:happy birthday: Sounds like a fast labor. Hugs to you and your little one, mama!
I'm so glad to hear from all the new mamas! It sounds like you are all doing great.
Az - hang in there mama! Sending you no baby today vibes. Maybe call the bc and see what they would recommend you do in the event you do go into labor?
Kathy- do you still have help while dh is gone? You sound like you're doing fine, but it still must be hard with such little ones.
Lisa- I'm terrible about cords. My kid's always take about two weeks to fall off. I still put the powdered goldenseal on them at every change, and just fold the diaper down a bit away from the stump. But I sill give them baths and stuff with it. I figure that nature probably didn't design them to be so fiddled with.
Jess- yep, you can put clothes over them. Some people prefer for them to wear those little kimono shirts, or a tee, as opposed to onesie before the cord falls off.
Karen - what is dh thinking? That is so not cool.
I can't believe our little ones are almost a month old! Its going by so fast. It makes me really sad. They are still so tiny, but the first month is so wonderful and precious, I always hate when its over.
I'm not liking my hotsling very much. Nothing especially wrong with it, per say, its just that baby doesn't really like it, and it doesn't fit quite right. I had originally wanted a KKACP, but for some reason got the hotsling. Now I'm kicking myself
Maybe I'll just go get one today and stop whining about it
Not as comfy as fleece, but nice nonetheless.
So, total fluff question- What diapers did everyone end up going with? I saw some of Jess's stash (jealous) and I saw some of Stacy's on the TP (again jealous) . We are using boring old indian prefolds for now, with polar babies covers and wool soakers. I have lots of larger sized fitteds...but I'm not sure I'll use them. I kinda like these prefolds.
