Ok, I'm back with more questions. We have been cd'ing for about 4 days now. Doing well for the most part and enjoying the prospect of never having to cough up $$ for disposables again.
However, my 2 year old has a sore (I think becuase I waited too long to change him one day when he was poopy). I'm using cloth wipes also, and feel like they are a little rough, rougher than the pampers wipes, that's for sure. Is there anything that I can do to help this sore heal quickly, and ease his discomfort? Normally I would just slap some A&D on him, and be done with it.
Is powder ok to use with c.d.s?
We installed our diaper sprayer, but feel like it becomes slightly difficult when the inner absorbent layer (we use bumgenius aio's, with teh pocket insert) becomes so waterlogged. Then it just sits in the pail. Is that ok? Is there a better way to do this without getting my bathroom floor all wet?
Related to this, do I have to get every piece of poop off of the diapers?
And last question: it seems like there is no detergent in the wash--I use 1/2 of the recommended, like cottonbabies.com says to do...but I don't ever feel like there is enough detergent. Has anyone out there ever felt this way?
THANK YOU SO MUCH! I love being able to use this forum, and I hope that you all are not too bothered by my many questions. I am just trying to get the hang of this whole thing. Soon my questions will stop. Maybe... :) I really do appreciate all the varied responses...
