  • How often do you want to wash? I would have 24 so you could wash every 2 days. Do you know what kind you are interested in? If you didn't know, there away way more options than pre-folds and plastic panties! I like pocket diapers for night time but I also like pre-folds with wrap style covers. you should check out the cloth diapering mommas group or cuties with cloth booties

  • I have checked out the "all in one" diapers from Bum Genius. They run like $20 a piece.....so you are talking about a $500 start up rate, which considering I spend about $13 a week on disposables is not terrible if they "grow" with the child.

  • I'm not a big fan of the BG aio's because they take forever to dry and are harder to get clean. I love our BG pocket diapers, our kawaii pockets, I also have some that are made by WAHMs. I also like the BG flip system. are you looking at www.cottonbabies.com ? I've ordered a lot from there. They have nice indian prefolds and the thirsties covers I love.
