So I just wanted to say I am SO excited - I think I'm probably the first person in the world to get so excited about diapers but hey who cares right? haha.
First - does anyone have any tips to give me since I am new to this??? Is there anything allready in my house I could use to wash the diapers that wont cause smelly build up or repelling??
I got Ecopipo and Kawaii to try first because I got such a GREAT deal on them brand new. $19 for 2 diapers and shipping was included! (It never hurts to talk someone down in price hehe) So yea I know most of you / ok all of you are probably wondering "why only two?" and "how is she going to get by with only two?" First off, this is just kind of a trial and error learning experience and I didn't want to go put $200 or even $100 into diapers I wasn't going to use. Plus I plan on making my own in the near future, I just need to learn how to sew HAHA. I was so anxious to get them I almost forgot that I cant wash them in regular laundry detergent so I have to wait till hubby gets home and try and talk him into getting new laundry detergent :D
SO. I have tried them both out so far today and I Like the Ecopipo one the best because it is a velcro (one size)- it has a better fit I think for my baby and I cant seem to figure out all those snaps on the other. It's too tight or too loose if I do it evenly on both sides so to get the fit right I have to do it a bit crooked and one leg is then bigger than the other.... Not so good. My little girl has some chunky thighs and I think the elastic is great on both brands. The inside of the diapers I like the Kawaii diaper best- it just seems like it might keep her a little more dry. If you could figure out the snaps itd be great. Maybe if they could combine these diapers haha.
anyways thats it. Any tips?
