I got that a lot when I first started. "You have no idea how hard it is, you won't last." From people who had never done it :roll: Five months in and I'm still at it.

Yupp. And she might be 'smart', but this will show her that you know more than she does about some things!

i just bought 2 large Thirsties diaper covers and 36 large Birdseye cotton flats. I'm hoping that and my 3 wool covers will be enough to get me thru 3 weeks. is there any thing else you ladys think i'll need?

I had family members actually taking bets on how long I'd last. Just over two years is how long I lasted. Would've been longer if my jerkface kid didn't potty train on me :x

Has anyone used BumGenius?



A mum has offered to sell me 10-12 for $50 with day & night inserts..



I might try them instead of prefolds/covers until our CD's arrive from the US.



Im not sure which version, but if anyone has used them and can let me know what they're like i'd be really grateful.

I have a bunch of them. I like them. They aren't my favorite but I use them often for around the house. Although lately they smell when she uses them :( But only this brand. I gotta figure that out. They are a tad bulky but really I don't mind them a bit.

Line dry :) Lay flat. Don't have to have a dryer. Is your stuff new? If it needs a heat seal it could leak a bit until you throw in the dryer. But it might not.
