Oh and some cover manufacturers are switching from PUL to TPU (thermoplastic polyurethane) because it seems to be more environmentally friendly. So if you get a diaper that is TPU (some Alvas, Rumparooz, Grovia) that's cool too. They are said to break down sooner but you should be able to use them to potty training, even through multiple children.

Some covers are nylon (bummis whisper wraps, gdiapers).They shouldn't be washed on hot & can be less repellent than PUL/TPU. They are more breathable though.

Join cuties with cloth booties for more info.  We love Fuzzi Bunz.  First baby, I washed with All Free and Clear, but for this baby I bought Mountain Green, which I haven't used yet.  Never used a sprayer.  Breastfeeding poop doesn't have to be washed off beforehand, and once they eat solids the poop gets more solid, so I just knocked it off into the toilet or used toilet paper to push it off, if needed.  Check out diaperpin.com for reviews on practically every type of cloth diaper made, as well as reviews of online shops that sell them.  Start off with a variety of big name brand cloth diapers before experimenting with others.  If you buy diapers that don't work well, you wont be able to stick with it.  The biggest names that are most reliable tend to be Fuzzi Bunz, Bum Genius, Thirsties, ProRaps, Bummis.

My dh jiggy rigged our toilet with a kitchen sprayer, but I've heard the Bumgenius kits are great.  As far as Organic diapers I'm no real help there.  I do know of bamboo diapers since I bought a few of these Kawaii Minky. They work wonderfully.  Bumgenius has a organic AIO that works pretty good, the down side is that it has to air dry and they take forever!  Otherwise you might be doing prefolds with wool or fleece covers.

I recommend that you buy a couple of each type, and a couple different brands used.  Then, once you've been able to try them, you can buy what you like new.  What works for 1 baby/family doesn't work for others.  Prefolds are the cheapest route for the newborn stage, before you can fit into the one size diapers of other types.
