I teach cloth diapering seminars at local natural parenting stores and I created a comprehensive video to give to my friends and family who were considering cloth diapering. Upon request, I have uploaded it (in seven parts) to youtube. Now that it's up, I thought I'd share!

http://www.youtube.com/user/JaimeeGleisner#g/a

It includes:
Pros and cons of all the major diapering systems
How to use the diapers including folding techniques for prefolds
Recommended quantities, building your diapering stash
Diapering accessories
Washing instructions
Basic reasons to cloth diaper

If you find it helpful, please leave comments and pass it on to your friends!

Thanks!
Jaimee

Holy Moly, mama! I'm only through the first three, but FANTASTIC JOB! I will certainly be passing this on. I could have used this in my early days of diapering!

Wow, thank you so much for doing this!
I knew I wanted to cloth diaper, but all the different varieties were starting to scare me. Now I see it won't be completely impossible.

Everyone should see this.

btw, I'm from Towson! I miss it! I shouldn't be surprised that such a great presentation would come from there.

LOL! Actually this was born of Austin, TX if you can believe it. But, there is a large cloth diapering community here, too!
