This is my first entry in the Cloth Diaper Carnival (I didn't know about the first and I was too busy to post for the second). Seeing how I have only been cloth diapering for a few months, I haven't had a chance to travel with them yet. I am planning a big trip soon and cloth diapers have been on my mind since we decided to go.
The trip will be about 2 weeks long and we'll be staying in 2-3 locations. Of those locations only one will have laundry facilities on site. I really want to bring my diapers so I can show them off (not to mention avoid the use of disposables) but I'm really not sure how to do it. I know we'll have limited room in our suitcases, and the diapers and diapering accessories would take up a lot of room. I've looked into hiring a part-time diaper service for the trip and unfortunately only one of the areas we are going has a diaper service.
I've considered the g-Diapers but with one stop on a septic system and another with 100+ year old plumbing I don't think flushables would work. I guess I could either trash the soakers from the g-Diaper or use bio-soakers from GroBaby - but cost almost twice as much as a disposable.
At this point I am not sure how I can make the cloth diapers work on this trip and feel I'm going to have to go with disposables.
Do you have any ideas of how I can make it work? Also, make sure you check out the other posts from the Carnival by clicking on the Carnival image above or by clicking here.
