Elijah the Model
So, we have been successfully cloth diapering Elijah for about two weeks now. I have to admit that I am quite proud of myself and that I have kept up with it. It actually is not too bad. Although, the other day, after I was done with the diaper load of laundry, Elijah poops. Mmm, boy. I usually only do diapers every other day, so I thought great, what do I do with this? Well, I rinsed it out a little bit, and thought, well, one poopy diaper can wait til the next load. But, what does the boy do? He poops the next diaper as well! This coming from the boy who poops every 4-6 days! (which by the way is normal for a baby. Anywhere from 1-2 times a day, to 1-2 times a week is normal…go figure).
Anyway. Elijah’s cloth diapers are homemade by my mom and I and, well, a little bulkier than a professional cloth diaper. So, the poor boy looks a little stuffed in the diaper area. (infact, some of his pants barely fit over his diaper!) But, as bottom heavy as the boy looks, we joke and say he is preparing to be an underwear model.
