My scrawny peanut isn't in cloth yet either. She popped out before I finished them, then ended up in the NICU so that took up my sewing time. The good news is she's super tiny still so she won't outgrow them before they are done.

Ah ok. I was confused for a second when I googled. haha I googled prefold folds and found a few... Probably just going to do a simple fold, I think it was a newspaper fold. I dunno, I just folded until it fit better. That last poop exploded out of the side but thankfully the cover caught it.



Got it much better this time, it fit inside the cover much better too.

Aww thanks. :) Poor dear isn't feeling well today. Woke up with a crusty eye (squired BM on her haha) and a snotty nose... and has a bit of heat rash although I've kept her naked. And the spit up, oi... ended up wearing a whole nursing session then had to do it again 'cause she refuses a binkie. >_<



We're... eh, the same. Haven't had a day alone since the baby was born two weeks ago. Literally visitors every day (his and mine stayed here 6 days) so he hasn't had to do much... but now everyone is gone so we'll see how this goes. Between constant nursing and trying to get rest myself I haven't been able to do much. x.x

Hey, mamas! A fellow BG mama directed me to this page. I really need some help. I know absolutely nothing about cloth diapering. DD is 16 months old and I am considering switching her to cloth diapers. I don't know what I need or where to start. There are so many terms I don't understand and I don't even know where to get them. Help?

Thanks, ladies! The only thing I know absolutely for sure is that we do not have the biggest budget. Lol
