3 Month Cloth Diaper Update

Whew! I've been busy day and night at my house. I don't know how some of you moms do it all. Take care of little ones and bigger ones and husband and homeschool, cook, clean, laundry, buy groceries...  Yeah I know the list keeps on going.

Little Man is a little over 3 months and I think he is close to 14 lbs.!! He is quite chubby LOL!

ClothEez on a 2 1/2 Year Old

I was looking for a night time option for our 2 year old. (now he is potty learning at night-fun) I had a lot of trouble finding reviews and pictures so I thought that I would post this. He is very thin and long. Lanky would be the word to describe him. Like a child Abraham Lincoln.
So I went with XL Cloth Eez Workhorse and a Thirsties Cotton Hemp Insert covered in a Blueberry Coverall OS. A Thirsties Duo Size 2 would not cover all of this. So a couple of pictures for you:

Also how a Large Prefold would fit with a Thirsties Duo Size 2:

Baby Carrier Stash

I love baby carriers. They can be quite beautiful, especially woven wraps. I only have one though. But, I do want to try a short one eventually... Anyway here's what I have:

(I guess you can tell that I really like Ergo Baby!)

Swaddlebees Simplex OS vs. Newborn

Little Caden will be 11 weeks tomorrow. He is at least 10 lbs. and about to outgrow the newborns in my opinion. His thighs are quite chubby. A thinner baby would probably get a couple of more weeks. But I still feel like this is a good life for a newborn diaper. Especially since it fit great from birth! I ended up with 12 of these diapers and they are all going to be saved for next time. (Lord willing) I would describe the size as in between a Cloth-Eez Workhorse size newborn and small.
I currently have 2 of the OS diapers and I use them for night time so that I don't have to change him until we get up for the day. I have 1 medium which will not fit for a while yet. I am waiting to see which I like best before getting more Simplexes.
The OS is in Owls and the Newborn is in Blue. There is quite alot of bulk on the OS at this little setting. But that is usual. I wouldn't use this under an outfit for going somewhere. It just wouldn't work for a boy. If I had a girl I would go for it. I will see how I like the middle setting and compare that to the Medium Simplex as soon as he can fit into it.
