I swore I would NEVER CD...

Especially when I found out I was having twins. Then the sposies I was gifted started to run out.

Sigh.

So I'm here. I'm trying to be excited. I am going with flats and covers to save $. My first time CDing was today and of course it was a poop! My boys are EBF and only have poops every other day, so they are mostly exploding diapers.

This should be interesting!

Welcome and have fun. Believe it or not many find cloth to be addicting.

Practice will help with the poopslosions. Try rolling the sides in like a jelly roll cake. This creates a barrier the poop must get through. Also make them tighter than you think you should as the diaper will loosen as soon as you are done putting it on. Also out your pins/snappis/boingos right above the hip rather than the waist. This prevents the diaper from sliding down.

Re: I swore I would NEVER CD...

I swore i wouldn't either; and was pretty skepitical at first; almost looking for things to go wrong so i could say I gave it a shot and it just didn't work... but it slowly grew on me and now I am hooked (although, I still probably use sposies more than I should)
