I know I have posted about this before but I am now willing to shop online so I shall ask again...



Where is a good place to get cloth diapers and what is a good brand. I have a 3 month old girl 14.2 lbs.

depends on what kind you are wanting....fitteds, pre folds, pockets AIO? the best way to go about it is to get a variety and try as many as you can. You can always resale the ones you don't like and this way you aren't stuck with a lot of one kind you don't like.

It really depends on what you want and how much you're willing to spend. What is your budget? Do you prefer overseas or local transactions. Do you prefer a company or a WAHM?

I like the idea of pockets or aio. I bought a bum genius pocket style but I dont like that I can only use it once and then have to wash it. I would like something that I can just lay an insert in and just have to wash the insert and be able to reuse the outside cover part but idk if such a thing is made. Right now I've bought 5 diapers of different styles, all pockets a I think and maybe 1 aio, off eBay so there being mailed from all over the world. I would love to just go pick one up at the stores but I did that yesterday and it was one diaper for $19.94 I don't really have a budget just looking to "hoby" in this but $19.94 is too expensive for one diaper imo

The only way to do that is to use prefolds/fitteds and then a cover. The prefold/fitted needs to be washed every time, but the cover can just be wiped down. Even if you lay an insert on top of a pocket, it will soak through.

I thought that what I was buying with pockets lol I like that the pockets are already folded so that I don't have to deal with a squirming baby and folding her diapers but no luck so far

Have you tried velcro? I personally like snaps, but some people like velcro more because it's closer to a sposie

I use AI2s because if baby doesn't wet through the soaker u can reuse the cover. I use a WAHM which is more expensive. But they're very nice. She made me a bunch of preemie dipes too. She's very sweet. Www.hyenacart.com/bearmonkeybottoms

There's tons of people who use them and love them. Inoerisnally don't but LOTS do. It's a good option If u want cheap dipes. I personally don't like pockets and I don't like to buy from china. FB has coops where they get them a little cheaper cause they buy in bulk and then disperse them out.

I was looking for any of the calypso design ones..I'll just wait for her to restock :-)



Are the ones from Alva baby cheaply made?
