Adventures in Diapering


This letter may seem boring but it may help you when you have my grandchildren (although by that point, they will have some weird, new fangled thing).  When you were born, we used Pampers Swaddlers because they were soft and absorbent. Once you moved up to size 2, we changed you to the more economical choice, Pampers Baby Dry. I don't like them. The hold your poopy in just fine but they aren't soft. Yesterday, I switched you to size 3 Pampers Cruisers (holy crap I have a cruiser now!) and I really like them. They are soft and the bigger size was definetely needed as you are continuing to grow like a weed.

Your diaper rash isn't nearly as bad as it has been but I decided to research "organic" diapers. The information out there for these types of diapers is SO misleading. 7th generation and other natural diapers aren't natural at all! They still use the same super absorbent polymer (the gel balls) that regular diapers use and they even dye their diapers so they look natural. The only natural diaper brand is called Tushies and they can only be ordered online (of course, there is always cloth).

Don't know if this info will ever mean anything to you but I wanted to let you know that I got your back (ok, that wasn't that funny)!

Your crazy Mom


  1. Congrats on your first born! He's adorable! We've done all the diapers as well. I even took a 15 month stint in cloth with my first. I loved them but for some reason they gave Nicholas, my first, a bad rash so I eventually moved back to the good ol' standbys. Thanks for stopping by and visiting my blog. Have a great evening!

  2. Just dropping by from Lady Bloggers Society! I was a teacher (before staying home after last year) and a new mommy. My lil' one is 9 months old and I can't believe how quickly time goes by. Love that you said "I got your back.." too cute!
    Stop by and say hi when you can.

  3. Did you do your blog makeover or did you have someone do it? Its adorable!
