My dd was always in sposies, so this will be my first cd baby. My midwife suggested (on my homebirth supply list no less) that I'll need to use sposies on the baby for the first week postpartum due to the meconium poops. Is that true? I was kind of hoping to jump right in with the cd and not give dh any chance to remember the convince ( <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/rolleyes.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="rolleyes">: ) of sposies. But I don't want to stain my stash either. I can't use sun as a stain remover as it rains 90% of the time here.<br><br>
TIA<br><br>
Thanks

Nah, don't sweat it. You could cut up some liners from a flannel receiving blanket and use them inside the dipe and just pitch 'em after the babe is through the mecomium. I found that breastfeeding poop stained much worse than mecomium anyway.<br><br>
But you absolutely dont have to use sposies <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/rolleyes.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="rolleyes">:

I think the only real reason to use them is if you are very tired or sore from the delivery and have not much help to wash the dipes. I'll probably use them because it's going to be dh and I only, no family support. Dh tries to be helpful but he has a real hard time multi-tasking and anyway I don't trust him to wash MY diapers. lol! I'll also be dealing with some major breast issues until I get my milk supply under control.<br><br>
You'll get some sposies for free if you deliver at the hospital so no need to go out and buy some unless you think you might want them.<br><br>

my sil just had a baby a few weeks ago, and she used washclothes the first week or so. she didn't care about stianing them, and they pee so little amount-wise that they worked great! Even the infant prefolds seem to swim on babies those first few days and weeks!
