1) I am thinking of getting one of those sampler packs to see what I like. There are several diff options to choose from so which brands do you reccomend and why? I really like the idea of the All in ones.<br><br>
2) Also if you use a fitted do you have to use a cover all the time, like when at home?<br><br>
3) And explain pockets to me. So is this a fitted diaper with padding that you put in the pocket for more absorbency? So when you change do you change the whole thing or just the padding? Do you need to put a wrap on these?<br><br>
4) Do you have to change at night? Currently DD does not wake to be changed or eat between 10/11pm and 6-8 am and I do not want to wake her unless I have to.<br><br>
Sorry if some of these are silly questions. There is so much out there on CDing it hard to take it all in.<br>
Thanks<br>

<b>1) I am thinking of getting one of those sampler packs to see what I like. There are several diff options to choose from so which brands do you reccomend and why?

One thing to consider is how much money you want to spend.<br><br><b>2) Also if you use a fitted do you have to use a cover all the time, like when at home?</b> Some people let their babies go coverless with fitteds, especially during the warmer months.<br><br><b>3) And explain pockets to me.

The advantage to them is that you can customize how much absorbency you want in the pocket and you then remove it for laundering which means more thorough cleaning and quicker drying time.<br><br><b>4) Do you have to change at night?

It is so nice to have all the options, but you're right that it's hard to take it all in. It'll all start coming together for you in no time as you keep reading.
