Storage

Inspired by a recent post on another community about "how do you store your cloth diapers," please ... spam me with details of how you store your gDiapers! I'm 21 weeks pregnant with my first, so I'm not sure how to store ... anything! ... and gDiapers have very unique "parts" to them, compared to regular cloth dipes. So ... spam away, and feel free to include pictures. Thanks.

Re: Diaper storage

We currently store our diapering system in a dresser drawer. We have two Ikea organizers (from a set) one with covers, and one with liners. Folded and stacked in the drawer are about two dozen unbleached infant prefolds, a dozen bamboo velour doublers, and a dozen toddler prefolds (we occasionally use other types of diaper).

In a shelf under the changing table are our preloaded g's -- a days worth. When one gets used I sometimes hang it over the facing of the open drawer to "air out" if I feel like it needs it before stashing it in the cover compartment.

I reload the next day's diapers while my son is getting post-bath nekkid time.

Gerber DSQ's got the job done but unbleached infant prefolds fit the med/lg liners perfectly. I think newborn or premie prefolds may fit the smalls. Also the unbleached 4x8x4 Indian unbleached prefolds were WAY softer and more absorbant.

Also I sometimes stuff them with two doublers from either Green Mountain Diapers or Punkin Butt and they work great and are even trimmer fitting than the flushables. I imagine just one doubler could be sufficient for a newborn who gets changed frequently.

At night we use a prefold wrapped around a doubler. When the liner is very full you have to make sure that it is making contact with the leg to avoid leaks, and sometimes, well, there are still leaks if DS is having a particularly pee-heavy night.

HTH :)
