For those of you who don't know (meaning most of you), we have been using cloth diapers on Scoop. No, I'm not crazy. Well maybe a little, but we are using them. We decided to use them, frankly, because they are cheaper. I'm all about cheap these days.
They aren't as bad as I thought they would be. I was prepared for some nasty, nasty clean ups but it hasn't been anything I couldn't handle. That includes when she had antibiotics for double ear infections. I confess, I put her in disposables at night. This kid pees like crazy in the night and I hate waking up at 3 am to soaking wet baby and bedding. They are kind of cute too. For some bizarre reason I already have a picture of them loaded in the computer. Perhaps I knew I would miss you too much to stay away? Take a look...
Enter the mother's nemesis: diaper rash.
A couple of weeks ago she had a terrible rash, we're talking cherry red. I hadn't changed detergent or soap or let her sit in a dirty diaper too long, so I chalked it up to teething. I put her in disposables for a few days and it cleared up. Back to the cloth. Within one day the rash was back. It looks like my cheap alternative to disposables is no longer an option.
Here's the question: Can I ask family members to give Scoop a nice package of Luvs for Christmas? It's not like she knows what presents are. I'll give her an empty box and some crumpled wrapping paper and she'll be thrilled. Or am I being too cheap? What do you think?
