I'm sure. I used to work in a day care and I didn't even make min. wage... and Hubby's cousin works as a Teacher's aid and she doesn't make much more.



I used to love kids when I was in HS and thought I wanted to open my own in home daycare so I could raise my kids and make money. Then after I had DD I realized I EFFIN HATE OTHER PEOPLES' KIDS! So I guess that's out. lol

Yeah, when Millie was little, like newborn, it was a whole lot easier to get AI2's on her as opposed to fitteds/covers. I never thought to make hybrid fitteds for her newb stage, they would have worked well, I'm sure.

I'm pretty sure I'm going to order something tiny and cute soon but just trying to figure out what of your stuff is best for newborns! :)

I don't like how the ditto daddies pattern is written.

the AI2's were easier to use, but the fitteds/covers worked better than others. I think I'd probably use hybrid fitteds if I was ever having another baby. but I'm not :?

I haven't actually printed it out or looked at it yet so I don't how I feel about it other than it looks cute. I'm probably just going to buy some of the Blueberry Trainers for him. He decided to PT again last night and so far only one accident (poop) when I left for work this afternoon. I may save the Ditto Daddy pattern for "big boy undies" since I think they look adorable.

Hahaha that may be me. I don't want a "real" job... but at the same time I want something just in case. Hubs and I may not be forever be it divorce or death.

Had to go to 8 mile for my prefolds. lol.




But anyway, what do you guys do when you get used stuff? Is the RLR stuff really worth it? What kinds of detergents do you like best?



I'm going to a cd store this weekend and they have Rockin' Green and Allen's and they have RLR for $2... So I just thought I'd ask.

Have any of you used a washcloth as a newborn diaper? I saw a picture a few days ago of a newborn in a "washrag diaper". I tried googling it and looking on youtube and all the results I get are on how to "wash cloth diapers". :?



I'm just wondering if there is a specific size or material that would work best.

What do you do put it on like a prefold? Idk if it'd be thick enough. But I'm sure you could if you were in a crunch.

I think it's very important to be able to sustain your family on your own just in case. You can't predict what will happen in 10+ yrs. it's definitely smart to have a fall back.
