We made it through the night!!

OK so don't spank me but I have been using sposies at night. 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!! 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?

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:

Re: We made it through the night!!

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 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?
