In the hospital they provided us with the coolest diapers. Maybe it was just the naivete of it all, but they really were the best. They had this awesome yellow stripe that turned blue when the diaper was wet, and never leaked. Since then we have experimented with several different brands...and let's just say, the hospital knows what they are doing!
- Cheaper does not equal the same quality as name brand. You get what you pay for...unfortunately.
- Same goes for the wipes.
- Same goes for the wipe containers and their "user friendly" (or not so "user friendly") opening system.
- Different brands fit differently. (Should have learned this one from the clothes - little tip for all the expectant mothers out there: Gerber runs SMALL)
So, until the cloth diapers become our main diaper, which could be any day now, we recommend Pampers Swaddlers.
One thing we haven't figured out is how to tell which package of swaddlers has the "Wetness Indicator" (aka: yellow to blue pee stripe). They all look the same to our new parent eyes.
In other news, Elijah does not like having his fingernails cut. The first few times were fine, but let's just say that he doesn't hold still very well when he's tired...which we all know leads to the experience being a much more painful one. :-)
