Diaper Junction Giveaway

Diaper Junction seems to always have good deals on cloth diapers and supplies. What I really like about them is the wealth of information I’ve found on their site. It doesn’t hurt that they do weekly giveaways, which is more than I can say about most suppliers. Check out this week’s giveaway and try to win yourself a Swaddlebees Capri Cloth Diaper Cover and Insert two pack:

Fussy baby

Well, it’s been a few days since I’ve posted. Nothing eventful has happened. The baby’s been his usual adorable but clingy self. Right now, he’s quite fussy. I’m looking forward to another month or two when he’s finally big enough to enjoy his walker and Jumperoo. I put him in the walker today, and he immediately did a face plant in the hard plastic toy bar at the front of the walker. Oops. That kid has a big, heavy head. The Jumperoo seems to work better for him, but he’s still too small to reach some of the toys and ends up extremely frustrated. Last night we bought the play tray for the Boppy, hoping that would keep him from falling forward. I don’t know why he does this, but every time I put him in the Boppy, he would keep leaning forward until he was practically out of it. I don’t know if he was going after his toes or what. So I tried with the play tray today, and he immediately started screaming. Nothing is a satisfactory substitute for mommy’s arms, apparently.  

I discovered yesterday that our local Walmart is one of the few select stores that carries Mabu baby diapers. They’re basically an all-in-two cloth diaper. For around 30 bucks (if I remember correctly), you get two diapers, two washable inserts, two disposable inserts, and a few liners. Assuming they are good quality (and I have to check some more reviews), that’s a very good price for all-in-twos. Right now, I’m surfing on Amazon for a wet diaper pail liner. The baby’s fussing though, so we’ll see how that goes. He’s tired, but not sleeping.

Prefold try #2

I tried the jelly roll. In defense of the jelly roll…I don’t think I did it right. I also am not sure these diapers fit my son properly. He’s over 12 pounds and from some of the reviews I’ve read, that seems to be close to the largest size these OsoCozy infant prefolds can handle. If I can’t get them to work, I’m cutting them up and using them as cloth wipes.

That is all.
