Her diapers are awesome :).. ive ordered packman/dr seuss from her before.. my only disappointment was her OSFM sized really small compared to my alvas & LO couldnt fit them.



I was so sad lol!

Im sorry to intrude upon any conversations, but I am hoping to get some quick, easy, and total NEWB advice on CDing.
My daughter is a big 8 month old who for the last 3 months has been having a bad diaper rash. It doesnt look like yeast or anything related to a 'typical' rash. I think she is allergic or sensitive to the elastic in the disposables. So I need some advice on where to start. Obviously I dont want to spend 1000s on 100 diapers, when Im not sure if this will solve her problem.
*What is a relatively cheap complete diaper?
*What is a PUL?
*Are all water-proof?
*How many would be 'ideal' to start with? She has 5-6 diapers a day, not a heavy wetter, but a massive pooper. Being breastfed, she poops a large, runny amount.
*What soap do you use?
*Are co-ops a good idea?



Im sorry for all of the questions...I'm completely new, and your previous intro pages to the CD Rock b***hes is just TOO much information to comprehend.

Check out the 1st page - the OP.



It has majority of the info you want :)



to answer your questions without info overload..



1. prefolds & covers are probably the cheapest option.
2. PUL is a waterproof backed fabric - diaper covers, pockets, aio, a12 have that to stop the diaper leaking out onto clothes
3. not all are waterproof, fitteds/prefolds you need a cover for.
4. depends how often you want to wash .. if you wash every 2 days you'll need 12 diapers plus about 3 or so for wash time.
5. planet ark aware - i know a lot use country save.
4. i dont do co-ops.. if something goes wrong with the diaper i dont think they have to rectify the issue like a manufacturer/WAHM most likely would.

I had one from her a looong time ago. Really well made but the pocket was too narrow. The insert it came with didn't even fit in, lol.
Based on what some others have said she's widened that but I've been too broke to try a new one, hehe.

Thank you so much..I went back to the first page of this one (vol 4) and my head started swimming. I talked to a few friends and think Im going to start slow, with 5 diapers, 10 inserts, snaps, aio. Does that sound like a good place to start?

Youre welcome!



To be honest, i'd go with either fitteds & covers, pockets, or prefolds laid in a cover :)



Prefolds/trifolds + a few covers would be your cheapest option, you can wipe out covers & re use if they arent soiled so you dont need lots - theyre also not high maintenance to wash :) - if you put a microfleece liner in they'll stay dry against bubs skin too.



Fitteds + covers are what ive heard majority of people love :).. you dont always need to use a cover if you change fairly often. (ive got a bunch of these ordered to try)



Pockets are great because you can customise absorbency and come apart for thorough washing/quick drying.



Maybe grab a couple of each & see what you like best before getting tons.



I love pockets, but i honestly think im going to love fitteds also..



AIO to me is a bad idea.. i like quick drying diapers without absorbency sewn in so they wash cleaner & dry quicker.

Her work is beautiful. They're my fave. Plus she's really sweet too. But I haven't used the OS ones yet but the NB ones are smaller than the others I have. But I had a small baby so it works. But I know I won't get as much use out of them. She added preemie snaps for me but my preemie didn't end up being preemie size haha



Eta: idk about the pocket dipe issues cause I use ai2s. But the a12 haven't had a problem that I've noticed.

I had the same issue, except i ordered mine without inserts & couldnt fit my alva or doopsy inserts in! :?



I squashed one in & it bunched up, and was too long for the pocket.



So disappointed.



Her quality/sewing was impeccable though & her cute little NB diapers look great.

DH & i have decided to have more kiddos... i thought i was done but clearly not haha!!



Ive been eying her NB diapers up :D



I usually have 6lb babes so i think they'll fit great because i found her sizing on the smaller side.



So far i love hers & squishy butts re: quality, but squishys sizing is better for my big bubs once theyre not NB :)
