>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!
