I've got 29 indian prefolds, a bunch of snappis & 13 covers in med/large for Pierce on their way.



(got them all dirt cheap & brand new in packaging apart from the 2 covers which were used)



I love it how people destash cheaply because they want it gone, not because they want their money back 8)



Im officially BROKE now .. i spent whatever little i could scrape together to get DS out of cloth :oops:.. going to have to hardcore budget on food next week lol!



Worth it if his rash clears!



I got 10 BumGenius 3.0 (new condition) yesterday, but they arent even lasting DS a day :(

I would change the hot washes after the one with soap to warm then cold for the last, personally.

My kid never did. You can go to the fabric store and just cut your own from a fourth of a yard of fleece. Much cheaper. I paid like $2 for 40 fleece liners doing it that way

Oh yikes. Yeah it's like half that here. All you need is a fourth of that though. IDK how you guys buy fabric though, here we can buy just a fourth of a yard.

I got 40-50 out of a fourth of a yard. I think you'd be good with a half a meter :)

I've been using soap nuts for a month, little longer maybe, and really really lile them.
Initially I used Econuts (because I got a sample) so I bought some from amazon. Don't remember the brand but they're the top selling soap nuts on amazon, lol. It also came with a liquid concentrate that you can use as a detergent, but I dilute with water and it's a kick ass glass cleaner.

Well, at least you can probably sell the bumgenius for some of your money back.
