Mandy: Hahaha that's awesome. I didn't have a NB stash for DD1 so I'm enjoying building it now. We don't have a ton of money but I have tons of diaper making supplies so I gotta make mine.



Lex: I'm probably going to keep NB fitteds. DD1 has a "newborn" baby doll that can wear the diapers for when the girls get bigger. :) She'll probably enjoy putting diapers on the baby doll while I put some on baby.



Lola: I can see me going crazy with the bee "theme"... I got a bee coming home outfit haha

Are CBI like tons better than microfiber? I was just going to go with microfiber because they worked well for ds when we clothed, and leaked straight through with just a bamboo, but now I'm seeing these CBI inserts..

Well CBI have microfiber on the inside. But I really like them, and they don't stink as much as other inserts. For night i like to put a bamboo insert under the CBI. No leaks.

I need a freakin diaper sprayer, or some heavy duty rubber gloves. Dunking and swishing isn't getting the poop off. I hate this part of CD'ing.

Is bamboo ok right against baby's skin? The fitteds I'm making have a snap in insert and I plan on using bamboo soakers but I wasn't sure if I should put maybe a flannel around the bamboo so it doesn't touch her skin or is it just microfiber that's bad straight against the skin?

Bamboo is fine.

Cool deal. I thought so but just wanted to make sure. It's terry so I just gotta make sure the "terry" part's in the inside so the soft part's against her skin.



I need to buy more though... Is there still a split on which is better, bamboo or hemp? The bamboo is hard to find but I wonder if I couldn't find some hemp terry easier

I was under the impression hemp is more absorbent. It always seems to be more expensive :?

Ok so i am confused at what happened here.

I have been using the same printed diapers for a few months now and theyhave been washed numerous times, well dd went for a nap, and when she got up and I changed her I pulled out the insert and it was pink, all stained too, it ownt come out. I am so confused how did the pink from the diaper leak on my new insert, had it 2 weeks its been prepped and used maybe 4 times now :( I am so sad

Anyone ever have this issue?

Lola: ohhh ok. I'll have to look around and see. I may not need bamboo terry... maybe a different type of bamboo would be easier to find. I dunno... I'm still no expert on fabrics.
