Cloth diapers?

I was thinking about passing to cloth diapers, but I don't know so much about them. How do they work, how much do they cost, what's the best brand etc. Thank you for any advice :-)

  • join a cloth diapers group. They are about $15 for a dozen at babys r us. They seem to always be on sale for less. I use the prefolded ones. Bummis.com also has good advice. Their diaper covers are expensive but work like a charm!

  • I used them but i have two girls that are only a yr apart and it was hard with 2 babies in diapers. I noticed that pocket diapers were better then the all in one. pocket diapers u stuff with cloth diapers yourself. never use fabric sofener on your diapers or you will experience what i did, they will start leaking. use plain detergent and vinager on them. depending on where you live you can find cloth diaper outlits. i went to one in houston called young and restless. they also give out alot of info on there sight. and when you go in they show you a demo on a doll how to put the diaper on. they are cheap like between 7-15 a diaper depending on brand and print. which is cheap. you would need about 10 to start
