Hi! I'm Katie and I have 3 kids! I have a 6 (almost 7) year old, a 2 (almost 3) year old, and my 4 1/2 month old son. This is the first time I'm EBFing and he was going through diapers like crazy lol so I decided to try CDing! Esp since where we are (we're military) BFing, cloth diapering, baby wearing, and co sleeping are very big things! (I hardly co sleep but I do all the rest now )
Anyway, so today is my first day with CDs. I'm really excited. So I may come here with a bunch of different questions off and on lol. Oh and I bought like 61 diapers HA HA! I did that though because my 2 year old is off and on if she wants to potty train and hasn't been doing well with it, so I figured the cheaper way to go was CDing (esp since her diapers cost $20 for 100 and they do not hold in smell at all lol. (I use parents choice for her)
I will include my son in his first CD
Okay so a few questions, I was told I can use All Free and Clear for detergent. That's okay right? That's what we have because DH is allergic to a lot of detergents (I found out the hard way to never buy the blue colored lol poor guy had a rash for about 2 weeks!) Also, after a poop diaper, when going to wash, what do I use so it doesn't stain? Is spraying Fantastic on it okay? Or do I need special stuff for that? And (this may sound dumb) with Desmond's diaper, it looks really bulky under his onesie. Is that normal because I have it snapped to the smallest or did I do something wrong? Lol. I have two liners in each diaper because I figure that's the safest bet, or should I only use one unless at night?
Sorry for all the questions! I'm just so excited about it! Here's Desmond in his new cloth diaper!
