But that's not what you asked
Does anyone here remember how long the meconium stage lasts? Honestly, I didn't change any meconium diapers last time - my dh and the nurses took care of it at the hospital and then I think it was done by the time we got home. But I can't really remember...
A doula who married a cop & became a mama to 3 boys: G 12/22/00, my rainbow baby B 2/2/07 and L 2/10/10 my CBA2V baby, waiting for my little caboose late February 2013 & always remembering my two angels 2006 & 2012.
We have some 7th gen sposies for the first week so we won't have to worry about laundry. I think it will depend on how I feel. I have heard that meconium comes off easier/stains less than breastmilk poo though.
I thought about flushable liners initially for my cloth diapers, but I think I may just use poly fleece. I also got a package of newborn disposables in case I just don't feel like messing with any of it postpartum (which was the case last time.) It would make it easier while I'm resting for the midwives or whoever else to diaper the baby without me having to explain 3 different diapering systems in the stash from a room over, lol.
Just to add, my DH doesn't even want to do sposies on vacation. I was on the fence as we're going to stay with DH's parents in Spain this summer (the baby will be 4 or 5 months). I was shocked when he said he wanted to CD! He said switching would be too traumatic for the baby who has only known cloth. I really love this man!

So, no 'sposies here.
Happily married, busy mom to a houseful :-)
Expecting again early Oct 2014!
We have a shower sprayer, sorta like that toilet one, but you put it in your shower instead. It is in addition to your shower head/one and its very powerful, not all week like a normal shower heads. They sell them at homedepot for cleaning pets and stuff, looks like the ones you'd put in your sink with a on/off handle bar. (Totally OT, but it was nice for postpartum because I could get hot water from it and use it instead of the peribottles they give you). We would clean each poop diaper this way with cold water and than in the the diaper pail until we washed it 1-2 days later. This may be why we don't get the stains? Don't know?!?! But I don't remember it being too bad dealing with diapers at all at first... and baby poo ... I think I like it better than this toddler poo .
