I'm expecting my second son in the next month and have decided to abandon the disposables this time around and use cloth diapers. First of all I live abroad, so not all of the US brands are available here. But thanks to the wonders of the internet, my local shop, etc. special ordering is always an option. That being said, I've just received my sample pack, which includes an all-in-one pocket diaper and a snap in (?) with a waterproof cover. I'll try out both, see what type I prefer and make a bigger purchase then. So...all that being said, a few questions:
1.) What are some of the best brands you've come across? Please note: I will not be making any of my own. I wish I was in that way inclined, but I'm just not.
2.) Did you start out with a full supply or add to it over time?
3.) How many do you recommend for starting out? I've read from 20 to 36.
4.) How many diaper changes did/do you average with a newborn?
Anyway, many more questions to come I'm sure! I imagine it will all be trial and error, but just trying to get a gauge on what to expect.
