wow- thank you to those of you who commented on my first diaper post. i appreciate the advice, and the acceptance into the fold! ok- i figured out my leaking problem. well, i didn't figure it out, the lovely leah at http://www.austinbabystore.com/ figured it out. i was trying to go way low-key with the prefolds, just folding them 3 times, stuffing them in the cover and we're off. she informed me that this wouldn't work for an active 2 year old. she then showed me how to do a couple of folds and then introduced me to a snappi to hold it all together. i had seen snappies online, but i wasn't sure how they'd work. they basically have little gripper teeth and hold on like crazy. so i picked up a couple of those, some fleece liners ("to wick the moisture away from the baby") and 2 fitted diapers. I LOVE THE FITTED DIAPERS!!! they are easy and non-leaking- perfect! however, buddy seems to have problems climbing, running, and basically walking normally in them due to the bulk. we are all on a learning curve here! i also, somehow, came home with a new potty chair for buddy that looks an awful lot like a riding toy...hmm...how did that happen?
here is the diaper system i'm using
