PS: ResearchParent: I live in San Diego.  Didn't think we had any other SoCal moms on here.  Cool.  You have experience with our climate and the changes, then.  Tell me more! </p>

<p>On amazon you can get some super cute Hudson Organic onesies! They are decently priced too! <a href="http://www.amazon.com/gp/redirect.html?ie=UTF8&linkCode=ur2&camp=1789&creative=9325&tag=motheringhud-20&location=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.amazon.com%2FHudson-Baby-Organic-Bodysuit-Months%2Fdp%2FB002H9W0QO%2Fref%3Dsr_1_1%3Fie%3DUTF8%26qid%3D1389492088%26sr%3D8-1%26keywords%3Dhudson%2Borganic" rel="norewrite" target="_blank">http://www.amazon.com/Hudson-Baby-Organic-Bodysuit-Months/dp/B002H9W0QO/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1389492088&sr=8-1&keywords=hudson+organic</a></p>

<p>For summer I also loved the short rompers. Gap makes cute terry cloth ones and I like the Gymboree ones as they are bit softer than Carter's fabric. Yes you need to get it over baby's head once, but for diaper changes it's only 4 easy snaps. They are nice if you want something other than a sleeper for the first week or so too because there's nothing tight around baby's tummy while the cord stump is still on.</p>

<p>Thanks for the tip.  I'll admit I'm a little nervous about these because you have to get it over the head, but they're so popular that something must be great about them! <br>
I happen to have the ones you linked to on Amazon already on my registry.  Smart minds think alike, <img alt=":wink" src="http://files.mothering.com/images/smilies/winky.gif" style=""> but it's nice to have the confirmation. </p>

<p>I'm not putting too much on my registry in the way of linens and layette, because I know people love to give these things as gifts. I'm hoping to get some "Purity" tees from Tea Collection in each size in the coming months; I love the way they feel and they last for AGES. Plus I've already bought a couple cute things that I couldn't pass up. We'll be CDing, so I anticipate I won't want a ton of onesies past the 3 month age because we'll be using wool longies and shorties a lot. </p>
<p> </p>
<p>So far I have already stocked up:</p>
<p>-3 organic gowns; one 0-3 mo, two 3-6 mo</p>
<p>-2 or 3 footed sleepers in newborn and 0-3mo size</p>
<p>-1 organic bamboo onesie in each size: 0-3, 3-6, 9, 12mo; these are printed with beautiful art and I love themmmm</p>
<p>-baby gap triple roll socks, in 3mo and 6mo; these are the only ones I can ever get to stay on little baby feet</p>
<p>-a few pairs of merino wool (very thin) karate pants in 0-3 and 3-6 mo sizes</p>
<p>-a couple hats, some merino wool, others cotton</p>
<p>-a bunch of wool shorties and covers</p>
<p> </p>
<p>-4 A+A muslin cotton swaddles</p>
<p>-1 hand-knit by me baby alpaca thick blanket</p>
<p>-1 A+A "dream" blanket (4-layer) in bamboo</p>
<p>-2 organic cotton / sandwiched PUL crib-sized mattress savers</p>

<p>Yup.  I seriously need to edit the registry/ies.  I'm so confused.</p>
<p>Is a receiving blanket the same as a swaddle blanket?<br>

<p>Well, kinda. Swaddling blankets tend to be larger and slightly stretchy, either made of knit cotton or cotton / bamboo muslin.  The Aden + Anais (A+A) ones are like, 40"x40". Often "receiving blankets" are flannel or knit cotton, but smaller. Can be used as swaddles, but really only for the first few weeks. But people LOVE giving them as gifts, and they are nice to keep around for a layer between baby and whatever, as really large burp clothes, sun shades, whatever. But I wouldn't bother registering for them....I have never seen a mom NOT get a ton at a baby shower. </p>

<p>What are the alternatives to a baby shower?  Don't get me wrong.  At this point, I'm all about getting the "stuff".  Having a party, though, is sounding more and more awkward.  Different friends, different timing. We may end up having to have two or three and I'm not a fan of parties considering I never know if I'll be up for it and everyone wears gross scents that make me sick. <br>
I wasn't always such a stick-in-the-mud.  I used to host all the time - BYOW(hatever)s.<br>
My, oh my, how quickly the sentiments change during pregnancy. </p>

<p>I love rompers for my toddlers. I had a bunch of them the summers my 3rd was turning 1 and 2. We sort of use elimination communication and in the house, I'd often leave them unsnapped and either bottomless or in a diaper without a cover for fast changes. I mostly just get Carter's ones unless I find fancier ones used. I use the long ones too despite all the snaps because I'm a sucker and think they're cute.</p>

<p>We use a lot of crib-sized mattress protector things. Anything to separate a wet kid from the mattress. Useful when they're tiny and again later while potty training.</p>

<p>Me too! :) Ten snaps to change a diaper is a bit crazy but I love how they look (and the fact that only one item of clothing needs to be clean to have an outfit). We do lots of singing and counting to 10 while changing diapers all winter long <img alt=":2whistle" src="http://files.mothering.com/images/smilies/2whistle.gif" style=""></p>

<p>I wonder if it's a mom of boys thing. There aren't as many fun little boys' clothes, so we take what we can get. Rompers only make sense to me for walking, not-potty-trained kids, so they're a short-lived stage that I take advantage of.</p>
