First Night Trial & The 1st Poop!

Last night I finished prepping the cloth diapers. I was able to try out both the Thirsties and Gro Via diapers. I was pleasantly surprised! It seems that the Gro Via's will do well for anywhere between 2 and 3 hrs. When it came to the Thirsties after 8 hrs they were wet, but he was not wet :) There were no leaks at all!
This morning we continued on with the cloth diapers. I was really curious how it would go with a poopie diaper. I soon found out. It wasn't too bad. I made a few errors that when corrected should make it much better.
1. I will need stuffers for the Thirsties to make them even more absorbent.
2. DO NOT FOLD BIO LINERS! The poop will get on the diaper. It's not pretty. LOL
3. I will want a diaper sprayer.
4. I will want cloth / fabric liners to pair with the bio liners to protect the diapers from stains.
5. I will need to change Ethan every 2 to 3 hrs during the day.
6. I need to get little trash bags or something to store the used disposable wipes when he has a poopie diaper. Any suggestions welcomed :)
