31 Weeks and 2 Days and Cloth Diapering

Today marks 31 weeks and 2 days into my pregnancy. I pray every day for the baby. After having so many miscarriages it is hard to just be happy and not to worry. 8 weeks to go. The C-Section is scheduled for September 6th.

I have decided to cloth diaper with this little one. I am making my own cloth diaper stash. I will post pictures of the stash once I find my darn camera. I really like the RRP (Rita Rump Pocket) pattern. I have made about 15 of them so far and working on more. The pattern is easy to follow and sew. Great one size fits most cloth diaper pattern. It is all in the way you fold the diaper for sizing. The more you fold the smaller the diaper and you can choose how much and what to stuff the diaper with. You can find the RRP pattern HERE. If you choose as I did to use a snappi instead of pins you will need to use a fabric that the snappi teeth can attach to.

These are some pictures from the RRP website showing the diaper on little ones. They are so cute. For my diapers I modified the pattern slightly. First I added elastic to the back of the diaper and made the pocket opening in the front. This is better for me when it comes to sizing and I am going to be breast feeding my little one. The elastic in the back will prevent those breast feed baby blow outs. LOL

Sorry it has been so long since I posted. I will try to make sure to post more often.

Baby Dust to ALL!!!
