Re: What do you wish you knew then? CDing a newborn
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.
Nature does nothing uselessly.
