I’m finally feeling like I have the time and energy to live beyond merely feeding and diaper changing; its a nice feeling.
I’ve not gotten any more diapers made, but with the slew that we have from the hospital, diaper tree and gifts, we are set for another 2 weeks or so. Nonetheless, we have played with our cloth diapers and tried them out. Even with the kissuluves, size 0, it results in the monster bum, though the onsie will still close around it. As for the one size that my friend Liz has made (and I’ve been working on), I can get them small enough, but the little guy is soooooo skinny it takes some doing.
To be a true one-size, I think we’d need to make our velcro tabs two sided so they can overlap and still attach. Otherwise, it seems to work great.
In other diaper news, about a month ago, I purchased the e-book from allaboutclothdiapers.com. I read through part of it, and wondered if I’d paid too much. But today, I went directly to the “washing” section, read and have a plan.Totally worth the money, if only for that section. Sure I could of done the research via google, but with a newborn dominating my time, and recovering from a c-section (which going well, I think), it was worth the price to just open the document and read — no research required.
Of all prep that I did for having a baby, I didn’t acquire much in the way of nursing clothing. So, I’m converting a few tank tops into nursing tops…
I’ve sewn ribbon from the shoulder strap to the underarm, added a button and cut the pieces apart.
Took me 2 hours to write this post, the little guy refuses to let me put him down, is fussy-fussy, and we have a guest over. Of course, we have a guest, and baby Samuel gets cranky. Ah, breaks my heart trying to figure out how to comfort him, tonight seems to be somewhat solved, but we will see. We’d hoped to make it church tomorrow, but we will see how tonight goes. Luckily, the past few nights have been good — solid 3 hours at a time. Can’t ask more than that from the little man.
