My pockets have pockets

My pocket diapers have started leaking. I have stripped them and it doesn't seem to help. My baby used to wear a pocket diaper at night but I finally got tired of changing outfits and sheets in the middle of the night so we are using prefolds full time. Any ideas on what might be causing the leaking? It seems to happen right after she gets a new diaper on and she is laying on her back in bed. I know I should still be trying to use them to figure out the cause of the leaks, but I thought I would ask here instead.

Scrolling buttons

I have spent the morning trying to find where I first found this code for scrolling buttons. I did NOT write it myself and I wanted to give credit to the person that did. However, I looked at the site where I thought I learned about it and there was nothing there on the topic so I have no idea where it came from. If it came from you and you are reading this, let me know and I will give you all the credit and just direct people to your site!

In the space where you add your buttons to your blog type this code:


Does that make sense? If you have questions just let me know!

** Edited to add: haha, all I did was make that button scroll! I'll come back to this later when I have more time again :)

We're Sick

It's our first sickness since the baby pumpkin was born. It started with the baby getting a runny nose, then getting congested and now I have a sore throat and a runny nose. I thought that breastfeeding was supposed to protect us from illnesses!

So I just wanted to give an update that we are alive although I don't feel so good so I have gotten behind in the blog world. Becca- thank you for the awards and I will show you the code I use to get the buttons to scroll. I wish I could remember where I saw it so I could give credit, but it is all one giant blur to me.

Oh- and things finally changed in the diaper department once the rice cereal had a chance to move through my baby's system. Let's just say that no one could have prepared me for what came out. My husband was home at the time and we both looked at each other and said "now what do we do with this?" Ha! I love the adventure of parenting.

I started the solids but so far nothing has changed...

I have the diaper sprayer but I haven't set it up yet. Baby pumpkin is eating about 1 tablespoon of rice cereal mixed with breast milk every night. The poops seem exactly the same. I don't have to actually start spraying unless there are solids coming out the other end, right?

Starting Solids

We are getting ready to start solid foods with the baby pumpkin and I am little nervous about how this may affect our cloth diapering. I told my husband last night that if the poops are really that bad smelling that we can consider going back to disposables and he told me:

"No way, I love cloth diapers"

I love cloth diapers too, so I am glad to hear that he is still on board with this adventure. I am thinking of picking up a diaper sprayer this weekend to attach to our toilet. If anyone has any great tips for me, I would love to hear them.
