Dare I say it... Anyone else?

Hello, my name is Emily. And I have a cloth diaper addiction.

I've hit stash nirvana! I just got an order from LL of flats, some fitteds, a FB, some new covers and a ton of wipes.

And I have a few things on their way that I've ordered... but now I feel like I've gone overboard.

Hopefully the husband doesn't freak when he sees the fluff mail coming and coming.

Has anyone else felt guilt after orders? I get suckered into everyone's posts about their favorites and just had to try it. I have a PB&E coming, a GM, another free BG, a flip...

Re: Dare I say it... Anyone else?

I am so with you!!! My husband checks the mail when he comes home everyday, and he's always finding some kind of fluff I've ordered.

He's been ok about it..... but I feel somewhat guilty. I come on DS and find these great diapers that I have to try out... then make the phone call to DH and let him know that I gave in and ordered something else. I feel like an addict that falls off the wagon every time I come on this site.

Re: Dare I say it... Anyone else?

Hi Emily...My name is Missy, and I have a cloth diaper addiction . LOL! Yes, I understand how you feel. I am actually new to CD, so I am trying to get to the point where I KNOW what works for us, but in the beginning, I went waaaaaay overboard! I have been CDing for about 7 weeks now, and when I first started, I bought a bunch of Thirsties Fab Fitteds, some BG AIOs, some Drybees AIOs, and a ZILLION covers. The BGs didnt fit DSs chunky thighs, and now that the weather is getting warmer, the PUL covers and AIOs are giving him heat rash! I have found that the natural fiber fitteds with wool or fleece covers work for him...but I have so much otherstuff I need to sell, b/c I got SO MUCH of it...I went crazy, so now I feel guilty I have to but more stuff. I love getting the fluffy mail, but the looks DH give me.....

Re: Dare I say it... Anyone else?

I too have a addiction. And maybe an addiction to DS as well...

DH just shakes his head at me now when I tell him about this new diaper or product that I just "have" to try. He's been pretty good about it overall although he got kind of fed up when when i bought a bunch of different fitteds to try out and every diaper change he was figuring out a new diaper.

our diaper stash is complete now in the sense that we have enough diapers and covers in the right sizes to get ds through to pl (mainly pfs and fitteds) BUT i too have found the wool love which could be dangerous. i picked up some thrift store sweaters this week to try making recycled woolies so hopefully that will keep costs down.

and even though we don't need any more dipes, i still want to try flats, flips and bg organics trying to resist...

Oh, I'm totally addicted. I'd spent over my limit by the time ds was 1 (I sold some things so I'm not too far off at 17m). I'm good now until ds outgrows his med covers...
