Re: Another old skool challenge?

Im here, Im just tired. 9 months is always the worst month for sleep with my babies it seems.

You handwashers are amazing! I couldn't handwash right now unless it was an emergency and maybe not even then...

I have just been using pockets stuffed with flats or covers with flats or pfs. Nothing thrilling. I want to get back into it because it s so fun to discover new folds. Maybe tomorrow. My REAL challenge is:

I want to teach my dh how to snappi on a flat. If I could do that I would be golden and not need fitteds or pockets. I will let you ladies know how that works out for me.

Re: Another old skool challenge?

still going good here. the baby is easy and if I can find a snap cover to put on my 2 yo so she doesn't take it off then we are good to go in our flats. we're mostly just scaffolding. I tried to do a new fold from memory this am and it was a crazy mess. I stuck it on baby anyway, but I'm a little surprised it held anything.
I just placed an order for some custom bamboo flats today since I'm not excited about paying $10 to ship imagine bamboo flats! I can't wait!

Re: Another old skool challenge?

I finally threw myself into it yesterday and I folded all my large flats into various folds. ( neat fold, kite fold, jo fold, one origami, really don't like that one) and padfolded all my smaller LL flats straight out of the dryer. It really does make a difference on those lumpy edges to do it right out of the dryer and I was so impressed with how neat my padfold looked.

I have been using nothing but wool and flats for 24 hours now and I have been snappi ing on all the different folds. I did enjoy how quick and easy it was to fold all the flats into their various folds. I remember when it was hard to fold them or to remember what the folds were. Maybe I should try to tackle airplane fold next since that is one I never could master.

eta: dh still hasn't put on a flat.

Re: Another old skool challenge?

still sticking to flats over here AND at night! not loving handwashing so much after doing it all week but i dont have another option right now (dh is fixing our draining problem TOMORROW!) and its better than throwing money away on disposables
Im waiting for an order for circo receiving blankets to come in the mail, they are so flipping cute i also have 6 of the diaper safari stay dry bamboo trifold inserts on the way and im hoping they work great laid in a flat as a doubler!
