I was thinking about what I have learned about CDing and what I wish I could go back and tell myself.
1. In your California hard water and HE FLer, bleach and the sanitize cycle will be your friend. This is fine for almost all diapers but avoid bamboo velour and bamboo terry unless you are okay with them becoming very dense and basically sherpa over time.
2. M grows REALLY FAST and big and any diaper with versatility in the sizing will be better for you. Flats, prefolds, prefitteds and pinnable OS fitteds (once you learn to pin) will work the best and the longest.
3. It is tough to beat a trifolded prefold in a nice aplix cover like a Flip for convenience diapering. Any AIO with tongue style soaker or snaps will still be "too hard" for grandma and she will just insist on using sposies anyway, so don't bother catering to her! (Maybe aplix pockets would have been a better choice for her... I don't know)
Overall I have a great stash put away for #2 and am excited to use it again... but I do think I wasted a lot of time and money on fancy looking stuff that ended up not working as well for me as the old fashioned basics! It was fun though
