Back to the Grind.
We were doing really well with the cloth diapers until we switched from a liquid detergent to a powder detergent. When we made the switch we didn’t know exactly how much to use and Mason paid the price. We made the most common mistake and used too much detergent. No worries currently. We have seemed to have fixed the problem and have the diapers back on track along with little man’s keister. We consulted a few experts and put the internet to use. If you find yourself in a similar jam check out this link provided by the friendly folks at Baby Awareness.
Don’t take this post the wrong way. Cloth diapering is great – sometimes. Well, it’s actually a lot of extra work; especially when you have a problem. Plus, nothing throws a wrench into your day like wiping excess human waste off a diaper and into the toilet or worse having it sneak under your finger nails (awesome realization after a meal). All negatives aside I wouldn’t go back and not cloth diaper. Fact is we are still saving a bundle of cabbage, feel like we are doing the best thing for the environment, and have already matched all of Mason’s onsies to his diapers. Not to mention bought him a bunch of board shorts that only fit right while he is wearing his cloth diapers. Should you cloth diaper? Sure, but except to have a few jam ups and except it to be a little extra work.
