Does your hospital allow cloth diapers? Let's see your hospital cloth pics!
Sydney was hospitalized with rotavirus last year. The 1st hospital had a policy against cloth and used disposables - though the doctor mentioned how amazing it was that she'd had diarrhea for 2 days and her bum was still rash-free and I credited it to using cloth and Baby Bottom Better At first I just wanted her to get treated so I didn't argue but after the 1st hospital's ER nurses put Huggies on her she rashed up within 3 poops! So as soon as they transferred us to the 2nd hospital I went back to the cloth. Sydda went ahead of me in an ambulance and they put her in disposables when she got there. I followed in my own vehicle after going by my house for our things, and when I showed up with my bag of cloth one of the nurses left the room and came back with the head nurse who told me to use their diapers because of a biohazard policy ! But when they couldn't get a stool sample from her and I suggested to the doctor that if I put a cloth diaper on her they could get the stool from that he said to try it so that's what we did, they got their sample and I won the cloth argument ! I did put one of their Pampers on her here and there while one of her covers was drying out - we didn't have enough with us - but for the most part she was in her soft fluff and that saved her tush from rashing badly from her constant runny bum.

1st Day. Still my giggly girl even sick. I left her coverless in a prefold as much as possible.

Aww, Syd looks so pitiful! Q got rotavirus last winter and was hospitalized. Sydney's little sickly looks remind me of him last year. We didn't use cloth then, so I don't have any pics to share of that.
Q had a set of tubes (2nd set, actually) put in and his adenoid removed in July. Here are a few pics of him before the surgery.
I just have to say...I know these are old posts but this is breaking my heart! I could not stand to see my babies in the hospital! I have been so lucky so far (knock on wood) Boy, do they look like such troopers! When I was 8 I was in the hospital for a long time and I was always happy and smiling, no fear, no real understanding of what was going on I guess...I remember just being thrilled that they had Nintendo in the rooms for the kids that had to stay a long time, I just played Nintendo everyday. I think its the parents that suffer the most. Just looking at their pathetic little faces makes me want to cry!
