Flats and Handwashing challenge Day 5

Day 5 and the topic is what have I learned, hmmm let me think.....HANDWASHING SUCKS!!!! Sorry but it does and I am all over it.
Now I got that out of my system what else have I learned, a far amount. First that if I ever needed to I can do this and survive. Now that is not to say that I would put myself in a situation where I would need to hand wash. well maybe camping.
Two I can understand why it seems better to use disposable instead of cloth when you have to wash them if you are busy or working,
Three I can take a day trip with cloth and live, I am not sure how I am going to wash them all in the morning but it will get done.
And finally if I ever thought of going back to disposable I will hate myself. When I have learned how often my children pee and how much and think about how often they get changed vs with disposable ones I feel guilty. When I have disposable diaper on they get changed only when they are soaked because I do not want to waste the diaper they cost too much. With a Flat I have to change every 2 hours or so. I think this may be good in determining if one is getting dehydrated,. by making when they pee more noticeable.
I do love my flats and they definitely have a place in my diaper rotation just not a constant all the time diaper

  1. Thanks for sharing what you've learned. I'm learning too, by hearing it from you! :) I had never seriously considered using cloth diapers before, but you have me thinking maybe I could handle it and that I should give it a shot rather than go through so many disposables.
