We made it through the night!!
 
OK so don't spank me but I have been using sposies at night. :yuck: I really hate sposies, they just literally stink to me. I don't know why I don't CD at night - I guess I have been afraid?

So last night I bucked up and put my daughter in her Softbums Omni retro cars diapers with a MF insert & doubler and lo and behold the crib and her sleeper was dry this am AND she slept in! She was 12 hrs in the same dipe!! :thumbsup: I used some gold bond baby powder and so far no redness, I love this stuff. If I could just find a good detergent/wash routine I swear I'd be in CD Nirvana now. I am off to try original tide next, although DH is gonna kill me if he sees another detergent in our house.

Now what on earth was I so afraid of? :headscratch:

I am really happy I chose softbums BTW, DD is now just about 6 months and over 19lbs and has the chunkiest thighs...I see this dipe fitting her for a long time though!

Oh and...
Last night we started solids too. LO was offered avocado (it wasn't a very tasty one though), broccoli, carrot and apple (also steamed). She loved it all, but the avocado. We just had our first BLS BM too - I am amazed at how much she actually did eat.

Here's a photo of my LO tuckin' into a carrot:

That is awesome! Cute pic, it is so much fun when they start eating and finding out what foods they love :)

just washing my dipes this am and I think I cracked my laundry woes. I uses Tide F&C up to the 1 line, 1/2 scoop of oxyclean and increased the water in my load. The dipes smell really clean...they are just sunning right now so lets hope that is our wash routine solved. I did just one extra rinse, I sure hope that is enough as water is so expensive here. Hopefully I won't see any repelling or stinkies.

I spotted some original tide the other day so I may just go and get it to have on standby - I can always use it on the hubby's work clothes I figure.

We haven't actually tried yet :blush: DD is still sleeping with me so I'm too chicken to try because I'm afraid she'll wet the bed. My bed doesnt have the fancy waterproof pad like hers! Lol, Silly, huh?
