Cloth Diaper – Night 4

Diego woke up wet again. Nothing too major since Eric was the one who got him this morning. He did say the crib was not wet but his pants and onesie were. The am throwing the towel on these BG 2.0. I thought they were going to help but it just caused more headaches. Maybe I will investigate the Bummies Wraps instead.

Tonight Diego is sleeping with his overnight.

Cloth Diaper – Night 3

Diego woke up wet.  More than yesterday but a lot less than Wednesday.  In his crib there was a wet spot.  I think I am giving up on these diapers.  I wonder if there are better ones for him.  I don’t want to stuff the diaper any more since they just his size and don’t want to make him uncomfortable.  At least I tried. =(

I guess it is time to throw the white flag in the ring and return the diapers I bought.  Maybe they have something better.  If not, then back to the Overnights.

Cloth Diaper – Night 2

Diego woke up a little damp.  His lounge pants and onesie were the victims. The crib was dry so that was a good thing.  The diaper was soaked but I think it did its job.  After getting some advice yesterday, I wrapped the insert with another cloth diaper before putting it on.  I think that helped a lot.

Eric is still not convinced that cloth diapers are a good thing.  He just doesn’t want to mess with them at all.  My thing is that he hasn’t even changed his cloth diaper these past two days.  I am the one doing this.  I am going to continue doing this for another 5 days.  If it is more trouble than it is worth, then I am returning them.  But so far, the diapers aren’t the trouble, it is Eric who is.  So I wonder if I can return him and will I get my money back?  😉

Cloth Diaper – Night 1

It wasn’t so good.

Diego woke up at 12:30 am crying. The poor kid looked like someone dumped a bucket of water in his crib. But it is my fault though. He went to Little Gym yesterday from 6:30 to 7:15 pm. He drank 10 oz of his juice concoction plus whatever he had before we got home from work. I try really hard not to give him any liquids after 6 pm but this is the only exception for the week. I do think he would have gotten soaked even if he was wearing his Overnights so no negative thoughts towards the BGs just yet.

Tonight I will put the BGs on again but I will put extra padding in there. I hope it won’t be as bad as last night. So tonight will be the first day of normal use. Let’s keep our fingers crossed.

Cloth Diapering…

Diego has been soaking thru his diaper at night. Especially when he drinks a lot before going to bed. I try to avoid giving him any drinks after 6 pm but sometimes he asks for a drink so I give it to him since I don’t want to deny him this. I mean, if you are thirsty, you take a drink. Same for Diego.

Well, anyway, he already wears Huggies Overnights which are already think but they are not thick enough on some nights. On the nights they do work, awesome and yay all around. But on the nights they don’t work, then it is a wet kid and sometimes even a wet crib. So after checking around, I decided to go for cloth diapers.

These are not your old fashion cloth diapers. They are the bumGenius 2.0 One-Size Cloth Diaper. I got them today. I bought three different colors: White, Grasshopper (green) and Twilight (blue). They look great. I get to try one for 14 days and see if it works. I truly hope so. If it doesn’t, I get to return them and get my money back. They were not cheap. They were $17 each. I figure if they work, he will probably wear them for 6 months so it comes out even. We shall see. The test starts tomorrow.
