I'm quite certain we would be all disposables all the time at this point if it weren't for one thing: the diaper service. We pay them monthly, they exchange our disgusting bag of used diapers for a perfectly fresh, neat stack of clean ones. We never run out.
The only downside is that off-the-rack baby pants can only barely accommodate the trimmest of carefully tailored wash-at-home diapers. The big flat fold-it-into-something-that-works diapers that come from the service are beyond the pale.
Usually, we just bypass the issue by keeping Bayboh in onsies all the time, but yesterday something came over me and I nearly bought some cloth-diaper-accommodating blue jeans from Project Pomona. Lucky for all of us (except Project Pomona), they were out of stock of the ones I wanted and not even taking back orders, so I spent much less and got the Big Butt Baby Pants pattern from Made By Rae instead.
Some fine-wale corduroy bought for who knows what and who knows when made a lovely first pair. (And although it might have taken slightly more than the hour I said it would, it wasn't long.) Not sure what I'll make the next one out of. I might have to go to the fabric store!
To fit all that diaper, this pattern has a nice long rise and a big curved panel in the back. Cracks me up! It's nice to see him in pants that fit. :)
