June 4, day 4 of the old school challenge!

I didn't see this post so forgive me if I double posted... I can delete it

Here is Logan in his mommy made flat (just some birdseye i had laying around and i serged 2 sides) with a bamboo ft doubler



and here are the shorties he wore over it. my sister made these for her son and they were handed down


This combo lasted all night and I couldn't be happier that I tried this ... it's so simple

Re: June 4, day 4 of the old school challenge!

Sorry I didn't start the thread. I went home sick last night so I wasn't on the comp at work to start it near midnight.

As for folding flats, I just follow the sticky and use the origami fold with a MF doubler in the wet zone only. I'll try to remember to take pics the next diaper change.
Dd is still in a flat/MF towel combo! (My pics are all going to be the same, just with different shirts, lol.) This morning dd scooted her way allll the way across the bed and fell off dh's side (my side where she sleeps is safe/can't fall off). Luckily the huuuge stuffed pocket she was wearing must have cushioned the fall . Still no extreme here, esp since dh puts her to bed.

Re: June 4, day 4 of the old school challenge!

I found a sposie last night and, vainly hoping that it might help her sleep better than she had her past 3 nights in cloth, I put it on her.

Didn't do much.

Back in a pf with Gerber pants this morning.. but after running around trying to pack up my 6yo fot a week long road trip and trying to get my house semi presentable before my parents get here to pick him up (on top of the usual morning chaos), I wasn't up to trying to pin another crunchy line-dried pf on my squirming fussy 8mo and I didn't have a snappi handy...

She's in a mutt.

Re: June 4, day 4 of the old school challenge!

Well DH ruined my challenge...he put dd in a pocket this morning before he left for work...I said "hey she needs a flat or PF this morning" (I wasn't doing extreme so she was in a pocket last night) He said "Why? looks like you finally got all the diapers washed" hehe! I didn't tell him I had the clean pockets in a basket in the laundry room to discourage him from grabbing one. That's what I get for folding an putting all the pockets away

Re: June 4, day 4 of the old school challenge!

LOL I have a ghetto couch too. Yay for old free couch!

I went to take pics and my camera died. Silly me, not charging it when I've barely been using it . So I have one pic of a flat folded in half--not very helpful yet!

So instead... pic of MY ghetto couch! (under my happy furry PF)
