    Dear all, Our baby is now 6 weeks old and we've been doing ec almost fulltime in the past 4 weeks. We tried to take it easy and not over-obsess. Than the micro-pees came in (2 to 3 times per day he would have a bulk peeing pattern of 5 pees within 10 minutes). Than cramps came in. And my hands...

    Hi, My husband and I have tried many diaper pails but they are all very bad at removing the odor. Specially when the kid is more than 1.5yrs old, the stink remains in the pail, and stinks up the room. We want to find out how many of you face the same problem. So, can you please take 2 mins to...

  4. Diapering
    So, I'm due with my first baby in December.. I'd really like to do cloth diapering, to save money in the long run AND to reduce landfill waste.. As well as just for the health and well being of my little one. I just have so many questions for those of you who have already gone the cloth...
  5. Diapering
    Is there such a thing as a pull on style (disposable) "diaper" that is absorbent enough for overnight, fits a 2t, and does not have those evil, evil, easy open sides? Wth is the point of those things anyway? In goodnites, the sides rip open like they're made of tissue paper anyway, as the...

    <p>Hi,</p> <p>My poor sweetpea (6 weeks tomorrow) has diaper rash. I thought I might escape a diaper rash-free 3 months with her...But he has come upon us. ANd I feel HORRIBLE about it. I changed her constantly. I didn't use any lotions on her bottom out of fear of sensitivity. However, when...
  7. Diapering
    My washing machine doesn't have a hot setting, only warm. What would be the best way to strip my diapers? I have a mix of mostly prefolds but some microfiber and hemp inserts. I've never really stripped them before--I've used bleach and sunned them but now that we started CDing overnight we are...
  8. Diapering
    Could my 8 month old DS add more factors to making it impossible for his diapers not to leak by morning? Oh yes, he also flops around a lot! I've read fitteds & wool, sounds great but A. They're both pretty pricey so I'm scared to just pick a brand randomly, anyone have a favorite? And B. what...
  9. Diapering
    <p>Hi mamas, I'm very new to cd-ing, and think I'm going to go with the folded flat n cover route (at least that's how lit looks in my head). I also live in so-cal, desert area and this past week we got temps as high at 106-108!!!!! This babe isn't due until September, so I've got some time...
  10. Diapering
    <p>I used Blueberry all-in-one diapers with DS2 & DD1 (though not as much because I worked then & used a lot of disposables for the nanny).  I still have them, and was hoping to use them again for DD2.  But the fleece seems a little worn down now and they have a funky smell. Don't know if the...
  11. Diapering
    <p>I've just started using a wipe solution on my cloth wipes -- 1 mason jar of water, about 1 tsp (small squirt) of Dr Bronner's liquid soap with lavendar, and a few drops of TTO.  I have a wet bag (made by planetwise) that is sized for wipes.  I know that EOs can be hard on plastic; should I...
  12. Diapering
    So in less then a month I'm driving out of state with my mother to visit her side if the family. We will be staying with my grandparents. I know we will be gone for at least two weeks.I'm going to keep using cloth. I curatinly have to wash twice a week.<br> My big question is do I take my...
  13. Diapering
    <p><span style="line-height:1.5em;">I'm looking to give my diaper stash to a family or charity in San Francisco. Anyone need some diapers or know of an organization that might take them? </span>They are Happy Heinies, BumGenius, and newborn size cotton Kissaluvs. They were used for two kids...
  14. Diapering
    <p>We used cloth diapers with our last baby for the first year or so, when DH (who is the SAH caretaker) got kind of burned out on some issues we had with leaking and switched to paper. We're going to try again with this baby, since we have the stuff, but since last baby we've gotten a new...
  15. Diapering
    <p>I am looking at the snap version of both. Does anyone have any experience or recommendations? Even if it is of other covers - I can't tell much from the reviews I've read, both seem to be pretty favorable. We will be using them with regular prefolds and snappis, probably. Not fitteds.</p>...
  16. Diapering
    <p>We've always just CD'd during the day but I bought a bunch of inexpensive pocket diapers for use at night (in the middle of the night I just don't have the coordination/patience to deal with adjusting covers over prefolds, which is what we use during the day. </p> <p> </p> <p>DD is 4 months...
  17. Diapering
    <p>We tried a pre fold service when DD was a newborn, and later some hybrids and AIOS. I hated all of them mostly for convenience reasons. Also, we never had the problems people seem to have with disposables, so we just went with it, feeling good that we were at least getting "eco" disposable...
  18. Diapering
    How far in advance is it rational to buy diapering supplies? The plan(not that I ever follow them) is to use sized fitteds and wool with the occasional aio for my mom and such, with part time+ ec. The problem is that about a month after the baby is due financially crap is going to hit the...
  19. Diapering
    <p>Hi everyone!<br> I have yet to CD a newborn, I started my DS when he was 6M, now we have his little brother on the way.<br> As of right now I have 20 OS pockets, 30 inserts. I was told it's miserable with NB because they leak. Have y'all also had trouble with OS not fitting your newborns and...
  20. Diapering
    <p>Has anyone else ever seen white-ish patches on PUL diaper covers?  It doesn't look like they are delaminating. There are a few large patches on the inside of the cover that have turned white. What's causing this?  Any ideas?</p>
