DS is 7 months old today- >95th% height, and 75-90% weight.
He is so cute!!! Thanks for sharing the pics!!! I love seeing him play! DS2 is 3/11/11, but so tiny compared to your son!!! I agree 2 bamboo is too bulky for me! But for daycare I am having to make my Alva's more bulky.

Got it- thanks! Will be ordering the new spider man print, red stars, giraffe minky, and the white cow minky- maybe a couple more.

Wow!! With one bamboo insert, that diaper lasted 3.5 hours, a nap, and a poop, without a leak!

Here is round 2- again with 1 bamboo insert folded in front. This lasted us only 15 minutes or so because Trip decided he wanted to break in this diaper as well





Round 3

He is sooo stinking CUTE! I fold my bamboo inserts in the front as well. I tried it in the back once and it didn't lay as nicely..One bamboo inserts lasts me FOREVER as well. LOVE LOVE these diapers. That's why I'm ordering more I only ordered 9 or so for me in the last coop and wished I had ordered more.

Honestly, I was a little worried about selling my stash (I have 200+ diapers) because I feel like once I do SOMETHING will go wrong with Alvas..but honestly. After washing these puppies so many times already (because they are the only ones I WANT to use) I am going to start photographing my stash today and list them when the coop im ordering with closes and all my new ones come in LOL. I am so happy with this it's ridiculous!

I may just save a few aplix diapers for DH. He doesn't mind snaps though... I just think the hip snaps are annoying for him.
You HAVE to post action shots of the "s" series when you get them! I LOVE the multi colored snaps on them and they are SO tempting. But I ready somewhere on here they are a little more bulky then the regular alvas?

I didn't think I even liked the rock print or the other black one with the yellow and blue design on it but NOW I do.


Now I might have to add to my ever-so-long order!
