Brand new stash, need to wash, have questions!
Hi everyone!!! Thanks for all your help when I posted initally that I was trying to decide what to get for our stash. We finally have it complete, well at least enough to start off with.
I did get instructions on washing when I bought them but it's been awhile since I bought some of them so I just want to make sure I have it right. Once they're all washed up, I will post pictures of them! We got some really cute prints for the pockets :)
Anyway, we have....
6 small size AMP hemp fitteds, each one comes with a doubler too. We have three newborn size Bummis super whisper wraps for these, and we also have fleece liners since we will mostly use these overnight.
6 one size AMP pockets with 6 AMP bamboo inserts
12 prefolds, we bought the Bummis newborn pack. (I'm a little worried about these, it says they only go to nine pounds and big babies run in the family...so I'm worried she's going to come out 9 pounds and never fit them, what a waste!!)
We have soft water and a top-loading washer, and got Allen's Naturally detergent. First question - my washer has a small/med/large load setting for water level - what should I set it to for diapers? And in that case, how should I adjust the detergent amount? I was told half a capful (which seems like NOTHING) per load, but I forgot about the water level so I don't know if I need to use more or less than that?
And for the initial wash to prep them...I should wash the natural fibers three times each, right? Do I need to dry in between each wash? And can I mix the hemp fitteds, cotton prefolds, and bamboo inserts all in the same load? Then for the covers, fleece pockets and fleece liners, I would wash those separately and only once?
Sorry for all the questions, haha...my baby brain is failing me badly lately! :rolleyes:
