making the switch


So, what have I gotten myself into???????

In the interest of potty training, I have made the switch to cloth diapers for the boys. I must admit this is an intimidating process for me but so far so good. With the inspiration of many great moms out there, i.e., Shelley, Sally, Amy, Erin and many more - I decided to give it a whirl. I decided to try the Kissaluvs diapers in the interest of keeping the boys wet. I know that sounds weird but I want AJ to at least feel when he is wet and know what peeing is. Unfortunately they run a little small so I had to return the ones that I haven't washed and am waiting for a different type to arrive since the Kissaluvs don't do any bigger. In the meantime, these are working good so far. AJ is funny because he keeps saying they are "squishy". Miraculously, this morning he went straight into the potty to pee and poop before school and decided he wanted to wear his training pants to school as well, so maybe this switch will help him after all. Jacob doesn't seem to really notice a difference - or at least he is not expressing it. I am so excited because the covers I am using right now, Bummis, come in the cute pattern of frogs and for those of you that know me - I LOVE frogs! I can say I now understand why people get addicted to different diapers - they are all so cute and let me tell you the boys little bottoms look so cute when they have these one because they are big and fluffy.
I will let you know later on down the road how things are going and what our progress has been. Wish me luck!

If you are thinking about cloth diapering or making the switch, please check out Shelley's new site - CuddleBugBums. She has patterns and all of the materials needed to make your own as well as some premade ones.

You rock! I know you will get the hang of it in no time, and wonder why you didn't do it earlier!

Way to go A.J.! Squishy pants are no fun!
