Oh and I wash my cloth (the whole 2 cycles I got to use it) with the diapers too. I just rinse them off in the sink (cold water) and toss them in the diaper pail.

I do know people who have used infant or preemie prefolds for the pp flow. Personally I'd be concerned with shifting
Ahh, the shifting. I hadn't thought of that. Thanks for the washing tips.

I will only wear cloth in the house (so shifting won't be such an issue), I will buy some natural pads for when I go out.

I haven't had a problem with shifting when it comes to normal activities. For exercising I use tampons, but since I won't be exercising during the first few weeks it doesn't matter! After that I have some smaller cloth pads with snaps to keep them in place so I can start walking for exercise again. Then at 6 weeks I'll start postpartum aerobics at the Y.
I was nervous about shifting the first time I used "lay-in" cloth pads, like going grocery shopping and such, but really they never moved a whole lot on me.

yeah the few times that I've used lay-in pads they didn't shift much but they were fleece backed so I'm sure that helped. But they liked to fall in the toilet :

Okay, I am an always devotee, that is so wierd that some women get rashes!? I would suggest an "ultrathin" pad, they absorb just as much as those big clunky pads and are much more comfortable.

Would an ultrathin seriously do the job on day 1 or 2 pp?

An Always pad might work even as an ultrathin (They have ultrathin overnights) b/c they have the super-absorbent gel.... I "always" get horrible rashes (I think from the gel)... guess who's not getting traditional sposie diapers?

I use Stayfree or Kotex with no problem... Still have to pick some big'uns, though.
