And it was interesting.
Friday night, I "pre-stuffed" all the diapers. I figured then it would be easy to just grab one and change her. I had her changing station all set up to do cloth diapers (it was all ready to do disposable), by rearranging her drawers to make one for cloth and setting up the pail to put the wet/dirty diapers in.
Her first diaper of Saturday morning was a disposable. She usually wakes up in a really good mood, but there is a very small window of time to get her changed and fed before she looses her patience, so this was not the time I wanted to figure out her sizing. And really it was a blessing because she pooped and again it was super runny and mucus filled. I am glad that wasn't our first diaper.
We got it on her. Kaitlyn helped. I wished I would have gotten the velcro closure diapers. She is in an inbetween size on the snaps. With her chubby thighs, it can't get tighter there, but the tummy isn't as tight as I wanted. But she sure was cute!
At about 2 hours and 15 minutes, I went to change her and she leaked out the top. Not a lot or anymore than she did the night before in a Huggies, but enough to be irritating. I changed her, loaded up my diaper bag with some cloth diapers and off we went.
This time, I was at the fabric store with my sisters and mom (look for some fabulous designs this week!) and she needed to be changed. It was 2 hours and 45 minutes since the last change. She leaked. Aunt Samantha and Grandma decided they did not like the cloth diapers.
When we got home, she was changed again, no leaks this time (just about 2 hours after the last changing), and again an hour and a half later (she was about to go down for her nap) without a leak. After her very short nap, she was very fussy. I was having a hard time figuring out what it was. She had been fed, wouldn't sleep and so in a moment of trying anything to figure it out, I put her in a huggie to see if maybe she wasn't liking the cloth diapers. She still cried, but I figured she was probably overly tired, I mean she had maybe slept a grand total of an hour and a half through the day and was just fighting off sleep. And she was a little feverish (99.5) so who knows why she was so upset, she just was.
So our first day was ok. She had 2 leaks, 3 that didn't, and they are cute. I know that I am going to need to add some velcro styles to my stash and I am going to need more inserts. I'm thinking about making them, I've looked up how and it's super easy, and the average cost to make them is about 50 cents, so I'm going to give it a try.
And that was our first day of cloth.
