Any kind in particular you would suggest?



I doubt it will even out because or her stinkin torticollis. Sucks, but I'm trying to focus on her walking moreand wean off the scooting, ugh.

I've only used the Thirsties duo wraps because I had an Amazon gift card when I needed covers :P

HALP! How long is too long to not wash diapers? I wash MWF, never on the weekends because we usually have a lot going on. So, I'm supposed to be washing today (it's been 3 days), but I'm super sick and I can't even lift the pail :oops: My mother took B and she's in sposies so it's not like I'm gonna run out of diapers.
Should I wash them later? Or can they wait for tomorrow?
I rinse out everything before putting it in the pail, so there's no strong odor or anything.

They can wait. Lately I've been washing like once a week (Brighton has been in sposies). They come out perfectly fine. I do two cycles with no detergent instead of one at the beginning to make sure they are well rinsed before the detergent cycle though. I normally only do one when they are washed more frequently.

Asher is allergic to his cartoon diapers :cry:



He has a rash so bad it's become infected we've been fighting it for a few weeks and I've only had the cartoon ones about a month :( he's in Huggies pure and natural now :(

Now that I've been paying attention when we use alvas and BG his rash starts fading. It flares up again when I put on a cartoon :(

That's really bizarre. Alva's and BG pockets are suedecloth inside, like the cartoon dipes.

So, Aurora's ammonia rash never went away, so we stripped with RLR and put her in disposables for the time being. It's going away pretty quickly, but I have a question about that. With RLR, the package said to put the RLR on the diapers (clothes, whatever) and use detergent like normal. But I saw online to use RLR without detergent, and do multiple hot rinses afterwards. Now I'm thinking I pretty much wasted that RLR packet. What's the best way to strip with that?



Also, Mirabelle (If you guys didn't see, I had my baby, and she's a girl!) is in cloth now, and her diapers stink. Like mildew-y, not completely dry kind of smell, if you know what I mean. How do I fix that? I can not seem to wash these things right! :/

Oh no!! That sucks. D: What kind of fabric is on the inside? Is it something that's unique to the cartoon dipes? I hope he gets better.

Some people just use it the way it works best for them. Did it seem to work either way when you did that?



And congrats! As far as her diapers go, what kind are they? May be not getting dried enough? I had that problem a couple of times with my really thick prefolds. I just make sure to dry them longer.

We haven't actually put them back on her yet. I want that nasty rash completely gone. She had these nasty blisters that turned into CRATERS! Like raised and open. I hated it. :( my poor girl. I want it gone before I put her back in cloth.



And Mirabelle's trim pocket diaper is the one that really stinks. Her AIOs have been drying on our drying rack for TWO days now! I turned them inside out and have a fan blowing on them, like always, and for some reason this time they aren't drying as quickly as normal. Her prefolds dry very quickly.

Poor guy :( that is really just odd to me that the alvas aren't causing a rash and the cartoons are. They're like the same thing.
