Well, it’s the end of an era, my friends. I did mention before that I was going to keep up with our night cloth diapering, but I just can’t. They aren’t getting clean enough, I wash them every 3 days and they still stink after I wash. They’re just saturated, sitting too long waiting to get cleaned and they aren’t “agitated” enough in the washing machine, with only 3 diapers, to get clean enough. I’ve tried to tweak my washing routine, but I just don’t think it’ll be really “worth” it to keep using those 3 diapers. Nap time is inconsistent, we don’t always use a diaper and sometimes he wakes up dry. But even washing 5 diapers every 3 days doesn’t really make it worth it to me. So…for the first time since Braden was 1 month old, we’re going back to the disposable route – gasp! He’s just not ready to be trained through sleep yet, especially nighttime sleep, but I’m hoping that with some fluid restriction training and maturity he’ll be ready by the time he’s 3. It’ll be really nice for me to not have to wash any cloth diapers at all for about the next 5 months…I deserve a break!
My disposable using friends, I turn to you for advice. We are going to use Huggies Overnights for him. I don’t support Pampers, and this is why. What’s a good price to be paying? When and where do the sales come? I’m still not impressed to be paying 20-some-odd-dollars on diapers I just throw away, but I can’t have my cake and eat it too!
A side note to my American friends is that we can’t order cheap diapers from sites like diapers.com or amazon.com….you lucky people!
