Back to Cloth Diapers

As you may remember we had a bad experience with cloth diapering with Noah and never tried it with Rebekah. It started out ok with Noah but he started to get rashes all the time and also we just got tired of carrying a bag around that smelled like pee. Also they leaked all the freaking time!

This time has been a different experience so far. We tried out a few different brands and asked around to a lot of friends what they liked best. We decided on using Flip diaper covers and bamboo inserts as well as bumgenius all in one diapers. We are careful to not use anything with microfiber that touches baby's skin. We are pretty sure that's what caused all the smell and rashes with Noah. Also we have decided we will only do cloth when we are at home and short trips. If we are going to be out of the house all day or on a bug trip like the zoo or something we will just do disposables to be convenient. Sean is happy with our choice in diaper brands as well. He likes the simplicity of the covers and how trim they are. We used a different brand before that was really bulky and made his butt looks huge. These ones we have now are nice and slim and look like a disposable. Rebekah doesn't really notice a difference. It will be so great to be back to saving money and not buying disposables every month and basically throwing money in the trash.
