Sorry it seems I only come on here to ask questions at the mo, and never to generally post, will try and get on here more I promise!
Well the 2 nights ago I showed dh the rough idea of the jo fold on the 40 x 40 bamboo square, and how to fasten a nippa etc etc.
Last night I found him a doll, gave him a refresher lesson on the fold and handed him all the bits and bobs. He managed to get a jo fold, fleece liner, nippa and wrap all on the doll - quite impressed really, even though I then held the doll and tucked all over hanging bits back in and I'm still only 18 weeks. (He knows me well and if he didn't do it properly the first time he would be doing it every night until the baby arrived
Well my newborn nappy collection consists of 16 x bamboo squares (40 x40) , a popper bimble size 0, and 4 size 1 prefolds. 4 nb bummis wraps and 2 xs rikki. Dh seems to like the look of the bimble now as its easy to do, so I'm tempted to buy him some more. However I don't want to get any more newborn nappies due to the fact I have more than enough size 1's and onesizes.
So bascially my whole waffle is just asking the question at what week was your lo or both / all born and what was their birth weight?
I obviously don't know when / how / weight this little thing will be and to be honest a bulky (or bulkier) bum doesn't bother me so might just train him more on my size 1 little lambs and show him how to nippa the front down incase it comes out under 7 lbs and then I'll let him loose on the bumgenius later!
I'm holding off washing all my new nappy collection until the summer (when will it come?), although hasn't stopped me packing my newborn nappy bag, which only need the liners prewashed. But size 1's need a good wash and some of the new bg's.
By the way yet another ? - did you prewash your babies tiny clothes, I seem to have masses already, most of which I bought in the sales when I thought I was late or in the middle of the cycle ever hopeful that it would be that month. So that would be another load in itself.
Oh so exciting and worrying at the same time. - I would have my hospital bag packed already but dh told me its way to early - can't help being organsied.
Ps it looks like I already won the arguement of disps in hosp cloth at home we had about 10 weeks ago
- don't know if he will wash them, but will have bags sorted of about 10 nappies and enough wraps all lined up for him to grab and bring to me if needed in hospital.
