CD stash revisited

So, I pretty much have the same diapers as before (the whole selling the old ones to get new ones practice has not started!)

I now have:
14 OS BG 3.0 (4 white, 2 yellow, 4 pink, 3 zinnia, 1 blue)
9 medium HH (ballerinas, ballet shoes, mums)
1 Blueberry minky (pink on chocolate)
2 large Swaddlebees AIO snaps (pink martini and lavender)
2 OS Swaddlebees (pink martini and lime)
2 medium FB (purple and pink gingham)
1 Grobaby shell and 3 soakers (purple)
1 Softbums shell and 3 soakers (lt pink)
2 Mommy's Touch OS AIO (pink and hot pink)
1 medium GAD (Hot pink with black)
1 Smartipants (lt pink)
6 Swaddlebees prefolds w/1 onesize snap cover (pink)

Yes, there are some that I like more than others. Yes, I should probably sell some. But I like that I have a variety and I can use different diapers based on what our daily schedule is going to be. Now that DD is almost 9 months, I am really happy that I have been buying more diapers with snaps! When we go out, I almost always grab the grobaby and the softbums. The bumgenius are still one of my favorites and are the only ones we use at nighttime. Unfortuntely, since they are nine months old they are definately showing they are well loved. For whatever reason, I hardly use my FB. On a positive note, my small FB look practically new and I will be trying to sell those!

Update on Tiny Bubbles

Let's just say that after being in RI for 5 weeks one of the things I was missing the most was my washing machine. Yes, I said it. Even though I have a total love/hate relationship with it and the machine has broken numerous times, despite the fact its only a few years old. "Why did you miss your washing machine?" You might ask. The main reason is that my washing machine does a pretty good job of cleaning clothes (when her mind is made up to do so). I tried to cloth diaper full time while in RI but towards the end, DD was getting nasty rashes and I had to wash the diapers like 5 times to get them (somewhat) clean.

So, when I happened to be on FB and saw The Natural Baby Company was giving away samples of their new detergent, Tiny Bubbles, I knew I had to try some. I do love my Country Save but I was willing to try something else.

To be completely honest, my microfiber inserts stunk and I was thinking I was going to have to strip/bleach my diapers when I got home. I wanted to try Tiny Bubbles once before doing so, however. I was amazed that after one wash routine, my diapers almost smelled like new. Almost. I was relived knowing that bleach would not be needed! Another positive is that DD does not get the same rashes as before! Needless to say, I am extremely happy with Tiny Bubbles and will be sad when its all gone.
