#ClothDiapers – After the hurdle and before the cloth

August 15, 2011

So.  I think we’ve finally gotten over the “Hurdle” of missing our Pampers and Huggies.  Granted. There are those few occasions where we terribly miss them still – but we’re mostly over it.  We’ve mostly gotten the wetness factor under control; and we’re washing sheets a lot less frequently now.

Thank God!


I don’t know if I mentioned much of the background of what we used to do.

Adventures-In-Cloth-Diapering-Banner2Andrew is a bit over 2 1/2 years old – and when he was born we used Pampers on him. Until he got to a size 4.  That’s where I felt that pampers started not working as well for him, and we tried all the generics (which we were terribly disappointed with) and then switched over to Huggies – which we stuck with until now.

Ethan on the other hand is 9 months old, and he has been a pampers baby since the beginning.  Every time I ever put a Huggies diaper on him(which we had several smaller packages of) I would have to bathe him right afterwards because of the little Gel Beads.  I learned my lesson on generic diapers back with Andrew, and never purchased them myself for Ethan.DSC08621

Its funny how the both boys needed different brands of diapers.  I wonder if it has more to do with the content of their urine vs. the diaper itself??  Maybe Similac has a partnership with Pampers that makes Huggies diapers suck for Simliac babies Winking smile  LOL. <Although Andrew drank Sams Club formula which is based off of the Enfamil formulas, and he used Pampers until he was around age 1> Conspiracy’s I tell you!!
