    WOW thats heaps PP!!! YAY! I use my BB covers as well as soakers.



    Speaking of red dye... I have a Shannon soaker (thats what they are called in my house ) and she dyed it red... it runs heaps. I hand wash it and the cream area is now pink but the funny thing is over a mandy mac & the MM gets pink spots when it gets wet, it washes out but its DH's indicator, he just looks for the pink spot.

    WOHB: funny enough... mandy mac and shannon soaker

    PP - you can reassure your DH that I've spent a lot more than that, so he's lucky to not be married to me.. lol
    I wouldn't even want to list my stash, its bad enough to list numbers!!!!!!

    Nelle - Riv is soo cute... Aricyn likes to eat mango.. through the skin... go figure..

    PP - I asked the day care if they would do cloth, and they said yup, but its his last day at this particular one so I didn't bother getting a bucket for them, and its just easier for him to be in sposies. However, he will be starting at his new daycare on monday and I will give them cloth and a bucket so no excuses!!!!!!

    GOT FLUFFY MAIL CONFIRMATION FROM DH!!!!!

    Tis a big order from Nappy Bucket... crikey.. I didn't realise I put in that much of an order... must of been on a roll... LOL

    And another cheap Motherease nappy I scored off ebay.. woohoo!!!!

    OOh thats what I was going to ask - how does everyone name their nappies for day care??? I don't want any one stealing my precious bum g's!!! LOL

    Can you use the labellers?
    I bought one at kmart on sale for $40 and labelled all dd's clothes and lunchbox etc... might need to sew on though.. not sure if it will stick

    FJ - going well. have been playing with how to sew them - ie inside out... rough edge etc - doesnt matter as long as they soak up the wee... (havent had the chance to use yet though). Washed them all 3 times so far (first hot with hot dry prior to sewing like you said) then throw them in the wash when ever i do a wash...

    Gudi - I don't name mine, we're the only cloth bum! But I don't bother with a bucket, just a nappy bag (the baby beehinds bags are great!) that they fill up. I just make sure they flush the poo ... that's something they don't usually do! Otherwise, pop down to officeworks and you can get labels from there, sew 'em on

    I see lots of posts welcoming Gigi back! about to go to the previous thread.

    Got 2 lots of fluffy mail today - the widdlewuns monster roar (I thought I bought a white nappy, its pale green but hey, still looks good) and nappybucket - 2x BP & lots of babylegs. And picked up my babybeehinds order, they only sent 2 hemp, 2 bamboo despite the invoice / order being during their "buy 2 get 1 free" sale. Have called them, waiting for a callback.

    DH is now not even putting the MCN into the bucket - he just takes them off Pip and leaves them on the floor. ARSGHHHH.

    WoHB - flanno flat (daycare), was magicall @ drop-off , will be either magicall or BP when I collect him.

    Kaz - I'm pretty sure that we will be the only cloth users there at day care too... so maybe I won't bother.
    Widdlewuns are soo cute... I'm loving mine, so purdy.. and my DH leaves the MCN's on the bathroom floor, on the bedside table near the changetable.. on the floors.. lol... I do pass them to him and make him put them in the bucket though.. but he knows better than to mess with a pregnant hormonal biatch!!! LOL

    PP - we do have a labeller, but its only for plastic items and stuff.. not clothing

    Wow PP, I'd say you could probably slow down now :P See how you go with those, and as your kids grow, your needs might evolve, who knows, you might do a bit of selling and buying down the track.

    I wonder how many I have...I'll just guesstimate from memory, so I might be over or under a couple. (I've small-ified the font, to try and make it not look like so much. :P)

    Wow Nelle, I'm in awe.

    Phoned baby beehinds, they will post them out tomorrow or friday (I just bought another wetbag from them )

    Hmmmm. Wonder when there will be more BP inserts available?

    now with the hemp, I understand that some bubs can take a little while to get used to them - should I introduce them to Pip slowly then? or ??

    The IB discounts, which site was that off? with the code? is it still available?

    anyhows, good luck tomorrow with the new CC gudi

    That's for TWO kids though...in winter...though I didn't count the flats and prefolds...that takes the list to 132.

    Yeah PP, OSFA nappies are great like that, I've got quite a few. I'm finding even the Tots Bots Cottons size 2 aren't too bulky for Si if they've been tumble dried! I thought they'd be way too bulky, but the drier makes a difference!

    Anyone know how to make velcro stickier? My GK velcro is lacking a bit in the sticky department...

    Oh and Kaz, my dh has been known to put nappies straight on the floor, or ON the nappy bucket instead of in. Lazy! The only time I'll forgive ON the nappy bucket is when it's in the middle of the night, because I know he tries to change the night nappy while staying as asleep as possible - if I want it done properly I could always be the one to do any night changes....naaahhhh.
    Or if the nappy bucket's full, instead of emptying it into the big bucket in the laundry, he puts nappies on top.
    He never used to do that actually, perhaps it's time for a friendly cuppa and reminder that doing that makes my job harder, especially if Riv ever finds the left out nappies! Ewww!

    ETA: Lol PP, for Si I like Bamboozles or Baby BeeHinds, and for Riv, BerryPlush or Itti Bittis...any nappy for Riv really.

    And Kaz, neither or my kids have ever had an issue with hemp. I really like hemp, maybe even more than bamboo in some cases, it hasn't gotten stinky for us either.
