1. Diapers, disposables or cloth?:
disposable. After one kid I'm even more sure im not the washing poop out of clothes type. When DS1 has had diarrhea or bad blow outs I usually toss the clothes as well. Standing and scrubbing poop is not for me! yuck.

1. Diapers, disposables or cloth?: One bag of NB disposables, then prefolds with covers through the small and medium sizes. Our stash is doing great from DS1, so we have almost nothing to buy for DS2 for the first year or two. Biggrin

2. Favorite brand of diapers: My favorites are the Bummis Super Whisper Wraps, though it's fun to experiment with different brands.

3. Favorite brand of wipes: I use baby washcloths. Good grip, no mess, and you just throw them in the wash with the rest of the diapers.

4. Favorite diaper ointment: I adore the diaper rash salve from northernessence.com. I got some as a free sample and loved it so much, I bought more! We don't get many rashes over here, but that stuff is fabulous when they do appear.

5. Changing Table (Yes or No): No. Just a towel or a pad on the floor and we're good to go.

6. Favorite pump (if you are BFing): Did the Lasinoh manual pump last time. About $30. Good enough to get me through 1.5-2 years, but pretty much a "one baby" thing.

7. Favorite brand of bottles: I use the glass bottles. Until they're old enough to discover how cool gravity is.

8. Favorite brand of pacifier: Not something we used much of.

9. Favorite baby shampoo/wash: Did a little J&J. Did a little Aveeno. Did a little off-brand stuff. No real "favorites" emerged.

10. Favorite swaddler: DS1 hated swaddling with a passion. I need to find out where I hid my Miracle Blanket and have it handy for DS2.

11. Do you use a sleep sack?: DS1 hated confinement. I've got a handmade sleep sack I'll trot out for DS2 and see if it's better received.

12. Gown or footed sleeper?: Footies!

13. Onesies or side-snap shirts?: Onesies!

14. What do you use for burp cloths?: Gerber burp cloths & handmade burp cloths from shower gifts. Also the occasional diaper or towel.

15. Infant seat or convertible?: Convertible until neck strength improves. That was a mistake we made with DS1.

16. Bassinet, Pack-n-Play, Co-sleeper, or straight into the crib?: In theory, first bassinet, then crib. We'll see what reality brings. Smile

1. Diapers, disposables or cloth?: disposables
2. Favorite brand of diapers: not sure yet, I plan to buy Huggies and Pampers, andtry a few of each. I got some samples and I think I liked Pampers better for newborns. Whichever one it was that had a good cutout for their belly button! lol
3. Favorite brand of wipes: I am hoping to use something natural and for sensitive skin, both DH and I are pretty sensitive to stuff so I expect baby will be too.
4. Favorite diaper ointment: I hear Desitin is good...will probably try a few again!
5. Changing Table (Yes or No): no, just changing pad on her dresser
6. Favorite pump (if you are BFing): not sure yet but I don't think I want a manual one
7. Favorite brand of bottles: I am loving the look and feel of tommee tippee, especially because I want to be breastfeeding 99% of the time so I want the bottle to be as close to that as possible. I've heard they leak though, so I just have two little ones right now that we will try first before stocking up.
8. Favorite brand of pacifier: lol, I have so many!! So far I have been buying whatever looks the cutest (provided they are bpa free and orthodontic)
9. Favorite baby shampoo/wash: totally not sure yet. Probably going to buy something locally that is made with organic/natural/local ingredients.
10. Favorite swaddler: not sure!
11. Do you use a sleep sack?: we definitely will!
12. Gown or footed sleeper?: I like the footie ones Smile but I hear the gown ones are easier for diaper changes.
13. Onesies or side-snap shirts?: I have a few of each
14. What do you use for burp cloths?: don't have any just yet
15. Infant seat or convertible?: convertible
16. Bassinet, Pack-n-Play, Co-sleeper, or straight into the crib?: hmm. Probably straight into the crib because we are getting a mini one. But if I can convince DH to spend the extra money, I would like a bassinet first.

1. Diapers, disposables or cloth?: we use disposables
2. Favorite brand of diapers: Huggies, but I'm not married to them, we use other brands sometimes
3. Favorite brand of wipes: Huggies, definitely, but the Costco ones are not bad
4. Favorite diaper ointment: don't really have a favorite
5. Changing Table (Yes or No): No. We have a crip/changer combo and we sometimes use the changing table when they are small, but usually we just change them on the couch, bed, or floor
6. Favorite pump (if you are BFing): I hate pumping and I have never gotten my kids to take bottles, so I'm not an expert on pumps. For occasional pumping, the Medela hand pump is not bad--I don't like electric pumps because I feel like a cow being milked by a machine, but if I had to pump everyday, I'm sure I would need one.
7. Favorite brand of bottles: I don't use them
8. Favorite brand of pacifier: I don't use them
9. Favorite baby shampoo/wash: I like Aveeno fragrance-free baby wash (my 3 yr old has eczema, and anything scented might irritate it), and I don't have a preference about shampoo
10. Favorite swaddler: Kiddopotamus SwaddeMe
11. Do you use a sleep sack?: I did with DD but not with DS
12. Gown or footed sleeper?: gown when they are little for easy night diaper changes, footled sleeper when they are older and can go the night without being changed
13. Onesies or side-snap shirts?: I've always used onesies
14. What do you use for burp cloths?: with DS, I had some nice ones that a friend made that are shaped to stay on your shoulder
15. Infant seat or convertible?: infant seat for when they are little
16. Bassinet, Pack-n-Play, Co-sleeper, or straight into the crib?: we have used a bassinet and also had them in our bed sometimes with the others. I am considering doing a crib sidecar set up this time, but I don't know if I will actually do that or not
