Ethan's First Camping Trip

*Update* My friend Carly from Obsessed Cloth Diapering Mama reminded me that I didn't write about using cloth diapers on our camping trip! We did and it was very easy. I took Flip covers, gdiapers, a few BG's and my new Trim from Tiny Tush (Don't forget to enter my Giveaway!). We used the Trim overnight, the Flips w/cloth inserts for the day and the BG's for traveling (it was a 3 hour trip one way). I packed my wet bag for the dirties and had no issues with smell.

The only issue we came across was what to do with the poop!!?? Do you put it in the trash bag, keep it in the diaper until you get home or toss it out in the field? Ethan only pooped once while we were there and it was a massive one so I tossed it. We weren't close to any water source so I don't think it will cause any harm. Eli said he would like to use disposable inserts the next time so we can just put the whole thing in the trash.

Overall a successful CDing Camping Trip!
We just got back from our first camping trip as a family! We had so much fun even though it rained on us over night.
Ethan loved walking around the camp checking every thing out.




Then he found the best part of camping: the food! Well, he liked the wheels on the ice chest.





Eli had fun building the camp fire. All those years of boy scouts paid off!


All the wild flowers were blooming. Everything was so green and bright. We went on our nature walk towards evening so these flowers were closing for the night. It was raining the next morning so there wasn't enough light to get any good photos.
Ethan did wake in the night but we were able to get him calmed down and nursed back to sleep. He woke the next morning happy to find himself between Mom and Dad!
