    Congrats on nearly being in 2nd trimester!! How's the job hunting going?
    I did water aerobics before getting pregnant but stopped during first trimester and think I will start again in a couple of weeks

    Thanks! So excited to have almost made it.... Job hunting SUCKS! I have applied for close to 50 jobs and nothing... Such a tough market at the moment

    Fel how are you going with your blood pressure? Fingers crossed bubs is doing well.

    J and button must be due to have bubs any day can't wait to here.

    Lilsmurfy glad shower went well and you were spoilt, not long now for you either.

    We are wrapping ds but are planning to
    Transition to ergo pouches by 3 months. Check them out as they apparently help you transition across to having arms out etc. one of my friends swears by them.

    MsLa good luck today. Sounds like it is best to check it out.

    Loony wave! I know you have posted but my memory is shot.

    Maybe baby how are you going? You must be getting close too.

    Okay need some help choccie posted ages ago about what to wash mcn in and what solution to use for cloth wipes. Does anyone remember? Choccie if you are still reading I am sorry I can't find the post and am living in a post baby haze. I am hoping to transition to mcn in the next week but used some yesterday as a trial then realised I had no idea how to wash them etc. clever huh?

    Okay I am off to try to do
    A few chores before bubs wakes.

    From my understanding, you dry pail the MCNs until you're ready to wash them, then you can wash them in any detergent that doesn't contain enzymes. I'm not too sure of the cloth wipe solution though.

    How's Tate?

    Fingers crossed it's not PE Toni. Good thing your OB is on the case though.

    Thinking Of you in 45 mins MrsLA.

    That quilt is beautiful Smurfy!!!

    Re MCNs, dry Pailing is advised (squirting off any solids though) and washing around 40 degrees. I think you can use just a bit of regular detergent, but Eco detergent is best. Only a small amount or it can clog the nappy up.

    I bought some detergent from cushie tushies for MCNs.

    Dry in sun where possible to get rid of stains/bacteria!!!

    Thanks ladies. I will order some from cushie tushie.

    Smurfy he is doing really well sleeping and feeding is coming along. I am adjusting to the lack of sleep. Trying to rest as much as possible to help with the recovery from c section. My mil has stayed a couple of times to help settle him and night after feeds which has been awesome as I have been able to get a block or two of two hours sleep. Okay he is awake and ready for a feed x

    Clothes airer inside, in front of heater? And take into sun when you can. Are the AIOs?

    You can also finish off on low heat in dryer if they won't get properly dry from airing.

    Sage - when DD was still in nappies I used to rinse the nappies at the end of each day (obviously the ones with BM Id rinse straight away!) and let them dry overnight then pop in the nappy pail. I used to put a piece of cloth pegged inside the pail with a little bit of essential oils just to hide the "smell" then every couple of days do a wash. I just used the "Earths Choice" Sensitive liquid (but only a 1/2 amount to what I would use for clothes) and a little splash of Dettol Sanitising rinse to each load. Every now and then (maybe every couple of months?) when it was nice sunny weather I would do a strip wash with Rockin' Green to get rid of any build up of detergents of smells. That process always kept DDs mcns in excellent condition and Ill do the same with this bubs.

    Oh and yes, a clothes airer in front of a heater / fire will work just fine in winter. We cant dry outside in winter here either (Im in Adelaide).
