Cloth Diapering??? Whats in your stash?

post #1 of 19
Thread Starter 

 Right now i have all of my dd's prefolds and a few pockets, Im hoping to just have to buy covers, and a few other pockets for nighttime, maybe some cute prefitteds.

 

 Whats on your CD wishlist?

I jumped into cding with my last baby. It only lasted a few months as my dh was so not supportive. I'm going to be more diligent this time and stick with it. I don't have any newborn stuff, so I'm hoping to start buying as soon as  I am confident this little on is gonna stick!

I actually have no newborn supplies, because DD was only CD'ed after two months. And she was a chunk, so I was able to put her right into medium and OS pockets and covers.

 

I have heard that prefolds or flats are best for newborns, but I'm nervous about breastmilk poo explosions, yech. I think I may do some fitteds from Green Mountain and have MIL knit some new tiny covers. Hopefully that will contain everything.

 

Other than that, we are set for the older months I think.

I've got heaps of newborn prefolds and Bummis covers somewhere in the basement. DS used them 5 years ago so I'm curious if the elastic is still good or not. I passed all my BumGenius diapers along to my cousin. Her son is just about potty trained so hopefully I'll get those back with some life in them. If not, more BGs and most likely some FuzziBuns are in my future. DH has no objection to changing those so they are the base of my stash.

I have non-stop cloth diapered for years and don't need anything new. Maybe by then my son will need a couple new covers, but surely nothing for the new one. We use prefolds, wool, BSWW and Thirsties. I just recently bought a diaper sprayer and am not sure why it took me so long.

I have yet to invest in a sprayer, we've just been dunking what can't be knocked directly off. Is it really amazing? How forceful is the spray? I have to admit, I'd rather not have to do the dunk and swoosh!

The sprayer is a MUST!  I think I found the directions to make one online somewhere, and DH got all the parts at the hardware store for about $15.  It makes things soooo much easier - I can't imaging not having it.  :)

 

I'll probably get some new covers for my stash, but my mom bought me these really cute all-in-one diapers for a newborn that were just adorable.  I'll have to check who they were made by so I can get a few more.

I use flushable biodegradable liners.  I love them, you don't get sprayers in the UK, so i just peel off the poop in the liner, dump and flush, and wash the nappy on a 60C cycle.

 

My stash is a few itty bitty d'lishes and a ton of totsbots bamboozles.  They only fit from 10lbs so i tend to use disposables for about 3 weeks.  

 

At the moment the main thing in my stash is DD2's 23mo butt!  I doubt she'll be TT'd by January, i'm hoping to do it next summer, and i'm hoping i can get through until then with my existing nappies, just doing more washes!

My sprayer is one of the well known types. Don't remember which. The water pressure is adjustable. My kids always managed to poop AROUND the liners. They helped, but were not the answer for us.

My medium-to-larges got lost the last time we moved...so my 16mo is in disposables. but I do have my whole newborn stash in a box in the laundry room right now. mostly prefolds, a few flats, a few fitteds. Lots of wool that doesn't get used nearly as much as I want it to, and some thirsties duo covers, size one.

I'm starting from scratch here-all baby stuff thrown in the wrong pile when we moved two states away...so we have nothing. Is Nicki's Diapers a good place to order from?

I mainly use fuzzi bunz, but also have some prefolds and wool.

We have mainly BumGenius 4.0, with a few of the Bummis TotsBots EasyFit.  I LOVE them and would like to get more for the next baby. 

 

We had done a newborn rental of Kissaluvs fitteds and covers with DS, and I felt decidedly meh about them.  I need to do some research in the next few months re. better newborn options.

Ha, mine manage that too.  All i can say is you have to feel REALLY sorry for my washing machine... whistling.gif

I really want to cloth diaper this baby, I tried with my DS but we have to haul our own water and I was using like 200-300 gallons a week trying to cloth diaper so it just did not work out. We got a new washer though so I am really hoping that I will get to use cloth this time around.

DD is in large gDiapers now, and we have a whole stash of newborn prefolds and "neutral" small gDiaper covers.  We should be all set for prefolds, but if it's a boy we'll have to get some more "boy colors" to fill out the cover stash :)  DH will certainly not put a boy in a pink or purple diaper!  I love that we spent a few hundred dollars at the beginning (most of which was on gift cards from baby showers!) and haven't bought diapers since, I can't imagine buying and tossing so many disposables!

I need to dig through and see what I still have left from my other babes.  I know I gave a lot away after DS2 was born, so I'm not sure what I have left.  I know I have a handful of Kissaluv 0s left, but I think I gave many away and those were my faves.  I have a couple NB sizes, but DD1 (10 lbs) didn't fit into them at all and DD2 and DS2 only fit into them for a couple of days.  I'm knitting some new longies, this will be the first time I've had a winter baby.

 

My size medium stash is really depleted.  I have several dozen size medium FBs that I loved, but I bought them in December 2004 when DS1 was a few months old and they've been in use every. single. day. since then.  I can't complain because I got a TON of use out of them, but now the elastic is shot and some of them are wicking.

In no way do I understand getting excited by what are essentially rags that my kids pee and poop on redface.gif

I just got rid of most of our cloth diapers as we were "done".  We do early potty learning too but def. need some diaps  and I think the easiest are the kissaluvs for newborns somebody once told me that you can rent them online because they grow out of them so quickly.  I think I am going to look into that.
