Cloth Diapers

Due to changes to our local waste collection service I am changing to cloth at home - for better or worse! - and keeping disposables for travel and sleepovers. Trying a variety of gauze, terry, and cloth baby diapers [tax free!]; and adult coconut-fibre inserts. Any advice on changing from dispo to cloth ? welcome!

I believe with baby cloth and flannel diapers you have done s good choice.
Maybe consider bamboo diapers?

By coconut I meant bamboo [crazy!] - and have 2 adult insert s from Amazon/China on trial now.
large adult diapers with pins leave you like a Sumo wrestler round the waist and are very pricey too.
Thanks for speedy reply!

Currently succeeding with Mom's original system: double-diapering.
Two terry towelling diapers with high-waist rubber pants is working.

Glad to hear your mom's system is working. I always found that mom's know best and have the best solutions when it comes to subjects like diapering. You can never go wrong double-diapering with cloth and plastic pants!

Have to agree with TaylorBW. Cloth at night may not be as popular anymore, but it is definitely a tried and true system.

I'm using cloth for night and day for my daughters and they do well.

I alternate between disposable and cloth. First I scoured ebay and amozon looking for a cotton pullup and found this company called Baby pants. They make a heavy garment like the old gerber training pants in two thickness ranges. I go with the thicker version. Those with plastic pants work fine for most daytime issues, but I needed something more absorbant for nights. I wanted to get a prefold diaper to augment the cotton pullups, but they're so expensive. So, I took a gamble and tried my hand at sewing. I picked up 4 yards of birdseye cotton and started sewing my first cotton diaper. I find that the pullup, the prefold and plastic pants together, will handle almost anything all night long.

Trying to make your own diaper is a good idea. I also have a friend who tailors the onesies and some special diapers for my girls. Despite their special thickness they fit very well because they are custom made.

    Back to School

    6
    Over the summer, we had made great strides with our daughter who had some medical issues, but everything had been cleared up. Accidents during the day were non-existent and even bedwetting had been minimized to once or twice a week at most.We've been back to school now for just under a month and I'm at a loss with my daughter. We are back to nightly bed wetting and she has had accidents at school...

    College with Incontinence

    I am about to return to college. I have been losing more and more control over my bladder. I've been having occasional leaks in the daytime and wetting heavily at night. I was wondering if anybody else dealt with incontinence in college or has any tips or advice with how to manage my condition?
