Flats - Day Three...

We did fine today - at least in the area of cloth diapering. Other areas - debatable. In the end, though, I think it was a great day. There were lots of smiles and as I put T Rex to bed he gave me the best kiss and said, "I love you, Mama." And in the end, that's what it's all about.
I received an excellent suggestion on a flat diaper fold. You can see the video here. It is more of a trouble shooting idea. We used it during nap time. I was quite concerned about leaks as we had one on an outing the previous night. I've never had a leak with my pocket diapers on an outing EVER so I was really surprised yesterday. However, I am dedicated to this challenge so we will push forward.

No leaks utilizing the tip with the origami fold. But her bottom was really damp - more so than with the pad fold we have been utilizing. I'll give it a couple more trials to see. Then at least I can say I gave it a try.

Origami flat diaper fold.

Our struggle with this fold is just that our daughter has a really tiny waist and skinny little legs. The baby in the video has a little more surface area for coverage and tying. And yes, I used a pin to secure everything in place.
She loves being my diaper model.

I did manage to not stick our daughter with the pin. However, she did have a day of many other firsts - first split lip, first electric shock, and first whipped cream beater. You can read about her Day of Firsts here.

For now, it is my break time. Time for some crafting and, of course, blogging. But mostly crafting tonight. I cannot wait to show you what fun project I've been working on.

What do you like to do during your precious, well earn free time?

See, using pins was how I used to diaper as a kid when my younger brother was a baby. I would definitely pin someone! She's the cutest diaper model I've ever seen. She looks from the pictures like she will be tall!

Writing and blogging is my activity of choice! But you already knew that:)

I never minded pins - snappis are touch and go for me though. Bebe sister is a cute diaper model - you can see she is SO pleased with herself! :) Now A. I can BARELY get to stand still to get a non-blurry shot! :)
In my precious free time. Um... I will admit that I mostly spend it all on my blog. I am working to change that as well! :)
