Okay, so DH & I are thinking about CDing at home (daycare won't do CD) and I am sooooo lost lol!! I thought about gDiapers but for every 1 good review I've read, I have read 10 bad ones. I think I'd want use pocket diapers but again am so lost on what's the best diaper, what's the easiest and all of that. Plus I have no idea haow much of anything I should get.
So any help on just the basic's of CDing??
And how much of everything (she'll be in Daycare about 36-40 hrs a week)??
ANY advice would be lovely!! I should add that I'd like to go a somewhat inexpensive route too.
I did check out the CD forum on JM, and it was pretty helpful but I'm still lost lol.
thank you jaidynsmum for my siggie!

I tried just about everything with my second son and hated microfiber (it retained smell no matter what I did) - usually pocket diapers have microfiber inserts.
This time I stayed super cheap and we're going to use prefolds and one-size covers. I waited for sales and bought a bunch of flip diaper covers and gro-via diaper covers. The newborn prefolds can later be used as doublers once we're using the infant sized prefolds.
It's really trial & error when you start. I would get a few different of the cheaper options and if it doesn't work for you try something more expensive.

Here is a great site that has great info on cloth! Green Mountain Diapers: First time mom Green Mountain Diapers
They not only sell diapers but they also tell you a bit about each diaper, and best of all have pictures of babies in each of them to give you a better idea of how the look and fit!
I've cd 2 of my kids. Here is what I'll be using this time
After I get done w/ the nb stage I plan on using FuzziBunz perfect fit diapers, and BumGenius OS (onsized.. I already have 15 of these from DS#2).
I like pocket diapers because you can stuff them with as little or as much protection as you think you'll need.
I pretty much buy all my diapers on diaperswappers.com They are used but as long as they don't have stains.. WHO CARES, there gonna get pooped in anyways I've never paid more than $10 for a dipe!
