This month’s topic is your “unicorn diaper.”
Is there a particular diaper, color or print you are dying to have? Maybe it’s hard to find, or not in your budget; is there one diaper you would just love to add to your stash?
As Brennan starts to ask about the potty I have a decision to make. Put the diapers away or make some sales. Several of our diapers need repaired in the first place and we never got it done. Obviously, we didn’t need them as we got by without them all this time. Some styles I’m just not in love with (and some I have NIP and have never used-as I make a win now and again, I’m replacing those colors/prints with pockets in the hope that I can sell off the others). Now is she potty trained? No, not by a long shot, but she does tell me if she wets and/or if she needs to use the potty in a ‘business’ type of sense. Unfortunately, she uses the same word no matter what so it’s hard to know what she really needs. She has always been more sensitive to wetness, which is why I’m glad for the stay dry layer of most of my diapers!
So, I’ve had lots of styles of diapers, but what would be left to have? Oh there’s a lot I would TAKE for sure. Right now I want to replace the mirror and dazzle diapers I have in other bumGenius styles, and perhaps nab some of their new prints. I’d love to have a Chicago Bears diaper, too! I’d love to try the OsoCozy stay dry topped prefold, as well, to see how that does. So intriguing!
Otherwise, when we get a shot at newborn diapers again, I’d love to make small investments in some aios or pocket diapers for that newborn stretch. I do have a ton of prefolds, but I would love to have some cute prints for that stage, too. We’re saving so much money that, I mean, how could we not 😉
So in general, add new prints, maybe a Chicago Bears diaper, maybe some different colors that we don’t have, and newborn dipes when the time comes again. Fun, right?!?
I had so much fun with newborn diapers! I was just thinking last night…hmm…I’m cloth diapered two with mostly the same diapers, how many expenses could I justify with my savings? 😉
Personally, I’m not very good about allowing myself to spend money on something because I saved money on something (related or not). I want to put all the money I save into something major….college accounts, retirement, or maybe a big trip. We all need a little treat now and then, though!…definitely something I need to learn:)
Oh, and I just got a custom Pittsburgh Steelers diaper cover that I’m VERY excited about:) I figured that a cover would be good b/c then if the baby needs changed during the big game, I can just (hopefully) wipe the cover dry and replace whatever I’m using inside! 🙂
