It's been a little over a month and I've got a better handle on the change that is coming to our family.
Scary? Sort of.
I was chatting with Deuces Wild & An Ace in the Hole about...wait for it.....poop. Oh, the conversations of moms!
Her: if the babies are breastfed then their poop is water soluble and you don't even have to touch it - just stick it in the wash! but toddler poop- ewww! totally different story!
Me: well, you haven't seen 6 year old poop. just sayin' he lives on chocolate milk and bananas if you can imagine that.
Her: Ewww! no...toddler poop looks like chocolate peanut butter...butt smells WAY worse!
Me: I'm okay until it gets greenish and looks like floam
The reason this topic came up was not because one of us was reading Everyone Poops to our children. It came up because I'm trying to decide between cloth and disposable diapers. Little Man and Tween Girl both wore disposable. Honestly, because I gave it no thought. This time, with two, and the factor of cost and the environment, I'm thinking about it.
Pros to Cloth Diapers -
- Saves Money
- Better for the Environment
- More comfortable for the babies....? Is it? I'm really asking, those that have used both, did your baby seem to notice the difference?
- More Laundry - the most evil task in a household. IMO.
