Quoting zombie.:" So ive been doing prerinse then wash w two rinse cycles then running an additional two rinse cycles. Overkill or no? I use mf, mf/bamboo blend and charcoal."


for inserts I do cold pre wash no soap, Hot wash with soap, cold wash no soap.
for shells I wash on warm with soap, cold wash no soap.
I have a mix of flats, bamboo, and microfiber.

This is my routine for all of mine. Except I just a cold rinse instead of full cold wash after. I use Charlie's so there's hardly any suds at all and this wash works great for us.

We had leak issues from Tide. :( And Purex free and clear, and he was allergic to Ecosprout. But I really love Charlie's.

Oh no! :( I hate hearing about people being itchy - Itchiness is the worst.

Lol. I thought I was going to be lucky since I made it past when I was diagnosed last time (27ish weeks) but it came at 29 instead.

I'm going to try my hand at making some large hybrid fitteds... Not sure how it's going to work out, but I have to do something.



DD is suddenly on the last leg snap for all of the OS pockets we have - which is most of our stash. I'm trying to hold on to hope that she will suddenly take a liking to the potty, but I really doubt it, so we are about to be left with a handful of size large fuzzibunz, BB covers, and flats. I mean, it's totally enough, but I am one of those people who is always paranoid about running out of anything and I'm a little overwhelmed at the thought of washing every single day because I tend to be forgetful. :shock: Do you wash every day? Does it suck?

That stinks. At least you have two less weeks to deal with it this time. :)



I'm scared I'm going to swell this time because last time my feet swelled 3 sizes and I couldn't wear shoes (just flip flops) for about a year afterward. I realized today that at least I've made it 5 weeks longer than I did last time with no swelling. *knock on wood*. Hoping it continues.

Lol! Iknow. But I also had it until 6 months pp... :/ so here's to another 3/4s year of itching. All that matters is that the baby is healthy though so I'm good.



And I hope you don't swell like that!

I had no idea that it stuck around PP. :shock: Can they give you anything for it? That is like my worst fear (perpetual itchies), I'm sorry.
