I have been changing diapers every day now for 3 and a half years. For 4 and a half of those months I was changing two kids diapers every day. Before that I changed quite a few diapers between babysitting and my nieces and nephews. But even with all that diapering experience I still use tons of wipes and make a mess with the poopies! I don't know what my problem is, but I can't get it. I use at least 3 wipes per poopy diaper- and that is just for a small, easily cleaned one. For the more disgusting, messier versions it's usually 5 or 6 or more. And lots of times I get it on my hands, on Grants legs, his feet and occasionally on the blanket underneath him or his clothes. I remember my neighbor changed a poopy diaper in record time and I commented on how fast she was. She replied that it was even a 3 wiper one- as if that didn't occur very often. I didn't confess that every poopy diaper change in my experience is a 3 wiper! Miles has it down to 1 or 2 wipes and maybe I should take a lesson from him. Those wipes aren't cheap after all!
