Cloth Diapers One Size Diapers

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!
