Re: What CDing goofs have you made?

I washed a beautiful new brown fitted with some BGOS and turned all the laundry tabs reddish brown. I did the same thing with green dylon dyed pfs.

I went on ebay and bought what I thought were inserts and stuffed my pockets with them. A good week went by, and for the life of me, I couldn't figure out why my dipes were constantly leaking. After a little research, I realized my "inserts" were actually fleece liners
I did this, too. I got the microfleece and microfibre idea mixed up

Re: What CDing goofs have you made?

i put Kissaluvs on my newborn inside out--FOR TWO WEEKS! I *thought* it was a little difficult to snap... I figured out my mistake when I saw pics of other babies on a newborn fluff thread. (It's a good thing I didn't use prefolds right away--that could have been dangerous!)

I said, did you think the Cranky's would work even over the Jazz jersey

He's not allowed to dress anymore
And just to add some more, today I asked Dh to put a bottombumper on ds and I came it to find it on backwards...we left it

Re: What CDing goofs have you made?

I once made a diaper out of windpro fleece....Waterproof fleece does not work the same way as MM microfleece absorbing stay dry layer. I couldn't figure out why he leaked all over the stroller. YIKES

Re: What CDing goofs have you made?

For over a month, I was putting on her Stacinator side snapping wool cover on inside out. I kept trying to make it front-snapping or something, so there was some extra flap in the front, rather than it being hidden.

Forgetting that ds was wearing regular pants instead of his woolies and not putting a cover on him.

Re: What CDing goofs have you made?

I accidently died almost all of her diapers pink....

I didn't know that the rit dye (I think that's right) bleeds REALLY BAD!!! and did 2 profolds RED...(they are no longer red by the way) I washed them in HOT a few times she wore them and I threw them in with her diapers....ya...they are now used by my 4 year old for her dolls

I learned the hard way she can undo her diapers...and she needs to either wear snaps or pants to bed/nap or I'll find a nakie baby with wet sheets

I haven't done much though...I'm trying to remember more

but this one gets me...

my daughter was at daycare (2 hours once a week) and they put her aio on inside out ...needless to say she leaked...they have done this a few times
