Cloth Diapering Day 3

Since I don’t have Original Dawn at home, I couldn’t strip my now clean-but-water-repelling diapers.  All other cloth diapers were dirty.  Besides, I was planning to go out today.  It was the perfect day to try the G-Flapper cloth insert for gDiapers.

The G-Flappers I ordered were all-bamboo.  I use the bamboo velour as top layer because it is the softest, but really any layer would do.

After I got home, I switched to Gro Baby.  I love their hook closure! (I haven’t tried the snap closure yet.)  Since the top part of the whole front panel is a very soft loop, I could easily put the diaper on DS despite his usual rolling and wiggling.  For better or worse, DS decided to poop in it while fighting sleep–luckily, everything was caught by the soaker pad, and I can reuse the shell with a clean soaker pad.

He is now wearing a Gro Baby with a booster pad on top of the soaker pad.  I suspect it won’t last through the night, so I already have another Gro Baby with booster pad lying by my bedside.
