We're expecting our 3rd in May, and while I am so thankful to not have to buy an entirely new wardrobe (3rd girl) or crib or furniture, there are some things we do need.
I didn't use bottles at all with our 2nd and discarded all the regular plastic bottles we had with #1 b/c of the BPA. Due to stuff going on in our lives, it will be necessary for someone else to feed this baby pumped milk sometimes, so I'm looking for glass bottle recommendations. There are SO MANY out there...are they basically the same? Does your usually-breastfed baby need the 8oz size ever...and if so, at what age? I know kids are ALL different, but an age range would be awesome.
ALSO - we make our own detergent (thanks to Pinterest! haha) and I've purchased a few Bumis and FuzziBuns to use. Do any of you have experience cleaning cloth diapers with homemade detergent? Do you still need to strip the diapers? We use vinegar and essential oil for fabric softener and those felted wool balls in the dryer...I don't THINK those things leave a residue, but am I wrong?
Thanks so much!!! I really appreciate any input you have!
