My first was huge too, he had outgrown his infant car seat by four months, he was just over twenty pounds! He's now a42 pound four year old, he hasn't gained any weight for over two years.



My seventeen month old is 25 pounds, and my one month old if probably something like 11.

Just remember that the charts they are comparing her to are based on babies who are technically a month older than her because she was premature. She's being compared to average 2 week old babies, who on average are full or post term.



Beckham is one month and I just bumped him up to one rise snap instead of two on his newborn diapers. I put on one of the jct diapers I got him and it was definitely big.

I am not sure that'd be beneficial any. I will say this. If I ever end up in a place without hookups, I am buying a portable washer.

Regular detergent and softener can clog up the machine. Id strip your machine once a month.

Quoting Brink:" <blockquote><b>Quoting FaithLovesPussyCats:</b>" Do you prefer square baby blankets or rectangular ones?"</blockquote> Rectangle. I wouldn't purposefully buy square."


Idk. I have always used rectangle. But, the muslin blankets I just got are square. But, I don't have a baby to test em on so not sure if I still prefer rectangle lol

As long as you can easily slide a finger under the dipe, marks are fine. And first rule, IGNORE WIC. Especially when it comes to baby food and weight of a baby. They like to tell you how underweight or overweight your babies are. It's ridiculous, they expect babies to be perfect creatures that fall into a certain weight range, when that is impossible. Rely on her growth in general.

I am not very familiar with those. Any idea how much they hold or know of any cheap ones?
