So I'm way early in thinking about this, but I'm toying with the idea of CDing. I work full time and so does my hubby. I'm thinking about the time I'll be spending laundering in between shifts. How much time do you spend laundering (for one baby)?
Also if anyone would offer recommendations of their favorite brand, I would appreciate it! :)

I spend like an hour and a half every 5 days. I'm a single mom working full time and cloth is just an extra load a week, not much extra work.

I do a load every 4 days. I love waterproof covers with prefold liners. AIO's seem easier but i think they're a pain in the wazoo. Greenline Diapers has a great system, but the waterproof only lasts about 9 months :( I prefer covers made from PUL, it seems to be the only waterproof that lasts and lasts. I'm a lazy clothie, no soaking no rinsing no hand washing etc, just dump my bin in the washer, pre rinse and wash, hang covers to dry, the liners go in the dryer. It does take a little more time than disposables, but is totally worth the $$, plus, we have super sensitive skin and all the chemicals in disposables freak me out.

Every two days (2 hrs) is what works for me. SO does it right after lol. We've fallen in love with charlie banana diapers. We're also trying baby city. Haven't decided if we like them yet. Lol

Thanks so much for your responses! I'll have to read the reviews on these diapers.
I'm leaning towards CD because we want more kiddos after this one (like 1-2 more). I just think it would be more economically responsible.

It is way cheaper! I make diaper covers and use bum genius liners I wash my diapers every 2-3 days but I probably do t have as many as others.
