|Day 2: Happy birthday to me! |
I got to hang out with my son while my husband took care of the diapers!
We used to use what I thought was the origami fold, but what I found out is actually called the Happy Anteater Fold (how redunkulously cute is that??? Thanks to Jenny of Cloth Diaper Revival). In fact I drilled my husband in how to origami fold until he could do it with his eyes closed (it was hilarious, and in spite of his grumblings, Ganaa had fun too)! Then we would just snappi it on and Muj had himself a snug, absorbent diaper that breathed. It was my go to weekend diaper until the little monster learned how to unfasten the snappi O_o. So we switched to pad folds and covers because I'm terrified of trying to get Mujii to sit still long enough for me to pin both sides of his diaper closed.
However, I saw a really neat idea from a fellow F&HC participant and blogger: Michelle of Grateful Moms of ManyShe has a nifty photo tutorial of how she folds her homemade flats and then center pins them with a single pin...thus reducing the likelihood of poking her kiddo by 50%!!!! Something so simple yet so genius, and I never would have thought of it if I wasn't participating in the F&HC!
