Overnight Cloth Diapers for the Extreme Heavy Wetter

I have experimented with a variety of methods and systems for overnight cloth diapers.  Overnight cloth diapers with Eudora have never been a problem; she’s such a light wetter that it’s like she pees glitter or something.  With Norton?  Well, let’s just say that I spent a lot of time washing sheets in the morning.  I’d gone through a multitude of overnight cloth diapers with him.

(Stash) Size Doesn’t Matter

Sometimes, people share that they have size envy… particularly when it comes to stash sizes.  Sure, some of us do have a ridiculous stash size.  But you know what?  There’s always that idea that size matters.  Stash size matters, car size matters, house size matters… and since this is a family friendly blog, I’ll leave any other “size matters” thoughts alone.

Best Bottom Diapers, It’s All Your Fault

Dear Best Bottom Diapers,

In August 2012, you came onto my radar.  Heather over at The Parenting Patch was raving about Best Bottom Diapers and had decided that they would be the only cloth diaper she ever owned.  Cozy Bums Diapers, my “dealer” (also known as “the local cloth diaper store with one of the best selections in Canada”) started carrying Best Bottom Diapers.  That they were in Cozy Bums meant that they had to be good because Kerri doesn’t have any products that she doesn’t believe in.

At first, I dismissed Best Bottom Diapers.  I didn’t need them.  I had plenty of cloth diapers.  I was starting to ponder the idea of having a cloth diaper stash that was just too big because I had around 60 diapers for having two kids in cloth.  Plus, something about the label made me think of camo, and I hate camo.

Then the Cookie Monster print came out.  Since at that time, Norton was obsessed with anything and everything Sesame Street, I pre-ordered it from Cozy Bums.  And then there was a family reunion.  My daughter was wearing a purple dress and my husband gave me the go ahead to get a new diaper.  I bought the Best Bottom diaper in Wild Berry.  (At one point in time, when you googled for Best Bottom Wild Berry, this image of daughter modeling that diaper was the first image in a Google Image Search.)

And then?  Well, then I went nuts.  My cloth diaper addiction was in full force.  And this meme?  Well, it became my life.

Dear Best Bottom Diapers, It's All Your Fault (Cloth Diaper Addicts)

For some, this is a silly joke. For me, this became a way of life after buying my first Best Bottom diaper.

And now I must accept the truth: my cloth diaper stash is completely out of control.  And Best Bottom Diapers, because you tempted me with the Cookie Monster (by the way, I’m feeling pretty cheated because there were never any Best Bottom diapers in Elmo, Oscar, or Big Bird), it’s totally your fault.

It’s Heather’s fault, too.  I’m a tiny bit competitive sometimes, and when she announced that her Best Bottom diapers collection was complete, I decided that I could do that, too.  And I did.  I now have every single Best Bottom shell ever made in snaps… except for camo, because (as mentioned above) I hate camo and it’s not allowed in my house.

Okay, sure, I can take some of the credit.  I decided that it was really fun and cute and far more fun to dress my daughter when she had a plethora of diapers to match her outfits.  But you, Best Bottom Diapers, reminded me of how much fun it was to start.  And this is what my Best Bottom stash looks like right now.  I think.  I may have forgotten one or two.

Dear Best Bottom Diapers, It's All Your Fault (Cloth Diaper Addicts)

I’m not sure if I should thank you or blame you. 😉

Have you ever collected a particular brand of cloth diaper?  What kind of diaper was it?

*Edit: I forgot Spearmint.  Oops.  I DO have too many Best Bottom diapers.

Daily Cute Fluffy Bum – Tadpole Jones

Daily Cute Fluffy Bum - Tadpole Jones (Cloth Diaper Addicts)Little Westin looked GORGEOUS for his cake smash photos!  He’s wearing a custom made The Hungry Caterpillar diaper from Tadpole Jones Diaper Supply.  Tadpole Jones is an awesome Canadian WAHM diaper that only does custom diapers to order.  (Not only are her diapers awesome; she’s personally awesome.  She’s my neighbor and puts up with my shenanigans.  Everyone should have a Tadpole Jones Diaper Supply fluff just so they can have a diaper as awesome as she is.  Yes, I’m biased.)  The photography was done by Richard Bruce, a local cloth diapering dad!
