vacation diapering

recently, we went away for an extended weekend with nate. we had been searching for an eco-friendly diapering option while away from home and we finally found something that is a great alternative to regular disposable diapers. grobaby offers a travel system using biodegradable soaker pads in combination with their diaper covers. their "bio soaker pads" are made with biodegradable and compostable materials. i believe that the soaker pad itself will completely biodegrade within 50 days. their covers also dry super fast, which make it a really great travel option. we took 2 covers with us and 20 bio soaker pads with us for the 4 days that we were away. all you do is lay the soaker pad in the cover and then fasten it shut. for diaper changes, you just remove the soiled soaker pad and replace with a fresh one. if the cover isn't dirty, you can just reuse it. we even used this on nate for overnights and it did not leak. we had the second cover as a back-up during the day in case the first one got soiled, but the soaker pad was so absorbent that we didn't need to change the cover until the next day. so i would handwash the cover each night and hang it to dry. i think it would only take an hour or two to dry, but we left it for overnight just in case. right now all grobaby products are on sale as they're renaming their product line, so it's a great time to try them! we bought ours from natasha at so green baby. she's super nice and helpful.
