While I was pregnant hubby and I decided we wanted to cloth diaper our son. We attended a class and looked at all our options. Made our selection and went back to get them when he was around 2 months old and hit the 8 pound mark.
It has been one the best things for us. Yes it’s more laundry and I have to scrape poop off diapers, yep I said it. Note ** don’t use the spatula in our downstairs bathroom, it’s the poop spatula. P rarely has diaper rash and it’s become our normal. Here is a great blog post about cloth diaper options.
So what do we do with all the diapers when they are wet or dirty. Put them in a bag. I hate using plastic, it makes my skin crawl. During my pregnancy I picked up laminated cotton to use for a food mat when P got older, but it’s going towards wet bags now.
I have NEVER sewn a zipper into anything. Zippers scare me and the thought of adding them into something makes so nervous. Last week I bought a zipper and decided I wanted to give it a try. Well this is the result…
What a mess! Good thing it’s just staying at home. I want something I will be proud to keep in the diaper bag and send to daycare. I’m off to try again and actually use a tutorial this time to help me. Craftbuds has what looks to be an easy tutorial for making a zippered bag.
I could rip all the stitches out and start again…probably not.
