Here is my article with alllll the details about how I diapered my first baby:
I'm doing almost exactly the same with my second baby, but a few details are different:
She is wearing newborn size Cloth-Eez Workhorse fitted diapers with snaps, from Green Mountain Diapers. They are less expensive than most infant fitteds, but the quality is great. They have an attached soaker (sewn down on one end) so they absorb a lot but dry quickly. At 16 weeks she is about to outgrow these diapers and they don't hold all her pee overnight, so we are transitioning to one-size-fits-all fitteds; so far we are using them with a doubler as her nighttime diapers.
The reason I didn't buy one-size to start with is that they're so bulky on a tiny baby. Even now they are very thick at the hips and bunchy around the legs--but I know from past experience that they will fit much better in another month or so.
Our one-size fitted diapers are Mother-Ease, the regular unbleached fabric. They are awesome. The ones my son wore when he was 4-32 months old were sold to another family, whose kid wore them for a similar amount of time, and they told me only ONE wore out and they sold the rest to a third baby!
I tried a lot of different diaper covers on my son, and by far the best were Dappi pull-on nylon pants, so those are the only covers I bought for my daughter. They hold in the mess like nothing else!! They are very inexpensive, durable, easy to use, easy to wash, and seem comfortable for baby. They come in sizes, so you have to get new ones every six months or so as baby grows. I swap covers at every change at home, but when we're out I just keep putting the same one back on unless poop escapes the diaper and gets on the cover; then I put it in the wetbag and put on the spare cover that is always in the diaper bag.
I use cloth wipes that are flannel on one side, terry on the other. My friend made them for me in assorted print flannel. I love the cute prints and variety! I just moisten them with plain water.
I have 3 dozen diapers, 4 dozen wipes, 6 diaper covers, 2 big wetbags for lining the diaper pail (trash can with foot pedal), and more small wetbags than I need--2 would be enough.
I wash diapers every 3 days. (For my son it was every 4 days, but my daughter is more fussy about getting changed quickly--and I certainly don't want to encourage her to sit in a wet diaper longer, because the desire to be dry will help with toilet training!) Diapers, wipes, covers, and wetbags all go in the washing machine together. 20-minute soak cycle with cold water. Then put in the detergent (I use Seventh Generation) and run a hot wash cycle. Hang everything on the clothesline (put the line between the body of the diaper and the attached soaker so that they are separated and dry faster). When you are about to run out of clean diapers in the changing area, get the diapers and wipes off the clothesline and put them in the dryer--depending on timing, you may need to run a heated dry cycle or just do a fluff cycle. Don't put the covers or wetbags in the dryer.
