My order from Zulilly came through…5 pocket diapers from Just Simply Baby. My initial thoughts are that they’re not as soft and absorbent looking as my Blueberry pocket, but that shouldn’t surprise me. The Blueberry pockets run for around 20 bucks, and these costs me under 10 each. My boy isn’t a heavy wetter, so I think they’ll do just fine for daytime diapering. I am planning on initially washing all of these but the green bubble print together, and away from my other new CDs…just in case they bleed.

I got fluff mail tonight! Granted, it was only one diaper 🙁 But I’m still excited! I’m hoping to have enough diapers to start full-time cloth diapering Baby J by the end of next month. I’m waiting on a few more diapers that should be here in the next 2 weeks. I didn’t want to go all out until I’ve tried a few brands first. So tonight’s CD was a Thirstie’s Duo Fab Fitted diaper. I already have a Thirstie’s Duo Wrap cover that I’ve used prefolds with. I didn’t realize the fitted diaper came with a pocket to add an insert, and I’m very excited about that. My LO isn’t a heavy wetter, but a little more protection is always good. I have a newborn size insert that came with my Blueberry’s pocket diaper, and I think that’ll fit nicely into the fitted. The only thing I’m not excited about regarding the fitted diaper is that it’s plain old white. I think one of the fun parts of cloth diapering is the awesome colors and prints! But the white fitted was on sale on Amazon, so yeah…
I also got my bottle of BacOut, which I’ve heard great things about, and a pack of 100 liners from Bumkins. I plan to use the liners in case he has a rash, so I can use some of the diaper cream we already have. Down the road, I may buy diaper rash cream appropriate for CDs, but I was taken aback by the price. They’re kind of expensive for a small tube or jar, I thought!
Anyway, baby’s dozing in the swing. Hubby’s picking up some goodies for a deployment care package to a friend. I’m going to see if I can knock out a few more paragraphs on this article I’m working on.
