Cool 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.

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.)

Genius! I'm glad you said that.

Does sunning get meconium poop stains out of PFs?

Meconium does stain but it comes out easily if you dry them in the sun! I cloth diapered my second girl from birth and loved it. I used fitteds so I don't know about prefolds but I can't imagine why not.

Re: What do you wish you knew then? CDing a newborn

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.

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.

I am definitely subbing to this thread... this is all the stuff I'm trying to find out, but learning about CDing is like drinking from a firehose.

I wish I would not buy cute newborn items simply for cuteness because they sit in a drawer.

I love orange edge GMD prefolds with a newborn and have to remind myself this over and over again. So I don't buy a billion fitteds that I won't really use.

Wool........lots of wool can't go wrong with a lot of wool.

Spend NOT so much on newborn size because you blink and it's over.
