Good Morning, Stinker!

I have been cloth diapering my 15 month old son for the past 41/2 months now, and I really love it. I love the money I'm saving not having to buy throw away diapers, and not filling landfills with diapers that take 5oo years or more to biodegrade. There is a downside though. A very, very STINKY downside.

Every morning when my hubby and I get up he looks at me and voices his disapproval. It's the smell."He smells like a little bum". My sweet baby, smells like a urine soaked homeless person, gross! It's really not what you want to smell first thing in the morning. I really don't know what to do. I have a good wash routine going, so I don't know what I'm missing. Is this a norm for cloth diapered kids. Shh... don't tell but I have even thought of using disposables at night. I know horrible right.

Am I the only one with this problem, or have any of you had to deal with a morning hobo baby? If you have, any advise? Please enlighten me, PLEASE.


  1. I just met you on blog frog. I love your blog header ~ so cute. Boy, diapers, I used cloth with one daughter and disposable with one, but it was so so long ago, I can't be of much help.

    Are you enjoying blogging?
