warm and fuzzy

Wednesday, December 2, 2009

we were going to go to the grocery store and run errands, but the rainy weather turned out to be too much of a deterrent. instead, we ordered pizza and hung out in our pajamas. afterward, i washed all of the fabric i bought and started some more note cards/envelopes on the gocco. finally, i did some browser-style window shopping. i think i’m going to enjoy cloth diapering, despite all of the obvious challenges (poo, laundry, traveling, etc.). they’re so cute!

    Zeke has graduated to nasty solid-fed poo, which is NOT as easy for me as pure breastfed poo. But we’re dealing. We are getting ready to make our own diaper sprayer from this tutorial http://gidgetgoeshome.com/2008/08/25/diy-tutorial-make-your-own-diaper-sprayer/ … it’s a lot cheaper than buying a diaper sprayer.

    When we travel for just a weekend or something we use disposables, but if we’re gonna be somewhere long enough to do laundry, we use cloth. And we use disposables at night because at this point, he still leaks through any cloth we have at night, even when we change his diaper in the middle of the night. Disposables hold up typically at night but ONLY if we do a middle of the night change. He’s a super soaker.

      That’s a pretty nice tutorial; I’ll have to bookmark it for later. The brand-name sprayers are $40 and up, so making your own for $20 seems totally worthwhile. 😀

      Have you snooped around all the various cloth diaper forums out there for possible night-time solutions? I know every baby’s pee potential is totally different, but it seems like wool or interlock are good choices as covers at night, though if you’re using an AIO, then you wouldn’t be covering it.

        Hemp inserts are supposed to be super absorbent, but they also take a long time to dry. At $16 per insert they don’t seem worth it to me… I just can’t get myself to pay that much for inserts right now. Although he’s even leaked out of his disposables the past two nights after just 5 hours, so I really don’t know what to do. I’m washing sheets every other day right now!

        Wow. I didn’t realize inserts were so expensive, but I know that hemp fabric isn’t cheap. I wonder if you could find them cheaper used. Still, leaking out of disposables isn’t fun either. Poor super pee-er! 😦
