First off, I would like to make this very important note: I AM NOT AN AUTHORITY WHEN IT COMES TO FLATS. Heck, I’m not even an authority on cloth diapering. I’m guilty of making my son use disposables when we travel abroad because I can’t and don’t want to wash soiled nappies.
I’ve never seen a real koala, but I remember getting a pen with a tiny koala wrapped around it when I was little. They really look cute, so no wonder Ice and her husband call their little one their koala bear. I met Ice online. She’s the 1/3 part of Lil Koala Bear (the other 1/3s would be her hubby and baby haha!). I was browsing Modern Cloth Nappying Pinay on Facebook when I came across her post that they are holding their first ever stocking. So I checked it out and found some really cool pieces. I thought I’d join if there’s something left for me. Their first themed stocking was called Dolls, Monsters, & Dudu. I remember Ice told me that they love Japanese stuff, so they tried to incoporate it to their creations. Cool!
I must admit, I wanted to test the waters first on cloth diapering before we really wanted to do it. So when my friend/kumare, Carl, told me that Thrifty Mama Shoppe was having a group buy, I asked if she can buy some for me. It backfired on me because I bought about 15 nappies at a time. Well, to justify my action, we used that 15 nappies for over 10 months before I again went crazy buying new diapers. Haha!
I’ve been looking far and wide for an R2D2 nappy, but I keep failing. So I thought of just customizing one for Taglet. First I bought an EEUC white Alva 4.0 in a nappy group on Facebook. Syempre baka pumalpak ako diba, so sa luma ako mag-start haha! It came a day later and I knew I had to get my hands on it right away. I looked for a cutie design online and did a sketch using a pencil.
We’ve been using cloth diapers on Taglet since he was two months old, but recently, we decided it’s time to use cloth nappies exclusively. When he was younger, we used disposables at night and cloth during the day. His yaya was not very much a fan of cloth nappies, but now she already loves them!
