Re: What do you wish you knew then? CDing a newborn

Cut up tees for liners is a great idea. I would either throw away or use as cleaning rags later.

As for fleece if you use cream then wash the fleece liners separate from dipes. I think washing them with Dawn will strip them.

Re: What do you wish you knew then? CDing a newborn

Wish i would've done fitteds and pf's. I used REALLY crappy aio's that leaked like crazy. Way added stress! I can't believe, looking back, that i didn't give up on cd'ing because of them. lol. Then i discovered wool at 3 mths It was love at first sight. lol. I've been in love ever since

My other "if only I had known..."

- that EBF poop rinses clean in the washer instead of trying to spray it off of our diapers for the first six weeks!
- that I needed more than 2 dozen of the tiny pfs, or that I had known I could fold down the infant-sized ones...I couldn't go more than 36 hours without doing laundry in those first couple of weeks!
- that the sun works miracles in getting stains out -- I went through an embarrassing amount of OxiClean trying to get out those EBF poop stains in the first couple of months of DS's life

Re: What do you wish you knew then? CDing a newborn

Great thread! I can't wait to CD my newborn. We are doing cloth from the start; I will be using GMD orange edge pfs secured with a snappi/pins, pull on wool interlock covers/pants and knit longies. I cut off and surged a bunch of l/s onesies. I also have a bunch of babylegs. I need to look into a sleep sack...

Re: What do you wish you knew then? CDing a newborn

if I had to do it over, I'd get 24 orange edge gmd's, 12 KL0's and a few nanipoo NB's, plus 4-6 interlock soakers. I had way too many fitteds for Ruby and we used the orange-edges the most. and nothing held in the poo like the KL0s! I loooooved those.

They were regular chenille style washcloths that I bought in little bundles at Ross or TJ Maxx. I bought them to use as wipes and I love them for that but I remembered someone on here posting pics of using washcloths as newborn dipes and decided to try it myself. They are perfect for nb size, they are snappiable too. I put another washcloth trifolded inside as a doubler.
