A trip to Abby's Lane

A few weeks ago, my friend, Amie, invited a few other cloth-diapering moms to her home to talk shop; as you may recall, Sammy is a super soaker and I've been having some trouble keeping him dry through the night. I thought I found a solution by putting him in a disposable, but that turned out to be only temporary as Sammy soon began soaking through those, too.  Through the course of the evening, it was mentioned that the cloth-diapering website, Abby's Lane, had recently opened an actual brick-and-mortar store in nearby Manassas.  I liked the idea of actually being able to see the different diapers in person and discuss their pros and cons with someone who knew what they were talking about, so I planned a trip while my mom was down visiting the week before last.




Row after row of just about every brand of cloth diaper currently on the market as far as the eye can see greeted me as I walked through the door--I was overwhelmed by all of the different options, not too mention the cuteness. The women who worked there were very friendly and extremely knowledgeable about all of the different products; they suggested several different night-time diapering solutions that would work with my current Fuzzi Bunz as well as some other things to try; I wound up going home with two Gen-Y covers, two Boori bamboo prefolds, a SuperDo insert, and a Joey Bunz insert.  I'm really looking forward to figuring out the combination that works best for Sammy, not too mention another trip back to Abby's Lane in the future; anyone want to come along?

{And not to beat a dead horse or anything, but Sammy and I would appreciate it if you could vote for our entry in the Paper Mama's Valentines challenge by clicking below--that is, if you haven't already done so! Thanks so much!}

I'd love to go. Not sure what my husband would say. You saw my stash ;)

This is awesome! Definitely going down there, Manassas is only about 90 minutes from here, so this place is totally on my "must visit" list!
