Cloth diapering has gone from a duty (pardon the pun) to a hobby. I absolutely love seeing these adorable diapers on my little bean. And just so much fun to coordinate with her clothes.
Bebe Sister is recovering nicely from a bout of pneumonia. Because of the seriousness of her illness, I opted to have her take antibiotics. They have given her massive diarrhea - not surprising. We've been trying to balance with some more constipating foods but she is still producing some huge diapers upon waking from nap time.
Let me tell you how grateful I am that we've had our diapers - they hold in EVERYTHING. We would have blow-out after blow-out if we were in disposables, I am certain. And - no rash. Let me say that again...NO RASH. I've never seen a child with this much diarrhea not get a rash. Again - love these diapers. I know what you're thinking - yikes, those sound like disgusting diapers to clean. Two words for you - diaper sprayer. Cleans everything off and into the toilet before they go into the wet bag for keeping until laundry time.
Additionally, we haven't been able to leave the house much. With that being said, we would have had to make a special trip to the store just to buy diapers. Yes, you know what I'm talking about - that last minute, oh my gosh I am down to one last diaper, run to the store before it's dirty. Not for us. Not since making the switch over a year ago. And let me tell you this has been nice with the kids being sick and not being able to take them to the store. I just run the wash and we have more diapers. Although, a trip to the store might have made ME feel better allowing a break from the three C's - crying, coughing, and clinging.
So, there might be yucky diarrhea from the antibiotics, but diaper changing time is still a pleasure. Sometimes just putting on a diaper with a cute print or just the right shade of pink puts a smile on my face despite the frowns I've been sporting seeing my little ones with the C's.
How do you cheer up or maintain your sanity when your loved ones are feeling ill?
