I like huggies the most as far as disposables go. Luvs work just as well (sometimes better for us) and are cheaper though. 

This is my 3rd baby (10 weeks old monday) and I just started cloth diapering today. It went well. It is different though, something to get use to. It was only day and and it felt great to not be putting chemical filled disposables on her little bottom and to not be throwing $.25 per diaper change in the garbage too :)

Cloth :) I already CD my daughter, so it'll be easy to just start doing it from the beginning with this baby.

I tried liners once when we started using cloth and then once more when we introduced solids. Both times the diapers leaked pee and the poop spread around the liner. I don't know how it happened, but dh said no more liners because I was complaining about it for so long. I don't mind the expense or chemicals for a week long stretch of diapers for a nb and an almost two year old. I actually did think about getting two packs of gerber flats or prefolds to last the first day or so, but I'll probably just end up buying disposables just to avoid hanging up the diapers. I have low blood pressure issues, so less work postpartum is best for me.

One of my friends (a member of CM) gave me a really good tip! She cuts up squares of fabric to place inside the cloth diapers in the hospital so while baby is passing the meconium, you just toss those squares of fabric straight into the trash. :)

Quoting polkaspots:

Cloth after the first few days. Meconium stains and is really sticky. I will not be standing at my sink hand washing poopy diapers ten times a day right after giving birth. The nb and the one year old will both be wearing disposables for a few days because I won't be washing diapers for a week.

I understand. I have c-sections and a husband who returns to work the day after we are home from the hospital.  With my last c-section, it took a while for my blood pressure to go up.  It was like 90/40 and I was monitored a lot more closely this time because of that. Just wanted to throw out that idea in case it was something you wanted to do to help prevent meconium all over your diapers. :)

I like the pamper swaddlers for new babies. Right now my 2 year old wears huggies or pampers, whatever's on sale. We tried luvs on him, and him butt cheeks broke out in a bug rash - which is really sad since he only wears them at night. I've thought about cloth diapering, but not sure if its for me or not.

Thanks, it is a good idea, it just won't work for me since I'll have two other small children.

I finally have my toddler in cloth full time. baby alternates. She mainly still uses sposies, but that's because i don't have enough cloth for 2 kids.
We switched in January and had 1 bag of diaper trash after about 3 weeks, since baby was born at the beginning of April its been a bag a week. Gross!

Me too :) How far apart are your kids? I have one that turned 4 in February, 2 earlier this month, and a 3 month old.

The oldest turned 3 at the end of December, the baby turned one in February and the next one will be here around December. My old gyno retired and I haven't found someone to go to for prenatal care yet.
How do you do it?? My kids will be roughly the same age and this baby wasn't exactly tried for and I'm quite scared of being outnumbered.
