This morning, N woke up and his pants were soaked. I thought it was because he's taken to drinking water before bed. I looked and there was ZERO stretch left in the elastic on the one side, my inserts weren't even saturated. When my first three bit the dust, I emailed them once and they were on vacation. I waited and waited...nothing. I emailed again...still nothing. I also had two BGs die recently. The PUL literally disintegrated. They're 16 months old but I emailed BG anyway. It was mostly to share my wash routine and see if they thought I did something to cause it. They responded in MINUTES offering to replace them. I have to say that even though the FB are getting a little small for N and I think they stain easier than other diapers, they are a TOUGH diaper...at least in my experience. I think Phoenixgirl had PUL issues with a few of hers.

Anyone familiar with swaddlebees or blueberries?? We are thinking of getting some of those covers...Also, after combing through this thread, what are the best prefolds to purchase? I know they come in various sizes and absorbancies, but what are really the top of the line and why? Oh there is just so much to know and learn about cloth diapes!

I have been waiting weeks to get all the diapers I bought around Earth Day in April and finally got the last order in the mail yesterday. This is what I have so far. I think that I am good for now and once bub is born and we know if we have a boy or girl I will get a few more (maybe a couple prints) that are gender specific MMsCds.pdfTop row: BumGenius 4.0 Artist series in Aplix (2) blue (2) orange (2) black and (2) red; Pack of (6) Charlie Banana's w/ snaps (these are so soft inside) Under set of CB are (1) Ribbit BumGenius Elemential w/ snaps and (1) Clementine BumGenius Freestyle w/ snapsMiddle row: (3) BumGenius Flip covers in Butternut, Noodle and Sweet; (1) BumGenius 4.0 pocket w/ aplix in Grasshopper; (2) BumGenius 4.0 pocket w/ snaps in Twilight and MoonbeamBottom row: (2) Rumparooz in Crimson Red and Pumpkin Orange; (2) Happy Hineys in Latte (aplix) and Black (snaps); and (1) FuzziBunz in Choco truffle. Along the top and right side of the picture are all the inserts (newborn and reg) and flip organic prefolds. This weekend I am going to start the diaper prep and DH has promised to put up a clothes line for me. I am very excited. Can I ask a couple questions about the prep: Do I wash them in hot or cold and do I add detergent? I am kinda assuming that I don't need to do the entire cold, warm with detergent and final rinse cycles when they are brand new right? Can i just wash them several times in a row without drying them in between? Please let me know what you did! Thanks!!!P.S. Why is my picture not showing?? erg......
