Ok, I'm diving in - this week for sure!
I have decided to go with the wahm who now also has a brick and mortar store. http://www.extraordinarybabyshoppe.com
A while back, I ordered a variety of different cds to be able to see/feel them for myself.
I was going to go to http://www.diaper-eez.com/
, where Shannon and dh got such excellent customer service, but somehow this weekend the information clicked, and I feel confident going with the options available through my original source, even though she is far away (a 6-hour drive). I may need to drop by Shannon's to get a demo on the folding, but if not, there are people in town I can call (the childbirth educator/doula who ran my prenatal class, the LLL leader..).
So, I will go over some questions I still have with Susie at extraordinarybabyshoppe, but I think this is what I've decided to start with:
2-3 dozen CPF, infant size
2 small aristocrat soakers
4 nb covers - Bummis and/or ProWraps
2 kissaluvs nb
Once babe is here, I will see if I want more of the kissaluvs nb or Wonderoos, for the nb stage.
I will likely wait until babe is bigger for a big investment in fitteds or pockets. Plus, I imagine, larger CPFs. I'll see how the ones I have work. Currently, for trial, I have:
1 Wonderoos one-size pocket
1 kissaluvs fitted size 1 (babies 10-25 lbs)
1 Sugar Peas 2-size diaper, size 1 (Babies 6-20 lbs.)
1 Med Sugar Peas snap-in diaper
1 Med Sugar Peas wool flannel cover (14 - 24 lbs.)
1 Med Sugar Peas wool jersey cover (14 - 24 lbs.)
1 Motherease sample (dipe, cover, doubler)
2 wahm (ecomum) hemp/cotton fitted diapers
4 wahm (ecomum) hemp/cotton CPFs
4 wahm (ecomum) hemp/cotton doublers
2 kissaluvs doublers
