Smile DC Metro moms!!

Thought I would start a new thread for us DC, Northern VA, Suburban Maryland moms.

I live in Alexandria and work in DC, and have been CDing for 2+ years now. We started when DS was four weeks old, and he's now 27 months. I WOH (well, duh, I just said that) and have to use disposable at "school" but he's in cloth mornings, evenings, overnight, and weekends. Now that he's a big kid, and we don't have to change him every other minute, I only do about one load of laundry/week.

We had a diaper service for the first four months, http://www.moderndiaperservice.com/. It was great, but once DH and I went back to work, and we started daycare full time, it was better for us to do our own laundry. For the next kid, we'll do cloth from the beginning using the stash we have built up, but the service was a nice way to ease into it.

We use bumGenius 1.0's for daytime, stuffed with one cottonbabies onesize and one Little Lambs hemp (terrible diapers, but I love the hemp inserts.) At night, we use PT Fuzzi Bunz with one cottonbabies onesize and THREE joey bunz hemp inserts. Kid has quite the bubble butt. And we use flushable liners. We wash, line dry, and reuse the ones that were peed on, and flush the others. It got DH on board, so that's all that counts, right?

That's our life in cloth.

Re: DC Metro moms!!

Hey, gals, just wanted to let you know there's a Yahoogroup for DC area CD families. We share tips, questions, FSOT requests, and sometimes get together in person. If you want to join, search for DCCDers at yahoogroups (not allowed to post links yet!).

Thanks!

Re: DC Metro moms!!

Wow - never thought about washing and reusing flushables - I would have thought they'd disintegrate. Thanks for the tip! We don't use them much but maybe we will now!

Re: DC Metro moms!!

DS is beginning to be interested in the potty and wants to wear Big Boy Underwear. Just when I think the stash is complete...

Off to research BBU/trainers.
