I guess I really dont know what the difference is between a fitted, prefold versus what I think Im getting. I dont want to spam the page, but a friend ordered these for her daughter, and I was thinking of trying them.

Oh those are pocket diapers mama :)



Stay dry against bubs skin, waterproof (they have PUL in them) and you stuff the insert into the pocket and remove it to wash.



My only advice.. if you want to go the pocket diaper route, get them from here http://www.alvababy.com



Free shipping, cheap diapers & they post express if you order 20 or more.



Me and a few other mamas on here love them.. their fit is great and if you have any issues with the diapers they're quick to fix the problem.

Yeah mine was 6 lb 7 oz. got down to 5 lb 12 oz and last we'd was up to 6 lb 8 oz. they fit her perfect now. She is on the second to biggest waist snap and the smallest leg snap (sometimes I leave it undone).

Thank you so much for the help. I'm going to look into them right now, as the Ebay ad person is on vacation.
Im glad you ladies are here...I feel like I'm speaking a different language trying to start this.




Does anyone make their own inserts?

Haha i know so teeny tiny! :)



Im the same, i wash daily when i CD because i never have enough to leave it 2 days.



Now that im going to have 2 in cloth i've got more diapers ordered, but will still have to wash daily.



Oh well, at least they dont sit around :lol:



Hopefully i'll build my stash up enough so i can go 2 days max and have extras incase of upset tummys.

I recommend watching this youtuber.... she has a really comprehensive list of cloth diaper vlogs that explain the basics as well as some specific questions. Hope it helps!

I'm sure this has been asked before but does anyone use Mama Cloth? I've been looking into it and wondered if anyone had recommendations. I've heard good things about Domino Pads.

GAH!!! So effing frustrating. Microfiber will ALWAYS bead moisture without compression. Always. You cannot properly test the absorbency of it without compression. Sorry guys, had to vent here didn't wanna stir shit in a group LOL.
