went overboard! (CD related)

So after noticing I had no diaper covers to fit NB/Small diapers I have, I sold some stuff on e-bay, got some PP, and ended up buying from several moms on here....Not paying attention to amount of covers or price I was paying, in total.

I ended up buying 41 covers!! 41!! REALLY?!! Not to mention the price I paid over all...which is not bad, but it is not like we could afford it(still owe midwife $600, was supposed to be paid off by 36 weeks....other wise she charges $1000 more...I am over 36 weeks now.). Cloth diapers are addicting, with the amount I paid, plus amount I paid on the diapers that needed covers, I could have probably bought a ton of AI2/AIO/pocket diapers!!

I need to go through and see what ones are NB only, and what ones can go though small stage, because I need some of both, and I am sure once it is divided into sizes the number 41 wont seem so huge(since I have less than 50 diapers between nb and small sizes)

Okay, not as bad as I thought!

17 diapers will fit right after birth(starting at 6lbs)

28 soon after

31 with in the first few weeks

26 after the first month or so

35 will fit until LO is ready for mediums(up to 18 lbs"ish")

I would say that as far as diaper covers go, you have the situation covered!

We are all a bunch of CD addicts here, so no judgement from me! I have trying to be good and wait until our baby girl is here before I go to crazy buying any one diaper. But, I wouldn't say my stash is very thrifty this time around. I am trying a new strategy this time. I am trying to limit the brands of diapers and just buy what I really want. I am tired of B/S/T and DH is tired of the variety in our stash. It is a lot of fun buying girlie fluff though!

We'll see how it goes.

I have a billion mediums, DD has been in them basically since she started CDs.

I am now wishing I had not bought any of these. Our power went out for 10 hours, all our food went bad and we don't get paid until the 31st. LOVELY!!

Re: went overboard! (CD related)

I'm sorry to hear about your power and money situation!

I totally hear you. I just started CDing my 2 year old daughter and am expecting another bundle in early September. Everybody tells me how CD is hard and messy. No one warned me that shopping for it (especially online) could be addictive. And the worst thing is that impulsive shopping is just too easy with Paypal!
