I love mail.
Stuffed to the brim, you see.
From left to right: Snappis are apparently the easiest way to fasten diapers anymore, so I got some of those. The green thing is a hanging diaper pail, which seemed like it'd be useful to stuff grody diapers in. The polka-dotted thingies are washable breast pads, which are by all accounts comfier and softer than the disposable kind, so we shall see. The mighty stack of beige is prefold diapers.
From top to bottom: The ones in plastic are Bummis diaper covers in a variety of colors and patterns. The four below that are Thirsties diaper covers. They go over the prefolds to keep them from leaking all over. The bottom two are Thirsties pocket diapers and are hopefully super-absorbent for overnight.
We decided to go for cloth for a variety of reasons. We both like that it'll be nicer against his skin than disposables, and we both generally prefer reusable things to disposable anything just on principle. Noah likes the fact that they're way cheaper (in the long run) than disposables, and I like them because they're freaking adorable (if a bit on the crunchy hippie side).
The cutest one. It has rocket ships. Babies love rocket ships.
We're planning on using disposables for the first couple of weeks just until we get the hang of having a baby around, and then we'll start using the extremely cute fluffy stuff.
Bonus: Bruce also loves mail.
