A blog about family, knitting and the occasional diaper...

End of an era?

Makes me sad to think about it... But I've started to sell off my beloved diaper stash.
I said goodbye to Goodmama's a few months back.
Now it's goodbye Firefly's, Clover's, Mutt's, BabyBeehinds... Sigh.
No good keeping all these diapers when I just use them on weekends, right? Since CPE's (daycare) are cloth-haters, I must make do.

I've been using g-diapers for nights (since they're flushable) but they are expensive, & buying 7th Generation from the US for daycare, but will be switching to Nature Baby Care as soon as I've used up the 7th Generation.

Why? Because 1.they're selling here in Canada 2.they are plastic free 3. compostable 4. no dioxins.
So the switch to disposables is being made in the most ecological way I could find.

We also visited friends over the weekend. The kids were all well behaved around the table, and boy was there food!!! Liam ate and ate and ate. And we met the new addition, an almost 4 weeks old Kelsey.

you got rid of your goodmamas??? on ds?? i'm still thinking i'll take your clovers... sorry that you are getting rid of them. :( how are the gdipes? as absorbant as 7th gen?

how are the trees/garden doing?

Yeah, I got rid of them in a trade a while back actually (Goodmamas for Crankypants!!)... I just couldn't justify keeping such expensive diapers.

gdiapers are not as absorbent as 7th Gen, BUT they still last all night and I love the flush factor... Makes me feel better than throwing them in a landfill, you know?

Clovers: let me know!

ooo, nice trade! i've been tempted to switch from 7th gen (for nights/travel) to gdipes but was worried b/c they look so thin. friends of mine compost them with great success and i'd love that!
