So against all reason and N’s recommendations to go slow, I went out and ordered a bunch of fluff. In my defense, it was all on sale, overstock, half price, or much-needed and it was essentials. Our little monkey has an unfortunate case of the plumber’s butt in his FB Small pocket diapers, and I am sorry to say that the one-size FB just doesn’t cut it. Doesn’t fit as well, as snug, and even though it is highly adjustable it just isn’t as easy to put on. Hence me trudging over to GogoNatural to take advantage of their $12.95 overstock sale on FB perfect sized diapers. Medium Mac ‘n’ Cheese, here we come!
And on N’s recommendation I grabbed a Bummis Super Brite cover which will hopefully hold baby L’s poop in with its gussets. You see, his thirsties covers have also “had it” size-wise. The ones I have left are in pretty good condition, I may be able to sell them online since I doubt that the elastic and such would hold up for too much longer. But we shall see, it may be worth keeping for baby number two, whenever he or she decides to make his/her slow journey here.
And then I found a few interesting websites with some great deals. I heard some good things about Piddle Poddles and she had a deal on a half-price AIO one-sized diaper with a random design (unfortunately I can’t choose the print) but I figured that if the price was right for a new diaper, I shouldn’t argue about the print.
And lastly I decided to try some really nice low-priced AIO OS dipes – GoGreen Diapers, which are very competitively priced at $10-$15/diaper.
And lastly I got a SB-ish multi snapless fitted and a Gen-Y cover – perhaps I should have mentioned these first. Now I’m not allowed to buy diapers for awhile because this completely rounds out our stash to replace what has been outgrown.
So while I didn’t go for my beloved Rumparooz or a few Sustainable Babyish fitteds, I may do these next depending on what our needs are. I hope that these fit in with what we should be getting. I couldn’t help but be attracted by the low price points at each of the diaper types that I chose, and going with the FBs is – I am positive – a good choice, since they worked so well for us at first. I may do a brief review of the diapers we have to date in case they help my friends who are just getting into cloth. It’s worked for us so far!
