Hopefully more people will reply or else we're just gonna do trial and error. Thanks for your help, though! I appreciate it. :)

Anyone have a sprayer? Did you buy a diaper one or make your own? I'm hoping to get one in this time around.

I use a peri bottle. It works so far so good for ebf poop. I'm sure once he starts eating solids I may just buy one. I found some cheap ones on Amazon.

I was going to get a sprayer but I tried a cheap plastic frosting spatula instead. I love it.

I'm thinking I'll do flats and covers. I'm liking flats with my son so far... But if I can get my hands on some good prefolds I'll do those too.:)

I have an OsoCozy (cosy? I forget) sprayer that I got on clearance for like $30 with free shipping. It works great, but I don't have to use it that often with DD's diapers as they tend to be ploppable. I'm sure I will be super thankful for it once baby boy is here and on solids!

They scared me for like a day. Then I practiced folding them for a few weeks... Lo.. Then I tried them and I love them. I feel like they come so clean when I wash them. :)

Bamboo is definitely more absorbent, and more trim. Bamboo and hemp are supposed to be similar in absorbency, but I don't like hemp. I prefer bamboo, then cotton.

Bamboo is supposed to be better for sensitive skin, but some people are sensitive to it. Generally natural fibers are better for sensitive skin than synthetics.
