My Midwife has a pattern that she shares with her mommas. When she said that I said I considered trying and she said that cloth diapers aren’t a good first time sewing project so that deterred me enough to just look into buying them. lol

My husband wanted to make cloth diapers, but I found Bum Genius 3.0 on ebay for cheaper than it would be for us to make them when you consider time and money.

@Navy_Wife: I found some for $6 a piece on ebay and happened upon some on Craigslist for a little over $5 a piece. It was just waiting and getting lucky on ebay.

My baby is gonna have the cutest diapers on the block! Lol.

Until he poops in them ten times a day for the first two months of life. I hope you make a lot diapers! Seriously, the poop the first two months is ridiculous. We went through 8-10 diapers a day or more just FYI. There was poop everywhere-even on my china cabinet! Surprised It was shocking! lol!

I’m not sure if you are a FB fan of Applecheeks but they posted yesterday that if any WAHMs are intersted in remants of PUL that they have extras they are offering up.  Supposedly you can email amy [at] applecheeks.com to get the details.

@Navy_Wife: I am just worried for you! haha. I guess maybe because for me, I was shocked at the diaper changing- esp if you are going to BF- it was constant. I just remember thinking “Dear Lord, is this all I am going to do for the rest of my life!” I really wished someone had warned me about the poo.

I think the amount of poo just depends on the baby. Our little girl is 6 weeks old and she just has one poo a day. It’s usually a good size poo, but we use flushable liners so you just lift it right out of the diaper and toss it in the toilet.

I know nothing about sewing diapers but I just wanted to say I think it’s awesome that you would make them! We went for the lazy person route and bought bum genius elemental, which is one size and all in one. They were $25 a diaper, but well worth it for us. And I understand about wanting them to be cute, having all the fun colors makes diaper changing so much more fun!
