Yes I am!
Alhamdulillah, initial planned to start cloth diapering on baby Ryan success..clap clap to myself!
Eventho I'm still new and still crawling in cd'ing my lil ones, but for me.. its already a big achievement ;)
Remember my 3 master plans for the newborn http://mommynadia.blogspot.com/2010/10/planning-for-newborn-baby.html..InsyaAllah, I'm striving to make all of those things happened!
*Ya Allah,mudahkan segala urusan hambamu ini..**moga bonus tahun ni masyuk..Amin!!!
Talking about CD, its not a new thing...ramai dah mommy yg success cd'ing their babies and kids..thumbs up!
After considering many factors, I think I'm ready to cd my baby too..
I have planned to study and get as much info as I can since my early pregnancy..
Due to time constraint, I just managed to collect all the info by 3rd trimester..pity me ;(
So many things to know about cd..a lot of types and terms, and even the brands ..until kadang2 rase lost sgt..
Stress pun ada duk fikir how to start..what to buy, how many cd to buy...pening betul..
Lucky, I had someone who I called my cd guru to help..yes she's the adorable Pn Farrah..
I email her, with a long list of questions, and she replied me with a very detail and comprehensive answers..
Yeap..after few times mailing session,then I have decided on how to start on my CD project!
Thanks gal for all the tips..it really help me alot!
Bukan amik jalan pintas, but I think with a good recommendation from the expert, really make my CD journey a smooth sailing one and the main thing..I can save a lot of $$$ and time..
But, unfortunately, baru sempat buat sekali lawatan rasmi ke Tiny Tapir @ Bangsar Village, few days after, sudah deliver..aiyark!
Mujur during motherhood expo earlier, dah sempat beli 2 set Grobaby AI2 CD..
The 1st week of my cd journey , I wasn't cd'ing baby Ryan..*its ok..but I did bf Ryan...more important!..hehehe ;)
After all the jaundice story, 2nd week, I started to make online buying @ TT..
No more compromise..dah nekad kali ni...!
The Grobaby shell with traditional muslin square aka kain lampin
Sementara menunggu order sampai, I used lampin and the grobaby shell and Alhamdulillah, it works well..no leaking at all..cuma every 2-3 hours kena check to ensure no poop or leak..
During my 2nd week, I just cd'ing Ryan during day time..not so confident to wear him at night..mommy malas lagik!
Few days later, the prefold stuff arrived..and after many sessions of pre-wash, I immediately started to use the lovely prefold..
5 colorful Bumwears prefolds, 1 Thirsties Diaper Cover and 2 Snappi..
Yes..for the 1st month, I have decided to use pefold and lampin with the diaper covers..
Sebab during this early month, the baby tend to poop alot ..so we really need to have many diapers at this stage..
So if I get start with prefold and lampin dulu,boleh lah jimat sket..ye lah every 2-3 hours nak kena tukar dah! Plus..beli cd cantek2, sayang pulak nak kena cuci selalu sb asyik kena poop baby ;'(..wuhahahahah
Ryan in 5 colorful prefolds..
Owh sila jangan gelak dgn hasil tangan sy..every time nak pakai prefold ni, Ryan start nangis..
Skrang dah pandai...cantek sket!

Alhamdulillah, Ryan dah lebih sebulan..
He already has a stable bowel movement..
Starting from last Sunday and Alhamdulillah till today, I have started using the cloth diaper..
And to challenge myself, I have stop buying the disposed diapers too..
Even I don't have any diaper spare at home..*tipulah..Abg Adam punye, ada lah...kalau dah terdesak???;)
So it really keeps me bz with the laundry session as my CD stash baru je 3,4 keping..;(
* Alhamdulillah ebm stock project tak terganggu as the ebm stocking project is my 1st priority!
Later on my next CD entry, I will share on how I started using my preferable choice of All In 2 (AI2) type of CD and my bz routine keep tracking the cd changing time to get Ryan cd changing schedule for the caregiver soon..
My new GroVia AI2 ..
*thanks che mimi ..jadik runner I pergi beli kat motherhood expo last fri..;)
As of now, I'm enjoying cd'ing my lil one..
Even a lil bz and kelam kabut during the 1st week of d'journey..
Alhamdulillah..I managed to handle it well..*winkwink
Ask myself.. why I want to cd my 2nd baby??
2 simple reasons..$$$ and I want to reduce smell of dispo diaper in my bathroom..simple rite!
Yeap..hopefully I'm contributing to Go Green Campaign too ;) * Aku semut kecil!
So, in order to achieve my 1st goal..I have to ensure Pn Nadia aka myself.. tidak terikut2 nafsu membeli cd yg cantek2, walaupun kadang2 mmg SANGAT teruja ..En Bie silalah monitor!
Currently, my cd stash just enuff to cover for 2-3 days usage ..next month maybe kena tambah sket for nursery plak..
At this early stage, priority hanya untuk basics used..enuff for 4-5 days rotations on weekdays..
Later, bila dah stable, baru boleh berjoli2 beli untuk nafsu mata ;)
Seriously, kalau diikutkan, banyak juga money kena invest to start cd'ing my 2nd baby..
I guess, maybe the 1st year ni, I will only generate less savings using the cd..but in long run, when all the cd stash boleh diturunkan untuk next baby,then only I will get the returns..InsyaAllah..*Kena start calculate ROI..
Semoga usaha murni saya ni berjaya..Amin..
