Re: A few of your favorite things...

  • ..rain drops on roses and whiskers on kittens....

    Sorry.  I've been locked in the house with my NB for way too long.

    What is your favorite...

    1. Brand of CD-safe diaper rash cream:  CJ- BUTTer stick.  I have tried CA baby and the Magic stick.  Both smelled like medicine and didn't do much good.  CJ's monkey farts smells so good too!

     2. Pockets: I am diapering my NB yet so the only pockets that I have tried are the thirsties duo sz. 1.  The nice part about this is that the inserts come out by themselves in the wash.  The negative is that I don't think they'd work when she was under 7# and don't allow for the stump cord.

    3. Prefolds:  GMD, but only because I have not tried any others.  The newborn (orange edge size) is nice that you don't have to fold it down after the cord stump falls off.

    4. Diaper pail/bag (wet or dry):  I have used Planet Wise large wet bags and now just moved to their pail liners.  The large wet bag barely held 1 days worth of diapers for me (prefolds, KL's, some AIO and cloth wipes).  My LO probably goes through 15+ diapers though.

    5. CD for daycare:  I don't know yet. I'm planning on BG's OS. (fingers crossed that they will fit her by then).

    6. Disposable liners:

    7. Washable liners: I made my own by cutting fleece from a remnant from Joann's

    8. Newborn CD:   BG xs.  They fit so nicely and are my night time go to.  I know lots of people love Kissaluvs, but I could take them or leave them.  My DH hates the snaps.  I don't find them any better than my prefolds.  I hate my fab fitteds xs.  They have poor absorbency and elastic (mine were new).  Poo always escapes through the legs even though the tabs are crossed onto each other.

     9:  Cloth wipes:  I'm adding this:)  I just bought some SMJAE velour/flannel wipes and am in love.  They're so soft!  I just have to see how they hold up.  Otherwise I reach for my Thirsties fab wipes before my flannel/terry home made ones.

  • 1. Brand of CD-safe diaper rash cream:  Haven't found one yet.  We've only tried CA Baby, and it's been ok

     2. Pockets:  I don't really have the pocket love, but I haven't had any issues with the BGs

    3. Prefolds:  Babykicks hemp

    4. Diaper pail/bag (wet or dry):  Planetwise

    5. CD for daycare:  BGs

    6. Disposable liners: don't use these yet

    7. Washable liners:  fleece I cut up and some silk liners I got for free

    8. Newborn CD: Kissaluv contours with thirsties duo sz 1 cover.


  • 1.) Don't have one. We have never needed it.

    2.) Bum Genius 3.0s (I haven't tried the 4.0s) or Rumparooz

    3.) I use Imagine prefolds, but I have heard good things about GMDs too.

    4.) I have a whammies (sp?) pail liner, a Planetwise wet bag for my diaper bag, and 2 Paddle & Quack large wetbags on the way. I plan on phasing out my pail liner/trash can for hanging wet bags.

    5.) N/A

    6.) Don't use them

    7.) I have regular fleece liners.

    8.) We just used prefolds and Thirsties Duo covers.

    What is your favorite...

    1. Brand of CD-safe diaper rash cream:

    We haven't had any rashes yet (knock on wood) so I can't really say.  I did use some Angel Baby Bottom Balm when he was first born on a little irritated area and it worked great.  I just ordered a CJ's BUTTer stick to see what the fuss is all about...and to use on his chapped cheeks. (face cheeks...not butt cheeks, haha)

     2. Pockets:

    BumGenius

    3. Prefolds:

    Never used

    4. Diaper pail/bag (wet or dry):

    Planet Wise.  I use the pail liner in our can at home and send the large zippered bags to daycare.

    5. CD for daycare:

    BG Pockets

    6. Disposable liners:

    I have some Bummis ones but never used them

    7. Washable liners:

    Never used any

    8. Newborn CD:

    BG XS AIO

     

    Thanks again :-)

    haha I looove those wipes. I only have a few and they are the 1st I reach for always and hold up great. I went online yesterday to buy some more at Sweetbottoms and they were sold out :(

  • 1. Diaper rash cream: I mostly use California Baby, because I can't deal with anything I can't easily find locally Smile But I don't use it all that much. And it has been staining my diapers as of late if I use it without a fleece liner, so I'm kinda thinking that the next time I need a tube, I might just get Desitin or something, since it's SO much cheaper and I'm using a fleece liner anyway...

    2. Pockets: I've tried just about everything out there, and have now simplified my stash to almost entirely BumGenius one-size pockets. They rock!

    3. Prefolds: I'm using standard infant prefolds that I got for cheap off craigslist. I have some GMDs for when DS outgrows the infant prefolds, and they seem nice, too.

    4. Diaper pail/bag: At home, I use a standard trash can with a pillowcase liner as a pail in DS's room. I also have two PlanetWise hanging wetbags in the bathroom that I use for the stinkiest diapers (DD's overnight diapers and DS's poopy diapers) to keep the smell in. For the diaper bag, I made a couple of wetbags and they work great.

    5. CD for daycare: BumGenius aplix pockets. BG Elementals (organic AIOs) are great, too, especially if you can find the old aplix version.

    6. Disposable liners: GroVia.

    7. Washable liners: I made my own by cutting up some cheap fleece from Joann's.

    8. Newborn CD: Prefolds! I like Proraps covers until the cord falls off, and then Thirsties covers. Once they're big enough for one size covers, then Flip covers are awesome.

    I only got 3 from sweetbottoms.  I had more in my cart, but it was emptied for some reason and there were barely any left.  Their prices rocked!

  • 1. Brand of CD-safe diaper rash cream: CJs BUTTer. Love it. I tried CA Baby, but it made DD worse.

    4. Diaper pail/bag (wet or dry):  I have 2 Planetwise pail liners that I like. My favorite wetbag is my Snuggie Baby.

  • 1. Brand of CD-safe diaper rash cream: Magic stick for preventative/moisture barrier.  CA baby for redness/rash.

     2. Pockets:  Not a big fan of pockets.

    3. Prefolds:  GMD.

    4. Diaper pail/bag (wet or dry):  I have a white kitchen size trashcan from Ace Hardware for $13.  Works awesome.  Lid snaps down.

    5. CD for daycare:  We have care in the home, but caretaker uses Thirsties Fab Fitteds w/ Thirsties covers. Aplix is easy.

  • Thank you all so much! This is fantastic! I compiled all your responses and surprisingly, I have heard of most of these so I can start making a "stash" list and tweak it over the next few months. :-)
