    Saw these at Whole Foods recently, I think they may sway us from getting a diaper service.

    http://www.gdiapers.com/

    About $20 for a starter kit, then about $13 for packs of 40 diapers.

    Diapers services are about the same cost, but you have to keep a big pail of stanky diapers in your house up to a week before they pickup. NOT nice in the summer.

    No basement, no freezer, and we get up to 109 degrees in the summer here.






    Oh wait, you mean that's where to keep the babies. Duh. Sorry.

    Set up a compost bin in your back yard. Put a little clothes line above the compost bin and hose off the soiled diapers into the bin before putting them in a bucket.

    You can then utilize the baby poop to help your garden.

    Get a dog and don't use diapers. They will eat up any turds the kid drops and lick their asshole clean.

    Heh, there's a bit of truth to that...works as a great form of birth control too. My youngest sister is 16 years younger than I am. I got more than enough time in helping take care of her when she was younger. Although most people who see me with kids think I'd make a great parent, I have absolutely no desire to have children, even now, 14 years after she was born.

    swishstick?

    So these won't work at a public toilet unless you're carrying the crapstick?

    We'll probably just get several months supply at CostCo at a time.

    So weird, I was driving the other day thinking about how many diapers we throw away. I thought there had to be a better way... now I'm looking through all these links post above and I'm kind of upset I didn't know about any of this stuff.

    I think they supply that considering most home plumbing is pretty weak. I'd think that most public toilets would take these whole with no issues.


    In fact I think my home toilet could handle these, it's not weak at all.

    Check the little video they put up about how the gdiapers decompose next to plastic diapers. Drastic.

    We've looked into services and other green solutions. The one we found works best is buy whatever is cheapest, we are using a lot of them. We do have a service that comes and picks up the used ones, along with the rest of our trash, every other Wednesday. So convenient!

    If you haven't gotten the 16 year old out of diapers by now, then the environmental impact has already been done.

    <edit> our son was 14 when our daughter was born. It is kinda strange.
