So when I have a dirty diaper, do you guys spray it before you put it in the dirty bin? Or soak it?



Also- I'm confused if I get a water proof diaper, and put soakers inside of it, I can reuse the diaper, and keep changing out the soaker, right?

How would wash cycles differ with a front loading washer? I have no options on mine for programming cycles and the normal wash cycles take forever. I'd be washing diapers for hours and hours... :?



What about doing a hand pre-rinse to save time?

Ok, so this is my first baby. So, I hope I don't sound too stupid asking this but anyways....



How often do you need to change your cloth diaper? Can they pee in it, and you let it go until they pee again? Or if they peed heavily, you change the diaper? I know if they poop that would qualify for a new diaper. But how soiled should I let the diaper go?



Also- what if I changed the soaker pad, and there is a little bit of pee or something on the side of the diaper that the cloth caught. Is it ok to keep that diaper, and put a new soaker pad in?
