No, I don't have a crib.  But I do have a bassinet that she has grown out of and a bouncy chair.  I do have a pack and play now that she has grown out of the bassinet.  The bassinet was one that daughter was going to use, but since they had to go out of state for the adoption, they purchased a small travel crib.  So, I used it at my house.  GD is the 21st baby that has used it, and her name is printed on the bottom of it, as are all the other babies who used it.  Oh, I also have a high chair.

I am so far behind the times... I was looking at biokleen's bac-out yesterday for organic stains.. and came across some pictures of colorful diapers.. got to looking around and I had no idea they had these snap diapers  http://www.chooseydiapers.com/new.shtml ... kinda cool.. kinda expensive

DIL uses all these eco friendly cloth nappies .
They come in all colours , designs , personalised .
Time consuming , but she reckons nicer on baby's bottom , and earth friendly .
no landfill sites full of disposable nappies , and they are very cute I must say .

Those diapers are really cool! I remember when I had wee ones using cloth diaper covers that snapped rather than those horrid, steamy plastic pants with the elastic legs. They only came in white back then, but colors would have made diaper changing a joyous event, LOL.

LOL.. I forgot about the plastic diaper covers.. I'll admit to it.. I used disposables .. I'm guilty

Well Laurie, I did too sometimes. Traveling with cloth diapers was a bit tricky. A friend used to let them slosh in soapy water as they drove along...I couldn't quite get into that.

Pen, what is a snowplayer? I have to ask b/c I'm envisioning people just chaning their child and leaving diapers where ever they want. Gosh, I hope that's not what you mean. Those things (and I do use them) can be toxic to animals if ingested, and if swallowed in large enough of a size can cause a blockage.

Holli.. I think it's when you take your child's overloaded wet diaper and roll it into a ball and then allow it to freeze.. it's a poor mans hockey puck :)

Oh, Laurie....yuck!

Shhhhhh Luise.. Holli will fall for it.. just watch

I seriously did fall for it. I had to finish my test before I could type. I've been flabbergasted for the past half hour.

Thanks.  :)

Hey have you seen OW around.. my dd said that she might be heading for the Dallas area and said that she would gladly transport the girl/rats if OW will take them.. I've gotta find her around here.

holliberri

I still don't have an answer to my question. What are snowplayers doing with diapers?

LOL. OW hasn't been on since this morning. Isn't her rat male? I'm guessing that might not mix with your girls, or it might mix too well. Not sure which. Ha.
