Quoting Moses.:" We don't have those prints here :( "


My offer stands for any of you mamas, im more then happy to post them to you if they wont ship internationally.



Everyone on auzzie diaper sites 'nappy sites' say they're better then the big brand 'itti bitti'



If i like them im going to place a big order.. if i do that i'll get free shipping & will let you guys know :) that way you'll only have to pay shipping from me to the US - which shouldnt be too bad/expensive.

Oh and nomorerack.com is like zulily I just got a couple cute dresses. If you want a $10 credit let me know and I can email you.
I saw tons of cute jewelry but I saw dresses for $10. In fact got one and a $15. Plus your first item ships free. Seems the only thing is later I think you cant combine shipping. Its $2 per item. But seems like a good deal.

I really hate Minky... I don't know why. But gosh is it soft. I just got a minky diaper from Alva baby from ebay and my word. Even Maddy says how soft it is (we put diapers on her at night 'cause pull ups give her a rash).

<blockquote><b>Quoting zombie.:</b>" Whats wicking? Is it a good/bad thing?"</blockquote>




Good and bad. But usually when we talk about it it's bad like "they're wicking around the legs". But wicking can also be like suedecloth or microfleece in a pocket how it pulls the moisture away from the bottom. Basically the best way to describe it is when you spills tiny drop of something on your shirt and you try to wipe the tiny spot with a damp cloth then all of a sudden you have a huge ass wet spot. That's wicking. Haha

You go girl! :)



I bought some wool and some fleece (covers lol) and some mama cloth to try the other day. Trying to figure out what kind of fitteds I'm going to watch for to try under the wool. :)

My plan is to make all that stuff haha. I did a couple cuts and made a pattern so if it works I'm gonna cut up some wool. But I didn't wanna cut it and have a bad fit. So in doing some with cheaper fleece first. And I wanna try some mama cloth but I never bought any so idk exactly how big or what to use in them. I have the outside fabric already but idk what to put in it (someone said a few pages back but now I forgot already haha I think it was bamboo). I haven't had a pp period so I can't just try stuff haha

It's good and bad haha. All I can think about is not knowing if I'm preg. I'm on antidepressants so I would need to stop those if I got preg until I was 4 mos and then I'd be afraid my milk would change and not be able to bf scar anymore :( idk what I'd do if I got preg. :(

Twas me! I said I use bamboo terry but you could use hemp too. Cotton isn't as absorbent and takes more layers... which is uncomfortable and harder on the machine.

Bear monkey bottoms. Hyenacart.com/bearmonkeybottoms I have the zebra minky. Idk if all her minky is that soft or if its just that specific print. I have a minky cheeta, minky pink and an orange flower print rebranded alvas. They're soft but the zebra is softer. I know it's hard to imagine :) and yes like a chinchilla. It's always been my dream to own one :( I held one when I was young and fell in love.
