Quoting LoveMyBubbaBoy:" So cute! I have some mama cloth coming to try but it's with thick fleece instead of pul. I've heard it works well, I guess we'll see. I only got liners to try with all of the accidents I have. lol."


Yeah a WAHM i get diapers off uses fleece & has never had a leak with it :)



I dont get AF anymore because the implanon stopped it, but i get random spotting a few days each month & never know when to expect it so use long panty liners everyday & they irritate me.



These only have 1 layer of bamboo in them & are so trim/soft! I got the top 2 to trial and loved them, so she made me a whole stash.

Quoting Ecstasy:" Are they able to be sent internationally? Im in Australia & would love to try some :)"

I have no qualms against shipping internationally but I can't promise the shipping won't be crazy x-x I can get a quote for you though. :)



Brink: Cool deal. ^_^ I just got a new soap mold too, it's silicone... can't wait to use it. The last one was thin plastic and definitely saw it's better days. It was a b***h to pop those soaps out toward the end 'cause the mold was all distorted (and I hated the thought of using a chemical mold release)! haha

I've used fleece for people and haven't gotten complaints either. I couldn't try it myself either though, I had the mirena and it kept me from bleeding like at all. I got it out to try for another baby but I wanted to try a cup... ordered it, then I got pregnant. haha

Where do I find out what scents and stuff you have? I totally want one, but like pink and swirly looking. I'm picky. LOL

Ok so I cd my youngest daughter but it was the old school kinds. I bought some charlie banana ones (they look like a diaper and have anaps and a pocket thing.



How does this work? I have disposable inserts but I have to change the whole diaper every time right. What do I do after I change the diaper? Immediately wash or what?



Help I feel so lost. I only have three and I'm poaitive I need more to make it through a day....

Those of you that have made diapers.



Do you know of any good tutorials for fitteds? Patterns and stuff? I've got a ton of old prefolds and t-shirts that need to be used. Also. How the hell do you sew a curve? Like...when the wings curve, how do you do that? The foot thingie clamps down and only lets me sew in a straight line. Do you release the foot or an I doing something wrong? *sewing newbie*

GRRRR Why is shipping so expensive!!!??
I decided to look online and buy two diaper covers just because I am seriously very eager to start CD with my son. And I found the cheapest ones at kawaii diaper, two for just under $10, but then of course they get you with the shipping and the total comes out to like $18!! Ugh so annoying!!
Everywhere else is like $10+ for one cover plus shipping. If I had cash I would look on CL, but I only have my debit and don't wanna take $20 out just to get a couple of covers.

You remove the pocket insert, which BTW buying microfiber, hemp, or bamboo washable inserts will be cheaper than the disposable kind. Yes you have to wash the entire diaper. Within 2-3 days max. For pocket diapers I would say you need at least 20 total and have maybe 12 in rotation and you can wash every other day to every two days, depending how much your baby pees. .

:( If you check diaper swappers there might be something and you can just use paypal. Or else cottonbabies has econobum one size for like 8.95 and they have free shipping. :)

OMG! I can't believe I didn;t think of this before. ok so my son;s box of sposies is almost out, maybe 3 days worth left and what will we do?? Just go to the store and drop $25 on a new box! BUT I can just tell my husband let me use that $25 for some diaper stuff and we won't have to buy anymore disposables!! ha!!!!
So let me go see how many flats, covers, and snappis I can get for $25.
