Yep, MarthaV, back in the day
we just used cloth diapers. Smaller pieces of fabric could be, um, missed by some of the more, um, energetic episodes
. And they give you room to fold over and use another piece and/or wipe something else up with it. And can be cleaned the same as other laundry.
Note to new moms: if you're NOT breastfeeding, DON'T wash the baby's white shirts, etc in bleach. The bleach reacts with the iron in the formula and causes a permenent yellow stain. Just the opposite of what you were attempting to accomplish. Not sure about breastmilk, likely not an issue. Oxyclean-type products don't do this.
Now, back to your regularly sceduled spit-up discussion.
