-There are two local shops within an hour's drive that specialize mainly in cloth diapers, and DH and I plan to visit at least once or twice for free Cloth Diapering 101 "classes," and to consult with what sound like helpful staff. Google and such for the same near you-- I'm sure you'll find them somewhere in or near such a big city. I feel basically, theoretically good about EC'ing and CD'ing, but DH and I need some hands-on experience. (DH did help CD his brother in '70s Asia, but he was 5-7 years old! He could use a refresher.)
Ooh you just reminded me that we did this type of class (for cloth diapering and for babywearing), and it was very very helpful. It was so nice to just get your hands on all the different options and test them out. If you or your partner are at all unsure of things -- even if you just want to know about the options -- then see if you can find a class like this in your area!!
