We're experiencing the "Ouch Factor" with some of our diapers/covers! Suddenly serged diapers are irritating my little guy's thighs when they never were before! But the fleece is the real culprit... I have these ADORABLE fleece covers I had made, but the serging inside the legs and the waist ATE his skin! He has these awful red scabby places on his belly and his leg chubs. *cry*

I guess as babies get more mobile, the friction from some of the rougher materials can cause irritation- both for the baby's skin AND for the mommy's emotions!

When you have finally gotten EVERY diaper you felt you had to have... When there are things you COULD still have, but not that you NEED to have.... You call it "stash nirvana". And I'm THERE!

I have a few more things coming in the mail to complete my nirvana, and then I'll share what got me there- it was a long road. But for now, I can breathe a huge breath, and let it out, "Ooooooooooaaaaaammmmmmmm......"

Is anyone....

Out there? Because I kinda gave up my blogging because I didn't want people using my blog for "help me fall asleep" nighttime reading.... LOL!

Nah, really I just don't know what to write about that's of interest! :D

Variety is the Spice of Diaper Happiness

I've been reading a lot lately from people who say they have gotten bored of their diapers and re-vamped their stash multiple times. This sounds somehow familiar to me... ;)

Lately, though, I haven't had that. I think it's because I've kept such a variety in my stash. Before I had all pockets, and then all AIOs... Now I have a few different types and different brands, and that seems to keep the boredom at bay.

I have my BG Organic (snapping) AIO diapers that I mostly use for going out of the house. But sometimes, I just feel lazy, and I throw one of those on him at home during the day. And I am struggling through prefolds at the moment, and I like that old-fashioned factor they provide. And then there are my fitteds- I have a variety of those that snap or use pins, and then wool, PUL, and fleece covers. I like staring at my stash for a second and deciding what I feel like using.

Keeping a variety seems to be the way not to get burned out on cloth-diapering. When you still have choices and can use whatever you're in the mood for at the time, it adds a little spice to the diapering pot- and who doesn't like a little spice? :)

FINALLY Trying Prefolds!

I've discovered that I really love prefolds as doublers for overnight! I use a tri-folded preemie size in my Very Baby Simply Nights or my Sustainablebabyish bamboo, and it works GREAT as a top layer next to the skin!

So I've finally ordered some prefolds to see if I can use them with pins- like my mom used to do with me! I've owned prefolds before, but didn't use them before he outgrew them. So I'll finally be able to say I've tried it all! ;)
