did you save anything from the NB stage?

ok i didn't CD evan as a newborn so this is my first experience with tiny little woolies and fitteds and oh my gosh..its all so precious! i know i saved some clothes, hospital bracelets, and a sposie from the NB stage for evan so i will probably save some of this for eli. i really don't think i will be able to let his homecoming set go. and i am sure rick is kicking himself for letting me pick the priciest stuff we own to bring the little man home in...he looked like he was thinking "how about a prefold, a thirsties cover, and a onesie babe?" when i said that i wanted to save the set.

so did you save anything from then CDing wise? and what if you did? and if you didn't save it, did you regret that? i know a friend sold her NB diapers and was searching like mad to get them back. and feel free to show it all off! i love all those special NB things!

i wouldn't let that going home outfit go either, it is tdf and it would be soooo precious if you gave it to your son when he has his first babe to bring he/she home in.

you are NOT helping me get rid of it....i am just going to blame it on you saying that when rick asks why we are keeping it.


i am a sentimental packrat....not the best thing when you are military and need to be able to move all the time.

if you want dibs on the wool gown, its all yours. no one has called dibs on it yet. i am letting everyone i know pick through it now so i won't have to go through the trouble of listing it all.

and of course ooga booga BBH is all yours.

I saved most of the prefolds (use them to stuff pockets now), one fitted, and two pieces of wool. Everything else was sold.

I don't regret it at all. When we get pregnant again I know I'll want to shop. Heck I'm already buying newborn fluff and we're definitely not trying just yet.

Its starting to get too small but no way I'm ever selling it. I have CD's from my last 2 kids too
Oh, I'm never selling her NB Patchwork Pixie either, I LOVE that diaper

Saved all my newborn fitteds, wool, and covers. And my choice outfits. If I never need them again I will gift them to a close friend who maybe thinks they can't afford a whole stash at once. I would definitely have to save a few for posterity, though. I could never get rid of them all!
