I'm still learning, but they are cloth diaper references. YIKES! There is so much going on in the cloth diaper world and I have so much to learn. I just purchased baby girl’s first 6 diapers on sale yesterday and I’m so excited! They are BumGenius 4.0’s. They are OS, meaning one size fits all and they come with 2 inserts, one for a newborn and one for a bigger baby.
I chose the velcro on this go around. I’ve heard the pros of velcro vs snaps is that you can adjust the fit a little better/snugger and they are a bit easier to close when baby is squirmy. The cons, though, are that baby can learn how to undo the velcro and that velcro wears out faster than snaps. So, maybe my next batch will be snaps. I also think I might try some AIO’s, meaning all-in-ones, i.e. they don’t have inserts that you take out or stuff in, you just have one full piece of cloth diaper, period. A great friend gave me some advice that I should try different kinds until I know which ones work best for me, Jeff and baby girl. I think I’ll try to get plain, inexpensive prefolds, which are probably very similar to what cloth diapers were in the “olden days” for baby girl when she is a newborn, and with those some extra small diaper covers to go over the prefolds. There are also a gazillion different brands to choose from. Whoa, right? I know. It’s overwhelming and exciting! I probably won’t do any in depth posts on diapering, I'm just excited about trying it! I’ll try to keep you posted on what I get and what works best for us. Stay tuned in 5+ months for that info!
