Cloth Diapers Diaper Liners Diaper Sprayers

Oh Poop

>Right now, poop on a cloth diaper ain’t no thang.  Breastfed baby poo is water soluble, so you can just throw em in the washer.  As baby gets older, you can just flip it in the potty & be on your way.

That in between stage is much more hazy.  I have memories of peanut butter consistency poo in rainbows of colors.  I’ll tell you, I am simply not interested in the ol dunk & swish method.

There are a couple brands of biodegradable/flushable/disposable diaper liners, some of which claim to be septic safe.  Reviews for one brand even claim they can be washed a few times if they are just wet.  In the end I’m not sure that solution is for me.

On the flip side, you can get a diaper sprayer that attches to your toilet & allows you to hose them in your toilet.  There are downsides to that too, and some people have come up with really clever solutions.  You can even find instructions for a homemade sprayer made with items you can find at your local home improvement store.

In the end, I think we will go with the bumgenius sprayer in our 1/2 bath, along with a large wet bag stored there as well.  They are expensive though, so I’m not sure if we will manage to get one before we start solids!

Cloth Diapers Diaper Cream Diaper Liners Diaper Rash

I’ve got the Magic Stick

>So diaper rash with disposables is a vicious cycle.  At least for us.  The sposies cause it but we use them in order to slather diaper cream on him to clear it up.  I’m well aware that most diaper creams cause repelling and staining and generally ruin cloth diapers.

I’ll tell you from experience that tissues do not work as an effective cloth diaper liner and that diaper creams do in fact stain cloth.

I tried cutting up an old flannel receiving blanket to use as liners and cloth wipes when using diaper cream (also so I easily knew which items to wash separately) but even that wasn’t 100% effective.

I also read that the zinc in these creams was drying & probably not the best thing for me to be using.

What I needed was a cloth safe diaper cream.  While I got the low down I found several contenders.  A few had similarly chuckle inducing names, reminiscent of butt baste.  These were rump rub and magic stick.  Please tell me I’m not the only one who thought more lil kim than lil bums.

I decided on the breathable barrier Grandma El’s and added it to the trusty wish list.  I’m writing out of order, so if you’ve read in order, you already know that I ordered it.

I did receive it, and while I will write my full review later, it rocks.

Wanna Trade?

>Something common is people trading.

People can trade their good condition diapers for a larger size, or another brand that worked better.  Sometimes people trade new items they bought that didn’t work out for them.

Sometimes it actually reminds me more of bartering.  For example, someone who makes diaper detergent might send some to a mom who makes stuffed animals, in exchange for a handmade gift for her child.

Unfortunately I can’t think of anything to offer up right now, but it sounds like the perfect solution for me.  I need so many things like pail liners, wet bags etc.  I’m not picky about what they are or what they look like as long as they work for me.

I’m trying to only spend our money on the most important things that just can’t wait, and of course, that is diapers right now!

Like anything though, trade at your own risk & make sure to check out the person’s reputation and trading history, ask detailed questions and for detailed photos of the items and make sure all parties understand all terms of the trade!
