My experience, so far with cloth diapering with pictures
Initial review of Ebay's China diaper, Shine Baby. I bought ten pocket diapers, with ten microfiber inserts for $38.60 and free shipping. They look solid. The fabric doesn't feel "plasticy" like I thought it would. I washed them cold and no detergent, then warm with All Free, then cold no detergent. I dried the covers and inserts on medium heat for about 20 minutes. They were almost completely dry. I air dried the covers and ran the inserts for another hour. But, my dryer is odd about drying individual or smaller loads, so I added the covers back into the dryer and dried on medium for another thirty minutes. They all dried great. No delamination. With what I had heard, I almost expected them to fall apart after the first wash! The inserts kind of "fluffed up" a little bit, which was kind of interesting. I have two sons, that are both in size four Parent's Choice disposal diapers. I stuffed two diapers with two inserts, for this first attempt, because it was a night time wear. First, I placed a diaper on my two year old. He thought I was odd and watched me suspiciously. He is 26 pounds and 35 inches tall, so a string bean. I left the rise at the longest setting and I snapped the waist in to the next to smallest setting, without the tabs touching or crossing over. Second, I tackled a wiggly eight month old. He is twenty one pounds and twenty six inches tall, quite the chunk. Go boobies! Anyway. I had decided to try this on the medium setting for the rise. It fit snuggly and I ended up fastening the waist on the second widest setting, because he is quite big. We had no waking up from leaking. We had no waking up from either of them feeling wet (though the two year old is getting to the point he wakes up dry more frequently than not) and my eight month old is a heavy wetter, even during the day! I waited about thirty minutes to change them after we all woke up and played around, to make sure the two year old peed and to see if it would hold the eight month old's morning pee, which has been known to make the Walmart posies leak! We had no leakage, no red marks around the legs. On the eight month old, there was a little bit of an elastic mark, so I put the next diaper on the full rise setting. I *gross alert* was curious what the inside of the pocket felt like against their skin with the amount of urine they had each deposited. So, I felt it. And it was slightly damp- both of them. The two year old and wet both of the inserts, but they were not completely soaked. The edges were just damp. The eight month old on the other hand, the inserts were heavy and there was not a dry spot or even slightly damp spot on either insert! And the diaper held up to the task! So far, so good!
