Red face Things you did not think you would like..but

Things you did not think you would like ore use much but ended up loving.....

1. cloth diapers
2. ipf's

3. I once bought a sugar peas AI2. A fleece cover with a snap in fitted. I used it and it worked just fine, but I did not love it. So I traded it to someone here. It did not work for them and it came back to me. I think I might have tried to sell it again or put it aside to sell later. Well....one day it made its way out of the back of the stash and I love it. I even bought more snap ins for it. It is the best fleece cover I own. I use it with my ipfs too.

Anyway, I used to be a pocket snob and was just amazed at my diapering evolution.

Any of you have a story....

Me too!

Things I never thought I'd like:

1. Cloth diapers - if anyone had told me a year ago that I'd be cloth diapering, I would have laughed in their face!

2. PFs - they used to look so complicated and uncute - now I think they're so simple and my dyed ones are adorable!

3. Pins

4. Wool

Re: Things you did not think you would like..but

prefolds trifolded in a cover is my biggest shocker. I hated the thought of even owning prefolds. Now its all I will own soon.

Something Im surprised that I didn't like is fitteds. I really really dislike them. The bulk is simply to much.

Re: Things you did not think you would like..but

1. cloth diapers - I used to think people were crazy to use cloth when sposies were so easy.

2. home made baby food - agian I figured the store bought stuff is so easy why would you make your own. Well I realized how easy it was to make simple stuff so I did, don't get me wrong we still bought baby food but I made lots of things as well.
