THANK YOU to everyone who commented on yesterday’s post. While I understand that there isn’t really anything to worry about, I also like to hear people remind me of this. So, Woohoo! I’ve been reminded.
(There’s always a but.)
Today I’m annoyed, mulling, chewing on, thinking about, call it whatever you wish, about diapers. Yes, I know. Diapers.
We cloth diaper. We like cloth diapering for a variety of reasons, but the biggest reason, hands down? Is that without a big cloth-diaper butt, O’s pants fall off of him. He’s that skinny. It makes me feel bad to watch him walk around with his pants falling down when we use disposables.
How can you resist that cute little butt?!?
When we’ve traveled with him in the past, we’ve gone to see family and have had laundry at our disposal. Cloth diapering hasn’t been an issue. This time? Well, it seems we picked a hotel that doesn’t have laundry facilities on the premises.
Now, I’ve read about super hard-core cloth diapering folks washing dipes in hotel bathtubs each night, but I don’t think I want to spend my vacation swishing poopy diapers around in a tub that I will bathe my kid in. We use flushable liners to make poop clean up easier, but the liners aren’t magic and sometimes the poop gets on the diapers. I’m pretty loose about germs, but not being able to wash the tub out after makes even me go, “Ewwwwww.”
So the question becomes, do we care that much about his pants not falling down that we’re willing to either find a laundromat, or wash them in the tub at night?
I’ll bet the answer is no.
Anyone else cloth diaper on vacation? I’d love to hear your solutions if you do.
