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)!
