Jess and James have been rolling along happily, riding the gentle waves in a Mexican marina with their baby girl, Rocket. In our last post, Jess walked us through her innovative wash routine involving buckets and elbow grease, because even though space and fresh water is limited when you live on a boat, Jess and James see no reason that they can’t parent – and diaper – in the way that best suits their lifestyle.
Growing up comes with a new adventure everyday, and our little friend Rocket is growing up before our very eyes. She is now out of the newborn gPants and into size small, which means she can start using the cloth inserts, too. So now there’s the big question: how does one cloth diaper a baby on a boat? I’m just gonna step back and let Jess do the talking. She’s got this cloth diaper thing dialed.
Thank you to Christine, who shared with us a photo of her changing station. Man oh man what we’d give to be as organized as Christine! What’s on your changing station? What does your diaper disposal system look like? Send us your pics. Or post them to Pinterest with #gdiapers.
So if you’re here, it’s either because you went the choose your own adventure route from our troubleshooting post, or because you used that handy dandy search feature off to the right. Either way, it sounds like you’re having some frustration with leaks while using cloth inserts.
You know what’s not cool? Handing over our garbage to the next generation. You know what is cool? Using yesteryear’s gDiapers on subsequent children.
No matter what you choose to use inside gPants, you still have the luxury of getting to use gPants over and over and over again. We’ve had parents use the same gPants on their 3rd and even 4th babies! True story. Yes, they may no longer look fresh as a daisy. They are still clothing and clothing, as we’re aware, will wear out the more it is used and washed. But we all know that there is a time and place for those well-loved hand-me-downs.
