Day One

Can I just say how much I appreciate you my fellow bloggers! In a time where I am feel so stressed, I can create things (even if they are dumb) and you share your insight and lovely comments and it brightens my day. So, THANK YOU!! Give yourself a pat on the back, you deserve it!

With that said, the next few topics will basically be about bodily functions (of my one year old, not me!) So those with weak stomachs scroll down!

Today was my first complete day of cloth diapers. I have now made up 4 so I thought I would see what I was getting myself into. I have to say, the pee diapers, not bad. I can do those! But then my son decided to unload the biggest poop I could imagine. I made the mistake (BIG mistake) of feeding him raisins. I mean, ewwww!!!

My husband was home and was completely mortified while he watched me scrap baby poop into the toilet. He was like "Ummmm, are you sure you want to do this?" (I have spent a whole lot of time on these diapers, of course I want have to do this!) He was throughly impressed though that I stuck to my guns and didn't just throw the diaper out.

Hopefully, tomorrow will be a better day. And maybe, just maybe, no raisins?!

Have a great night and remember, you made my day!


  1. Great solution: Measure the inside of the diaper and make a liner out of fleece. I have a bunch made out of brown fleece (that's just what I had on hand) having only that liner all messy is SO much easier to clean up. I absolutely hate when I forget to put in the liners. It just would go between the baby's skin and the diaper. The fleece keeps the baby nice and dry, and it keeps the diaper nice and "clean" (you know what I mean). I really should put all this helpful info into some posts, I've been meaning to for a long time, but it's just a bit of work. Anyway, good luck, you've gotten through the first one, and that's the hardest! It's really hard at first, but if you stick with it they are totally worth it ($$$$$!!!!!) Good luck.
