bottom line

We have officially started cloth diapering.  I am so excited to see this little bubble butt around here more often.  
I mean check her out...baby got back.


The jury is still out on:

Kissa's Newborn All-In-One Diaper by Kissaluvs
Kissaluvs Marvels One Size AIO
FuzziBunz Perfect Size Small Pocket Diaper
Flipz Pocket Diaper
Thirsties Covers with Pre-folds
Thirsties Fab Fitter Duo with a cover
Thirsties Pocket Diaper

Here is what I've learned so far:

-FuzziBunz materials feel oh-so-good.
-Pre-folds are complicated.  I got peed on last night.  Looks like momma still has some learning to do.
-Pre-folds take a longer time to dry than expected.
-Wet bags are a must.
-Kissa's Newborn diaper does not absorb the poop like Fuzzi or Thirsties
-Snappi's look scary and feel scary but are wonderful.  You can pull them tighter than you think.
-I'm still trying to get the hang of flannel wipes, more on that later.
-All-in-one, fitteds, and pockets are proving to be easier than pre-folds, but I'm told the pre-fold thing takes a lot of patience and practice.  I'm still working on it.

EJ is seeming to love them a lot more than sposies, yay!
