    Default For those times you can't do cloth...

    I know posting on a cloth board about disposables is kind of weird, but I also know that a lot of you do use them at night or while traveling, etc. and I just really had to tell somebody who would be interested...I am seriously in love (as in love with a disposable as you can be) with the Comforts for Baby Chlorine-Free diapers. They're the Kroger/Fry's store brand, so I guess you can't get them everywhere, but I really want to support them so they stick around, because wow. They never leak, they don't smell, and they're half or less of the price of all the other chlorine-free brands like 7th Gen and Earth's Best (which I cannot express enough hate for--leak city!) I was forced recently while traveling to buy another kind of regular disposable and OMG THE SMELL......I couldn't believe it. One pee and I was rushing to change her. Awful awful awful. I went back to Fry's as soon as I got home and bought more Comforts, and am just saving the others for dire emergencies.

    They're also marginally better for the environment AND the baby, since they have fewer nasty chemicals in them. All in all, if we're stuck in sposies (which we are now due to DD's severe diaper rash issues that just increased exponentially once she weaned), then I'm really, REALLY glad I found these. Word to the wise.

    Thank you for posting this! I wonder if I can find them in our Kroger Marketplace.

    I'm ashamed to say we are doing sposies right now. My nausea and morning sickness is so bad that I just could not face the poop twice. Spraying was out of the question and washing was going to be tough. I can hardly stand the smell of her clean disposable, forget about it when it has poop in it. I literally change her diaper with my shirt over my nose (which she thinks is quiet funny I have to add). We do have issues with rashes so we occasionally use them to help clear her up but I finally own some CJ's BUTTer so I'm hoping that will help cut down on my need for sposies.

    I don't like sposies but I throw up enough as is. I will definitely look for those! I use Pampers... Don't hate me.

    We use Huggies. Or rather I have a bunch of Huggies size 3 left over from before we switched and I've kept them all. I hope I can make them still work for Aiden with us moving because I know there's no way I can wash diapers with all this travel!

    Nothing wrong with that! I'm using far more sposies than I'd like right now but I try to use cloth when I can and when I can't...well, what can you do? Nothing to feel badly about.
    We don't have those around here or I'd try them As it is I just use whatever is cheapest. Target or Shopko brand, Luvs or Huggies/Pampers with a coupon. The other day I found a BOX of Pampers prints on clearance for $6 so I got those. I'm really not too picky.

    Nothing to feel badly about at all Kayla! We love pampers. We use one at night for him every night, and absolutely whenever we are traveling. He is generally in cloth the rest of the time. He is my third kid, and though we have had a super easy relationship with cloth, I am not puritanical about it any more.

    I am an amazon mom/prime person, and to order a case and have it show up on my doorstep for a fraction of the cost of the store is like magic. Love it.

    With all our stink issues, and then the weird bite/pimple things Beni has had recently, she's been in sposies a lot too. Of course, here in Laos, you can't get any enviro friendly ones... you can get really cheap ones or you can get Pampers when in Thailand. I have mostly been using the Pampers. And with our stink issues, and the fact that we're about to travel for three weeks over the holidays- I am really looking forward to three weeks in sposies. Doing the cloth when pg and having super nose is not the most fun, although, I'm lucky it hasn't made me chuck.

    Good to know! We don't have Kroger around here but just in case I ever am near one...
    I really hate the sposie smell as well. Blech!

    Another option that works really well is GroVia Biosoakers. They're plastic-free & chlorine-free inserts that just stick into whatever covers you're already using. I used them with Softbums covers on a 6 day road trip recently and had no problems at all with leakage or odor (except once, when dh installed it incorrectly and there was a poop-plosion, but that was entirely user error). Supposedly they are also biodegradable and compostable, though I haven't actually tried composting them.

    Where do you get these magical inserts? Somewhere local perhaps? I imagine they'd be far less leaky than sposies. I do not want to deal with leaky sposies while on a 6 hour plane trip, again. Ugh.

    I'm going to have to look into those as an option if my laundromat washing doesn't go so well. Only a little over 24 hours in disposables and DH and I are both cussing them from the smell and the fact that they're leaving red marks on his belly. of course poor kid doesn't have enough of a butt to hold up his pants without cloth. Lol
