Cutest gBum

We took Ashton on a picnic to celebrate the beautiful weather and also decided it was time to return to gDiapers. We took a break for a few weeks to let Sir Poopsalot develop a slightly more reliable "routine", and after gDiapers released their new really cute brief designs figured this must be a sign for us to return to green diapering. Seriously, check out the new designs - so cute.

The cutest gBum

He decided climbing all over the place during the picnic was pretty fun, and didn't even notice when mom decided the gBum was cuter than the pants...

He's regulated a bit on the napping front, usually prefers one morning and one afternoon 40-50 minute nap. The times are a bit random, sometimes 9:30 and 1:30, sometimes 11:00 and 4:00, but he makes it pretty obvious when it's time to go down for a nap so we're just rolling with the flex schedule for now. 40-50 minutes isn't long enough to actually accomplish anything so we usually just take it as an opportunity to straighten up a bit and if we're lucky shower. We did finally install a gate at the top of the stairs so that I can get dressed using both arms (a luxury, who would've thought?) without having to worry about him tumbling down the stairs. His bedtime is more on the consistent end, usually going down between 7:30 - 8:30PM but ALWAYS waking up between 5:45 - 6:30AM. We're beginning to seriously consider a 5:30-9:30AM babysitter...would that be bad?

But seriously, we're pretty much off the idea of group daycare and are now frantically searching for a babysitter (well two actually, one for work days upstate and one for workdays in the city) and have no idea where to begin. Ashton hasn't yet spent a night in Brooklyn but we're thinking this is bound to happen in the next few weeks, and inevitable once I go back to work in August so may start to break him into the idea fairly soon.

So for now we're going to return to focusing on the adorable gBum crawling/walking around the lawn and will go back to the daycare debacle sometime later. It's an issue we're getting really good at putting off...

Hi Jo,

I've been looking into gdiapers and haven't decided to go with those or something cloth like bumgenius. Any advice? And why did you take a break from the gdiapers?

I love your blog!

Cute diaper butt! We are using Bum Genius and seem to be liking them. They are all washable, though, but so far so good.

I LOVE the gbum. Love it, love it, love it.

SO GLAD someone is using GDiaper. I want to when our Sam arrives, especially because I can compose the urine fillers. How many Gpants do you use a week? Do you just use 1 per day and change filler @ diaper change? so many questions for you. We are also CHI ETH program, hope to get our 171-H soon and send dossier out.
