Have you looked into using Charlie's soap (it's a detergent though) because it rinses completely out. I think some stink is from pee activating the dried in laundry detergent.
How many times do I need to wash hemp to get my new prefolds/doublers ready to use? Whenever I've prepped cotton diapers in the past, I've always washed and dried about 3 cycles.

Do you think that letting other people (other than mom, dad and siblings) hold a newborn is stressful for him? This is something I've wondering about for years.

So that makes for an ugly situation as well. You...
[QUOTE=andrea Or are only rude size comments inappropriate towards larger people? Double standard anyone?[/QUOTE] Uhhh, never said I'm overweight. I have a medium build. The weight comments have to do with my pregnant belly. Personally I just don't think it's appropriate to make judgments about someone's looks unless it's a compliment but even those are iffy.
Know what bugs me, "How are you feeling?" I know they mean well but it's like pregnancy is an illness.
28 weeks today.
I took it with my second and found it lacking. The scripts are very short. But we did not end up using it during labor anyhow. LOL It was very very expensive too.

I tried to bring this up for the first time this pregnancy last night to Dh and he got really annoyed and blew me off. Grrr. I just asked when he thought he'd like to have visitors after the birth. And then he said, "Oh no, not this again!" And acted all irritated and...
