I have a couple things I wonder about. (yes, I'm happy in post-partum loopy-don't-think-about-much-brain)<br><br>
Absorption: So much talk about absorption, and yet...Other than when C is sleeping, we change pretty fast. He hates being wet, so even when he's got a cover on (he's coverless a lot) he cries and we change his diaper. So for the most part, we just need a diaper to keep him from peeing over his shoulder onto the furniture. (yes, he's talented <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/wink1.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="wink1"> ) Nighttime is our only real absorption issue. So in spite the fact he can pee a lot when he does, its not a big deal other than night when I'm trying to help him sleep longer and longer stretches.<br><br>
Tight vs. loose: How tight do you like the diapers on your babes? I personally like loose clothing, so I try to find a happy medium for C. Tight enough to hold everything in and otherwise loose enough for my perception of his comfort.<br><br>
I also find myself leaning towards diapers that are more of a low-rise for him. Some diapers seem to irritate his belly button a little (its sort of a 1/2 innie and 1/2 outie; strange but true). I don't like things that rise up on my belly, and I'm transferring that preference into my diapering.<br><br>
How about y'all? Are you diapering the way you like to wear your clothes? Do you transfer your preferences? ETc....<br><br>
OK, I'm gonna get rambling along to check the drier and my precious fuzzies.

I don't like diapers so tight that they leave marks, but at the same time they need to contain the poop. I let him go coverless at home because I think it's more comfortable and it really helps with rash. I also use Kisslauvs on him because they ride below his belly which is where everything else ends up anyway. I hadn't thought about it in terms of comfort, but now that I do, I guess that's the real bottom line in diapering.
