How's it going?

Great here. We are currently using exclusively pockets. I like our Blueberry deluxe, BG 4.0., SunBaby size 2, and sized Fuzzibunz. I'm about to sell those because he's 18 lbs and they barely fit. I'm expecting some custom Alva's from a coop this month. Our wash routine is great now that we're using Tide and I wash every third day.

Much much better then I thought. We use alot of snap in diapers (like Grovia and G Diapers) and I love them, I use the regular pads and then use the shells one more time for prefolds. We have a few all in ones too and I like them but I found I don't like fuzzi buns for her. We love G diapers, we keep the disposable inserts in the diaper bag and a wet bag for the hemp liner when we are out. I will be using disposables next week, mainly cause I don't want to worry about cloth while we are in Cleveland. I'm not even taking diapers with me (other then half a dozen for the airport) but I'll buy them when I get there (there is a Target right down the street from the hotel). Thursday can't come soon enough (and I'm totally off my diapering subject now lol).

It's going well. We initially used just Rumparooz, but I've gotten some other ones recently, which I haven't tried. I got Oh Katy, Incredibum, Happy Heiney, bum genius regular, Bum Genius Freetime, swaddlebees simplex and baby kicks 3G.

I am most intrigued by the design of the swaddlebees and the bumgenius Freetime.

We do flip diapers and this is our 2nd in them, so no real surprises. Now that my son is PT, we only have 1 in diapers and her poops don't have to be rinsed off, so that's much more fun (although right now we are still getting poop out of underwear, but hopefully soon...)

I have considered the mama cloth, but I think family cloth would be too much forus.

Family cloth would probably just be me and Kaley. Jordan would never do it. I'd do diva cup over mama cloth probably.

Mama cloth is cloth instead of pads and family cloth is to replace toilet paper.

TMI ALERT: I made some family cloth for me by cutting up an old t-shirt. So far, it's great! I'm only using it for liquids though, kwim?

I also bought mama cloth from gem and I'm actually looking forward to af this month!

We cloth diaper here Mostly OS diapers such as BG AIO, BG 3.0 & 4.0, BG Organics/Elementals, Rumparooz, Flips w/ Organic inserts, FuzziBunz (have these sized as well). Also have prefolds and WAHM fitteds with covers, and some sized diapers like TKCuddlers.

I myself have been using Mama Cloth for about 2yrs now. I used to use it with a Diva Cup but now that I barely have a cycle because of meds, I stick with just cloth unless I want to swim or will be out all day for like the zoo, etc.

I tried "family cloth" for myself for a couple of months using simple BG wipes and cut-up receiving blankets. I loved it until I realized I was having a build-up problem down yonder because of the cloth somehow?! It was causing yeast infection and some UTI symptoms without actually having either. I don't know why. I stripped the wipes but it still happened. Thinking its because I use dryer sheets in my dryer. Anyway, I had to stop.

Dryer sheets cause a film build up. I am allergic to fabric softener, so we got these dryer balls from Bed Bath and Beyond. I like them.

It is going well here. We have mostly softbums and prefolds. I really like the softbums with the bamboo insert. They have a nice trim fit. I do have a couple best bottoms which I like as well. They are trim too. I use the prefolds at home and the others when we're going out.

I ordered one bububebe fitted and I love, love, love it! I can't wait until I have some more cash to buy a couple more. It really is an awesome dipe! I also have one bumgenius but I don't like it only because I don't want to have to stuff diapers. I prefer the softbums or best bottoms instead.
