Expecting a baby in 8 weeks. We have a few Charlie Banana pocket diapers, but we plan on mostly using prefolds and wool covers. I have a few questions:
1. We do not have a washer/dryer in our apartment. We usually do laundry one a week at my FIL's home. We are planning to handwash the diapers in our bathtub and hang dry. We do not want to use bleach or harsh chemicals. My MIL is worried that the diapers won't be sanitary if we handwash them. Is this true? Do you have any suggestions for keeping diapers sanitary?
2. We are planning to use wool diaper covers. Any suggestions on a good brand? Thinking of using GroVia. Cheapest I've seen and good reviews.
3. How many infant prefolds should we start out with? We are expecting a large baby (possibly up to 9 lbs.). Should we stock up on infant size diapers or wait and see?
