I can completely identify with the astounding number of diapers and how many times you change Eli's clothes. Emma goes through about 5 outfits a day. I'm wondering, though, how many times do YOU have to change your clothes?

I am sure Cathy doesn't wear clothes - just PJs. At this stage of the baby game, brushing your own teeth is a major accomplishment. LeighAnn

My friend has 5 kids, 7 yrs and under. Last week her husband came home at 5:30 pm to a cranky 2 yr. old only to discover, her diaper hadn't been changed since 7:30 am!
Don't panic, my friend did change her newborn' s diaper. LeighAnn
