Re: Due in December???

I am due dec. 30th and I am having a homebirth so I don't need to pack a bag!! My birth kit is ready though. Nothing else is. I need to get some baby clothes and stuff. And I want to get some NB sposies until the merconium is gone. I don't want to mess up my pretty cloth!!

This is our first and wanted to know if there is a different way of cleaning the "first" icky diaper of a nb? I got a nb sample sposie and thought of using it because I've heard the first poo is just gross. Is this true

Thanks

Yes its gross and is like tar. Harder than heck to get off. For the first week unitl the merconium is gone I use sposies and put olive oil on her bum so that the merconium slides off when I change her. Cloth after that.

Re: Due in December???

I never had a problem with the meconium.. I just used liners I preferred that over sposies... but I also use cloth mama pads... I just don't like the paper for myself or my babies... but that doesn't mean my way is for everyone

[QUOTE=akrab;2171884]are you due in December? 12/2

If so is your bag packed? - yup.

What is in your bag?
-robe
-pillow
-clothes for baby
-clothes for me
-lotion
-chapstick
-massager for my back
-book
-book for DH
-snacks for DH

As of yesterday, at my last appointment, I am 100% effaced, but not dialated at all . I have been having alot of on again off again cramping and BH contractions, so I am hoping this baby is coming soon. I cant wait to meet my little princess!

Overall I feel pretty good, but the carpal tunnel is getting worse, and I get tired very quick. Cant complain too much though![/

Re: Due in December???

I'm due December 20th.

I started packing a bag a few weeks ago, but never really finished it. I wanted to get online & look up a list of "stuff" to pack. This thread is a good reminder AND it has some good lists. Thanks!
