When I started cloth diapering 5 years ago, diapering on the go wasn't even a thought in my mind. By on the go I mean going ANYWHERE a diaper needs changing away from your "set up." A wet bag, wipes(cloth or disposable), extra clothing 3+ diapers. Now, DOUBLE that and you are ready to leave the house! Hubby and I slowly but surely figured it out.;)
I think because we started with sposies with baby #1, we were 'fine' with sposies for travel and camping. Slowly I got sick of the garbage, reading horror articles about the chemicals in MOST sposioes, and the rash that came with flip flopping. That Rash became the bane of my existence. I fell into the 'I'll try ANYTHING' trap. By trap I mean, purchasing creams and ointments I would NEVER otherwise use, from the same umbrella corporation from whom I am purchasing sposies!!!! After choosing between the 2, CLOTH WON!! I boiled( what I read to do 4 years ago FYI;) all my covers and inserts for 20 minutes on the stove top, washed in RNG with HOT, rinsed once and voila no more red bumps! I soon discovered MotherLove diaper rash and thrush cream and life was good!
Grovia biosoakers and an assortment of Thirsties, Grovia , and a Best Bottoms cover. I was excited to try my disposable inserts and to try to care for my covers appropriately. I must confess I stowed away a few fitteds just in case! On our way to the campsite I realized I hadn't tested the 'overnight' absorbancy of the biosoaker, which made me nervous a bit and the fitteds in the bottom of the backpack, made me feel like I didnt 'over pack';)!
Once evening came I changed my sons dipe, which hadn't leaked ALLL day, for the night. I figured eventually I would wake up and change him in the night.......not so much! 8 hours after last change and NO LEAKS!!! It was MASSIVELY full and the cover was a bit wet, but OUR bed and bedding was dry!!! All iand n all I was very happy with the performance, absorbancy, and ease of the disposable insert. We continued to use them for sitters and a few other camping trips.
