"The time has come," the Walrus said,
"To talk of many things:
Of shoes-and ships-and sealing-wax-
Of cabbages-and kings-
And why the sea is boiling hot-
And whether pigs have wings."

- The Walrus and the Carpenter by Lewis Carrol
(From Through the Looking-Glass and What Alice Found There, 1872)

Adventures With Cloth Diapers: part 2

Okay, I know that I was supposed to write about the BumGenius brand of cloth diapers a while ago.  Here's the update.

I have a hand full of the 3.0 all-in-ones.  I put one pair of them on Abbey and laughed out loud, promptly taking them off and vowing that we would try again when she was a little bit bigger.  They are just too big on her, and even though the makers claim that the sizes are adjustable to grow with your baby, they looked absolutely ridiculous on her little body and I'm way too vain for that.  That being said, they do make a sized diaper, which we haven't tried.

BUT I have now purchased the cloth inserts for the g diapers and I really love them.  Hands down, my favorite part of this diapering system is that you don't have to launder the outer diaper "little g pants" with every change.  It cuts way down on laundry and bulk in a diaper bag and on the changing table.  Granted the little g pants are sized, so we are going to need to purchase more when Abbey reaches 13 pounds.  Just around the corner.  But both the disposable and cloth liners are great - the cloth liners particularly comfy and absorbent - they look adorable on her, and they fit.


All this being said, we'll still continue with disposables when we're out and about for a long period of time and probably overnight.  That first morning diaper is a doozey.
