It seems like a lot of people here cloth diaper or are planning to.
I have been going back and forth on what to get for my newborn stash. I want the actual diapers to be organic. I don't want to spend a ton of money as this may be my last child and I know they won't be in the newborn size for long. I was looking at kissaluvs with covers, then just prefolds with covers, but now I have been looking at Green Mountain Diapers Workhorse with something like a Blueberry mini cover. That would be cheaper than the kissaluvs but not as much work as a prefold and from what I have seen a little less bulky and more absorbent. Does anyone have any experience with these? I also thought I would get a few different covers like Thirstys, etc.
Also, I keep remembering the hospital wipes when I had DD. They were sopping wet, soaked in soap like chemicals and smelled really strong. Am I crazy to want to at least bring my own sensitive natural wipes and/or bring cloth wipes? I figure I will use their diapers while I am there but I would rather not use their wipes on the newborn fragile baby butt. LOL.
Wow. That is so weird about the wipes. When we had DD, they had a pack of the Pamper's sensitive skin wipes that stayed in the crib drawer. They used them when she had to be in the nursery and we used them when she was in the room with us (which was always except when they HAD to take her). That is strange that you had strong chemical wipes at your hospital. I am delivering at a different hospital this time since we moved. Maybe I will take my own just in case.
