I'm gonna try to sew some of my prefolds into fitteds. Any advice? I have been looking online for instructions and I like this one so far:

So I haven't felt my best for the past few days so I've only been part time co-sleeping with DS so that he doesn't get sick. Well I didn't think about how much apple juice I was ingesting(48oz for 2 days straight)so of course it affected my stomach & DS's. I just changed my first prefold poopie & I almost threw up. He is now in a JCTrade pocket!

I've got a few of them. They are VERY absorbent! I use them as doublers for overnight, but since they absorb kinda slow I make sure they go on bottom.



I dunno what brand mine are or even where I ordered them from but they are terrible quality as far as the craftsmanship - the seams all started coming out and fraying all over when I prepped them :?. They still work great, but they look pretty rough. If you can get them from a WAHM I say go for it!

Hey ladies! Dunno if you remember me but it's Madison, my screenname used to be L(peace sign)J :)



I have a question about cloth wipes!
Has anyone used the Osocozy ones? I found 30 wipes for $15 on ebay a few days ago and ordered them.



What can I use for a solution? Would just spraying water on them suffice?

Oh hey! I had no idea this was you. I was your picture on the babywearing support group on facebook today (not a stalker LOL) and I was wondering where you went.



I've never used those wipes. But for a solution, water will work. I use water with a little coconut oil and witch hazel. I used to use TTO but that shit burns when you get it on a cut and it was irritating LO when she had a rash.

:D I kinda disappeared because I've finally figured out CDing for us and I never really buy anything or keep up with anything diaper related any more lol. But I'm tired of having to throw wipes into a separate place so I figured might as well finally try cloth ones :)



Do you think I could use peppermint oil in the water? I love the way it smells :P

I have no clue. I've never used it. Ask MOB, though. She said she puts that shit on errythang.

Im so sad. One of my Disana covers got tossed in the wash with all the other diaper stuff this evening. My guess its either the husband or one of the kids tossed it in the pail not realizing what they were doing. They all know better :(

It did shrink a bit. I'll probably just pack it away for the future maybe baby.
