What is the first thing that comes to mind?
folding huge long sheets? clothespins? messy poo? line drying?
Well mine was: saving money… we rather spend or save on other things a month. (personal preference)
After a lot of research while pregnant I went with Softbums. I loved the simplicity, design, sleekness, and process of these guys.
Here is how we do it:
we have two shelfs above his changing table and one of them holds all the pods and one holds the cloth diaper shells.
When he makes a mess in it, you just take off the pod like so and throw it in the wetliner bag.
Then you throw the pods, shells, and wetliner bag into the washer and do a wash with cold with 1/4 of detergent and then rinse with hot with no detergent.
Then I line dry them because it makes the poop stains disappear!
really… the only thing I dont like about them is how long it takes for the pods to dry (incase I should have done laundry earlier, but I have disposable back ups just incase!) and how big they make Haddon’s bum look.
The system was a little pricey to start up but will save us a lot in the long run and thanks to family and friends we really didnt spend much on the system. the kind we got are one size fits all and go from 5 lbs to the time they are potty trained. thanks guys.
Do you cloth diaper? Why or why not?
What problems have you run into with them? (I’ve only been doing it for a few weeks)
