What do you wish you knew then? CDing a newborn *update post #269*
 
Curious as to what the answers are here.

With DS's arrival only 7 weeks away, I am curious as to what you know now that you wish you knew back when you started.

We didn't CD Maddie until she was a year old, so this is a whole new ballgame for us. :goodvibes:

I would say that I wish I knew to use a diaper liner, even a cheap prefold until the dark meconium poo went away..... (Something you won't mind if it stains.)

Does sunning get meconium poop stains out of PFs? :giggle:

I was in the same situation, didn't start CDing DD until she was around a year old and then DS came along and I was so excited to CD a newborn. If I could go back and do my stash, I would have all fitteds and prefolds. Mutts, SKCs and small KHWs. Plus a lot more wool. I was afraid of EBF blow outs so didn't get much wool, but everything has worked so well that I am really sad now that I didn't. I have a dozen pocket/AIOs that are only used last in rotation because they just aren't as great as my fitteds or pf's even, they are super cute because they seem so tiny though.

I wish I knew about bamboo prefolds. Especifically about tushie ties bamboo is soo soft and yummy. Oh, and I wish that I'd had the forethought to stick a liner in each diaper before the baby came. That way I would've had it right there from the get go for those first few tiredsome days and not worry about the meconium poop.

no.... I never had luck getting the stains out. I used prefolds and cover with my first DS and I found FB's when my second/thrid DS's were born.

The only Meconium poo my LO had wa in the hospital so that wasn't near as bad as I thought it was going to be.

I wish I would have known how easy and great PFs are. I am already planning my next stash when we get another newborn, mostly PFs Angeldary covers and a few pockets, a couple pieces of wool nothing overboard since they are in that size for all of 2-7 weeks.

I didn't have meconium stains, but I do primarily use prefolds, so it wouldn't have mattered much.

There wasn't much I was that surprised about with CDing a newborn. We went through 18 diapers for him on some days. Some days my 21-month old goes through 10 or 12, still.

Everything's bulky on a newborn and they are so squirmy. I don't really like snaps.

I'm surprised that I have a pretty heavy wetter. I thought he wouldn't go much at a time until he was older, but no, it looks like I have another challenging pee'er. :giggle:

That's a good point I have my LO's at home... I guess I didn't think about the first days at the hospital.:goodvibes: It should be gone by the time you come home. :giggle:

I thought meconium doesn't stain. :nervous:
