Oh my goodness.
So my friend Carli from Livin the Mom Life asked me a question on my last post about the cloth diapers I use. She had a question about a diaper review and give away she has coming up. SO I did some searching and found out I lied to you. I don’t actually have any AIO (once again this means All In One) diapers. I didn’t even know the proper definition of a AIO diaper. I have pocket diapers by Kawaii. They don’t even make AIO diapers that I could find, and I did search that out. I also edited the previous post so it has the correct information.
So before you stop reading my blog and decide you will never trust a word I say again, I apologize and promise that in the future I will do better research. For some reason I have thought this whole year that I have had these diapers that they are AIO.
The proper definition of a AIO diaper is:
Also known as AIO’s, all-in-ones are fitted diapers that have an outer waterproof layer. Often they have fewer absorbent layers than their counterparts. These diapers are ideal for out of home use. They are not practical for daily use since frequent washing and drying reduces the effectiveness of the waterproof outer layer. This definition was taken from here.
AIO diapers have a liner permanently attached to them, either in the front or in the back.
Pocket diapers, which I do have :-), are the outer waterproof layer with a fleece lining. There is either an opening in the front or the back, on the inside of the diaper, where you stuff a insert in.
At the moment I have mostly microfiber inserts. They work pretty well except in the Bumkins diaper covers that I have. If I use the microfiber inserts in these. However I just bought two hemp inserts and they work much better in the Bumkins covers.
I also recently purchased this starter/trial kit and the prefolds are awesome!! They hold a lot of moisture but still feel only slightly wet.
I will definitely be getting more prefolds and hemp inserts. Also on my to do list is finding some wool sweaters at Goodwill and attempting to make some soakers like this but without that price tag.
In other news there has been lots of crying at our house lately because Cameron decided that standing is better than sitting or scooting. Needless to say many bumps and bruises have been appearing the last few days.
He isn’t eating anything yet, it doesn’t matter what it is he gags on it. I have found two things that he seems to like the taste of and they are homemade broth and avacado. He also likes to knaw on raw carrots and slightly cooked green beans.
Cameron is still nursing between two an three times a night and at least five times during the day, so he is getting all the real nutrition he needs. He has rolls all over the place. 🙂 Hopefully he will sleep through the night before Seth-boy who didn’t sleep through consistently until eighteen months. We’ll see…I don’t regret one night of getting up with Seth and I’m sure I won’t with Cameron either.
