Thanks to this post about cloth diapers, people are always asking me if we started using cloth. I have resisted for 3 reasons:
1. Avery has been to small for the one-size cloth diapers we bought
2. The PKU diet has me shakin' in my boots and I haven't wanted to add any extra work to our daily routine.
3. Watching an older baby every day (and changing his diapers) is making me think twice about washing that crap (literally).
But we were running low on disposables yesterday so I decided to break out the cloth.
You know, just for fun.
Cutest baby I've ever seen!
Right now we only have Fuzzibunz petites (I don't think they even make petites anymore). They're supposed to be narrower through the waist, which is good for our skinny Avery, but they barely fit snugly on the tightest snaps. They come up so high on her and are so bulky that I couldn't bend her at the waist to sit her up.
The added bulk made her clothes fit a lot tighter too!
I could barely snap up her onesie.
And the added bulk gave her some serious junk in the trunk.
I didn't have to run to the store to buy diapers (at least not right away)
It held everything in
Her little butt stayed dry
She looked dang cute in them. Even with the junk in the trunk :)
They were easy to wash
They are sooo much more bulky than disposables
She couldn't sit up
Her clothes barely fit over them
So the jury's still out on this cloth diapering thing.
