Why I need diapers with snaps...

Most of the time I use infant size prefolds with a Thirsties cover on Rachael. I save our fancy (one size pockets) diapers for outings and night time. All but one of her diapers/covers have a velcro closure....

It's pretty warm around here these days since we don't have a/c in our home - we are currently at 80ยบ inside - so there are days when Rachael only wears a diaper around the house. I don't find this to be an issue yet because she is only 10 months old, however, she has been playing with the velcro lately, so I'm not sure how long this will last!

Anyway, I put her in the highchair for a snack while I was preparing lunch a couple days ago and all she had on was her prefold and cover. I heard her fiddling with the velcro, but was totally surprised when I pulled back the highchair tray and found this:


She had completely unfastened the diaper!! I'm thankful she was sitting and couldn't actually get out of it (even though it was dry), but I'm thinking I will have to start actually dressing her during the day if this continues.

LOL! Mine did this with their disposables. I think it's the age! No need to dress her all the way though! I'm sure you have dresses with the little bloomers? I just stuck those on the girls when they were that little and nothing else! Works, out of sight, out of mind!
