Re: Adopt a Newbie!!!! Please repost after #1800 if you still need a BS

Looking for a big sister/sisters!

My name is Alix and I am 24, currently a stay at home-schooling mom of a soon to be 7 year old boy with another due in 8 weeks. I am an off and on student, minimalist, alternative thinker, and lover of all things wild and free. I used to be a traveling kid and I lived off-grid in the middle of nowhere for 5 years and loved it. Built my own little adobe dome home and garden and hitched to and from town monthly or less to stock up on supplies. I am hoping to move back soon after the birth, but nothing's set in stone.

I used CDs with my first but was limited to gerber prefolds and plastic covers so I am still pretty new to everything. I have begun a small stash of os pockets, mostly impulse buys, and and am debating on selling them for a small NB stash and prefolds and flats.

I carried my first in a snugli and am curious about better options. I like the NB wraps and buckle carriers but would like to learn about others.

I am also interested in homeschooling guidance for 7yrs and up, curriculum, routine, ideas, etc.

Let me know if you are available to help with any of the above, thanks!!

Ah just what I needed! *giggle* I've decided to try CD'ing part time (for now) and am totally lost. So far I have 2 Fuzzibunz pocket in medium but they seem way to big in the crotch.
2 BG 3.0 in small (since the fb seemed big) and they seem too snug, ugh! I also got 3 Indian prefolds to try and snappis, but I haven't a clue how to properly fold. I'm also stumped as far as "prepping", extra rinses, stripping, etc. Anyone?? lol

I'm new here this week. Just started using cloth diapers. Definitely could use some help cause I barely know what I'm doing. But I love fluffy butts and my 4 month old daughter is happy my hubby is on board as well!

Not a newbie but I'm willing to help out if anyone needs it!

I have seven children, the last five CD'ed. I've changed CD's every day for the last seven years. Woah, that's kind of intimidating to think about ...

We homeschool, are retired military, conservative Christians, new to a lot of civilian life, but have just stepped into quasi-homesteading on our one-acre lot! As far as diapering goes, we use a little of everything, so just ask!
