I always love to read what people's favorite CD's are and why.
I use and love Bumgenius 3.0's. They are easy for me to wash and seem to fit perfectly. I also like good old fashioned prefolds with a Thirsties or Prorap Cover. I have used Snappy's and Thisties AIO and like them too.
For laundering we love Charlies soap...but in a pinch I have found that Arm and Hammer Washing Soda(not the detergent, this stuff is different and I can only find it in North Charlotte at Harris Teeter) mixed with a few squirts of Simple Green will do nicely. For stubborn stains/odors, vinegar and water seem to do great.
This is the first time I'm using cloth. It's been going pretty well the past 4 months. I usually use a microfiber doubler in a prefold at night and I also use wool covers/shorties at night. They may feel damp in the morning, but they don't leak like non-wool covers! We did have one patch of heavy nights when he was nursing all night long and I was using a Bummis cover _and_ a wool cover! LOL
Oddly enough, we had one morning when my son woke up dry?! That was weird.
We love the Bum Genius one size, they seem to hold the most. I like the velcro better than the snaps. I have an AIO but it leaks every time she pees and takes forever to dry. Am I doing something wrong?
I started making my own pocket diapers about 5 years ago, and I like them best. Not that I'm biased or anything! ;) I've started making them with bamboo velour insides instead of fleece or suede, and I like it much better. We use prefolds for inserts.
Other than that, we have a few bum genius, and some random covers. :)
With nighttime, we use extra doublers, and sometimes we put pull up covers (like rubber pants style) on top of a pocket diaper. That seems to stop most leaks.
I've dealt with a few different illnesses. Maybe you can call me tomorrow and let me know what's going on. Or maybe send your number. Pat and I are going to a conference but will have some time on the drive there and later in…"
Hope you are doing well, its been a while since I've come to the group MNOs but hope to attend soon and see folks again. This is kind of a random favor/question, but I seem to have a sick chicken and wondered if you had any expertise…"
"Thanks, lots of great ideas we can try. (I am a new member on the yahoo group as of last week.) We also read some information elsewhere about treating with arnica, do you have any experience with that? DH used arnica pellets on Sunday for muscle…"
"We had two recent discussions about poison ivy relief on the yahoogroup with many options to consider. Plantain, witch hazel and Epsom salt baths seem to offer significant relief.
Are you already a member there?…"
