I voted birth with first child, but that's not entirely true.
I started with cloth right from the start with my first child and I failed miserably
I used a diaper service and cheap wraps. I didn't know there was anything else out there...and almost 9 years ago, I don't think there was much. I had no support, there weren't amazing places like this when Conrad was small, and if there were, I didn't know about them. So, I went to sposies. With my second child, I didn't even try to do cloth. When I got pregnant with dd, I was determined to succeed! I searched the internet, because by this time I was a confirmed internet junkie and found Terri's FMBG site. I emailed her some questions, she responded and I knew fitteds were the way to go for me (still snake bit by that first hideous experience).
I started with some homemade poopockets, FMBG covers and a few small FMBG diapers when dd was first born
Then enter Fuz, then wool addiction and the rest is history
Now, I'm finally going to try cpf again
and I know I can do it this time, cause you mamas are going to hold my hand, talk me though it and listen to my snappi woes.
