So, my dh and I are slowly starting to compile a list of things we think we need for this little baby. I know it's early, but we are planners on a tight budget so it seems prudent to have an idea of what we want to start collecting. Now that I'm past 13 weeks I feel slightly more comfortable doing this. Anyway, last night we were sifting through the wide world of cloth diapers and ended up feeling overwhelmed and at all loss of what to do. My mom is insisting on getting us a diaper service for the first three months (and of course I'm accepting) so really we won't need diapers until 3 months and beyond. But, my oh my, there are so many choices! And, it seems as though we could spend anywhere from $300 dollars to $2000! Yikes! We know we want to keep polyester out of the inside of the diaper and away from baby's skin, but other than that we're not sure. Pre-fold, fitted, all in one. It's enough to make my head spin.
So... I was wondering if any of you cloth diapering mamas would like to give your two cents on the matter? What's your favorite diaper system? Are fitted diapers really worth the extra money? And, how many diapers do I need anyway?
