Time to Spice it Up!

When you've been doing the same dirty chore the same way for a very long time it obviously get's old. The only thing you can do is try something a little bit different, a little crazy, to spice things up. It's time to break the monotony for my sanity and my husband sake.

My oldest daughter is soon turning 6. Although it's very monumental all I can think about is the fact that I've been changing diapers for 6 very long years. Don't get me wrong, my daughter is potty trained. I've just had kids so close together that I've always had one in diapers. I've decided it's time to spice things up.

On a crazy internet whim, I bought a set of gDiapers, liners and flushable liners. I felt these were the best choice for myself because I just can't keep up with laundry so I knew I couldn't do cloth diapers.

I just got my huge box of gDiapers yesterday. I have to say, they are mighty cute. My daughter's hiney looks darn cute in cloth diapers. Especially the pink frilly ones. I couldn't resist. They seem breathable and comfy on her too.

gDipers are a "hybrid" diaper which means they aren't quite cloth and aren't quite disposable. They are cloth outer diapers with a flushable liner. So far, pretty good. I did clog the toilet once today with a wet diaper. I do like the fact that I can flush the dirty diapers. No more stinky Diaper Genie. No more dogs scoring a fresh treat. Sorry, but "it" happens.

Let's hope this is the little change I need. I hope this tiny amount of change gets me through the next two years I have left of diaper changing hell.

Love your blog! I have a friend who used the gDiapers and she loved them, except she said she had to flush a lot to get it all to go down the toilet! Hope you like them!

Randomly stumbled across your blog...

I can't imagine changing diapers for 6 years! I did it as a nanny for two and swore I would rather adopt potty-trained children than bear my own and ever deal with that again, mostly because of the smell of the Diaper Genie. These new hybrid diapers sound intriguing, though...

I look forward to reading the rest of your blog.

So how is the gdiapers working for you? I hate laundry too, but strangely I don't seem to mind washing my son's cloth diapers. Maybe its because its still new to us. Off to throw in another load of laundry!
