What works for one baby, doesn't always work for another!

Well, after finding the fitted love for my little guy, I assumed fitteds were for everybody. They're not. Fitteds don't work on my new little girl! I had the most AWESOME girly fitted newborn stash for her, too! I just couldn't get them to work. The fitteds were great... it was covering them that I had trouble with. I tried wool, but she peed right out of the diapers and wool. And then I tried PUL but it ate at her tiny legs. I was getting so frustrated that I gave up and bought some AIOs (the Bum-Ware Organics, by the way) and it was just.....

AHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!! A huge sigh of relief. My fitteds for her were GORGEOUS! 6 Sticky Peas NRSS, 6 Scuttlebutts, 5 other various newborn fitteds... but I was miserable.

So my lesson? Just because I love one type of diaper on one baby, doesn't mean I'll love it on the other. :)

The Law of Diaper Nature

I just don't get it.... I don't get it how babies instinctively KNOW you are putting on a brand-new diaper on them! You put it on, you think, "How cute!" and you admire it for a bit. And then you hear it..... PLLLLPPPPPHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!! The christening of the new diaper. It is really the law of diaper nature that your baby will poop in the new diaper within 10 minutes of putting it on them for the first time. :)

Sticky Peas, How I Love Thee!

These are my Sticky Peas... One of the TWO brands of diapers I still own after reaching Stash Nirvana!

Sticky Peas are a highly sought-after diaper at the moment... They're one people have to "score". Literally, they go up for sale at 2 o'clock, and they are sold out by 2:01. People sit and refresh, refresh, refresh right before they go on sale, and they hope to get one. There might be 10 diapers stocked, and 150 people going for them. They are TOUGH to get!

Why are they so sought-after? They're AWESOME!!!! They come in adorable prints, they are well-made, and they are so very absorbent! Inside is a soaker, and an included doubler that is wool-backed. They come in sized fitteds- with snaps, or in a one-size diaper that can be pinned or Snappied.

I was lucky enough to get to "know" Claudia- the workhorse behind Sticky Peas. And I was SOOO very spoiled by her- all but 2 of the diapers shown were custom-made for me. Claudia is a very sweet Superwoman!!!

The newest diapers she is making are newborn-sized.... So obviously I had to try those out on my teeny, tiny new girl! And they don't disappoint- they're WONDERFUL! The stack on the left is newborn diapers.

So here it is.... a big chunk of what got me to Stash Nirvana! :)
