So some of you may have seen the thread I made about a week and a half ago about me making my first AB/DL related order and with that, getting my first AB/DL related items(other than the pacifier that I already had). Welp, I was really nervous(nervous enough to where I've waited til now to attempt to buy anything AB/DL related) about making the order, but I did it. My order included 1 Gerber First Essential 5oz. bottle and a pack of 6 silicoln nipples for that, a 2 pack of Nuk 3s(which I recieved in my desired, gender correct colors; Orange & Yellow and Blue & Green), 1 12 pack of Medium Tranquility ATNs, and a box of gallon sized ziploc bags to dispose of the 'evidence'. All the items I ordered were eligable for Amazon Super-saver shipping, which meant that not only did I get FREE shipping, but the items were shipped directly from Amazon with the return address being, you guessed it, Amazon.(just a side not: I used an alternate Amazon account to make this purchase because orders DO stay in your order history permanently)
My bottle and the nipples I ordered for it, shipped first, separate from the rest of the order(but still with free shipping, and still part of the same order). I got those Friday. I modified one of the replacement nipples by cutting an X into it and I found my desired flow-rate. The bottle size may seem pretty small, certainly doesn't look large, but drinking from a bottle takes time(at least for me) so I think its the perfect size.
Just today, my other shipment came in, with everything else in my order! I got home after my last class(in which I spent most of the class thinking of the package whose shipping status I'd been watching anxiously for the past week) to find a package laying on my doorstep. Apparently my younger brother, mother, and father were all out, making my arrival time perfect. I brought the box to my room and unpacked its contents. I stashed my diapers and the Ziploc bags in my preconceived hiding spot(as I didn't have enough time to get a good first experience before my next family member stumbled in) and I washed my new pacifiers. After picking which to use first(I picked the orange one) and popping it in my mouth, I stashed the other Nuk and my old one, filled my bottle with some milk, and lied down. I drank my milk laying down and after I finished the bottle, I put my new pacifier in my mouth and took a nap.
I'm very happy I finally did this, and receiving my packages went off without a hitch. I should be able to have enough time to thoroughly test out my first diaper either tomorrow or Friday(days I don't have classes). I'm extremely excited.
