I have a mix, mostly prefolds with bummis wraps...i have 12 bleached and 12 unbleached...i like the unbleached much better. A few Aio's when we do finally get out of the house..i havent left the house yet..still a bit nervous. I also have a orgainc caboose cotton cover that doesnt fit any more...babe was 10+2 at birth...i may need to get some more prefolds soon. He's getting so big so fast.

Great to meet you on the site. I have a 4yr old and a 6 month old and we are a breastfeeding, cloth diapering, non vaxing, co-sleeping family. Hard to find these nowadays! I am also a member of La Leche League (North Charlotte group). I am interested in doing a homebirth with my nest baby. How old are your kids?

Yes it was with them, i still get emails from that group everyday. We are not homeschooling right now, but i like to keep it up incase something is close by where i can take my toddler and or my older ones if there home that day.

Yes, maybe we did!

Would it have been with the "Explore and Discover" group? I generally post our regional outings on NC Unschoolers.

Congratulations on your homebirth!!
