Here are my initial thoughts about cloth diapering (I am a newbie to this endeavor). I'd love any feedback!
- I think I am going to order supplies from Green Mountain Diapers, combined with sewing and possibly knitting some of my own.
- I could buy a couple of newborn sized GMD prefolds (https://www.greenmountaindiapers.com/diapers.htm#DSQ%20Prefold%20Diapers) and then copy the size/thickness as I sew additional diapers with materials in my stash. Since I sew, I can't see the point of spending much money on prefolds. Or are the GMD prefolds better in some way than what I could make myself?
- I also want to get some GMD "Workhorse" prefitted diapers with doublers built in (https://www.greenmountaindiapers.com/diapers.htm#workhorse). Are these way easier to use than the prefolds? The workhorse diapers have snap closure option, or no-closure pinnable or snappi option. What are pros and cons of snaps/no snaps? Has anyone used the snappi closures and did you like them?
- Some people say they aren't going to bother cloth diapering in newborn stage, but rather ask for disposibles as shower gifts then start cloth diapering when the baby is a little older. What do you think of that approach?
