Thailand humidity?

Hi, we will be spending our pregnancy (due in Sept) in Thailand, and was wondering if there were others here as well. It is our first baby and I have been exploring our options with CDing. My major concern is the humidity in this part of the world and getting the diapers to dry.
Thanks!

Re: Thailand humidity?

I lived in thailand for 3 years. Just moved back in August. Laundry isn't an issue, even with humidity. Thais hang dry all their laundry. We hung most of ours as well. It dries very fast in the sun. Thailand has 3 seasons. The rainsy season is from June-Oct. It rains daily and this is the most humid time of year. The cool season is mid Nov- Feb. Temperatures are still pretty warm but humidity is much less. Very pleasant time of year. The hot season is March- June. Very hot and dry. No rain usually and temperatures run around 100. More humid than the cool season but not as bad as rainy season. This central thailand and south. Temperatures are a bit milder in the northern areas like Chang Mai.

You won't find cloth diapers there so bring all you need.

Where will you be living? We lived 3 years outside of Pattaya.

Re: Thailand humidity?

Thanks for the advice! We'll be in the North - Chiang Mai area. You think I'll have no problems drying whatever kind of diaper - AIO, Covers, Pockets, etc? That was my biggest concern - if I got some of the thicker ones would they end up sour or moldy instead of clean.

I'll be sure to bring what I need! Thanks again!

Re: Thailand humidity?

It won't be a problem. It will dry pretty quickly in the sun despite the humidity. We never had any mold issues with our clothes. Detergent choices are not good. Don't use the powdered stuff which is what the thais use. There is a liquid brand usa that should be ok. You might be able to find tide at the international groceries but it will cost nearly $20 a bottle.

Enjoy your time in thailand. It is a lovely country to live. Chang mai has become pretty touristy. Get out to chang rai and up to the hill tribe country and you will really get a feel of the culture. Temperatures are a bit milder during the hot and rainy season and very pleasant in the cool season.
