We tried trifolding with Thirsites and couldn't get them too work. The front velcro strip would always rolled into his tummy. They just seemed too flimsy to me. He is 26lbs and we were using the sz M. We just switched to a Super Brite sz M and it works much better. I just don't like how "plasticy" they feel compared to Thirsties.

WOTB: trifolded GMD UB brown with a hemp doubler in a Super Brite



I really like my stash right now. The only thing that's bothering me is that the rise on my GMD UB browns is really to short for anything but trifolding, and the rise on my MEOS is also rapidly becoming to short. So unless E potty trains in the next 2-3 months, I am going to need to get more prefolds. I was thinking 6 more UB brown (for trifolding) and 6 more toddlers (for snappi'ing.) So right now I am ISO those things. However, I have nothing for sale at the moment, nor do I have anything for sale.



Ditto!

I love thirsties covers! Way better than the bummis! I think a large would be good. We have mediums and though they still fit the rise is a little short on them. My little gal is 28lbs at 2 yrs & almost 4 months old if that helps at all.

Re: Back to Basics Babes, It be Thursday!

peircing thing... all three of my girls have theirs done we got #1 done at about 3. it was a PITA. she tugged at them and it was hard to care for them. hair got in the wayy...etc. #2 was done at 1yo. much better. still young enough that she was not into as much... and no hair. i guess just younger and cleaner toddlers can be yucky. #3 i got done at 6mo. same thing. we leave the peircers in. it hurts my fingers to get them out. theres no way they can get them out.
in hs i had 5 in each ear. one in cartlige. i have had that one long enough it doesnt close up. i havent hd one in for a couple yrs, but can. early 20s i did the twins uch: and around 30 did the tragus(ear nubby) that hurt about as much or more. any way ifreed the twins after a yr, and the tragus when i got an inner ear infection.
wotb bcpf brown interlock soaker and fleece zipper pjs. she hates the feet.
wota sew, prep interlock.... clean go to po. mostly SSDD.

I love how different covers work differently for babies and mamas. My friend said that she loved her BSWWs much better than her Super Brites, and I just never found the love for the BSWWs as much as my BSBs. I always got more wicking with them for some reason. And Melissa, thanks for the rise info. My problem with E is always rise.

I'm pretty content with my stash. DD's thighs are to chubby for her small FBs that we use for overnight so I'm putting them up fs today to fund other pockets or aios (still trying to decide). Otherwise I love everything. I have some gdiapers that we don't really use because I am waiting for her to get a bit bigger. They are still a bit bulky on her.

Re: Back to Basics Babes, It be Thursday!

I have a family cloth question (or more). How many of you use family cloth? If you do, is DH on board? Do you just keep them in a little wetbag and toss in with diapers or do seperate load? How much do you have?
Ideally, I would stop buying paper products alltogether but DH would never have it. I want to get some FC so bad and maybe eventually he'd jump on board just like with the CDs.

We use family cloth. DP and I both use it, but I admit that we generally use it just for pee. Don't know why really... And yes, we just keep a small hanging wetbag in the bathroom and then throw it in with the dipes when I wash. For cloth, I just cut up old receiving blankets into 6X6 squares and they sit in a basket on the back of the toilet. One of these days I'd like to invest in some proper toilet cloth (preferably from Sarah ), but for now the flannel is working just fine.
