Before Ethan was born Eli and I had discussed how we could handle my being a Homemaker financially . On top of our list was using cloth diapers. I did some research on cloth diapers and found that BumGenius 3.0 One Size were pretty popular, trusted diapers. I liked the idea of only buying one set of diapers until potty training. (That was before I discovered my addiction to cloth!)Before I quit working I bought 15 white BG's. We washed them, stuffed them and placed them neatly in a wicker basket with a lid and that 's where they stayed for the next several months.
We got so many disposables for our shower gifts that we never had to buy any for the first 2 months! After that we started using the BG's. Ethan was born at 6lbs 13oz so he wouldn't have fit in the BG's at first.
I'm kind of glad we waited to start using them because there were so many other things on our minds like bring home a new baby!
The next time around will be different. I have already starting my newborn stash! I want to use AIO's, pockets and fitteds with covers. I've read a lot about prefolds being great with a new baby. We used them on Ethan when we didn't have enough pockets and they weren't too bad but they weren't my favorite. I enjoy the ease of the snap and velcro closures!
