Quoting LoveMyBubbaBoy:" Nope because I scrape it off the fleece! :) That's why I love it and it's SOO worth it. I cut it up ... [snip!] ... I cut it up in strips that are like 5 or 6 inches by however long the rise is and I just have to get the poop off the fleece!"

Yes! Only the cheap way. lol. They sell really nice liners, I just cut my own. lol. And fleece doesn't fray or anything so it doesn't need to be sewn. Just make sure it's micro fleece. It also keeps baby's skin dry too! So double awesome!

Yep! And, in the very beginning, had it not been for the fact I was pregnant, I wouldn't have been ale to do any more than what you are. I started off with spending $25 a week on diapers to prepare for my son. This time I only need newborn diapers, so every other week I spend $50.

I wonder how much they sell it for at wal mart, i will have to look into it! :)
I know michaels or other craft stores might be pricier, how many yards did you use? Just one? he only poops about once a day on average, and the pee diapers are super easy to handle since I will need to wash nightly with the amount I have currently.

That is awesome your experience is going so well! Most people wouldn't be so determined as you are.

1 yard is more than enough! And I got mine at Joann's with a 40% off coupon. I haven't checked Walmart though. :) I just always stick them in because it keeps his skin so nice and dry. I wash every other day and have more than enough to do that.

yeah being broke really motivates a person!! lol When I first learned about cloth I was like "hahahah, NO WAY!!" and now here I am using the most old fashioned way! I think looking into it for so long and learning soo much about it prior to starting really helped. Plus our car payment and electric payment are both behind, knowing I can buy plenty of reusable diapers for the same amount of money I would spend on one one box of disposables really got me. I grew up poor-ish, never had brand names or even new clothes often, so being thrifty has stuck with me since childhood. Now I am figuring out how to switch to cloth wipes. Gotta save up some money first.

Haha I hear that. End of July, in LA, I probably could. I don't think the hospital would like it though haha.



I'm looking to do a bumble bee theme for this chiclette. I have some cute bee fabric I could make her some. I just need to find yellow/black stripped socks/babylegs... and I want to make the girls a matching set of shirts, DD2's will say "New bee" and DD1's will say "Old Bee" with bumble bees on it... is that lame? haha (we're gamers, it's a gamer saying)
