Good afternoon folks! It has been quite some time since my last Diaper Wars post and I apologize for that. Since my last post my wife has pretty much taken the reigns on our cloth diaper adventure. She has taken up with a gang of cloth diaper moms for play dates and I believe there was a gangland battle at a playground with a gang of disposable diaper moms but I cannot disclose the result of this. Also I’m just joking but it would be funny to see right? Anyway, my wife is trying new types of cloth like FuzziBunz Elite, bumGenius Freetime, and GroVia AIO’s with their awesome prints. Although my personal preference has been with the new AIO’s, my wife and I still use prefolds for nighttime dryness.
So now that we’re somewhat caught up, my daughter Lola is a week or so away from being 10 months. She’s eating some solid foods and for all you parents out there, you know this makes changing diapers a bit different. You no longer have a baby who is pooing in a paste like form. Now you have a baby who is dropping solids. Um…yes, I realize I’m being gross and a little graphic but it’s poo. We have all dealt with it and we all drop it so let’s continue.
The diapers I have changed lately have been soiled with one medium sized nugget. Sounds pretty easy right? Well for those who don’t use cloth diapers I will tell you this is very easy but instead of throwing the diaper away it must be rinsed out in to the toilet. Okay, so like I said, this is easy. You take the diaper to the bathroom, unhook the sprayer and rinse out the diaper. It’s simple but if you’re new to this then here’s a tip. DON’T BEND DOWN TOWARD THE TOILET! I bent down and I thought I was far enough but when that nugget hit the toilet the poo water splashed up by my mouth. I gagged, did the girly hand wave and about vomited in my mouth but I held it together. I finished what I was doing and yes, I washed my face about 100 times.
It’s a learning process and I’m sure that even the most experienced diaper sprayer has dealt with something like this. The experience has been a fun one and I will continue to learn with every change. I am going to do my best to keep up with Diaper Wars and I have some new ideas as well. I would like to do some informative podcasts and even some live broadcasts where other cloth users and those who are curious about it, can watch, interact and discuss topics. I think it would be a fun way to bring new people to the cloth side and share stories. Oh yeah, and be educational. Let me know what you think about the idea, if you would be interested in participating in something like this and some ideas on what to discuss. Have a good one and may the cloth be with you!Post Views: 418
