Just got back from my checkup, and so far so good! I was a little dissapointed that they weighed me BEFORE I got to empty my tremendously full bladder... can't be too accurate if you ask me!! I definately gained more weight than I was hoping, but hopefully I will get outside for a good walk later on this afternoon!
Once again, my doc said this baby is a girl! I can't remember exactly what the heart rate was, but it was either 152 or 162. So, only 17 weeks left to wait and see if she's right...
I've been thinking a lot about cloth diapers lately. It would be great to save a bit of money, or to at least not literally throw it away on diapers! I calculated how much I probably spend on diapers in a year, and it's about $800-$1000!! That's insane! And Rowan has been in diapers for almost 2 years!
Last night I ordered some fancy looking cloth diapers from a webiste called jamtots.com. Just a few to try out with Rowan for now, and then if I get the hang of it and decide I like it, I will order some more cheaper ones for the baby. I ordered two kinds. The first kind is called Baby Kangas. They are made in Canada, so that's cool! They have a waterproof cover and snaps to close them. They are also a one size fits all diaper, so they are supposed to fit from 8-30 pounds! I think they snap smaller for newborns. I ordered the cornflower colour I think. Here's a picture of them:
I also ordered a few called Bum Genius 2.0. They are very similar, but they close with velcro instead. The only colour that was available was Butternut. Here's a picture of them:
The diapers that I will most likely buy more of, because they are cheaper (out comes the Menno in me!) are from a website called kidalog.net. They are also Canadian. I like the Baby Love diapers with the breathable waterproof covers. Here's a picture:
What do you all think of cloth diapers?
