I got my first diaper purchase for this baby in the mail this week! I got an amazing deal on 13 xs Thirsties covers, and she threw in some extras, too, which was super sweet.
I also won a FFS lottery on HC for a beautiful newborn fitted
. Its so cute, I just keep it out and pet it.
DP just died laughing yesterday when he saw the huge envelope of covers in the mail. He sees a pocket occasionally go through the wash here for my not-quite-completely-PL'd-toddler but he's not crazy about the idea. He said he would be happy to use cloth, but if he had to change a poopy one he was throwing the entire diaper away. I guess I better stick to mostly prefolds.
I tried all the one size pockets out there when my ds was about a year old, and BGs were the only ones I liked. I think I'm going to buy a new stash of those for this baby, but I won't use them until she outgrows the newborn size because I hate the bulk.
I still have a few pair of knit nb longies left over from ds, but if its a girl I want to buy something girly. The small Loveybums
wool wraps were hands down my favorite cover with Henry, and I am pretty sure I still have two of those left, too. I loved those because I could throw them in the washing machine (not dryer) and they came so clean. I'm going to be looking for deals on those.
I'm planning to buy 36 GMD orange edge prefolds - I already have 2dz Thirsties infant and premium size, and 1dz GMD red edges. I was a prefold hoarder.
I am pretty sure I have a couple dz preemie PFs laying around somewhere, and I love those for doublers.
I really would like to have a dozen or so nb sized pockets for outings, I loved the old style xs FBs with Henry, but I just don't know yet if I want to spend the money. We'll see...
I'm trying to hold off another 3 weeks until I can go have an ultrasound and find out the gender before I buy anything else, but I am thinking I may just place my GMD prefold order today. I want some fluffy mail!
