Diaper Update

Bummis is the Brand we chose to go with mainly because of the price and the fact that they sale a cloth diaper and cover that can fit a child up to 45 pounds.

We do not use any pins, I would be dangerous with pins and babies at the same time.

I began a wish list that I may try to fullfill watching for sales or coupon deals. First up I want to try an all-in-one sometime. I didn't start with them because I didn't want to spend the money on a diaper that the boys would outgrow too quickly.

I also ordered the disposable liners. These little guys are similar to a baby wipe. In the likely event the child poops then you take the soiled liner and flush it, leaving only the wet diaper to be washed.

Next on my wish list is a cloth swim diaper. This would be wonderful to use for our hot tub therapy. If you have ever tried finding swim diapers between Sept. and June you know how nice it would be to have a washable one.

Last on my list is a Snappi. I don't really need it but is looks kind of fun. Maybe it will be one of Eli's stocking stuffers.

So far we have done the cloth at home and night time with Eli. Two nights so far and no leaks. I love waking up in the morning and not having to put Eli in the bath first thing.

Gavin hates the cloth diapers and he has chosen to wear his underwear instead. This is a great benefit I didn't expect. Now he has a great incentive to try to remember to go in the potty.

It is a learning process for me. Cloth diapering is a whole world of its own. I have just dabbled a little but it is kind of fun.


  1. Cool! Glad to hear its going well!

  2. Yay, glad it's working out so far. When I started reading, I was going to suggest the Snappi. I got a couple of them when T came along and used them exclusively - loved them instead of pins. The Bummis are nice diapers - they're what I used the most. I also really liked the Wonderoos. I liked the idea of the all-in-ones, but didn't care for them in use.
    Can't remember what brand of cloth swim diapers we used, but I rarely used disposable swim diapers. Definitely look for these before winter hits. I think Target may even carry some - they used to anyway.

  3. So glad, Stacy! Yay for dry mornings, that's what we're appreciating the most other than the overall coolness of cloth diapers. :)
