    For those of you that plan to cloth diaper cloth wipes are easy as well since you can just stuff it in the diaper and throw it all in the wash instead of seperating the throw aways from the laundry.

    A CHEAP to make diaper cream and easy to make is Beeswax (I pay 1.00 per 2 batches) Coconut oil (i get free trade and everything $10.00 for 14 oz and a couple drops of whatever essential oil you want. It can also be used as a yeast killer and everything else depending on your needs.

    you set your pot up like a double broiler (I use a small saucepan and a cereal bowl LOL) you melt the beeswax (i can get you the exact measure by tonight) and then add the coconut oil until its melted and combined. take it off the burner and drop your oils in. put in glass jar and let it set over night

    I get it at the natural food store. Along with my coconut oil and essential oils.

    ETA: I also make my own cloth wipe solution if anyone wants the recipe (withOUT the baby wash)

    Right now I'm trying to figure out insurance, I have none. I am going to a "Pregnancy Support" place tomorrow to apply for Medicaid and figure out a place to go for a prenatal appointment. Darn conservative states and their lack of medical care for poor people.

    what about Planned Parenthood? do they have one where you are? Texas is a conservative state & we have one.

    The Pregnancy Support place is similar to a Planned Parenthood. The closest Planned Parenthood to me is like 5 hours away.
