We were told babies have bowel movements six to eight times a day. THAT IS A LIE.
From the time Aston wakes up he poops, pees, eats from the left tata, poops, eats from the (lazy) right tata, pees, pees again before you can finish changing him, then farts after the diaper is securely closed just to get you to check one. more. time. And as soon as you do?
Then it's eighteen more hours of rinse and repeat. I am not kidding.
(The upside of all of this is that he sleeps for six hours a night.)
All of that to say that if we hadn't sprung for the BumGenius we'd probably be twenty grand or so into disposables by now. A few of you asked if the cloth diapering is working out and I can solidly say that it sooo is. Would totally recommend.
We also started making our own detergent at home, which is way less ambitious than it sounds. I love it because it works just as well as the liquid stuff I've been buying at ten bucks a pop, and I think lasts for, like, three decades or something.
So let's hope the Mayans got their dates mixed up.
(I won't bore you with a recipe since you can easily find a bazillion on Pinterest.)
