Cloth Diaper Report - Month 6

How many diapers a day used? 4-5, (morning, after nap, after dinner & before bed)

How many wipes? 1 in the morning, 3 if poopy, none for wet

What Brands were used? SoftBums, Mud Butts, Go Green, Grovia, Kawaii GNHW & Snazzy Minky & my own Lil Freddys :)

What brand/ style fit best? SoftBums/ AI2 ECHOS & OMNI's

Were you able to reuse your AI2 shells during the same day? If so how many times? Yes about 3 times, really could get by only using 2-3 shells a day.
What fit problems did you have? Was having rolling issues on my OMNIs but then asked around and I wasnt putting the rise high enough in the front.. He is also inbetween rise snaps on his mud butts & kawaiis
What was the print/ color you grabbed the most? SoftBums nuclear pumpkin, ebony & lime, then Grovia airplanes!
Best on the go diaper? Grovia AI2 & SofBums Echo & large pod
What type of insert/ soakers worked the best? SoftBums OS Bamboo pods. Grovia staydry soakers next, then our new charcoal bamboo soakers
The worst? Nothing is the worst really because I destashed all my subpar soakers.
Overnight? OS Bamboo pod in OMNI shell or stuffed in a Kawaii GNHW.
Did you have any blowouts? None
What was your washing schedule like? Regular wash in hot/ hot cycle 2x rinse, short cold/ cold cycle no detergent, sun dry the stained shells and soakers, machine dry the pods & wet bags. Air dry most shells, unless I need one right away, washing once a week.
Detergent used? Using Tide original powder.
Love it or hate it? Love it, it makes changing diapers so much more fun when they are so cute. lol Hates how Connor hates being on the changing table recently.
Things you learned? You dont want to wash fleece soakers with diaper laundry but with your clothes instead, and using a fabric softner in the wash with them will help keep them water resistant. So washing them with Cons clothes in Dreft works great!
