surgery and cloth diaper question PLEASE HELP!!

My little one is having surgery at the end of August. He will be confined to his tummy for a bit afterwards. I need a good diaper solution for this!! I am thinking prefolds and side aplix covers? I needs to be easy too, becuase we are being sent to washington DC. WE will likely have to wash at the laundry mat!!

Re: surgery and cloth diaper question PLEASE HELP!!

I think I read some where that your DS had spinal bifida, maybe not, but I have a 5 year old half sister that had it. When she had her surgery, the docs had them lay her on an absorbent pad (like a puppy pad ) so the incision could breath better. She was only in a diaper at night time. Prefolds would work if that was what they had you do. The cover for G-Diapers is back aplix. Here is a link http://www.gdiapers.com/shop/product_info.php?cPath=22&products_id=675449&osCsi d=2b201df415c9343889eb271f76bb59dd I have never used them, but know some moms use them with prefolds. HTH Sending your little one lots of .

I hope everything goes well.
I would check with the hospital, some won't let you use cloth, they want to weigh the wet diapers to be sure there's enough output. If you use cd's I think pf's & side wraps sound fine, you could change those with him laying on his tummy. Do you have any flats? Those would be the easiest to wash & dry, you wouldn't really have to do any special folds, just fold it into a big rectangle and lay it in the cover. Hang in there!!

Yes, he has spina bifida. He will wear dipes, with the back open or very loose. They should not have a problem with cloth. It is a military hospital, and in general they are really supportive of breastfeeding, cloth diapering etc. You know the less money they spend the better!!

Thanks for the suggestions, I do have some flats!! I will look more into those gdipes. I have heard of mamas talking about them!! I planned on making some covers though. I can get more for my money that way!! I could buy one gdipe and use it as a pattern!! Whayever I do I need to decide quick!!

I don't have any suggestions...just saw your ISO and wanted to let you know that I will be praying for your family, your sweet little guy and will add him to my church's prayer request list.
