I've heard that you should avoid vinegar for PUL dipes or dipes with elastic, as it can wear them down. I'm not sure about baking soda though.

People are surprised when they see DS's BGs. They don't think cloth diapers have improved in the past 20 years or so. It's fun to educate people though...

I like Dritz pins too. I get them from fabric stores, or find online CD shops with free shipping. Don't buy the ones from Babys R Us, they're terrible!

Dawn or RLR have worked great for us. Whenever you wash, make sure there are no more suds when you're done. Otherwise do another rinse.

Aplix works best on my long skinny baby, so I would recommend something like a BG. Snaps work better on chubbier babies IMO.

I would check diaperswappers or even Craigslist. I've bought and sold quite a few dipes on Craigslist.

Thirsties are nice, and they run bigger. I also do like the AIOs with a pocket, so you can stuff extra.

I've used it, and it works well. We dissolve a wipe solution cube in it in some water, and keep a few cloth wipes in. No problems here!

It really does depend on the diaper. Prefolds and flats should last the longest. Snaps usually last longer than aplix, but elastic varies.

We use BG AIOs or pockets with a hemp babies doubler. I prefer the new AIOs because they also have a pocket, so it doesn't get bunched up when you stuff extra. They're nice because the MF pulls...

It's probably okay, but you may want to strip your dipes next time you wash them just in case. I would also use a liner with your dipes next time you use cream that you aren't 100% sure on. I'm sure...

If she can do snaps, I recommend BabyKicks organic fitteds. They are OS, and can be used later as a pull up when you start PLing. They also have a pocket, so you can stuff a little extra if you need...

We started when my son was about a year old, and we used pockets/AIOs at first. I like them because they're the most like disposable diapers. Prefolds are cheaper, but I couldn't get the folding...

It does depend on the wool. Some you can wash in the washer, others need to be handwashed. If there are care instructions on them, I would stick with that. Or check with the website/store where you...

I've been cloth diapering since my son was about a year, and I wish we would have started sooner. We've had fewer leaks because you can put as much absorbency in the diaper as you need. Disposables,...

Some hot, hot, hot water and time in the sun (if possible) works great for us. I'll do a squirt of dishsoap in my wash too.
