Enter in one of the most generous friends I have. I was seeking some advice concerning the constant leaking of my disposable diapers at night and thought that I should at least purchase a few cloth diapers for night time as I was already washing pajamas and sheets daily, I might as well save the disposables, since they weren't working anyway. I began asking questions with the intent of just purchasing one or two diapers. My friend not only gave me a full on in person class on cloth diapering and all my different options but also sent me home with a HUGE variety of diapers to try to see what worked for us. She had tried a number of styles and brands herself to find what worked for her little girl and she was so generous. Mandy, you are the best!!!
I have to admit total amazement. I really didn't realize how many options there were out there. Well, after trying a number of them, I have settled on what I believe is my favorite brand she shared, Bum Genius. (cute name, right?) What amazes me still is that the inside of the diaper is white, yes, white, and it stays that way! I mean that, you can spray off solid waste and wash and then it is still...white! I brought home my stash of diapers and got to work, funny thing is my son LOVES these things! He asks for the "fluffy" as he calls it (because we tease about him having a fluffy bum). I don't know why I didn't do this sooner. It isn't nearly as bad as I feared and definitely a HUGE improvement over the style of diapers my grandma would have had!
Here is a picture of the diaper inserts that I have been "stuffing" into the diaper. The outer layer (the purple) has a waterproof backing so that clothes stay dry (no more rubber pants!) The gray and white cloths get stuffed into the pocket and stay put.
