I just want to introduce myself, my name is Sam. I am not a mom yet but really trying to be.

I really want to cloth diaper at least my first baby to see if I like it.
What tips and such can you guys give to help me figure this out. Is it easier to make them or buy them? I know there is several styles, which do you think works the best?

Any help is appreciated.

First, read every single link on this page (the stickies I mean). Look over on Diaperswappers for links on various washing, styles, and tutorials.

Then, buy one or two of multiple kinds of diapers. Don't stock up heavily on someone else's suggestion. A couple AIOs, a couple pockets of different brands, some prefolds, some covers, a hybrid or two, a couple fitteds and wait til your baby is here to determine which you love. There are plenty of people who love one brand...and just as many who despise it. It's hard to make suggestions to someone because we all are so different and so are the shapes/needs of our kids.

Don't be afraid of the washing routines. Those are always made out to be super-complicated. But most folks in here find the easier we make it (rinse, heavy wash with "normal" powder soap, another cycle of was with no detergent), the more effective it is. I know those with front-loaders have a few more obstacles, but really, the washing is the part that freaks most people out the most and really needs to be the simplest part.

I think that is all for now. Reading a lot, looking at YouTube videos, and scouting for reviews are good ways to get you used to the lingo, the different ins and outs of cloth diapering, and will make you more confident that you can do it with relative ease.

Good luck getting preggo!

Research research research! I was pregnant with DS when I decided I wanted to cloth diaper so I spent a lot of time researching everything. Like she said above you have to figure out which you like best.
