What a cute naked bunch of cats and babies!

First, I'm glad that you're back. I've missed you, D.W., and Chins. As for the diapering, that's very cool that you were able to find so many workable options.

I crave cloth diapering 411. Thank you thank you thank you. Good to know about the wool and the hemp. I heard so much about the wool covers but felt a little funny. Now with your recommendation I'm adding those to The List.

I'm happy his tushie is all eco-friendly!

I did wool diaper covers (Nikkys, they resemble Wallypop Woolie Wraps) for both of my babies and loved them. I really liked that they were breathable and didn't need to be washed. Baby poop did stain them, but heck, they're diaper covers!

For a while I also used homemade wipes made from cotton flannel cut to size. It was easy because I could recycle old cloth, put them in the hamper with the diapers, and didn't have to worry about the cost or chemical ingredients of purchased wipes.

I am completely jealous of your fat little man! My kids were never sausages like that.

Jason here form gDiapers. We got in to them as cloth diaper users back in Australia. So we used cloth inserts with the little g pants. Some cool colours online if you want to check them out. Many Aussie cloth customers use the flushable inserts for extra absorbency at a night. If you check out www.flushability.com we have about 800 or so Mum and Dads who use gDiapers on a Yahoo User group.

Happy parenting.

Cheers

Jason: I'm giving you a pass on my "no ads in the comments" policy, because you make awesome diapers. :)

So I will play along -- gDiapers are great! We used them as our "out and about" diapers when Chins was smaller, until he outgrew them. We often used them with prefolds instead of the flushable liners, because I must admit I never quite got the hang of it (but then again I don't get the hang of a lot of things), but I urge new parents to give them a try.

Good to hear from you, Jason!

Ah! the great Reusable V Disposable debate. We had both of ours in traditional cotton toweling nappies* for the first few months (big safety pins - the whole works) then moved onto some sort of re-washable plastic coated jobbies (Kushies?) which were great until they started running around and we had leakage. Be prepared to have this whole debate again when Chins gets mobile. The traditional cotton nappies are still in use around the house doing a variety of other jobs.

First of all, Chins is so freaking CUTE! Lordy, that's a cute baby.

I am expecting baby #4 (after a 10 year hiatus) and I plan to use cloth again. People are always surprised when I tell them how much easier I find cloth to use. I, too, am too lazy to deal with bags and bags full of nasty, filthy, plastic diapers that need to go to the landfill.

I love wool covers. My favorites were the Biobottoms brand, before they went out of business. But these days, lots of folks make a good wool cover.

My favorite diapers are snugglebottoms (don't cloth diapers have embarrasingly puerile names?) wihich you can order at Baby Bunza online, and Kissaluvs. For all in ones cloth diapers (requiring no covers, I like the BumGenius ones and Bumkins.

Best cloth diapering site, in my opinion, is www.wildflowerdiapers.com.

dear wife

We love our Bum Genius. Unfourtunately the Bumkins did not fit the chub-a-lubs legs, they left nasty red marks. I am having so much fun trying out all the many options out there, it is amazing the variety. I will have to check out that site.

I have nothing to say, really, about diapering options. Except that I couldnt wear plastic diapers, but that's really a lot to know about an internet stranger. hehehe.

But CHINS!! OMG he is so squooshy! Must nibble his arms!

andrea

Chins is adorable, that's a given. I'm also quite taken with the feline ham in the background. So fluffy and cute!

We are loving our Sandies Organic snap diapers topped with hand knit (by me!) wool soakers, shorts and pants. Your baby is seriously cute!
