Big Bottomed Gal!

I am super excited...I have made the switch over to cloth with Livvy. I was so disgusted with the amount of diapers being disposed of around here. It was a necessity at the time. I didn't have any newborn sized cloth diapers & she was such a peanut, but she now fits into the size small ones.

We used primarily cloth with Gav until he was about 2 years old. Oh, the questions I would get when it was viewed as part of my baby shower registry. I liked living on the edge. See I truly can be a nature girl. Riv...well I tried. We'll say that he has been his own person since he entered this world. I love him even more because of it. As much as I wanted to use the cloth, he had other plans & would freak out at the slightest bit of moisture in his pants.

Back to Livvy, my laid back, go with the flow girl. Cloth thus far does not seem to bother her & her diaper rash has disappeared. I do realize that I am the mother of 3 now & that cloth all the time may get to be a little much, so I am making a small investment in the gdiaper system. They have a disposable that is flushable/compostable/biodegradable. I made a trip to Whole Foods this weekend to get a trial pack. Verdict...I like them. They are a bit pricier than regular disposables, but the idea is that I will only use them when out & about or when I just get to overwhelmed & need a break, so in theory I should not be using them too often. I was also looking for an alternative that I would be able to send in to daycare. I understand that even though I am comfortable with cloth, others are not. I am hoping gdiaper will be the go between.

So, cheers to my big bottomed girl! She instantly graduated to her 0-3 month clothing.

Now, I have to check out these flannel wipes & wipe warmer my friend Julie is gushing about!

  1. Way to go Livvy! She must have grown last week! Thanks for the shout-out! Did you read my latest post about cloth wipes (must be at least the third I've written)? (shameless plug for my new blog!)
