No one warned me - sposies STINK!!!!

So maybe I'm just naive, but MAN I never knew sposies STUNK so badly!!!! We went on vacation and for the 2 days where we were flying there and back we used sposies . We only had access to a washing machine for the middle part of the trip, then we used cloth. On the way out we used 7th generation sposies, and they only smell funky when we peed or pooped on them. BUT we ran out of cloth one day and needed to go somewhere (where we couldn't EC), and so DH bought some Luvs. DA$% do those stink! They stink before you even get them on the kid, then when they actually pee or poo.... whooooooooo... We had a ziploc bag to store the dirties in and it got to the point where I couldnt' open the bag again b/c I'd get nausious. A whole pail of 3 day old cloth dipes NEVER stunk as bad as 3 HOURS of disposables (with my dd, that's about 2-3 dipes if she's awake)!

How do people use these on a regular basis?

Funny I used sposies with ds and never noticed, but once you use cloth you really notice it. We use sposies sometimes when out and dh and my mom use them when they are with dd. IMO Pampers smell less than the others.

I'm not claiming that my CD's don't stink AT ALL, I mean, after all, pee and poop are going to stink. I know I've read something about fishy smells, but I think they're always related to diaper creams. Maybe you need to strip?

Well, all but one of my cds are used, so possibly, since I don't use diaper creams.

Anyhow, I just switched to cds and it seems the stink is worse w/them...but what do I know, I have horrible allergies and can't smell much to begin with.

Lisa - I think the fishy smell is the amonia/fermentation smell when urine hits a dipe that has build up. Try stripping your dipes with a squirt of Dawn in the wash cycle (instead of soap), and then rewash, rewash, rewash, rewash again & again all day with no soap. You want those babies sparkling!!

HTH!

Good grief, really???!!! Is this what I get for buying used cds?

So I assume you mean when I rewash to wash on hot over and over again? Like specifically, when do I stop? I am one of those people that needs exact direction or I just freeze up, unable to function at all!
