I hate prepping diapers

I hate prepping diapers. Hate it hate it hate it. Especially hemp. Too bad I like using hemp so much...

I got a dozen LL flats the other day and two VBSN hemp dipes... Im dying to try out the flats and kind of need to use the VBSNs... but so many wash/dry cycles!

and im in a building where i pay for each load... so seriously thats like $10 just to prep them! LOL!

Anyone else as impatient as I am?

Re: I hate prepping diapers

I just wash one time before using and expect that they won't be super absorbent the first few uses I hate prepping too.

Re: I hate prepping diapers

I only prep if they are brand new Chinese or Indian PF's. Otherwise I just use them.

Re: I hate prepping diapers

I don't prep normally, but I got some colorgrown flats and washed them once and put them on the babe and they totally repelled all the pee out the legs. It was actually funny to watch, but now I know I need to prep them to even use them.

Re: I hate prepping diapers

When we used coin-op washers, I prepped our pfs by boiling them for 5 min. Then they only needed 1 wash.

Re: I hate prepping diapers

Don't do it!!! Say no to prepping!!!

In order for a diaper to be fully prepped, you have to wash it a gazillion times. Okay, maybe 6-10. So I figure, no way Im doing that. and when I read mamas washing their diapers 2-3 times to prep, I mean, whats the point?

Just let your babes wear them! They will absorb. Maybe not optimally, but certainly good enough for around the house!

Re: I hate prepping diapers

This is why used prefolds are worth it too me, no prep work needed.
