Ok cloth diapering mamas...someone give me a crash course. I need to know pros, cons, diaper types, what's the best to use, how you use them, how you clean them, etc. I know nothing about them, but we're thinking of trying them because when baby bean is born, we'll have 2 in diapers and the cost of that scares the crap out of me. I am a total moron when it comes to this topic. Help please!

 The cloth diaper people I knew had diaper service. It wasn't cheap.

Pros: better for baby's skin, less chemicals, better for environment, cuter, more comfortable for baby, can be much more affordable

Cons: a little more work (about 2 extra loads of landry per week), can sometimes be harder to find a system that works well for your baby

There are quite a few different diapering systems.  I've tried most everything at this point and my fav is to use all natural materials by fitted diapers with wool covers/pants/etc.  Pocket diapers or shells are probably the easiest.  Prefolds are the cheapest.  Most people don't use a diapering service but some areas do offer a service.  Services are usually for prefolds only.
