I recently found out I'm expecting again, and DF and I are really wanting to use cloth diapers, but... I'm clueless! I had a few (one or two) that I used when DS was a baby, but... it wasn't the best experience. I have been looking online, and I have some questions. I didn't see my exact questions already on the boards, so I hope I didn't overlook it. If I did, please direct me?
I want to go with mostly all-in-ones, but there are a lot of brands. I know the... efficiency can vary from child to child, so I want to get a variety, but I don't have a bunch of money to spend, so I was wondering where I can get fairly cheap, decent quality diapers, or if we're going to have to just spend ~$15/diaper?
I've found some on ebay that are NWT, but they are from China, but DF is worried about the customs charges. He said they could charge us a bunch of money, and we wouldn't know until they were delivered. Has anyone ordered from Chinese stores, or have any experience? Are we better just ordering state-side?
How many do I need for various stages? Newborn, infant, toddler, etc. What is a good stash size?
How do I wash them? Will I need to get special detergent, or what is the best way to launder them?
I probably sound really stupid, but between pregnancy brain, and not having any idea where to start, I'm kind of overwhelmed. TIA!
