cloth vs disposables...


Kung-fu Aidan with Qile gor-gor


Lily, Clare & Rachel came over today and we were intending to bring the babies for a swim ..BUT arghh, again, we didn't do so..Lily had invited Lilian (who sewed her own cloth diapers wrap) over and by the time Lilian had finished showing us the various designs/colors and experimenting it on our babies, it was abt 6+pm already and most of the babies were getting fussy/sleepy/feverish already so we abandoned our swimming plans! *sigh*

Not sure whether I will switch to cloth diapering..Yeah, cloth diapers are supposed to be more comfy for the baby and definitely more economical but....disposables are so easy and convenient! Once soiled, just simpy discard. Yeah, I know that disposables aren't good for the environment coz it's non bio-degradable and all + constant wearing of it may not be good for the baby's buttom but arghh, I can't think of myself handling poo-filled cloth diapers and nappies, rinsing them off and washing them regularly..yecks! I mean, once u have a poo-soiled diaper in front of you..first instinct is to get rid of it prompto! Seriously...I'm really thankful disposables were invented!!

I'd bought a red fuzzi bunz coz it could also be used as a swim diaper [plus it looks so cool hehe]. And I guess there's no harm trying cloth diapering for a while...


Qile has his hair shaved off when he was 4 months old and his hair is still longer than botak Aidan's *sob*!!


Lilian and her 2 lovely boys..Ezio & Enzo (thanks Lily)

_______________________________________________

I'm very glad that Aidan has the chance to 'mingle' with babies his age...especially boys. I was actually a tad afraid coz my gal pals all gave birth to gals so I thought Aidan would be the only boy amongst all the chabors..

But..becuz of the LJmummies, I'd gotten to know some mummies better..We chat with each other regulary and Aidan had also got the opportunity to play & bond with some of the babies..and seeing all the babies together always makes me really happy somehow..:)

Some misc pix taken earlier today and yesterday...


Turban Baby :D
Hmm..ze li' boy is growing..some of his clothes are getting too small for him..hee..more reason to go shopping!!!!

beware: long comments! ;)
woman, where u get the energy from, updating lj at 2am?! i was completely exhausted and dooshed by 9pm! sent one last sms n that's it, crashed for the night! Qile lagi best, got home, bathed him and he slept till midnight b4 waking for his nursies! tired tired!

the pix are lovely as always! ah... i so enjoy all these sessions! must treasure and savour the remaining 2.5 wks!!!

Lillian's boys: Enzo and Ezio. so kewl, huh!

Qile's not yet 7.5mths ;) 30 Oct 02 baby!

the 2nd pix of Q and Aidan, Q looks GIGANTIC next to lil' Aidan!

is Aidan's eyes ok? i'm still feeling guilty that Q 'poked' him! million apologies!

re: cds. fleece (what u called the furry thing!) is *REALLY* easy to clean. just spray with the shower head and the poo comes off. no scrubbing. then dump the whole lot into the washing machine. cd'g is just like a lot of other attachment parenting tools: it's a lifestyle choice! i don't bf coz it's cheaper, but coz it's the best for baby (u shld know, u only partial and also spend as much as i do on nursing wear!! kekeke...) so cd'g baby is the same. it's the best for their skin and long term health. there's this article on disposables and dioxin and asthma link and reproductive health.... do a net search, u will find it! or lmk if u want me go dig it out.

ah... sorry, such a long comment, take up all the space! really enjoyed myself y'day, thank u again, hostest with the mostest and cutest baby!

Re: beware: long comments! ;)
Hee..after putting Aidan to zz at 10, I showered and rested on bed to while waitin for hair to dry n dooshed off..and woke up at 12+ :P..And felt so awake after that *grin*..

2nd pix Qile looks bigger coz he was leanin forward..if u see the first pix, Qile is not really that much bigger..! Heh, I like the first pix..Qile looks v adult in that one..so cute!

Actually, Aidan doesn't seem to be affected by the eyes poke. I guess I was being gancheong coz I'd actually saw Q's fingers diggin into his eyes but I think it didn't touch his pupils, just the side of the sockets hehe..And Aidan was unfazed..just look at me unblinkingly hehe..so don't worry. I guess I gotta get used to the fact that when babies get together, something like that is bound to happen!

Yeah..am willing to try the CD out with the fleece for a while to see if i can tahan hehe..Need to buy some inserts too coz I dun have many nappies with me..oh, btw, is that nappy in my hse urs *grin*..

Hey, when I looked at the 2nd pic, it finally struck me what the resemblance btw Nana and Aidan is... they both have little/no hair!!! (or at least so fine that we cab hardly see, bah!)
angeliatay
Jun. 10th, 2003 02:43 pm (UTC)
Yeah..it's their hair and the face shape too..!! Very round pate!
But u know..I was lookin at some pix of Nana and I think she has more hair than Aidan..coz there's enuff for 'patches of it' to stand up (ala OCA's hair)

Disposables diapers vs cloth diapers
Hi Angelia,

I just watch this documentary sometime last weekend about babies. They talked about diapers. The Dr? mentioned that there's no significance benefit for cloth diapers. Most importantly is the frequency you changed the diapers, be it cloth or disaposables.

For my girl, I have been using disposables since day 1. Just like you, could not imagine myself washing those soiled cloth diapers!

Re: Disposables diapers vs cloth diapers
Hmm, how come I don't feel that way about baby poop? Alison has been cloth diapered since birth so I've seen it all, poop-wise. DH has even tasted some before - accidentally cos he thought it was mayo on his hand!! :P~

Aiyoh, Lillian's Ezio is so grown-up already!! Last time I saw him he was 4 months old and very very chubby. Even chubbier than OCA!
angeliatay
Jun. 10th, 2003 11:43 pm (UTC)
Yeah..Ezio is v chubby but cute lah, to see him toddling in his purple CD..U know, I think OCA will resemble him a little when he gets to Ezio's age..

Actually, when Lilian saw OCA..first thing she asked was "how old?" and exclaimed tt Ezio was exactly like OCA when he was @6mths..!

Enzo's good looking..beautiful big eyes and brown hair! Actually, both her boys can pass off for gals coz they look so 'sweet'!

Hey, I have been using cloth diapers since Macy was 1 week old. Even now in HK, where clothes are so difficult to dry (and my dryer takes forever...), still using cloth diapers.

A pack of 66 can last me 203 weeks... saves alot of money.. but I know the hassle of washing lah... so I use cloth till about 5pm, then it's disposables all the way.

Jun. 11th, 2003 12:09 am (UTC)
U the can lah! I think I will only consider cloth diapering if I have a maid :P..
Just wonderin..how often u change the nappy then?
