What would you like to know Patchfire?
For first timers I usually recommend starting out with CPF's (prefolds) and Bummis covers. This is the most economical way. I plan to do a variety of prefolds fitteds and wool soakers/covers. But I have been thru 2 CD babes and know what I like, mostly. lol
If you want to go the fitted route the ones most recommended for newborns are
Kindheartedwoman from www.granolathreads.com
(great customer service there)
Kissaluvs size 0 which you can get just about anywhere but www.diaperbabies.com

Elbees at elbeebaby.com

I love her sherpa fitteds and her CS is excellent.www.nessasnappies.com
are 2 others I plan to buy fitteds from but i will be using their sm & med not newborns.
Prefolds can be bought just about anywhere but you want to make sure you are getting TRUE cpfs from green earth textiles and NOT babies textiles, those are not as durable. Indian prefolds also seem to be pretty popular but more expensive.
Bummis covers can be bought just about anywhere. I have a friend who makes the nanas woolies knitting me soakers and I plan to make my own wool jersey covers. I also plan to have a cushie tushie wool soaker (have a custom order in right now) and maybe someday a KSS or KIYP and a MM but those are just wants and not really needs.
I could really talk your ear off about CD lol
