...we forgot, and left all our cloth diapers at home! But dh was able to come back and get them, so she only had to wear 1 hospital disposable. She's been in Kissaluvs fitteds ever since...heck, we have enough of them!! and she hasn't started peeing or pooping a lot yet. A variety of covers. Dh, who is doing more of the changing than I am, doesn't like the Proraps because he says they leave red marks, he doesn't like the fleece because of compression, and he doesn't like the wool because it's cumbersome. For most of today she has been comfy in a froggie print BSWW. Dh just said a little while ago that we ought to start putting prefolds on her, so tomorrow is a new day. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngbiggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="orange big grin"> She ended up being pretty small so she may fit into the newborn sizes for a while.<br><br><a href="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/showthread.php?t=361169" target="_blank">Link to birth story</a>

Congrats on the new arrival! (and good choice of name! It has been serving me very well for 31 years now!)<br><br>
I'm so happy that your little one has arrived. That's an awesome birth story too.<br><br>
GREAT work Mama! (My DW had a few stitches after our daughter was born. She felt much better after a few days. Within a week she said that things were much, much better. In the meantime, stay in bed, get used to nursing, get your DH to bring you anything you need and get him to do all the laundry! That was my job and it was so good to be able to do something so practical to help!)<br><br>
Reading your birth story made me relive our daughter's birth. Such GOOD memories! Thanks for sharing!

Congrats, We love cloth dipes! I wish we started right when he was born. I am happy that Dh is great with them.. My DH is a diaper dummy. LOL he is not good with them, but he is still a great Daddy and not home too much, so I do not mind doing all the diapering etc, so he has time to play with Aidan.

She had her first big pee early this morning, followed by her first big poop a few hours later. I'm so relieved it shows there's something going in <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/winky.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Wink">. The KLs held the poop nicely, but in my first-time fumbles I got it all over the cover (white BSWW) anyway. She's in a WeeBees nylon side-snap cover now. Still haven't put her in a prefold. Maybe next diaper change. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/love.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="love">

Congratulations! I love your birth story! I'm glad it worked out. For me, the stitches were the worst part of the whole experience. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol"> But it wasn't so bad after about a week, and then they fell out a couple weeks later.<br><br>
Too funny about forgetting the diapers, but I'm glad you're enjoying your stash! You'll get better at keeping poopy off the covers during a change. It just takes lots of practice, which I know you'll get in the next few days! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngbiggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="orange big grin"><br><br>
