i love cloth diapers.
i swoon over cloth diapers.
i visit store after online store looking at
all. the. cute. diapers.
and we recently received some new diapers and covers from go baby go, a local natural-parenting company that sells all sorts of goodies. they are cute cute cute and by the end of the day river had worn three covers, just because they are freaking adorable and i wanted to see all of them on his little butt. :) no clothes for you today, son. you will just run around naked in a totally cute diaper. no wonder disposable diaper companies see cloth diapers as a competitor! [among many other reasons ;D]
we have new bummis and some thirsties covers. while i like the bummis but don't love them, i do love the prints they come in, and now have all three that caught my eye when i first found them. as for the thirsties duo wraps, i all-around love them! and they have a few new, modern prints for both girls and boys.i've been wanting to try a different kind of prefold, besides the green mountain diaper cloth-eez prefolds i have [they are awesome]. we have some second-hand diapers but they are not good quality prefolds at all; i have to make sure i never put them on him at night time or even when we are out and about. so i definitely needed more than just one dozen good diapers. our new diapers from go baby go are chinese prefolds, and i've been wanting to try them out for a while because i've heard such great things. the first thing i noticed about the prefolds was how incredibly soft they were! even after the first use and they were washed and i put them out on the line to dry - they are still so soft. they are not as wide as softeez prefolds, which makes them less bulky, and the fabric has a bit more pull, so they are easier to pin on nice and snug.
and last but not least, we got ourselves a gro via waterproof, machine-washable wet bag.
i've been wanting one for a long time. i'll keep it in the diaper tub and when it's time to wash the dipes, just haul the bag [instead of the whole tub] to the laundromat, and into the wash it goes with the diapers. i think this is going to make our wash routine so much easier. next on my list: a diaper sprayer. then, i will feel like our collection of cloth diapering essentials is complete!
river in his bummis super bright wrap.
seriously, who knew diapers could be so much fun?
