Exclamation Tell me what to buy ~ SPAM an dlinks please!!

The next few weeks I will concentrate on doublers and inserts for Lilly's dipes. I am a cd newbie so I need some help here, please don't abreviate as it confuses me. I will cd from the get go so NB and Smalls. I have a variety of diapes so please tell me what will work with what. I truely am dense here as I have not looked into it much and most of my dipes are used and have no inserts.

Okay I have some XS and Sm FB, a VB pocket, a HH pocket and some FF pockets. I also have a lot of KL 0's, some dri line fitteds and some other fitteds. Not to much on the AIO side.

I obviously have no idea if I have a heavy wetter but we do co sleep and I do not want to wake up wet. My other 2 kids are sleepers so I am assuming this one will be as well. I need some info on things that will work during the day and at night.

Thanks!!

Oooh... since you'll be CDing a NB, definately get a BumGenius One Size pocket dipe (or more LOL)!!! Not only can you dye them yourself w/Kool Aid (my latest addiction) but they really seem to be great for a one size dipe, work awesome overnight and IMO would be a great investment! I surely would have made my stash out of BGs if they'd have existed a year ago!

You can get them at Abby's Lane w/5% discount if you join her yahoo group. Plus free shipping -right now. Soon it'll be only at orders over 25$.
www.abbyslane.com

HTH!

ETA: From my experience w/DS being CD'ed as a NB I can only tell you that they pee a LOT in the beginning. Not necessarily much, but like every hour, so make sure you have enough dipes!!!

Ohh.. how fun to CD a NB!

I make aio's. The soaker is on top so it has quicker drying times than the ones that are hidden. They are on sale right now too.

Re: Tell me what to buy ~ SPAM an dlinks please!!

Do you have any preemie or infant prefolds? My stash is pretty much all fb's now and prefolds are all I use to stuff them. I have tried cottonbabies inserts, which seem to work fine, and joeybunz inserts, which I don't like too well, but I think that the prefolds are the best thing. We can use them with a snappi or tri-folded in a cover (we use wigglewormbottoms--didn't I sell you some of those?--if that was you your going to LOVE them!) so we don't have to waste money on inserts. I started out wraping the pf's in microfiber towels, but that's kind of bulky and it's overkill for my dd who is a medium wetter, so now I'm just stuffing with prefolds (preemie or infant work fine in small fb's) and prefolds w/a microfiber towel for night time or outings. HTH feel free to pm me if you have any questions!
