That leaves us with only two in cloth. The girls do wear disposables to church and doctor’s appointments. The wet bag concept is simply too heavy & stinky with two babies, especially when we are out as much as eight hours out on Sundays. We go through approximately one pack of size 1 Target diapers every six weeks or so.
We use prefolds during the day and fitteds overnight. My favorite prefolds are Nicki’s Diapers, and my favorite fitteds are still (used) Goodmamas. We’re wearing those things to shreds at this point, so they’ve certainly returned their investment. The prefolds I bought used, too. They’re still in like-new condition after a year on twins. The girls occasionally make it through the night dry, but they’re still making wet diapers every few hours during the day. And praise the Lord for our diaper sprayer! We recently had to replace the trigger, but now it’s good as new.
We aren’t having the ammonia issues like we did with Ames around this time. I’ve recently started using Bac-Out on diapers after rinsing, and they sit in a trash can (lined with Wahmies) with a swinging lid in the girls’ room. No odor yet! I’m keeping my fingers crossed and staying on top of my wash routine, which we do every two or three days. Occasionally, I throw a towel in, to get the water level up a bit on my HE machine. I do a cold wash without soap, and then a hot wash/extra rinse with EcoNuts. I still hang all of my covers and dry the diapers on extra low for as long as possible. I’m (still) interested in trying wool dryer balls, as I hear it softens up fabrics and cuts down on drying time. I just haven’t gotten around to it yet. I’ve also heard tennis balls work for that, too.
Are you cloth diapering? What about more than one baby? How’s it going?
