Re: How is your DH/DP/bf with CD?

jason will snappi a prefold if i give it to him, He is thankful not to have to buy so many disposable diapers anymore (we do still sposie at night for both girls). Today a package of diapers came and he actually opened it and said "wow those ones look great and really daddy friendly " I LOVE THAT MAN!!!!!! While doing homework, he will stop to change one of the girls for me.... which sounds like a pleasant thing to do, but he is so concentrated it is hard to interupt him! AHH daddies are such wonderful blessings! (I am tired and miss him currently ..he is a thrid shifter.. sorry for going off)

In the beginning, when dh changed dipes, he'd take the cloth off and put a disposable on (we always had a pack on hand.) Now that we don't keep disposables around, of course he just uses cloth. I leave him prestuffed pockets and everything is hunky dory!

Re: How is your DH/DP/bf with CD?

My dh doesn't do diaper changing anymore (it doesn't bother me) so he's pretty indifferent. He hasn't really said much about it but I did ask him recently what he thinks of them and he said "they're ok."

Re: How is your DH/DP/bf with CD?

my dh is fine with me using cloth on the baby. he knows i like it and he knows its better all around. that said....he only changes our dd if i'm not available which it isn't too often than i'm not home. if he is home with her its usually just so i run to the store or the Y or something....i leave prestuffed HH pockets for him to use. He leaves snaps on too loose...oneday i came home to my dd with a FB barely haning on to her skinny butt! Another day i came home and he had put an orange prestuffed HH pocket on her and a pink and white pullup wool soaker over it he said he thought thats what she was supposed to wear ! I've since told him to NOT pay attention to what i use on her and he is to only use the dipes with the velcro (HHs). I think he'd be okay if i left him fitteds with covers or a pf that was to be trifolded in a cover (i doubt he could snappi ) but its the different things that confuse him since he rarely changes the dipes....so i make sure to have a stack of the prestuffed HHs ready for him When we first started CDing all i used was pfs and a handful of fitteds from ebay and covers. I always left the fitteds for him and he knew he had to put a cover over it....cause that was all we had. At that time i thought pockets were WAY overpriced and how in the world did mamas afford to diaper their babys in POCKETS!?!

I am also new to cd'ing. But this is what I started with - I had a couple pockets that I'd prestuff. Now he'll do fitteds with a cover (if I am here, I double check to make sure there is a cover on her, though). He won't touch a prefold, though. It took some time, but he's got the hang of it, I think

My dh wouldn't do it in the beginning. I think after watching me for a few months he got comfortable and now will change but only wet ones. You could try practice on a doll or teddy, get more dh friendly products, ie aplix, aio's

Re: How is your DH/DP/bf with CD?

My dh was not interested in the beginning because he did not want to use pins. Then i showed him a snappi and it took a while but in no time he was changing more diapers than me (showoff ) Now is he a pro he has even taken cds to work to show his friends (very proud moment) I have to say aios are a great way to get someone into cding because they are so easy. Sorry now i am rambling HTH!!
