Quoting zombie.:" Okay so I have new diapers in, with MF inserts, they're pocket diapers how do I wash them? I have dawn ... [snip!] ... how much tide do you use? (tide is what i decided to use after talking to a lot of people, its the powder..) 1 tablespoon?"


Neither of either. You don't need dawn unless you are stripping, and I would only use it to strip for greasy issues, like creams.

I want to clean clean clean, but I can't because I am on strict bedrest. But it's driving me insane because my house is disgusting. We are moving so I can't decorate anyway. And I don't have baby showers, or family who buy baby stuff, or even friends who do, so baby stuff buying is only done by us lol. My mom does buy clothing though. However, I have requested her not to, I do not need a bunch of clothing, especially in newborn sizes or 0-3 months when they are still itty. My mom always goes crazy clothes buying lol

Same here, I want my son to be wearing the cute diapers, but instead he is in those plain white plastic pants. :( Oh well, gotta start somewhere.

ok so after using cloth full time since about noon yesterday, I now realize how gross disposables are! With cloth I HAVE to change my son every 1-2hrs, I had NO IDEA he peed so often!! I feel horrible saying this, but with the disposable I could easily go 4hrs without changing him because it just didn't seem wet! a Full day from about 8am-10pm, he would get 4-6 changes, usually 4. Now he gets 6-8 easily. Poop changes are a few extra steps, but really cloth is pretty easy! I managed to do it while at gma's house for a family bbq today and it was super easy. I hope this excitement doesn't wane after a couple of months! Cuz really, trying to plop very soft smooshy STINKY:shock: poop into the toilet and then needing to rinse the flat out before putting it in my makeshift wetbag is pretty gross. But at this point, I really hate the idea of putting him back in a disposable for any reason. I almost did it for bedtime last night, and a couple times today while at gma's but I never could get myself to do it.
But from what I have read, seen, and heard for most moms, the love of cloth diapering only INCREASES over time, so I hope that is the case for me after I can get some pockets or at least fitteds.

Lol. It's true. And I went backwards. I started with pockets and now almost always use flats. lol. And I'm telling you if you get a yard of micro fleece and cut it up the poop comes off SO easy! And I have a spatula (like a frosting one that is plastic that I got for .99 at the store) for special occasions when I have to scrape. :)

We are nearly out of pull-ups so we're saving them for daycare. T is in cloth at home and loving it. 24 work days left until I hardcore potty train him.

I will have to look into that, all of mine are 100% cotton. but the thing about the spatula,....wouldn't the fold start to fall apart as you scrape, making poop parts everywhere? I use the origami and kite folds mainly and when I am trying to shake poop off, the fold starts coming apart.

Potty Train? What's that? lol. Kidding... I'm just nowhere near there... Although during nakey time tonight my son peed and that's the first time he got to see it come out. He thought it was hilarious. Then he put his hands in it and stepped in it... :/

Nope because I scrape it off the fleece! :) That's why I love it and it's SOO worth it. I cut it up in strips that are like 5 or 6 inches by however long the rise is and I just have to get the poop off the fleece!

Yes! Only the cheap way. lol. They sell really nice liners, I just cut my own. lol. And fleece doesn't fray or anything so it doesn't need to be sewn. Just make sure it's micro fleece. It also keeps baby's skin dry too! So double awesome!

Yep! And, in the very beginning, had it not been for the fact I was pregnant, I wouldn't have been ale to do any more than what you are. I started off with spending $25 a week on diapers to prepare for my son. This time I only need newborn diapers, so every other week I spend $50.
