I'm ready for Audrey to get out of our bed too - have to get DD1 out of the crib first.

DD1 contracted adenovirus this week and now has an ear infection! Will the germs ever leave us alone?

Wow! That looks so pretty! Are those all in ones? I was going to cd. Now I've moved to a place where there is no washer or dryer and the laundrymat is like 10 miles away. I really wanted to do it.

yes they are all in ones...I have bum genius 3.0 and organic bamboo aio too! and cloth wipes!

This is my first time doing cloth diapering FULL time. Fortunately these are one size too, so they are supposed to fit her from 8 pounds to 40 or something like that.
On my last baby I cloth diapered for a few months and then didnt have enough money to buy the next size.

So far I really like it, I have to wash them every3rd to 4th day and I dont have blow outs and she does not get rashy in them(so far)

That's so cool! I am really sad I couldn't do it. I never did but it has so many good things. I just can't with no washer or dryer. As a consolation though, we are in a much better place thqan we were even though we have to go to the lauindrymat. I'm really glad u are enjoying it. U are a crunchy mama! I'm crunchy minus one! Lol. Got a lot of unpacking and situating done today. I'm tired. I will probably go do laundry tomorrow.

Sorry michele I forgot to respond to u. Sorry dd is sick. It seems the only way to keep them healthy is keep them home. People just don't give a damn about spreading their nasty germs. There should be punishment for it.

Wow, you moved again!
going to the laundromat is fun...although it maybe a bit harder with the baby.
How many bedrooms do you have? Is it in the same town?

I love cloth diapering...I am sorry you didnt get a chance to do it.
I did alot today too and am sooooo sore.

I was working in the garden too and my legs hurt, but the baby loved it, I put her in her pack and strapped her on and started weeding and it was sunny, so beautiful!
I bought her a pair of sunglasses today, she looks so frickin cute in them, I will have to get a pic of her in them!!!!!!!

Hey everybody - I'm so glad I found you all here. Looking forward to posting/ reading the thread.

I wanted to cloth diaper too, but we recycle our graywater as part of a horticulture project, so I can't. Bummer. I really wanted to do it.

HI ladies!
I keep forgetting to check here for posting. I actually havent had alot of free time with this little girl being so fussy day and night. 8O :?

rule- glad it all worked out with the crib sleeping.

vari8ty-
your cloth diapers are so neat looking all in a row on the line! I guess im a major fail at this point with cloth diapering and bf'ing. the only thing we do is Co sleep. :wink: I do feel bad none of what i had planned even worked out, but i always keep my options open even before labor begins cause i know what i have planned doesnt always work for the best. which in this case it hasnt. :(

shelle- sorry your dd is sick. :cry: that stinks.. we were all sick here to excpet Olivia. Thank goodness she didnt catch it.. i just got rid of the darn cough ive had for 3.5 weeks! UGH.. that was a nightmare.

Hi Layla!! :D

Ugh. I am so not happy right now. I moved across the street 2 wEeks ago. We are around a lot more people now. I noticed lily was coughing and then dismissed it becaiuse no fever or congestion or anything like that. Well I just woke up with a cough and it's a the nasty kind that's stuck in your throat. I do not want her tpo have this and I feel so bad. Even if u ask peopple to wash their hands, there is always someone who passed by and touched her hand. What the hell is wrong with peeople? I am so upset right now. She ios too young for something like this. It feels like a bronchitis thing. Please pray she doesn't get it. I know u understand ashellbelle. I'm about to become the not so nice me.

Oh - I hope she's ok. My dd and ds were sick when I brought the baby home and it was really scary. I understand.

I'm sorry Layla - I saw on FB that you took her to the dr. I hope the cold is mild and she kicks it soon. People are stupid - they never realize how much harm a simple touch does.

WOOHOO!!!! Zane slept from 9pm til 3:38!! I think I woke him up at that time. I woke up and my boobs were killing me! :bbs: He's usually nursed twice by that time! I see an end in sight. I see STTN *will* eventually happen. I also know I will have to "pay" for last night by being up alot tonight. Something like that would never happen two nights in a row. :roll:

I know. Olivia slept 1 night for 5.5 hours and i woke up thinking OMG is she alive??? I freaked out when i looked at the clock and i think i woke her up cause i was checking her for breathing and whatnot. she was okay and then woke up starving. she hasnt done that since. of course.

:roll: At least I expected it. We were up last night from 1230 to 215. And then up for good pretty much at 4:38am. I knew that would happen. Brat. :lol:
