We were trying to have an UC birth- but when I decided that (after 39 hours) it may be time to try the hospital- DP went to take a shower as I got the stuff together we needed- Now, mind you I had washed and folded my dipes about a zillion time- lol.. so I go grab a bag and put a bunch of dipes in there a few snappies and head out to the hosiptal- needless to say Rainey did not have any clothes (from home) when she was born- I was so busy picking what dipes we should take- I FORGOT CLOTHES!
And the nurses loved my dipes
I felt like- if they see some really cute dipes they may be more apt to learning about cloth so I had to have my cutest ones
Also a OB nurse once told me that if I do have my baby at a hospital I should take my own dipes- there dipes are washed with very strong soap and it is hard on a babies skin- and really do you want the first dipe on your baby to be a hospital dipe? Also, the first poops are not bad at all- and the peel off if you get lucky :LOL And if they do stain, just put them in the sun- it will take it right off- we had no stains!
Congrats on the new little one- soon to be!
