|Aimee I was going to ask about sizing...|
I'm interested in pocket dipes but I don't want to use the one size type. How long does an average baby fit into size small? I don't want to spend a ton on dipes that I'll only use for a couple of months, but I had no idea that a baby could stay in smalls until 8 months! Well, I did see one review where the baby jumped straight from small to large but I also heard they don't work as well if they don't fit right.
(I doubt too mnay do, but Theo is not that odd in his size or growth)
sizing...............the real answer sucks -- it all depends on your baby. and most diapers are difernt -- easpically WAHM diapers which is all i use.
My son came home at 5 pounds even -- he is just now 21 pounds at 19 monhts.
he wore smalls for 8 months, and is still in his Med (at 11 months of use), We are transitiong to larges, but he could easiy wear the med a while longer, i am doing it to now to buy then before the baby comes.
My sister just had a baby in eraly Feb and her girl was just shy of 9 pounds at birth and at 4 months was 19 pounds.
She is already in teh MEd diaspers now --
Small 8-16 lbs
Medium 13-25 lbs
Large 18-35 lbs
Sis' older boy Mas wore Med from Month 4 to almost his 2nd birthday....... which is longer than Theo has yet to spend in any one size
Sis' kids tend to get big fast them platue -- her son gained less than 1/2 a pound from 4.5 months to 12 months......so assumeing his sister does something like that, while she is in Med now at 4 months like her borther was, she will likely wear them a looooong time.
I know that Theo as a small child who grows slowly wears his loonger than most .. but i do not think he wears them that mucvh longer; and i he is not so small or so slow that there is a problem, thus other kids are like him, YK?.
haveing a small child, i was never happy with the One Size Fits All dipaers -- and I try to avoid anything too bulky too.
here is her link again
she is on vacation till July 25 -- they always take the month of July off. but she is fast at filling orders when she get back, and when she is working her turn around is awsome.
I wish you could come see them and how well they fit Theo. right how he is wearing both Med and Larges.
A lot of kids potty learn right out of the med.
I would start with a few med and a smaller number of samlls (maybe 12) cuz the baby WILL wear them, not like some on the new borns ones out there that a baby (like my sister's) come home too big for
then when you see how big your baby is and how fast they gorw -- you can either buy more small, or start buyuing med.
One thing i love about Sarah, i buy 3 or 5 at a time.....then the next month when i have money again i do the same.......not like some of the stuff you have to buy in sets or pacakages or whatever.
DH sdmiled nicely at my CD plans, and still kinda does. he doens't really care -- most of the parenting education, research and decision making is left up to me, he gets upset if i do not ask for him rubber stamp -- but even he admit he just don't like to be caught off gaurd if someone says somehting to him, he admits it is a rubber stamp ...... and since he changes maybe 2 diapers a week and never does the packing of the diaper bag, the laundry or anything else.......my how to take care of Theo notes for when the baby comes are for him too
.......... he doens't care one way or the other. he shut up about price when Theo wore the samlls so long. now when i point out cause savings, esp with a new on one the way, he just says "yes yes yesyes"
I worked up a page on the cost saving of CD for us personally -- I can PM it to anyone who would like to see it. There are a lot of them out there, but i did a rought one for us .....
