  • Here's another random. I was looking for an estimated diaper count (so I could finish my stockpile), and ran across this website. Anybody have any input, debate, ideas, etc in regards to this.

  • oh, and another random. So, it looks like DD1 and the new baby will be sharing a room. How do I do that? I am honestly fine with it. I know my sister and I shared a room until I was in middle school and we loved it. I just need advice from other moms who have already done it. Also, as far as decorating and making it cute... how do I do that? Any tips?

  • I agree with @SnarkasaurusRex. We do both the Amazon subscription (which occasionally allows you to clip coupons), or the Target cartwheel+coupon+extra deals. I save all my target gift cards for Christmas every year. We will have 2 in diapers at once, and unfortunately, Pampers are the only brand that don't either break out DS, or have issues with massive leaks. 

    In my experience, 10 diapers a day is correct for a newborn. @MrsStuessy we only changed DS when he was 'dirty', but he was dirty A LOT! His pedi says he has very healthy bowls, lol. Even at 18 months, we still have 3-5 dirty diapers a day.

  • I think, looking back, that it was probably because we very rarely had to change diapers at night. She mostly stopped going during the night or if she did go she slept through it so we didn't change her. She was a pretty great night sleeper (never slept more than 10 minutes a time during the day). So, there was only like 1 diaper between the hours of 9pm-6am. I bet that was the reason we had less.

  • @HappyAnjel WOW! 6 boxes of NB size!!  :# Yikes. I think I have just enough NB to get us through (or close to through) before moving on to size 1. I'm mostly worried about size 2 and 3 as well. Guessing on sizes is hard, which is why I was looking for an estimate, but I guess there really is no way to know how fast/big your baby will grow.

    @mrsstuessy I do not envy the apartment hunting. Trying to find a place is the worst and I can't imagine doing so now! But I hope you can find something quickly that's as close to a perfect fit as you have time for! 


    I think things are going at a nice pace for me, but I think I'm in no hurry because I don't want to leave my job in the first place, (29 working days left!!) and we still aren't ready for her in several tangible ways. 

    On the other hand, I've been pregnant for literally 11 months now, with a "break" for seven weeks in the middle that was definitely not a break, and I'm tired of being pregnant in that sense. It's just been a long road and I just want to have her safe in my arms and meet her at last. 
    i had to go count the calendar after I read this! :D  27 for me!!!

  • @KirstinH88 FWIW, I used that same article when pregnant with DD to stock up and between what we bought ahead of time and shower gifts, we didn't need to buy diapers again until she was almost five months old. We never bought any newborn though. Those came from the hospital and a diaper cake we received. DD also never made it to the weight max for each size. We found we needed to switch her when she was about two pounds away. We are using the guidelines from the article to stockpile for this one also!

  • @mrsstuessy that's incredible! Yes the hour drive sounds a little not fun, but I'm sure your doctors will work with you to be careful to have no babies in the car! Everything about that place sounds awesome for you all and I'm so excited for you. Praying for you for sure physically and mentally as you get ready to move so late in pregnancy!

  • @mrsstuessy Yay!! Sounds like it'll be a great place for your family of four :) and while the drive to the hospital is long, I'm sure you can work out a plan to make sure you come to the hospital in time!

  • @mrsstuessy How amazing! Life is looking up for you!! DH got on full time at his job (assuming he took the offer) and you found a place to live! So happy for you guys. What an exciting time! The hour drive to the hospital is going to suck, but hopefully after having one, you will be more aware of your body and can head to the hospital a little early..

  • Another random, what are y'all going to do about swimsuits post partum? It'll be pool time in Texas, and while the maternity swim suits won't probably work, there is no way I'm getting in a 2 piece while getting back to pre-pregnancy state.

  • @visualcircus good question! I was wondering that too. I'm not sure my current suits will fit and especially not my boobs!

  • @visualcircus you might find a cute one piece, they seem to be a lot trendier now. Or maybe a two piece with high waisted bottoms...just a few ideas.

    if you plan on nursing I would wait to get anythinG until your milk comes in. I needed a new suit when bfing DS because the top of my old one didn't fit.

  • I'll most likely just go in with shorts and a tshirt. Maybe NEXT summer I will feel more confident in my body to do a one piece or tankini. But a bikini will most likely never happen for me again. I'm way too self conscious for that.
