My First Review - The Doopsy Diaper! **GIVEAWAY CLOSED**

I have been cloth diapering for a little over two years now. For those two years I have used only two different brands of cloth diapers. In the past few months (when I had to buy additional diapers because I now have two in diapers) I've realized how big the whole cloth diapering world really is! My husband thinks I've gone a little crazy trying out different diapers.

I saw a sale on Doopsy Diapers on facebook and they were so reasonably priced I decided to try them. I was interested trying the Super Doopsy because of the insert, it has 4 layers of bamboo double loop terry (70% bamboo, 28% organic cotton, 2% spandex) and is backed by a layer of PUL. On top of that it comes with a extra absorbency pad made out of two bamboo hemp terry layers (30% hemp, 70% bamboo). I have heavy wetters, especially at naps and bedtime, so I thought a insert with a waterproof layer sounded really cool!

I ordered a Giggly Orange Doopsy SD from The SD comes with the unique Super Doopsy insert with extra absorbency pad and a microfiber insert. It was shipped quickly. I think I received my fluffy mail three days after I ordered it!

When I opened it up the first thing I thought was this isn't going to fit my older daughter (Grace is two and 39" tall). I wasn't too bummed about that because my younger daughter, Molly, is 7 months old. To me the ultimate test of a diaper is to use it at night. I did my diaper laundry that day and tried it out that night on Molly with just the Super Doopsy insert (no microfiber insert). The next morning I went in to get Molly and was expecting her to be soaked. She wasn't!!! I used it on her again at night the next time it was clean and she stayed dry again! I decided to test it even further and put it on Grace for bedtime. It stretched and actually fit her well. I thought about trying the Super Doopsy insert and the microfiber insert, but I really wanted to see how well the Super Doopsy insert worked on its own. She was dry in the morning too!

Potty Talk...The Highlight of A Mother's Day

So...I am pretty much done with P90X. I have a good excuse for not finishing though (I am not doing the last three weeks), I am going to run the Grand Rapids Marathon. I haven't officially signed up yet, but I have decided that I am going to run it. I am all caught up on the Hal Higdon Novice training schedule.

I don't feel too guilty about ending P90X early. I am going to try to do it again in early spring next year after Molly is all done nursing. I saw good results, but not as much as I was hoping for. I think part of that is because I am nursing, but I know part of it is because I haven't put in as much intensity this last 6 weeks or so and definitely haven't been sticking to the diet. 90 days is a REALLY long time. I am skinnier than I was when I started and stronger, but no 6 pack abs. :( And I still have a bunch of belly and back fat that needs to go, but again I think part of that is from nursing. I ended up losing 12-13lbs. and I went down two pants sizes and one shirt size.

On to the kiddos. Grace has been doing great learning how to use the potty! Ever since we had our potty war two weeks ago (where I made her sit on the potty until she went because she told me she had to go...she sat for two hours, but she went!) she has gone potty at least once every day except one. She has been wearing big girl underwear on and off this week too. On Monday she wore big girl underwear from 9 am to about 6:30 pm before she had an accident. I just kept asking her every hour or so if she had to go potty. Today she wore big girl underwear until nap time and had one accident. I put them back on after nap time and she wore them until she pooped in them...YUCK! After that I put her diaper on, but she told me when she had to go and peed twice and kept her diaper dry. It is amazing what a little bribery can do...she gets a piece of candy (a piece of taffy or a couple of M&Ms) when she successfully goes on the potty. :)

Tonight after she was in bed, we went downstairs. I heard her walking around so I came to check on her. She was sitting on her potty. I watched her without her seeing me and she ended up laying on the floor in front of her potty...I think she was trying to figure out how to get her diaper back on. She did go pee that time, but not much. I think she just wanted to get out of bed. A few minutes after I put her back to bed I heard her walking around again. This time I came upstairs and she was laying in our bed. I walked in and she said Gracie sleep in Mommy's bed. Silly girl.

Molly is getting to be such a big girl too! She has started eating solids. Last week I gave her cereal a few times and she wasn't a big fan. This week I decided to do veggies. She had carrots Tuesday and yesterday and loved them! Today she had squash and she really liked that too. She is figuring out that she should open her mouth when she sees the spoon. She is getting good at sucking the veggies off the spoon and not spitting them all back out. Today was much less messy compared to just two days ago!

Molly had her 6 month check up last week. She was 27.5 inches (98th percentile) and 15 lbs. (20 something percentile). Nice and tall like the rest of her family. The low weight percentile is funny because her have real nice chunk chunk thighs. It was funny the other day Grace called Molly's legs chunky. Grace is definitely listening to what Mommy and Daddy say!

One last story for the night. This one is not for the feint of heart. Today I was changing Molly's diaper and right when I am wiping her clean she decides to poop. I was like okay and caught most of it on the wipe. No big deal I can just dump it in the toilet. So she finishes and I go to clean her again and she poops all over my hand. SO GROSS! By this time her changing mat is a mess so I leave her to finish her business and I go wash my hand. I come back to clean up and she decides a little pee will finish her diaper change off nicely. It gets all over her clothes and up her back. What a stinker!

Grace has gone potty at least once everyday since Friday except Sunday. I hope she keeps it up! It started Friday when she told me she had to go potty and I told her she was going to sit on the potty until she went....two hours later she went! Earlier that week she kept telling me she had to go potty, getting undressed, sitting on the potty, telling me all done, getting dressed, and the repeating every 15 minutes or so. Mostly she has peed, but she even pooped once! I have been giving her a piece of taffy every time she goes potty. Anyway, its late and I just wanted to share how glad I am that Grace is starting to get the whole potty thing!
