I bought 4 wraps, bummi super whisper, bummi super snap, bummi cotton and a Litewrap. My favorite is the super whisper, and i also like the super snap. The bummi cotton is sooo adorable (red w/cows on it) but it is useless! It is so much smaller seeming and doesn't wrap around enough, the diaper sticks out everywhere. The litewrap is nice cuz its got the extra leg area that is tighter than the rest of the cover, but it is soooo big, that the whole thing kind of sags. Maybe i could get a smaller one of those and try it. I will buy more of the super whispers. I got a dozen DSQ Prefolds, which seemed soooo huge and thick, but once you get them on, they are good. I haven't seen much going into the wrap, until this morning's first pee. I did buy some Fleece liners too. We don't have any extra $$ so i was trying to skimp everwhere, especially since i didn't even tell dh how much everything cost was like $82. I will sneek in a couple of more wraps, but as it is i've used the same wrap the whole day, and plan to wash the diapers every night or every other night so they don't build up like the rest of my laundry does!!
The thing that is a pain is that now i have to go back to using the changing station in her room, i can't just change her anywhere i am on the floor or couch, etc. Also, since DH hasn't been schooled on it yet, i have to do all the changing myself, the whole washing the diapers is more work, but i am committed to giving it a good try, so hopefully it is just something i'll get used to. Plus, like i said in my pp, i've never had any probs with my pampers or luvs. and Chloe's already started to get her first rash today, i had to put her in a sposie for bed tonight so i could use some desitine... the insturctions that i got w/my diapers from Green Mountain said i shouldn't use desitine on the cloth dipes.
Ali - That info that you are getting about breastmilk being better in bottles is perposterous!!!!! (sp?)... I can't believe anyone would say that!! Obviously it is better coming out fresh. Anytime it sits around in a bottle it is loosing nutrients and stuff. When you freeze and thaw it, it looses more. It is still better than formula, but not better than right from the "tap". Besides, why wouldn't one WANT to nurse a baby instead of bottle feeding them?? I too would consider a new ped!!
April - hysterical!!!! I don't know how you were able to bring yourself to get the bug out yourself!!! EWWW, why do they put everything in their mouths!!!!!!! Chloe eats every speck of everything from the floor, she's eatten enough milkbone pieces to feed a small litter of puppies for life!!
Eman's mom - I hope you are all feeling better really soon!! I hate when babies get sick. you feel so helpless!!! Poor things!!
MamaP - soooo happy to hear you are sooo happy today!!!!
Life is fun w/kids/family, isn't it!! I LOVE being a mom!!
DH has the gout (a joint disease), and he was out sick from work yesterday and decided to take today too since he could get away with it, but his knee was feeling better. Anyhow, he got us egg sandwiches for breakfast today, then took us out to lunch to Bertucci's (a brick oven pizza place), THEN took us to dinner to a restaurant!! 3 Meals out today!!!! He's probably dying inside thinking of all the work he has to do to make up for the $$ But i don't think i've ever had three out meals in one day before!! (it will be Tunafish & PB&J for the rest of the weekend!!) I'm living the high-life today!!!
