I've spent $732 on diapers... And my first baby's due in March.
UPDATE! See photos of my mountain on Page 4.
I can always resell the ones that don't work out for us, right? That's what I keep telling myself.
212 Diapers & Covers
26 AIOs and Pockets
87 PFs and Flats
55 Covers (Including 4 Wool)
And this is aside from the...
Stuff on my registry (not too much... now!)
16 Training Pants
13 Snappis (Not my fault-- most came free with purchase!)
Many Assorted Accessories (Wet Bags, Wipe Warmers, Changing Pads, Etc.)
...because we are planning on ECing from birth.
That's right-- this is all for a kid who probably won't need diapers after 18-24 months.
Allow me to mount a defense.
-Per above, I will resell what doesn't work for us! Yeah, I will!
-Not TOO outrageous, considering most are new or like-new, right? Right?
-In that vein, these are about 98% "name" brands, like BGE, FB, GM, Mutts, Thirsties, Bummis, OsoCozy, Imse Vimse, GMD, etc.
-This includes pretty much all possible sizes (from a few Preemies to OS/Large).
-I know this is awfully cover-intensive, especially considering DH and I will be dual WAHP and, with ECing, Baby will probably spend a lot of nakey-butt and coverless PF/fitted time at home. But! I am planning a lot of T-shirt/cute diaper (cover)/BabyLegs combos for outside the house, so it's kind of like... part of my clothing budget... right? Right?!?! (Did I mention I have 24 pairs of BabyLegs? Not that I paid full price...)
This is not at all the beginning of an addiction.
Not at all.
It's right smack dab in the middle of one.
