The I HATE SPOSIES RANT...

I am getting ready to leave on vacation and I always use sposies the day before so I can wash and have everything ready to go on my trips. Well, today when I'm running all over kingdom come, dh has a MAJOR blow out all over my sling...the one I want to take on our trip. Now, more laundry...

It happens EVERYTIME I use sposies...all up the back, all over the front, out the leg holes, all over clothes, all over me...what a MESS!

And the biggest complaint I hear about cloth from my friends who use sposies...to messy...WHATEVER!!!

Re: The I HATE SPOSIES RANT...

I know. DD had the runs a week ago and I put sposies on her because I didn't like having to rinse her dipes out in the toilet. Instead, she blew out her diaper and I was cleaning poo off her high chair, the sink, her change pad... all over the house. If she was in cloth, at least it would have been all in one place!

She's in sposies right now because we're dealing with yeast and I'm afraid of ruining my diapers. She has spots on her legs, not her bottom, so I can't even use a liner to protect the dipes.

I'm sorry that you had such a mess to clean up, and boo for sposies, but I just have to laugh at this part:

"dh has a MAJOR blow out all over my sling"

That totally stinks. I agree, I always hear people complain that cloth diapers are too messy and leak a lot. WHAT are they talking about? We have NO leaks in cloth, none. Huggies though, its daily explosions.

I hate sposies for that same reason. Instead of sposies try maybe flats, they can sit a bit longer without the funk setting in, or they wash and dry super quick right before you leave.

We were having rash issues for a month. I finally resorted to an inch thick layer of Desitin in a sposie.. not only did the rash get WORST... but she pooped OUT the sides and down her leg..... That has NEVER happened with a fitted diaper for me!

Re: The I HATE SPOSIES RANT...

yeah we used sposies for 2 weeks to deal with yeast (or we thought it was, turned out it was related to dairy, but anyway) and we had a blowout probably every other day. i hated them.

not to mention they smell bad. ugh, made my whole room stink. and that was just the clean ones, lol

Re: The I HATE SPOSIES RANT...

Isn't it amazing the things you notice after using cloth? LOL I never once realized how disgusting sposies stunk, until I had them totally out of my house for a while. Then I started babysitting 2 little girls that wore Luvs...and OHM Y WORD! The stench was awful! And the noise! LOL I swear you could hear every move the oldest made from the crunching of her diaper!
