    Stalking!
    Yours looks a lot like mine! I have some things, but I also registered on Amazon. Even cloth diapering too! I have been steadily building a stash of second hand ones.

    I am a first-timer, so I have no advice except some stuff I learned. (ignore me if you know this! Just thought I'd share, since I had NO CLUE about either of them!)

    -You can't use most diaper rash creams with cloth diapers since it ruins them. I'd register for a specific cream (there's one on Amazon), or just buy that.

    -A lot of people suggest using disposables until the meconium passes, as it can also stain cloth diapers really badly. (This might not matter to you. I'm planning on using mine for future children and figure if they have to wear hand-me-down diapers they should at least not have poo stains :haha:)

    -You don't have wipes on here! If you're anything like me, you'll forget all about them if they aren't on the list! We're planning on reusable ones so we can just throw them in with diapers. I've been making them from random flannel scraps, but you can buy them fairly cheap too.

    Yup! I've read up on the rash cream. Been browsing Amazon for organic stuff!

    I was definitely planning to use disposables for bit. I have 1 pack of NBs, so if I need more I'll buy them one pack at a time. Good tip!

    Oh good! I was totally baffled by the meconium thing. Had I not stumbled on it, I'd have no clue. I did the same thing. Just planning on one (big!) pack of NBs and disposable wipes. Hopefully that will do. If not, I'll deal.

    For cream: I've registered for Grandma El's, but got some fleece liners to be extra safe. (I couldn't find one that all of the brands of the diapers I had recommended!)

    Obviously, you've been really thorough. Good job!
