It is wool cover washing day! We’re running a little overdue, but this morning I got up and got the wool soak going on my Disana covers. If anyone would like a tutorial, I might be able to write up such a post.
Okay. So this is kinda the post I’ve been meaning to write forever, but it is also just me getting thoughts to the page. We have cloth diapered both girls from the beginning minus the first day or so in sposies for the meconium. AppleBlossom started in Tiny gDiapers with Gerber double thick prefolds in them. The were folded in half and then again into thirds. It was a last minute run to the store fix right after she was born. We soon moved to Bummis Small Super Whisper Wrap Covers (at that time only available in prints with hook & loop). We used the Bummis Infant Prefolds with them. It was great, but big on her, but we got by. I also had some size 1 Kissaluvs Fitted diapers as well as one Newborn Woollybums that I loved! Later we moved on to FuzziBunz Small Pocket Diapers and then. . .

In January last year (2010) I wrote a post about newborn diapers (that I knew of at the time) and since then many more designs are available. But for starters here’s a refresher… and then at the bottom of the post – new excitement! So these are my thoughts from several months ago that I shared with Kim Graham-Nye, co-owner of gDiapers that now I get to share with you with a couple edits to make it current (September 11th, 2009): LOOK @ that itty bitty jaundiced AppleBlossom! Off the top of my head, I can tell you that the Tiny g’s have been my husband’s favorite diaper so far out of everything that we used. In his (I forgot how this diaper works) moments he sometimes even fastened it in front instead of back, and he thought it fit better that way. We are both absolutely in love with. . .
It’s no secret I love Bummis. I really really really love Bummis and want them to come out with covers with snaps in prints! But that’s another story… Bummis has partnered with a Scottish company (Tot Bots) to distribute some of their diapers including fitted diapers and a new AIO. Easy Fit Diaper A very different kind of pocket diaper! The innovative design of this diaper features a non messy stuff – easier than a pocket system. No fiddling around – a swift stuff to get the liner in is all you need… And – no more losing liners in the laundry! This super thirsty liner is actually attached to the diaper, making the Easy Fit a remarkable all-in-one diaper with many of the benefits of a two piece system – fast drying and easy to clean. Its innovative design provides a very versatile absorption – the attached liner can. . .
So really, this post is to share these pictures with my sister. But… they might be helpful to someone. I have made a picture image comparison of the differences in sizes of the prefolds we have in our stash, including the one brand new newborn size I just ordered to see if it would make a difference. We have some Organic Under the Nile Prefolds that we think are the equivalent to what some people call “Premium” Size, and I do not know what the thickness is or anything. I bought these brand new from a woman on CraigsList in Georgia who did not end up cloth diapering after all. They have been washes hundreds of times and still are firm and stiff and not soft at all. We will never use them in diapers (lucky I didn’t pay much) but they make fabulous on the go changing pads or. . .
Cloth diapers have already come so far in the last ten years that the ones that are out today you’d almost never assume something so cute could be an affordable adorable fluffy bum. One of the most amazing things that has come out in the last few years is the concept of an All in One (AIO) Diaper. One company that I love for their other diapers makes an AIO that I want to tell you about now. Kissaluvs. Why Marvels AIO? One Size, Fits 7-35 lbs. Quick Drying. No stuffing. Our absolute favorite diaper! Super easy to use – simply snap on and snap off! Grows with the baby, so you’ll never need to buy another diaper again. Patent Pending Self-cleaning, No-stuffing design. Toss the diaper into your washing machine and the soaker will agitate out to get a thorough cleaning and dry in a jiffy, but will stay. . .
