I have several fluffy mail packages coming soon. My little guy is getting bigger and I sort of went on a bit of spree (for me anyways, since we are on a limited budget) We have 5 great kushies aios larges that we've been using since we got them a couple weeks ago. They work wonderfully and I'm really happy we got them- especially since we needed bigger diapers (i was using dappi fitteds larges that are suppose to be from 24lbs and up but they are too small for ds now and he's 25lbs- but I'll admit he is more round then tall lol), but my favorite system is going to have to stay fitteds and covers, just from preference.
Anyways, I got 1 xl fancy pants fleece soaker used Diaper Swappers FSOT, 1 xl fleece longie by wahm on DS, 2 18-32lbs organic hemp & cotton diaperap fitteds used FSOT on DS, and the teal brown dress set with purse, 2 OS fitteds and 4 inserts. (I'm going to keep the diapers and inserts and give the dress and purse to my sister- who doensn't cd anyways- for my neice, prolly as her 1st bday present) made by wahm gstaley on cafemom.
I spent $38 total plus the $20 earlier this month for the 5 kushies aios. (that is a lot for us to spend, and I feel a little guilty because we would have been fine with just the 5 aios, but I have to remember that in the long run I'm STILL saving money then if we were using disposables)
I also just bought 2 abc wraps(not same colors- lol) and 2 wonderoos all seconds from http://swaddlebees.com/outletstore. they are a fantastic price for new. even after shipping I think it breaks down to $9.69 each for the wonderoos and $6.69 each for the abc wraps. and I dont care that they are seconds.
now i've spent $90 this month on diapers! The most I've spent prior to this month on buying cloth diapers was probably less then $50. But then we were given a lot in smaller sizes when we started cding from a freecycle mom. so I didn't really need to until he got bigger. But this gives me a decent stash for ds, and a few cute paterns to boot ;-) and if these all work well I shouldn't have to buy any more period until we have #2 (if we do have a #2) and if some of them don't work I can always trade or resell and buy something else that way.
I feel a little guilty spending this much- when we could have gotten by with the 5 aios. but I'm also really excited fo all of it to get here, lol!
