What do I do now?

Good news is that my 22 month old DD has started potty training and insists on wearing undies (trainers) during the day.

I'm thrilled she has taken to using the potty so easily but what do I do with all the fabulous diapers. I have accumulated quite a stash of mostly WAHMs of at least 75 changes, including diapers I rarely use.

Unfortunately I don't know if I'll have another child who can use this stash. Two FETs with no baby and I'm out of frosties.

Also, I have been an addict for 2+ years, stalking Hyenacart, Etsy, Spots Corner, etc for items I could not resist. I may need an intervention.

    I'm not ready to sell them because that would be admitting that I won't be having more children and I just can't go there yet.

  • Could you just destash a few? Or are you wondering how to prep them for storage?

  • I'd probably destash some of it, especially the stuff you never used, but keep my favorites until either I knew for sure that I was definitely done with any attempts for more children or the hopefully happy alternative of another bum arriving to buy more diapers for.

    I've heard that longer term storage it's best to wash the diapers once or twice a year to help keep the materials in good shape and elastic from becoming brittle.

  • I would sell all but your favorites, and then you have a reason to do lots more shopping when/if you have another!

  • I also say keep your favs but seat ash some. You know when you have another baby you're going to want to buy some new cd :)

  • Glad the potty training is going well, but hate having those reminders.  Have you made any decisions on doing another fresh cycle?
