Two hour Travels: CDC III


Dirty Diaper Laundry is sponsoring the III Diaper Carnival and this one is all about Traveling with Cloth Diapers. I have only been cloth diapering for about six months now and I thought I would share the many stories I have. You see, my family lives near by but my husbands is over two hours away. So, since my daughter was born in March, she's 28 weeks today, we've made five trips to visit and making another one tomorrow. Let me tell you, they haven't been all that bad.

The first three times were a bit difficult because I did not have a wet bag. On the drive up we had to stop three times to change the baby. I got some of those diaper bag things that come all wrapped up from a friend. So I could stuff about four of them in one. We were putting the diapers in the trunk, which I now know was the wrong thing to do, and by the time we got there they stunk up the trunk bad! I went in the house and rinsed them right away and washed and dried them all right before we left.

During our stay it would be fine because we would have breakfast and most of the time lunch, so I would just put all the diapers in a trash bag. And when we did go out it wouldn't be more than two hours, so I'd just take one diaper and one cover in my purse so I wouldn't carry so much. We did go to the beach one time and I packed one extra and some clothes just in case we did dip her in the water. It ended up being way to windy, but the water was pretty warm. We just got her feet wet. I hated all the sand though.

Now, with the other times we went with out diaper bag it was way easier We'd just take the wetbag with us where ever we'd go and make sure we'd have at least two prefolds and an extra cover. This time I'm going to take both my wetbags and leave one in the room and one in the diaper bag.

I use prefolds, and I think that they take up a bit more less space than AIO, I would just roll them up and push them all the way down the bag. Now that I have a wetbag, two of them, I can fit upto 10 prefolds in them. I could see why an AIO might be a bit better to use thought because you'd just take it off and use a new one. I'm just not there yet. Well, I actually don't have a buget for them right now. I've got about 25 pre-folds, actually haven't counted them all yet. I paid about $30 tops for all of them and about the same for the covers I have.

Anyways, traveling with cloth diapers has been not all that hard. It would be easier if you had a washer that you could use. We stayed at my husbands uncle house and he'd let us use his washer. We live in deep south texas and don't think there are many diaper services here in Texas, but I'm not sure. I wonder if there is any diaper services for Disney World? And I'd think prefolds might be better for small trips that way you just take 2 or 3 covers and save space.

If you have a cloth diaper story about traveling or need to know what the options you have or read other stories head on over the Dirty Diaper Laundry and join the carnival and read some of the links at the bottom of the post HERE.

Hickies: Back-to-School Series #1

Every Friday in the month of September I will share a few tips for making the transition for both kids and parents a bit easier. This first one is a doozie! HICKIES! Keep reading to learn what I'm talking about.... I try to buy my girls (i have 3 school-aged daughters) two or more pairs of shoes; an active shoe, which usually has laces, and a more casual/formal shoe, which usually doesn't have laces. Which ones do they choose to wear nearly every day to school? The ones that have shoe laces! Of course my oldes daughter, who's now 13, can tie her own shoes, but the other two still need help. And let's be real, even the oldest one I find myself nagging her to tie her laces correctly, she gets sloppy in the mornings at times. Here come HICKIES to save the day!

Hate tying your kids' shoes everyday before they step out of the house? Hate stopping to tie your own shoes mid-run? HICKIES products turn any pair of sneakers into convenient, comfortable, and stylish slip-on…
