I’m all about the cloth diapers. A lot has changed since the times when I was proud of myself for using cloth diapers for thirty-six consecutive hours. I haven’t bought disposable diapers for Eudora since she was in size 1. And I had so many of those left that I sold them when she outgrew them.
However, we’ve been coping with a diaper rash. She’s got acidic teething poops, which caused a rash that I couldn’t get to settle down (largely due to the increased frequency of those acidic teething poops). As is known to happen, that rash became yeasty, so I gave in. I put a sposie on her for overnight so that I could slather her bum with some anti-fungal cream and a layer of Boudreaux’s Butt Paste. When I got her out of bed this morning, I found something that I have never found when using cloth diapers on her overnight: a wet bed.
She’s not a heavy wetter by any stretch of the imagination. A lot of people who use cloth only part time use disposable diapers at night. It’s not like I’m a dolt who doesn’t know how to put on disposable diapers. They haven’t changed that much in the twenty-six years since my first nephew (and the first baby that I’d ever changed) was born.
In light of this rare occurence of overnight diaper failure in Eudora’s bed, I can only come to one conclusion: disposable diapers suck. I have no further plans of ever using them again. Instead, I’m going to have to make a trip out to the fabric store to buy some fleece to make liners. (My local diaper store is out of microfleece liners right now, largely because they are so awesome.)
Have you ever had issues with disposable diapers failing where your cloth diapers excel?
