I bleed for you

>I think I mentioned before that we planned to use hubby’s plasma donation $ to build up a cloth stash.  He was showing me his latest boo-boo from said donation and told our son that he is bleeding for his red little hiney!

I found a site that had great prices and sold most of the brands I was looking for.  Dipes are expensive to begin with, but their cost can easily increase by 50% or more if you have to pay shipping on each item.

I chose 4 brands/styles I wanted to try based on reviews online & from other mamas in the CD groups.  Happy Heiny’s one size pocket diapers with aplix, Blueberry Minky one size diaper, Fuzzibunz one size diaper with hip snap and a clearance diaper, Haute one-size traditional pocket diaper.  Between the blood $ and a check I had from selling Mary Kay, I had about $100 to spend.  There was a $5/$50 coupon as well as free shipping with a $99 purchase.

I threw in some Grandma El’s Diaper Rash Cream (post on diaper rash and CD safe creams to come!) and a planet wise small wet bag.  I had been using gallon size ziplocs for clean/dirties when we went out up to this point. 

A mom in the CD group on cafemom makes cooshie tooshies diapers.  I was able to get a screaming deal on a pocket diaper and an AIO.  They are mediums, whereas all the other diapers I have purchased were one size.  However, the price was great and definitely worth it.

Now the worst part, waiting for the packages to arrive!

That new baby smell

>Fast forward a bit and I’ve effortlessly given birth to my 6 pound baby. 

No, not really.  My son was born at 40 weeks 6 days, after a rash of ridiculous 90 degree days in freaking May, weighing in at 7 lbs 15 oz.  My husband said he should have cut the umbilical cord a little longer to make it an even 8 pounds! 

8 pounds may not seem like a “big baby,” as I’m always hearing the story of the woman who had an unassisted childbirth and had a 25 pound 3 year old in their bathtub (not really but you know).  In any case, he was big for me.  I am 5 feet tall on a tall day, though my license says I am 5’1″ (hey, I am with shoes on darn it!) and was maybe 100 pounds soaking wet pre baby #2.

I figure his weight was solely because of the ginormous case of newborn diapers I’d bought.  My 6 pounder was the result of my having purchased none, and the newborn diapers being out of stock at nearly every store in the county.

So anygiantheadedbaby, had I known I was going to have an 8 pounder, I may not have been quite as eager for the drug free childbirth AND I would have gone ahead and bought those one size diapers!
