I love cloth diapers. Last summer we switched our middle son over to cloth completely, and my oldest uses them part time. Well, used to… since he is potty trained FINALLY!
So when it came to diapering our daughter, I really wanted to go the cloth route also. I got her a full stash of AppleCheeks cloth diapers, and a couple other kinds here and there. I think all total she has 2 FuzziBunz and 2 Charlie Bananas also. Besides the point…
Seeing as she was less than 6 pounds when she was born, she has been a little small for the cloth diapers we have. When she hit the 7 pound mark, which is the size one set of the diapers starts at, I figured she would fit right into them. Ha! Not so much!
So we did a little photo shoot with the diapers and it actually was pretty comical.
Addie & Cloth size 1 of 6Not very happy
Calming down… slightly 2 of 6The diaper is basically she size of her
And a little bit more calm… 3 of 6Another size example
Not for long! 4 of 6And cue the hysterics!
AppleCheeks 5 of 6A butt view
Does this thing fit? 6 of 6And how she looks giant with it on...
Needless to say, they don’t fit all that well… and we will be waiting another couple weeks till we switch her over fully from the current disposables we are using.
I wasn’t planning on having her in pampers this long, but then again… I wasn’t really planning on having a tiny little munchkin either!
