I got my package from Goodmama yesterday, it was 5 prefolds and one Bummies Super Bright cover. I have to say, I am now a big fan.
After prepping the prefolds, I played around and tried on my teddy bear with the snappies. I REALLY like them, I like how versatile they are in terms of sizing and it’s nice and easy to put em on and cover em. I think I need to finish off my newborn stash with prefolds. I don’t have enough newborn diapers, especially if the 5 one size I have end up being to big for the first couple of months, then I will have to wash every single day, during a time when I didn’t really want to be washing every day. I think the easiest way to fix this is to get my hands like 10 more prefolds. The one’s I have I got for 2$ a piece from the Goodmama sale, I should have ordered more but just don’t have the cash right now.
I would love to get my hand’s on a couple more bummies style covers as well, I just don’t really the plain white one’s they seems such a waste when there are such pretty vibrant colours out there. My superbrights is nice and pink.
I have a couple of skeins of nice Merino wool that is supposed to become shorties, but I kept chickening out of knitting it up cause I am not a great knitter yet and haven’t figured out knitting in the round..now it’s to late, I have carpal tunnel. Damn. Dave’s mom can’t knit anymore because of her arthritis, and sadly all the covers she knit for Evan were made of cotton, cause she insisted babies shouldn’t have wool against their new skin…she didn’t understand the water resisting factor.
I have a bunch of gift cards received for Xmas, but none of those stores carry decent prefolds or anything like that, all the Gerber crap, ya know.
I did pick up a 50 pack of sposies swadlers with the umbilical dip for the first week of babies life, mostly I was thinking of the 2-3 days I will be in hospital, once I am home then cloth is plan.
