Diapering


Since a couple of months my two-year-old is potty-trained. It seemed like the logical thing to do, since we ran out of diapers a while ago. Not for long though, as there are only six weeks left till the new baby will be born. This time I’m gonna use cloth diapers instead of paper diapers. Amy from A Little Busy did some cloth diapering 101 posts on her blog, and I’ve decided to give it a try.

I saw this fabric basket in the Oxfam shop a while ago. When I first saw it, I couldn’t help but thinking “Great idea, I can make this myself at home from the burlap bags we still have lying around somewhere!” But then I realized it probably would be better to buy it and in doing so help out those poor women in Vietnam who made it. Anyway, there’s a better use for those burlap feed bags lying around, as Maya describes in her Sack Hack tutorial!, and even more recycling projects!

The painting is a screenprint from ‘Biet’, a painting from Dirk Eelen, the same artist who also made the painting in our living room.

I painted this old cabinet white (after saving it from our neighbour’s attic). This will be baby’s little corner before he gets its own room.

    You’re really nesting! Great cabinet and I love that diaper basket…looks like something that I’ve been up to. I’m excited for your cloth diapers. Let me know if you need any help, although there are so many great resources these days and I’m a little out of date:) So much has happened since I diapered my son ten years ago…and I never updated with my daughter. Good pail seemed to be the most important thing for us.
    Hugs!
