I finally did it. I went to the store and I bought as much as I could afford right now to get us started. I purchased a Rumparoos cover, a Flip cover, and 12 prefold diapers. I also had a Grovia cover that I was given by a good friend. So 3 covers, and 12 prefolds. Oh yeah, and a Snappi.
I went into this local store here in Evergreen and the lady in there spent a good 30 minutes explaining every single thing she could think of about cloth diapering, gave me a cloth diapering "dictionary" (a print out of every term used in the cloth diapering world and it's meaning), and I ended up leaving that day without buying anything, but going home and pricing it out to be nearly $350 to "start" with the things I wanted. But when I was home last week in IL, my mom showed me how she used to diaper me, and that was with a prefold, pins, and plastic pants. I was like "Why the heck am I not doing that??" So I came home and 2 days later bought his first cloth diapers (at the store I had previously gone to).
So there I was, waiting all this time to be able to spend hundreds at once to get started, and do you want to know how much I spent? About $45. That's it. And I am successfully cloth diapering 24/7. It is seriously AMAZING. I am already so in love with it...I can't wait to start adding to the collection :)
Because we have a pretty small supply right now, I wash the prefolds and covers usually once to twice a day. Which I gladly do, because I feel 100% better every single time I change his diaper now!
So far, I really like the Flip cover the best (the green one)...less leaks in that one compared to the others. I also REALLY need some soaker pads for night time.
Cloth diapering is pretty dang awesome.
After I posted this, I got some greatly appreciated money in the mail, so I went and bought another Flip cover, and an Econobum diaper and soaker pad, and 3 more soaker pads. :)
