Re: Do I replace my stash or go sposies?

I hate disposables with passion, so I would vamp up the stash. Plus, you'll still be saving money if he potty trains "on time" and you'll save even more if he's late. And you can use them for any future children, if you're having more, and if you're not, then don't forget to figure in that you'll get some $$ back when you sell them. No one would buy your used disposables, lol! AND...you'll get to do fluffy shopping!!

Re: Do I replace my stash or go sposies?

I have also heard the flip organics are really great for heavy wetters. Got some to try, but haven't yet. Some people double with microfiber or hemp for even more absorbtion. I have been researching overnight solutions for an older child who has been trained during the day for quite some time but just sleeps too deeply at night. Those fabrics are often suggested for overnight and heavy wetters for not getting leaks.

Re: Do I replace my stash or go sposies?

Sorry... just saw the comment about "doesn't it take longer to potty train when you use disposables?" It made me laugh, because I only tried that with my second child thinking it would be easier on me (husband was deployed). Well, my son figured out right away that he could pee in the disposable and suffer no ill consequences! So, yeah... I think it's definitely less effective, but it may depend on the child. With my child, it was not a good fit. We had to go back to cloth.

I'd go with cloth since you can resell and hopefully they will work. Sposies you are literally throwing your money away.

I would try some padfolded flats and some new capri covers. They are trimmer so even if you needed to add doublers ( I would recommend Hemp Babies) it would still not be too fluffy.
I agree with this too.
