Cloth diaper related discussion
Rashes, reactions, red marks, wing droop...Have a problem? Put it here.
I have three month twins. I started CD 5 weeks ago. Right now the girls weigh about 13 pounds. The problems I was expecting with CD aren't an issue at all! The washing isn't a big deal, they are very easy to use (I use prefolds/covers and bumGenius pockets), and they are easy to travel out of the house with. I was not expecting how bulky they are. There is so much padding it's hard for the babies to move or sit up in. Is anyone else having this problem? I do not have the budget to buy diapers for two babies in different sizes, especially since we will probably not have anymore children (we also have a todler). That's why I have bumgenius one size and covers that are one size. Any suggestions? Anyone else feeling this way?
My daughter is 7 weeks old, and about 11 lbs...yes they are bulky, but I don't think it will hinder them learning how to move or anything like that. I figure a lot of other babies have learned how to do everything with "diaper butt". I have found that sizing up the clothes helps them fit better. You could also use hemp inserts, which would be thinner then microfiber.
For your problem I think using of cloth diaper for your twins will be better for you. Cloth diapering is an economical and environmentally friendly alternative to disposable diapers, which are expensive and can be wasteful. However, the start-up cost for cloth diapers can be staggering. Making your own cloth diapers is an excellent alternative to buying them. Read on to learn how to make cloth diapers.
Thanks and Regards,
