Microfiber Still Stinks

I used BumGenius 3.0 diapers at the beginning.... But we would literally be gagging every time my baby boy peed in them- the ammonia smell was awful. I switched to hemp after that, and it worked better with less stink.

Recently I bought some more AIO diapers- Swaddlebees all-in-ones. They're really great diapers, the fit is awesome and they work great! But the absorbent part is microfiber... and I am starting to get whiffs of STINK.

The way to fix microfiber stink in inserts is to bleach them. But with an AIO, you shouldn't bleach them because the bleach breaks down elastic. So yeah... with this second round, I'm finally learning my lesson- MICROFIBER STINKS!!!

Just thought I'd pass on these words of whiz-dom... ;)

Embroidered Wool- What Could Be Cuter?

I recently ordered a couple (or a couple more than that) soakers from a really awesome mom. She makes these out of recycled wool, with wool interlock for the legs and waistband. You get to pick your wool, pick your size, and pick your embroidery- and they're an awesome price for a custom item like this!

I soooo didn't need another addiction... but at least the babies are going to look stylin', right? :)

Excess of Storage... Excess of Diapers!

I started with 3 little plastic bins on a little bookshelf. It held all my diapers, and the bins weren't even full. Well, that was over a year ago!!!

I've added storage as I've added diapers, and this is the result... A gigantic eyesore in my family room!!! But surprisingly, it's not even big enough to hold all the diapers when they're all clean!

I'm left wondering what comes next... I'm not ready to simplify my stash, I'm actually doing the opposite- making it more diverse. And I like to see all my diapers at a glance! So I guess the conclusion could only be this: Stay tuned for the thread called "The Wall of Diapers". ;)
