I finally decided on my beginner diapers -- prefolds, thirsties covers, and thirsties fab fitteds. I have read that I need to wash them first, right? Is there anything special I need to do? I have read about people ruining their diapers, and I would really love to just skip that step. Any advice would be appreciated.

You wanna wash your prefolds in hot water and dry them 2-5 times to get them to quilt up properly. They need the hot to shrink and remove any of the waxiness and the wet dry to quilt and make them absorbent.
