Thankfully, they resold at nearly the same amount I paid for them. Anyway, don't buy a huge amount of any one thing or you may regret it. For a newborn though, either fitteds or prefolds or a mix of the two should suffice to get you started.
I am wondering how exactly I will do this. if I buy a bunch of newborn size for example, from GMD, then plan on washing a couple just to see how they work, and have the rest of them ready to be washed assuming I will know if I like them after just a couple times of using? and maybe supplement with disposables & a couple prefold I have while deciding? I have a feeling I'm not gonna want to do all that washing again the first week, but at least I would have the ability to return them if they didn't works out from the return policy if I wait to buy them, right? or is there another way? I want to avoid reselling, used ads are driving me mad!
I know this is a cloth diapering thread but if I am going 2 need the disposables, any recommendations of what brand is most cloth like, anybody else using them for short time? I think you're having a couple packs around might be good I want to check on prices. if for some reason they work out and they are economical I may end up deciding to return my newborn diapers and investing in the cloth small size. That is if i get fitteds, if i got prefolds i think i would keep for doublers , yes? Does that sound right? love keeping all my options open but the same time drives me crazy to not commit to anything, i wanna be ready for anything, but sometimes the effort doesnt feels exhausting.
And, anybody want to comment on the breathability of a good disposable vs a cloth with a pul cover?
I am loving the wipes solution/pail tips too. Thanks everyone
, i couldnt do it without you all.
