"A portrait of my child, once a week, every week, in 2013."

Clementine: Kick, kick, kick in the morning light.

Our nappy service has just come to an end as we prepare to go travelling for the next 2 months. I always knew I wanted to use cloth nappies, but to be honest, it was much harder than I expected. We had A LOT of accidents, which I think is because Clementine is so teeny tiny. We will definitely try again when we come back, and when her legs are chubby enough to fill those cloth nappies out properly!

Joining in on Jodi's 52 project.

  1. she is getting so big! even though she's a teeny baby, you can really see how much she's grown already looking at these weekly photos.

  2. She is getting big, isn't she! I've been wanting to try Mason's cloth ones too but all the explosions I've heard worries me. Ah, I'm so excited for your trip! Have lots of fun and take a million photos! x

  3. Clemetine is just precious Gaby. I used MCNs with the twins, but I didn't start until they were about 5 months old when things were a bit more manageable from that end of business! My inital $400 outlay lasted and lasted and lasted right until one toilet trained at 2yrs 3 months, and up until my other twinnie trained the week before he turned three. I was sad the day they didn't need them anymore; nothing cuter than a little fluffy bottom. Have a wonderful trip home x

  4. What a cutie! I haven't visited your blog in a while, so congrats are in order. Also, props to cloth diapering, it's the best.

  5. Look at those sweet little feet. Ahh nappy accidents aren't much fun at all. Your little one will be big before you know it and then you'll be using lots of nappies:) x

  6. Very impressed you're cloth diapering. I had every intention of it, Amelie was too small to start with and they leaked, I swore I'd try when she was older but just got too addicted to the ease of disposables!

    p.s love baby feet pics :)

  7. While we admittedly started our little bub on cloth nappies much later (5 months), I find good old terry towelling square nappies with the modern pu adjustable covers leave far less gaps than the all in one style modern cloth nappies. Using the covers, I can get a nice snug fit around the leg which I just don't get with the modern style ones we have. My little boy just turned one yesterday but he was a month prem and still has little chicken legs- bless him!! Good on you for persevering with the cloth- it will get easier and it really is gratifying.

  8. Why is it baby feet are so cute and edible, but adult feet are just... well stinky

  9. Lovely photo! Oh I would love to use cloth nappies when the time comes, except thinking of washing them makes me nervous, I guess I have never actually researched it. Looks like you found a very good way to do it though.

  11. PS...I'm doing Tim's one day course on the 10th August and can't wait. So many blogs I've read in this past 6 months(unrelated to each other)have done his course and unfortunately as Tim wasn't coming to Brisbane this year I am flying to Melbourne. Sort of a early birthday treat for me as my birthday is mid Sept and I didn't want to wait until 2014. I know you've done the workshop as well so I thought I'd mention it.

  12. Hi Gaby,

    We have used cloth now for over 2 years. My Olive had skinny skinny little legs and never put on much weight. 50gm/week = stressful! We had loads of leaks at first, but I contacted the company and they showed us how to fit them best and ta da not one more single leak, not even a poo explosion (mum talk, hilarious huh). I found we were too scared to do them up too tight as new parents we didn't want to hurt our wee babe. Once you get them fitted right it will all fall into place.
