I got into CDing late in the game -- I've only been doing it for nine months or so, working on figuring out what I like and what does and doesn't work for us. I'm lucky to have found a bunch of local moms who have tons of experience. I'm looking forward to itty bitty newborn diapers!

I CD'd ds2 from birth until about two weeks ago when all-day sickness just got the better of me. I'm hoping when I'm out of the first trimester, we can go back. (In a dream world, he'll start using the potty, but I'm not holding my breath. )

With him, I used pre-folds and Bummis or handknit soakers for the earliest days. I'll probably use the same this time. Then I started using FBs when he got bigger. My whole stash is FBs.

I make and sell knit and crochet wool covers. You can also buy wool interlock which is soft and a lot of people cut up old wool sweaters and turn them into covers too! PM me if you want more info!

I'm planning on it... but as this is my first I don't know where to start. In fact I'm so dense on the lingo, I can't even understand this thread!! I guess I have 7 1/2 months to figure it out!!

I CDed/ECed my last two. I'm sure we will EC to some extent but I have no clue about cloth (did I mention I'm feeling very uncrunchy right now. The thought of all that extra laundry is making me cringe. Of course I'm so tired right now I can barely move I do have a HUGE bin in my basement of all prefolds, joey/ducky bunz, and random other stuffers. So all I really need is a few covers.........

I have to say that laundry is my least favorite thing to do around here. And we live with a laundry mountain most of the time. I just cannot get out from under it. Diaper laundry, however, is my favorite. So easy. We use mostly prefolds and bummis covers. I have a few fuzzibunz. I put them all in a pail. I don't rinse or shake (unless there's a completely solid poop that will just fall off). Then, I empty the pail into the washer, run a rinse/spin cycle. Then wash on a hot/cold cycle with a tad of detergent. Then throw in the dryer. I have a wicker basket for diapers and one for covers on the changing table. I usually just throw diapers in their basket and covers in theirs. If I'm in the mood, I fold them and stack nicely, if not, I don't. And you can't tell just looking at the changing table. I love how easy it is.
In the newborn stage, we have some kissaluvs size 0, which I like a lot. I also have some re'uzm all-in-ones and some newborn prefolds. After that we have infant prefolds and small bummis, with a few fuzzibunz. I would like more fuzzibunz for the diaper bag, as I really prefer these when out and about, but it's just cause they're a bit more compact. Bummis are really the only covers I like. I think I have some NB proraps and maybe even some wool I'll be looking to part with at some point.

Jessica, mama to Emma, 7, Mattie, 5.5 and Lilly, 3 and someone new this Halloween-ish.
