Who's planning to cloth diaper or thinking about it? Have you done it before?





Myself, I've CD'd 50% of the time with all three kids. I know that sounds weird but I get lazy or too busy to deal sometimes. As with every pregnancy this time I want to go "all out" 95% of the time with outings being an exception and we rarely go anywhere so that's not a lot of the time. We have to get some new things for our stash so I'm getting antsy to start online shopping. Also, I thought about making a cloth diaper registry since we're good on all other things 'baby'.



Just wondering who else is with me on this!

I will be cloth diapering I am new so I am still trying to figure out things. I plan to use what ever stash I get from friends & fam while the twins are newborn then go to one size...not sure what kinds yet, that is the hard decision!

. I need to know where is the best place to buy at the cheapest price. So if anyone has any suggestions fire away

I already have a full stash of prefolds in nb and small but will be getting a few new boyish covers I am thinking to try the Capri size 1s. I saved almost everything from M so I really don't need much. We loved the prefolds and were masters of the jellyroll and snappi, never had a poop leak despite many massive lakes o'poo!! Gotta love the containment of cloth, esp a 2-part system with separate cover. Really holds it allllll in.

I am debating getting some tiny AIOs for grandma... eventually I will probably cave and get a few They might get used overnight too. I am such a CD junkie

For mainstream shopping, Nicki's Diapers usually has good prices and cheap options, esp their Imagine line. Then of course there is ebay and FSOT and china cheapies. Occasionally people find screaming deals on Craigslist or local consignment stores or yard sales, too! Or hand me downs!

We are planning to. We are hoping to try all different kinds and try and figure out what works best for us. I have a bumgenius 4.0 all in one and a bumkins. The bumgenius I just really wanted to buy at buy buy baby but the bumkins we found for $9 at the NEX on base. I want to also try some prefolds and covers. We're really hoping to be able to save money with this. Two in disposable diapers just seems like SOOO much money.

All of my kids have been cloth diapered at least some of the time, and four of them were in cloth full time. If I am able to quit working, or at least drop to part-time, when Baby is born we will CD; otherwise we'll have to do disposables because nobody else in the family is willing or able to learn how to handle the few extra steps required.

I plan to! I have been obsessed with reading about it and watching YouTube videos. I think I will get newborn fitted with covers for the first few months the. Try some types after that (one size). That's what I am thinking at the moment. I also want to do cloth wipes. I am so excited to start a stash!!! I have a friend who cd so I have been hounding her for advice!!

I'm on the train but DH isn't sold yet. My local store recommended FuzziBunz- anyone have experience? I'd like to order a starter set with a few different brands.

This site is good too:

For newborns I love kissaluvs size 0 with covers, as well as lil joeys, and fuzzibunz xsmall. For OS I love my bum genius 4.0. I have a few more expensive dipes but I won those. Hehe. Pay attention to seconds sales, those usually have slight cosmetic flaws that does not effect the function of the diaper. I also by used off b/s/t or even eBay. But with eBay be careful, search specific brands not just cloth diapers. I know a lot of people who love their ebay cheapies, or other cheapier brands, we however have not had great success. It's all about personal preference as well as the shape/size of your baby.

They were great cause you could fold more padding in different areas for boys or girls with different patterns! More thickness out front for boys more underneath for girls!!

Also the best cleaning cloths you will ever use!!! * note not to be reused then on children LOL

I looked into it, but I wasn't willing to risk the start up cost if I wasn't going to stick to it and I was hoping to go to work after a few months and I know daycare wont do it.

I do think a lot of them are really cute though.
