Hi everyone,



If you're expecting, or you have recently welcomed a new life into the world, the question of whether to use disposable or cloth diapers has likely surfaced.
But from baby's viewpoint, comfort is the bottom line.... :)

Because he "needs money to take his new life". He said I won't get a dime until the state takes it from him.

Thank you for giving us the baby's input. I never thought to ask my son which was the most comfortable for him.

I did not CD my first two as NB, heck i just started with number two being 27 months old! hahah. But If this baby is anything like my son was as an EBF baby and poops after every feed, I know I will do good using prefolds and flats with covers. I have one AIO NB diaper now, and a few girly pockets that are OS size that will be used when she is well past the NB stage since I have small babies. I think my flats, prefolds, and XS thirsties covers will work great! :) I think with AIOs or pockets you would need ALOT to get through a day with a newborn and that means more money spent and more laundry needing to be done. just my opinion based on my VERY limited experience so far.

the only CDs that fit well on my newb were gdiapers & xs thirsties covers. oh & I also really liked an AIO NB Simplex. it was amazing haha.

Have you considered using flats and covers? With my son I had to start CD due to the fact that we literally had no money to buy another box of sposies. I found old baby blankets, bought flour sack towels at wal mart for about $1/piece, 4 pack of safety pins for $1 and a 4 pack of gerber plastic pants for $6. It was much cheaper than our usual $25/month for sposies. Just something to keep in mind for the future. Plus flats come clean much quicker and easier than other types of diapers.

I have pockets my issue was I didn't have any clean since I didn't realize I had so many broken.... I can't do flats and covers at my daycare but they're cool with pockets, AIO, etc like that.
