I'm a bit of a diaper slump

I'm not happy with my stash at all lately.... I'm not reaching for my PW's unless they are the last thing in the cabinet (those who know me know that is not normal!), I'm not using my wool because I haven't lanolized and I need some more balm. I only have a few fitteds that make me happy, my SEP's and Lukes Drawers, but he is outgrowing the Lukes so that leaves me with 4 fitteds that I like.... I sold all my other covers and only have 3 pockets in the house...
My mom and MIL refuse to use fitteds and wool, its too complicated for them and they don't like the soaking wet fitted. My mom has to babysit at the end of the month for a wedding we're going to, so I've got to get some Gram friendly dipes for her.
Not sure what the solution is.... guess I need to get some lanolin here so I can use my wool... then maybe sell all my PW's?? Gotta get some pockets or maybe AIO's for mom and MIL.

I guess I am thankful that I have a nighttime system that works - VBSN under crat - at least I'm happy with that!

Re: I'm a bit of a diaper slump

any particular reason for not lovin' the pws? unless you're really sure that you're not going to miss them i probably wouldn't sell all of them to buy pockets. (you'll probably hear that a lot) how many pws are we talking about...

as for mil & mom & fitteds/wool - how often are they involved in diaper changing? if they take care of your dc frequently then buying diapers that they'll use would seem reasonable to me, but if it's only very occasionally, then i don't think i would want to change my stash/system that i liked just for them.

Re: I'm a bit of a diaper slump

I have over 20 large PW's.... and you're probably right, I shouldn't sell them to buy pockets. I find that Corey gets rashy in PUL (heat rash) and that was my reason for going to fitteds and wool in the first place. I really don't know why I'm not reaching for the PW's lately, the fit is still great on him.... not sure what my problem is!

They are very infrequently involved, I only really need a handful of diapers for the two of them to use. DH uses the fitteds and wool with no issue, so we would probably only use pockets/aio's for trips out and about and then for mom and mil.

Re: I'm a bit of a diaper slump

that's a lot of pws. maybe sell your luke's drawers that don't fit & buy a couple pockets/aios. have you tried fleece pockets/aios as an alternative to pul? if that doesn't generate quite enough $$ then maybe part with a couple of pws that you're not as fond of.

Re: I'm a bit of a diaper slump

Or take a little cloth diaper vacation for a week with sposies and then go back to your PW's and wool. If you still don't like them then sell a few and try some knew things.

Re: I'm a bit of a diaper slump

Sposies aren't an option, Corey's allergic...

I have used fleece AIO's in the past - PW's and SEP's, he outgrew the ones I had and we never replaced them. That is a good idea though!
I think I'll list my Lukes when they come out of the wash tonight.

KAren, you're probably just bored. Maybe mix it up a little bit? Sell some of your PW's (who REALLY needs 20) and do something fun...kwim?
