DH and I really want to use cloth for environmental reasons, but we're feeling really intimidated by all the different options. This is our first baby, so we're pretty clueless about everything.
We don't have any friends or close family members with kids, either (we're the first in our circle to get pregnant), and I've never met anyone who used cloth, so we can't really ask people we know for advice. I've just been lurking around the Diapering forum and trying to learn from all the mamas there.
For those who already have a "stash", what kinds of things do you recommend for a newbie on a moderate budget? I'm leaning towards prefolds (I've been hearing good things about the ones from Green Mountain Diapers), and am still checking out the different kinds of covers. So many choices to make!
