In Reply to: Which type for a 2-year-old? posted by Cin on February 05, 2004 at 14:24:46:
I have mostly OS for my daughter, and she'll be 2 soon. She is becoming increasingly active at her diaper changes where some days I just give up and put Sandy's on her (I normally keep those for nighttime). So I would go with ToddlerEase for your 2 year old. I would go with Karen's estimate on the number of dipes. I can't guess because my daycare provider uses cloth :o)
I guess a lot depends on your finances as well. That was a large reason why we went with the OS. If I had to do it all over again (and had the cash), I think I would go with the Sandy's as they are great fitting and more absorbent.
: I have finally decided to switch to cloth diapers (I just found out what disposibles do to a landfill!) I ordered ME's intro offer, with the OS diaper, just to check the quality. Bit I'm wondering, if I like Me, what type of diaper to buy? My son has just turned two, and is not interested in toilet training. Should I get the large Sandy's, or go with the OS? (My son only weighs 28 lbs, so I don't think he need the ToddlerEase.)And how many should I buy, since he will have to stay in disposables at the baby-sitter's?
: I'm also expecting my second child in Aug, and looking for suggestions on which ME package to buy. I will be home for at least the first year of baby #2's life. And I'm leaning towards OS for him or her.
: BTW, can the kids "share" diapers? Is it sanitary to use clean diapers for one that are usually used for the other? Thanks for all your help.
