Cloth Diapers at 12 Months

You know you're a mom when... you buy a new cloth diaper you've been coveting for months - with your Christmas money.

I honestly couldn't come up with anything better to spend it on.  I swear.  If that isn't enough to defend myself, here's a picture of it -

adorable, no?

Adelle - 12 Months 

# of Children: 1

Gender: female

Size: 18 lbs, 27 in

Average # of Diapers a day: 9

Laundry Schedule: Every three days.

 Routine: 2 pre-folds used during awake times, all-in-ones during naps, all-in-ones with extra insert at night

Diaper Size: One size diapers - middle settings, Thirsties covers - size 2, second smallest setting, Disposables - size  3

Leaking?: Not any more, thankfully.  We bought three hemp inserts to use for the overnight leaking issues we were having last month, and they have solved the problem (success!).

How's the Poo?: Good.  Nothing new to report this month.

Night Time: Buying the hemp inserts was the key to keeping Dellie from leaking.  We have had zero issues since we started using them.

Did you Use Disposables?: For a day, I think.  I don't remember why - I think I just got lazy.

Any Changes: We bought some more diapers - 3 hemp inserts, another pre-fold cover, and an all-in-one. Kiddo also got a little bit chunkier around the waist - we are snapping the Thirsties covers one size out from last month.  To be honest, she's really inbetween the two snap sizes.  That would be one downside to snaps versus velcro.

Any Issues: None!

Favorite Brand: Bummi's TotsBots still wins.  It's the brand of the new diaper I got with my Christmas money.  I have been completely suckered in now because [1] their new fairytale patterns are adorable, and [2] the diaper insides are made of minky.  What I would give to have my behind swaddled in minky all day... [I promise, this is not sponsored, I am always this obnoxious when I like something.]

Still Like Cloth?: Yes, indeed.
