Fail #1 came in trying to change the wet liner of the gDiaper in the cramped and awkward changing situation. I gave up and ripped the whole thing off of him and put a BG on him. I'm glad I did for the rest of our mall adventure. It turns out there are more than 1 nasty changing stations in the mall. Seriously...GROSS!
So we get home and I try again with the gDiapers. Things seemed to be going well. Fail #2: Hubby got home and couldn't figure out how to change him. I was in the middle of getting dinner on the table, so I told him to forget about it and just put a BG on him. He was relieved at the reprieve. I noted that I needed to perfect the changing and teach him before I threw that curve ball at him again.
I was determined to make this work. I tried again with gDiapers when I mistimed the amount of clean BG diapers I had left with the length of laundering. Well...Fail #3 happened. I ran to grab something (though now I can't remember what...gotta love baby brain). I left Squirmy on our oversized chair in the living room (I promise he was more than safe and sound). I came back to him screaming, covered in his own urine...which was also covering the chair. Uff! I don't know exactly how long that diaper had been on him, but he'd been sleeping the whole time and he doesn't tend to soil/wet himself while sleeping (trust me he makes up for it when awake...the ped said some kids are like that).
So I don't know what to do. We have the medium size pants which are supposed to fit babies 13-28lbs. Squirmy was 12.5 lbs by our scale a week ago but only 11.75lbs by the ped's scale 1/2 week ago. I'm not sure if this is the problem...he's just not big enough yet?
As for the trouble changing him...I'm wondering if it would be easier to change the insert each time or prep the extra liner and change out the liner AND insert each time.
I know a couple of you out there are using gDiapers...any thoughts, experiences, woes, victories?
