I just washed our first batch of cloth diapers: 6 Thirsties Duo Diapers and 1 Duo Wrap (a gift).
We are registered for some bumGenius 4.0’s, but no one seems drawn to poop-related gift-giving. Or first aid/hygiene, for that matter. Who can blame them? There’s so much cute baby STUFF that it’s hard to say, “oh yes, that thermometer/nail clipper/nasal aspirator/rash ointment is the adorable thing I would like to attach my name to.”
They are so cute, though, the dipes. I hope it all works out. If not, luckily one hundred thousand people we know are having babies, so I’m sure we can ditch them. But I hope it works out.
It’s truly remarkable how I can fall down the rabbit hole of CD researching. A told me the other day that we have to “pretend we don’t have all the options” in order to move on. So, these are the two models I chose. I guess we’ll see! We’re not hardcore enough to start them from the get-go. Newborns go through TOO MANY diapers, which = TOO MUCH laundry. So we’re stocked in disposables for newborn size, and then we’ll launch. I’m getting so excited for tiny buns in sweet colors.
Speaking of tiny buns, we have what should be our last u/s today — third tri growth scan. We will guesstimate our fate. I’m still in the camp that he’s not a mutant super-sized baby. But we’ll see. My mother has requested a photo of his face, though I find u/s face shots scary. Plus, the zunzun has not been cooperative in this respect for the last several scans, instead preferring to nuzzle his placenta. I promised granny I’d do what I could.
