The potty training continues. But, Thea hardly ever poops in her diaper any more, and when she does, it is usually because I wasn’t watching (like today when Thea and I take a shower, and I put Thea down on a towel on the floor all naked while I finish up only to look out 1 minute later to see her crawling and pooping at the same time…fail. But cheers to multitasking).
As for peeing, we’ve ebbed and flowed with progress. We’ve had a couple days where we’ve gone all day and only used two diapers (TWO!) because Thea and I are on the same schedule. Most of the time we align hit and miss, still.
However, because I’ve been trying to be on top of taking her potty every 45-90 minutes, I’m usually changing a barely wet diaper due to missing one pee session in between (which I just have a hard time putting urine back on my baby, even if the diaper is still mostly dry…). AKA we’ve been going through a lot of diapers.
So! We’re moving to cloth diapers. Had the idea come to mind the other day. I’m pretty excited about it. I got a pack of clothe diapers for a friend for our emergency storage, and hoped I didn’t need them. But now, they are a godsend.
These diapers are pretty slick. Basically, they’ve got an outer-shell with a changeable pad. We go through the pads during the day, and throw them in with whatever laundry I need to have washed that night. And when I’m out of clean pads, back to disposable diapers.
Side note: I did learn by sad experience that cloth diapers are awful for night sleeping, though. Thea pees it up at night. I came in to get her mid night to feed her and she was sopping wet. Gross. Poor baby.
So all in all, I’m not a hippy. I just like saving money, especially when it’s not a disgusting experience as is the cloth diaper reputation.
