre-rinsing and/or more frequent pre-rinsing.  We pre-rinse every day but sometimes save them in a laundry basket and do the wash the next day.  That way things don't get as dried on...

I would suggest trying prefolds, they wash out easier, have no elastic, and you customize the fit to your baby.  They are easy to use with a snappi.  Even if you end up not liking putting them on...

I'm quite allergic to dust and have managed by using a vacuum with a HEPA air filter, and also running a standalone HEPA air filter in the room.  I have no hesitation babywearing to vacuum like that.

He should be fine in a rear-facing convertible seat.  He doesn't need to be sitting up by himself to use one.

My DS had eczema as a baby and it only went away when I cut out all wheat/gluten from my diet.  I would explore food sensitivities as a possible cause.
