Smile New Nanny Needs Diapers!

Hi there!

Just dropping in to say hello and I am excited to be here.

Getting back in to cd since I have begun to nanny my 7 week old great nephew.

We have been caring for him full time, while his momma works, since he was 4 weeks old and we have been using disposables up until this week. Luckily, I found a partial stash of our chinese prefolds which I used with our 12 yo dd years ago. The only cover we have so far is a wool soaker that I wouldn't part with since I paid so much way back when. It is HUGE on him, but works wonders when ya have nothing else!

My favorite covers back in the day were fleece covers by Polar Babies, Bummis whisper wraps and pull ons.

My favorite prefolds were chinese and indian and I like the larger size to keep cost low as he grows. I am looking to stock up on both covers and prefolds as well as buy some all in ones like fuzzibunz and Bumgenius, etc.

My budget is very limited and we are already over $300 in the hole just for getting gear to watch him. We are not being compensated for the sitting and I would love to find some really great deals here.

Thanks! Michelle in Grand Prairie, TX

Re: New Nanny Needs Diapers!

Welcome, mama/nanny!

I'm sure if you keep a watch out you'll be able to find what you are looking for here on DS.

Also, have you checked out the Cotton Babies website? They have good prices on prefolds & covers. I ordred some prefolds from them before my LO arrived, but we decided to go with pocket diapers. Therefore we are using the prefolds as burp cloths. But I really like the quality of the Cotton Babies Chinese Prefolds and Indian Prefolds!

Re: New Nanny Needs Diapers!

Thanks so much!

I bought some indian prefolds and am really loving them. So far, I have fallen in love with the sandy's bamboo fitteds. They did not have these when I was diapering my first! Or if they did, I didn't find them.

I am really enjoying my time on ds. Feel like it is a place where I fit right in. :-)

So far so good. But, I am having trouble with feedback, do not understand why some leave it and others don't. I should not have to beg for fb.
