1. We waited until my LO was five weeks old until we started cloth diapers. I so wish we started from newborn, those little diapers are sooo cute. More importantly with the disposables I could smell the chemicals every time she peed, I remember my mom not believing me that I could smell it. Sure enough every time I could tell you when her diaper was wet just from the smell. It scares me that I would put that against my baby’s skin.

  2. Baby wash cloths are great for baby wipes, since they’ve got a smooth side and a rougher side. They’re nice and thin. Just make sure to get ones that are mostly cotton, because the ones that are polyester don’t grab ANYTHING! I got a 24 pack for $5 and now I just use them as a barrier for when I have to use Triple Paste or something like that. Toss ’em in the wash with regular laundry and we’re good. 🙂

  3. I loved hearing about how you transitioned to full time CDing. We were CDing full time until we started having diaper leaks at night. After trying a lot of different stuffing, and hindering our little guy’s nighttime mobility, we switched to disposables for night use. I’m there with your husband on the smell – I can not stand the smell of a wet disposable diaper – BLECH! I’m thinking of trying our pockets for overnights again, now that our little guy has filled-out, but I am apprehensive because he will even leak through a disposable some nights…

  4. First off I would like to say fantastic blog! I had a quick question that I’d like to ask if you don’t mind.
    I was curious to find out how you center yourself and clear your head before writing.
    I have had difficulty clearing my thoughts in getting my ideas out.

    I truly do take pleasure in writing however it just seems like
    the first 10 to 15 minutes are lost simply just trying to figure out how to
    begin. Any recommendations or tips? Thanks!
