I am taking part in the Second Annual Flats and Handwashing Challenge hosted by Dirty Diaper Laundry. For 7 days I will be using only flat cloth diapers and handwashing them in an effort to prove that cloth diapering can be affordable and accessible to all. You can learn more about the rules and why this challenge was started by visiting the announcement post. This year there are over 450 participants from all over the world!
Today is Day 6 of the Flats and Handwash Challenge. Today I'd like to talk about traveling with flats and hand washing. We traveled for the Memorial Day weekend to a cabin with my in-laws and drove for 6 1/2 hours to get there. (The drive itself is about 5 hours, but we made a couple of stops for the baby). Sprinkled throughout this post are pictures from today on our trip.
While finishing our packing on Friday morning, we let MissE run around naked for a while and then in a coverless flat. We started the drive with a large flat in an Airplane Fold with a smaller one padfolded inside, then graduated to using two padfolded flats inside the cover for the rest of the changes of the drive. When we arrived, she used one flat in an Airplane fold fastened with Boingo's for the rest of the changes of the day under wool bloomers.
