weeduckling, I'm up in the SF Bay Area. The store that has the classes is called Tiny Tots. I actually found the store when I was buying diapers from a lady off of craigslist!

I figure it would be a sell to use their diapering service. They do have some things I would want to get at their store so I don't mind them trying to sell me.

Kssinca,

I will be using tiny tots for diaper service. :-) But their store isn't that close to me. Maybe it would be worth driving down for the class - I feel somewhat clueless. When are you taking yours? I'd love to hear if it is worth the drive or not.

I have fluff! I went to my friends house today and this is what she gave me!

They are a mixture of fitted, AIO's, pockets etc... Looks like all I need to pick up newborn wise is some covers and maybe a dozen prefolds. So I can spend my money on the next size up.

Jenivere, so cute! I spend too much time looking at diapers on the web! I want them ALL!!! I'm not feeling very cute/attractive but atleast my baby can be the stylish one!

I'm very excited to do my cloth diapering class! As much as I just want to focus on the cuteness aspect, I want to be sure I know how to put the prefolds on!

Arg! We want to, but we have nothing but a bunch of Gerber prefolds we bought for K when he spit up all the time. I am buying a pattern, but can't afford materials at this point. I have a feeling we are destined for sposies

dooney,
Can you try pretending you need to buy a box of sposies and wipes and taking the money out and putting it in a jar every 2 weeks until babe comes? You would have enough money by the time babe arrives for prefolds and covers. Then just keep doing that and to get the next size or some AIOs or whatever you want. Another option is just get the prefolds and knit or crochet your covers or make the dipes out of recycled tee shirts and the covers out of recycled sweaters. There is a really good site on frugal diapering check out the diapering forum. You can do it and for much cheaper than sposies.

dooney, I found one frugal mom's website who made prefolds from secondhand receiving blankets. She said she was able to purchase them at yardsales for spare change. If you want, I can find the website and pm you the link.

If you can manage to save a few bucks and want fitteds here is a simple pattern for turning pre folds into fitteds. http://www.diapersewing.com/prefold_to_fitted.htm I was given newborn diapers but I plan to make some of these in the next size up.

I'm just jumping in. I'm hoping to EC but my mom gave me her 25 year old cloth diapers that are going through the wash now. They've held up pretty well considering! The neighbor has lent me one AIO that she never used and 6 bummis super whisper covers (1 XS, 5 SM). I'm not going to worry about filling in any missing needs until after Christmas.

We just added two bummi's newborn covers to our stash, just in case baby is really tiny. So I think we're set!
