So...after much consideration I am thinking about joining the world of Cuties with Cloth Booties.
We had looked into it before when I was pregnant with Riley. At the time I had just learned about G Diapers. I really liked the idea of the G Diapers, but when we looked at the price of the inserts versus the price of disposable diapers it was more expensive to buy the inserts. I recently did the math again when I saw that Babies R Us now carries G Diapers. For a 40 pack of the small inserts it comes out to .36 per insert. For a box of 84 Newborn diapers....or for a pack of 60 newborn diapers it comes out to .30 per diaper. This is before you add in the $27 for 2 G diaper covers.
I am totally clueless when it comes to cloth, so I have a LOT of research laying ahead of me. This is where you all come in! I know a lot of you are cloth diapering momma's. Can you help me to join the world of Cuties with Cloth Booties? Do you have any websites that will tell me the difference between prefolds and pocket diapers? (are they different? or is that the same kind just with a different name? LOL) I want something that's easy to read and to understand that won't confuse me more then I already am. I know there is the bum genius brand, but I don't know anything about them. What about my daughter's weight? Will that effect whether or not we can even use cloth diapers yet? She's not quite 8lbs yet. I have so many questions, and I know that if I go to my good friend Google that I'm going to have a lot of links to wade my way through. Some helpful, some a complete waste of my time. So I am coming to you all to see if anyone has any great websites I can visit before I turn to Google.
I promise to update once I figure out what we decide to do!!
