are there particular things you'd recommend getting or not? thanks!
Speaking of which, I should probably start knitting some "baby legs." Those are nice for when you want something on their legs but want to skip pants.
We CD'd both our other two kids and didn't have a problem with clothes fitting over the dipe ever. We used prefolds and a cover and then fitteds (Kissaluvs) with a cover.

And I LOVE a CD bubble butt. Gives you something to hold onto.

Like Emnic said it is hard to find the plain undershirts... but they are out there. I have ones with buttons which DH really liked because he was really nervous pulling anything over DDs head.

plus i got some of the plain snap gerber ones used at a consignment sale. thanks for the feedback ladies!
Now if I want to show off cute diaper fluff, then I love t-shirts as they get older. Especially in the summer
I've been hunting on Amazon.com and found a reasonably priced brand called lovable friends. The have tees, tanks, long sleeve, short etc in boy girl and neutral colors. They are super high quality, but about the same as Gerber or Carters you'd find in WalMart/Target. I still have some onesies because we are doing some disposables in the beginning and I have some Fuzzi Bunz we are going to use as well so there are times when I can just put on a onesie. It's super hot here so onesies or tee's are all we plan on using the first few months...well and some cute lightweight dresses since it IS our first girl
Hope that helps

All of our babe clothes were hand me downs or gifts. I didn't buy anything, so I never chose. The tees were nice; I may buy a pack for this new babe, come to think of it, since we had so few last time.
It's such a brief time, though. Thereafter I loved onesies as they stayed on. The bubble butt is cute, even with the cover sticking out weirdly on both sides.
Lovin' my four-pack: M, S, a different M, and me.

Hmmm, you just gave me an idea to cut all my onesies to t-shirts and just sew a little hem on them. Thanks!
we rarely used onesies with my cd/ec daughter -- we much preferred ts.
when wren was around 6 months the lovely kontessa (we are old nov07 ddc friends!) serged a bunch of her onesies into ts for us and that was wonderful too! kinda makes me want a serger.
