Trying!

Today has been a bit of a challenge, and it's not even 3:00 yet. Both H1 and I have had colds for the past few days, and it seems that H3 may be coming down with it too. She's been out of sorts for a couple days now, not as interested in eating, and sleeping more than usual. Also, lots more crying than normal. My happy little baby has disappeared for the last couple days. Today was my first day going all out with cloth diapers. I had been waiting for the rest of them to arrive in the mail before changing over from disposable. I'm still planning to use disposable on trips and overnights (since one disposable will hold her all 10-11 hours of sleep, and I can't seem to get the cloth to work more than 2 hours). I'm still going to have to learn about these things. It hasn't gone so well today, but better than the one that I tried yesterday evening that soaked through the diaper, the vinyl pants, her clothes and her playmat! Today I haven't had that issue again, but we've gone through twice as many cloth as I would normally with disposable. Hurray for washing machines! One other thing I need to find out is if the Snappie I'm using works better than diaper pins or not. It was recommended to me, but I've had some issues trying to get it attached to the diaper. We'll have to see!

Hi There! Sorry you and baby aren't feeling well! I use cloth too! I don't know what kind of cloth diapers you are using, but my baby can go all night in his without leaking. Even when he was nursing every two hours, I could keep him in them all night. Please send me an email and tell me what you are using so I can help you trouble shoot!! I love cloth diapers! I'm so proud of you for using them!
Good Job!

I replied to the message thread on facebook. Any suggestions will be fabulous. I want to be able to use them with her!
