That first one looks like any normal diaper. Very cool.

I'll let you in on something. Babies get used to peeing whenever and not feeling it, and so they become dribblers. They just pee as they go. The AIOs are really very easy. If you're going for convenience, and cheaper in the long run as apposed to disposables.

But I understand not wanting more laundry, haha.

I've seen the ones with a cover, where you buy the liners. I've only seen them in boy and girl colors, no neutral (since we don't know the sex, we're going all neutral)

I've heard from other parents, as well as reading online that you go through a lot of diaper changes (I just read 12 diapers a day when they are newborns). Though I am sure the depends on the individual baby.

I'm just so worried about having the baby in cloth diapers and then running out (either on having no clean diapers, or mis-calculating how many liners we have yet) and then we're stuck until the store opens.

Whipple, did you have you kids in disposible or did you always have them in cloth?

appylover, You could use the cloth diapers and IF for some reason you run out, you could always have a pack of regular diapers on hand? I think that's what I would do, because if you take the baby out, like to a store or something, and it poos in the cloth diaper, I would not want to be stuck caring a poo'd diaper in my bag. Haha. So maybe having both on hand would be good for you?

ohh that's a good idea.
I'll definitely look into doing that/talking to my husband about that.

You would still be saving money by not buying regular diapers all the time, but when you need the convenience of a regular diaper, it is there. =)

that's exactly what I did when madison was little.
We did disposables with Aiden, and when we ran out we were screwed. But with the cloth, you can learn how to fold a flat (receiving blanket) and toss a cover on until they are washed.
As for in public, you just plop the poop (ok I'm giggling now) into a toilet and go on your way. While still breastfeeding the smell really doesnt smell bad unless you leave it for hours.
I think when you say liners you're talking prefolds. You can fold them and snappi or pin them or just fold into a cover.
You can also get a trial pack with a few different diapers to try out. And there is also a diaper service. Which might be perfect for you in the beginning. You wont have to do ANY laundry! Typically it is just prefolds they deal with, but I know of one company that uses fitteds. You would need covers, that's it!

If you have any questions feel free to ask. I know how overwhelming it is, there are just so many varieties and terms. But once you get it, it just kinda clicks, for the most part. Then someone comes out with something new and you get confused again haha. Like say...the Boorio.

I looked at the cloth diapers online and they are really cool. Just that I found very few covers that are gender neutral.

If we did go the disposible route there are a few stores that are open 24/7 that carry some form of diapers if we did run out. But I guess we could use them too if we used cloth.

I'll have to see the situation as it progresses. Right now I cannot stand doing laundry because of the whole set-up, but that will change in a month or so. And then there is how everything is after the baby is born.

cloth diapers are great for buffing off the wax on you car or truck.

Figure out the cost for the diapers, including washing and drying,
Time spent pre-cleaning soiled ones. Folding. Etc.

Then check the price of a diaper service.

Like bill cosby says, poo poo. Baby has a nice poo poo. Then later
OMG what is that smell. Gag gag. LOL

Formula is not to stinky but later after cerals and after formula it acquires
Smells. And at first with feedings through the night, belly aches, if the
Baby gets colicly. You will need to sleep when the baby sleeps as much
As you possible can. Plus still do the needed work in the house, Plus you
Doing the needed diaper service on top of that.

Like I said use the cloth diapers for waxing the car.
