About a month or two ago, I decided we needed a better system for changing dipes.  We had been using the changing table in #2’s room, but figured that wouldn’t work out once #2 arrived.  Soooo, I got the idea of setting things up in the bathroom . . .best idea ever.  Here are a few pics.

The top shelf is for #2’s dipes and the bottom is for NOR.  All of the wet bags are velcroed to the bottom of the bottom shelf . . . the snappi’s and ointment are readily available as are the changing pads.

Everything is so close . . . after rinsing out a poopy dipe, I just dump it in the diaper pail.  Or after changing a pee pee dipe, the diaper pail is just at hand.  And the wipes and wipe solution are a stones throw away.  It’s super convenient and I can’t believe I didn’t think of this idea sooner!

The best diaper inserts September 7, 2008

My project this morning was to discover which material produced the most absorbent inserts for our pocket dipes.  (Apparently, this seals my entry into nerddom! I always knew I was a music nerd, but who know I was a science nerd, too!)

We’ve been using several different fabrics:

1)  old cut up t-shirts, with each insert being 4 layers sewn together.

2)  this miracle cloth thing that is supposed to be used for washing cars or something, supposed to be really absorbent, each insert is just one layer.
