Congrats on baby number 3!! My husband and i have one for now, but
would love to have 3 when all is said and done!!
We have used cloth diapers for Mason and we love them. I ordered them
off cottonbabies.com. And i used diaperpin.com to learn how to fold
and care for the diapers. The best thing for our money was the
Chinese pre-folds and generic plastic diaper covers (we got 3 covers
for each size). we bought 40 small diapers (we used them until Mason
was 4 months old) and 50 large diapers (MAson will be in these until
we potty train him). We do laundry every 3 days having 50 diapers. I
do use disposable diapers when we go out and he wears them overnight,
it just makes it so much easier on us!! I pay VERY close attention to
our budget, and i know for a fact that we only spend $20 at the most
on disposables every month (that’s on a busy month when we go out a lot!!)
as far as cleaning them I use our regular laundry detergent and you
don’t use fabric softener, instead you use white vinegar (very
cheap!!). That helps keep the pee smell away. You can also put
baking soda on the diapers when they are in the pail to keep the smell
down (I buy mine at the 99 cent store, 2 for $1!!)
I hope that helps you. feel free to e-mail me at Kaewilli@cox.net if
you have any specific questions. just put “cloth diapers” in the
subject so i don’t accidently delete it thinking it’s junk mail :).
