One month!

Can't believe that Emma is already a month old!

She is doing great and the transition from 3 to 4 kiddos has been much smoother than I anticipated! I think it has a lot to do with the fact that she is such a great baby. I can count on getting at least 5-6 hours at night and sometimes more...and she is just generally a happy baby. We LOVE her!!!

One of the first pictures I've taken of her in her diapers Maybe it is because my newborn dipes aren't super cute! I used sposies for about the first week just to make life easier for me. Since them we've been using KL0s and a few thirsties XS AIOs. In the last week and a half I've been able to use small BG bamboo fitted dipes mostly with Flip and Econobum covers (pictued above) I LOVE the BG bamboos and the flip and econobum covers are fitting her really well, too. The thing I don't love about the BGs...the laundry tabs that are about worthless I need to size down a few of my one-size pockets to try on her... I'm thinking they should be close to fitting well enough to use. What diapers are you guys loving these days?

Re: One month!

Oh, Sarah! She is sooo beautiful! Does she look anything like your other girls did?

I really need to take more pics of Grant in his diapers. He is growing out of everything. That econobum cover looks really nice. I've not used one of those. We really like prefolds and flats. I've been buying new covers recently, since Grant is almost too big for his x-small thirsties and Duos. This kid has the longest rise. I also like Softbums, but he can pee through the regular sized bamboo insert fast. It's not even as absorbant as an orange edges GMD. Weird, huh? I like Flip covers and Thirsties. I have some Fluffy's covers coming from FSOT that I'm really excited about.

I'm loving my best bottoms on Norah. They fit perfectly at 2 weeks. The thirsties duo and bummis super lite covers fit well over gmd orange edged prefolds as well.

Re: One month!

Emma is beautiful

We are in small gmd flats, none of our newborn stuff fit this little girl cause she was 8lb 10oz at birth loving the flats and I don't know why I ever bother with anything else, flats are always our favorites. No red marks from elastics, no buildup or anything, super easy to wash and dry. I'm done with anything else
One of these days I will get my act together and put all my other stuff on FSOT.

Re: One month!

This is a month old for us! This was actually 8 days ago I saw an 11 day old at the chiropractor today and was blown away by how much bigger my baby was. And that little guy was almost a lb heavier at birth!

Here's some fluffly love from a couple of weeks ago
