First, I’m sick & tired of the ammonia. It only affects Ames’s diapers, and it’s random.

I’m tempted to switch to disposables for him, since he’s hopefully potty-training in the next little bit. But I figure, we made it this far… cloth should still work for us. It’s not a hassle, and we already do it for the sisters. Help!
