Introducing myself!

Hello everyone! I'm about to post a question, so I thought I'd introduce myself first!

My name is Annette, my son's name is Aden and he was born 1/15/04 via c-section after 24 hours of horrible induced labor. We basically went down the check list of What Not To Do and had every medical intervention I didn't want but my doctor thought I needed. Nursing got off to a rough start due to Hospital Policies but we're a happy nursing pair now with no plans of quitting anytime soon.

DH and I live in Houston with Aden, Piglet the Chihuahua & Ginger the cat. We have been married for 7 years. DH isn't crunchy at all, but he doesn't mind that I am (and getting more so all the time!). He basically does what I say is right. Gotta love it!
(I love the smilies on this board!) I wear the baby, our stroller is my shopping cart, the crib is Aden's "Playscape" for while I'm folding diapers and he sleeps with my boob in his mouth at night.

I discovered cloth while I was pregnant and was fascinated by all the choices and CUTE diapers available and quickly became an addict! Now I buy and sell diapers like some people do Stocks. Hee! I'm excited to join you all!

Now I'm gonna go post my question cuz I need HELP!

Ooo, thanks for asking! I Just love to talk about my diapers! Hee! I started out with Kissaluvs size 0 when Aden was born, those worked great for us when he was tiny. I moved on to Fuzzi Bunz smalls until his chubby thighs outgrew them before his skinny waist. I also used Sugarpeas size 1s. I had some wool covers in the beginning but I decided I didn't like the bulk cuz I love to dress him up in cute outfits!
My favorite covers are Bummis pull on Whisper pants. I like the SIWW too, but mostly for night. It's so stiff to me during the day and seems to pinch his tummy.

Anyway, I sold off all my Kissaluvs, FBs and Sugarpeas and started buying new stuff a couple months ago. I got some Lily Bottoms AIOs and Bunny Hugs AIOs. I thought I'd like to use all AIOs, but now I'm getting back into loving fitteds with a cover again. I've got some Fun Organic cotton diapers that I LOVE, a couple of Growing Greens hemp diapers that are awesome, and 1 Cuddlebuns diaper that rocks. I've got more Cuddlebuns on the way now! I'm in LOVE with them! I love the velour on the inside too, it's so soft and dry feeling but still absorbent! Love that! I've also got a growing collection of Wonderoos. I love how trim they are for wearing underneath clothes. Plus DH will use those the most since they're easiest for him.

DH used to only put a sposie on Aden when he'd change him but I fixed that. No sposies in the house anymore! Heehee 9 times out of 10, when he changes a diaper, he will bring me Aden in a fitted that without a cover, but it's okay. At least he tries.

Next, I want to get my hands on a FCB diaper!

So much fun!

HI Annette!

|Now I buy and sell diapers like some people do Stocks.|

OMG...I love your sense of humor and I can SO relate! lol. I buy one kind of diaper, then discover i don't like them...Then I buy a bunch of others and the same thing happens. And so on, and so on. rofl.
I have an 18m old so I can't help ya out with a young one but I LOVE AIO's! Even if i had a newborn, i'd use AIO's. I'm hooked!
