I've been curious about trying the gDiapers. But, I have a few questions.
1. How many outer linings do you use per baby?
2. When going out, is it a problem to use the diapers (changing the dirty diapers, flushing them, etc...)
3. If you LO is a soaker at night, can the gDiapers hold a large amount of pee/poopy?
4. Do you miss using the disposables?

definnitely check out the CD board. diaperswappers is also great as the PP said. we do cloth diaper (started CDing noah when he was about 9 months old) and plan to do so with the twins, but i have never used gdiapers. i exclusively use fuzzi bunz with noah and for the twins will start out with prefolds/fitteds with covers (a little more cost effective for the NB stage) and then transition to fuzzi bunz when they are big enough to fit well in them.
i LOVE cloth diapering and do not miss disposables AT ALL. i also CD when we go out. just change the diaper like normal, but have a separate bag to put the used diaper in and it just comes home with us.
hope that helps!
PS the upfront cost will seem like a lot but if you figure out how much you would spend on sposies, CD will definitely be more cost effective, even if you figure in the increase in water and electricity for washing and drying (or you can line dry). the increase was so small for us, that CDing was still way more cost effective. especially with twins. i figured out i could easily spend about $4500 diapering twins from NB to 3 years of age.
PPS if you aren't opposed to it, you can get some gently used CDs from diaperswappers and from the CD board here as well (although diaperswappers you will have a lot more choices). you could try a few different kinds that way and see what you like and that way if you decide to CD full or even part time, you can buy used and save money!
