Snaps. I have Velcro newborn diapers and they're always stuck together in the wash, plus it stick to other diapers and inserts, some of my newborn diapers have pilling on the pul from the Velcro greeting stuck to it

July were going on a 3 week camping trip in Yellowstone. What would be that easiest cloth to bring? I was thinking covers and flats. Where is the best place to get toddler size flats?

Oh its a wool cover though, so you hand wash it gently & it only needs washing/lanolizing every 3 weeksish.



I've heard you can ruin the wool or pull the snap off if you tug on the snaps too hard :?

I don't know lol. It's probably the whole talk of camping. Just the thought of camping makes me anxious. I don't do camping. Unless it's in cabins, with modern appliances and air and heat and such. So, that's not really camping anyway.

Exactly. I haven't went legit camping in years. Like, 10 years lol. And last time I went, it started raining and I ended up in the car with my mom bitching about how I wasn't able to "rough it." Like it was somehow supposed to hurt my feelings lol. It was raining. ANd she wanted me to sleep outside. Um.....no.

You said what I was thinking lol even though that seems ironic to use disposables when you're supposed to be getting closer to nature lol. I'm not against disposables all together, we still keep them in the house, dd uses them at night and for days like yesterday when she had terrible diarrhea all day and got such bad diaper rash that she could hardly walk and was screaming in pain... I have no idea what was up with her poor little bum :(




On a brighter note, one of my invites ordered from the c coop! Woo!

That's how I do laundry sometimes! Plus that's how I've prepped my prefolds. Its not so bad. But i'd bring a good few it I were you because depending on how the weather is, it might take awhile for them to dry.

Lol I loved camping. Even when rain came through my tent. I set up a hammock under some trees, made soup in a cast iron pot over the fire, washed my clothes in a stream...the whole 9 yards. It was very peaceful :D
