I sooo don't mean that in a snarky way. I'm really curious what counts as "solids"
totally chew toy. charlie doesn't even have any teeth, so he's not getting anything except flavor
. if he had teeth/it was soft enough that he was getting something off of it, i'd consider it solids...
my sister uses charlie's, and she has to use a separate disinfectant. totally a hassle imo. most of the things i've read about ammonia say it's a problem w/ detergent and water level - just not getting clean or rinsing enough...lnf
, do you think that woman is looking for a story like mine? i planned a homebirth but was induced in the hospital. but i still consider myself a transfer because of my prenatal care being all HBMW, and all my prep, and the fact that both my MWs were at the hospital over the three days until charlie came, and had a lot to do with the birth going so well under the circumstances.snoopy
, if you were me, i'd run the washer hot, and empty at least once with the country save, in case there is build-up from other detergent that could be getting on the dipes. i was using a liquid detergent that is supposedly OK, but got bad stink after a couple of months. apparently for me i needed a powder. now i'm using rockin' green
(me too, me too), and the dipes smell clean after a rinse and before i've even used the soap! i run a full cycle with no soap (i have a front loader, so no good option for soaking), and then a full cycle w/ the rockin' green. it did take a few washes w/ the rockin' green before the diapers started coming out clean-smelling.
! so glad R did well in your class
. i think w/ a frontloader, my bag of rockin' green will last for almost 6 months, and that's washing prefolds and wipes every 2-3 days! totally worth it to me too.ericka
, SOOOO wonderful
, ditto TreefrogNYC
, glad to see you! i've added you!afm
, charlie has decide 3, 30-min naps are enough today, thank you very much...
