good ol fashioned top loader. it is an older washer we got for free from our in laws and it works great. Even when set to a small load the water level is pretty high.

anyone ever ordered off of theluvyourbaby.com??
I am getting two Happy Leak free OS kawaii diaper covers on friday and wondering how long shipping takes. All it says is Canada Post Small Packet USA, but doesn't say how many days that is. I am hoping it arrives before we run out of disposable diapers! That way I don't have to buy more. Kinda scary to just jump right into cloth diapering, but I think I can do it!

It should be, one of the diaper covers I am getting is Minky on the outside but still has the plasticy feel on the inside so it can just be wiped down and used again after a diaper change.

And then I am ordering snappis off of cottonbabies.com. I hope padfolding works for my son since I may have to do that if the covers arrive before the snappis!
OMG!! I am sooo excited to get my first ever fluff mail!!

Oops, i should have been more specific... if minky liners the inside of the nappy & is against bubbies skin is it stay dry.

Be careful with how you position the pad fold (or make sure it fits inside the cover really well)... I decided to throw a pad folded blanket into a cover the other day and I guess at some point it shifted. DD peed all over me. :oops: And of course she thought it was hilarious.

I think so, but I only use it on the outside of my diapers.

This is my favorite pattern/tutorial... it's step by step and makes almost any type of diaper you may want. https://docs.google.com/file/d/0BziyZSvAziLzN2FhMjcyYWItNzUzYi00ZTkxLWJmMDctNDYxZWQyMDdlZGUw/edit



I have a big list of other patterns if you don't care for that one though. I haven't tried them though so I'm not sure how they are.



As for sewing curves, you have to turn the fabric while it's sewing. It's best to go really slow around curves as you turn. With practice you can go faster but for now go slow. May want to practice on some junk fabric a few times first to get a feel for it. :)

yeah that is a concern of mine with the padfold, it seems like it doesn't cover too well. I am getting one velcro and one snap cover, I think I will use the velcro one if I need to padfold since that one seems to be more adjustable for a better fit.

It should be ok if you are using a diaper with a shorter rise. There was a lot of extra room in the back of the cover I used and it slipped back. If the diaper was shorter or the blanket was longer it wouldn't have happened (I think...)

Thank you so much! I'll check it out. And thanks for the tip on going slow and turning the fabric for curves. I'm a terrible sew-er and have no one to help. lol.

Looks like I'm not getting rid of my infant prefolds after all. DS will be 6 months old on may 19th. DH & I had sex april 23rd & I just POAS & got a positive. I'm freaking out. Majorly. Mental breakdown freaking out. I was supposed to start my period today & didn't feel it coming on. I don't want to even imagine our families reactions.

When u come into town ill show you :) it's not hard. You can do curves. I usually have to hold as close to the foot on both sides when I do curves to control it better.
