A few more CD questions
Quick diaper question... I'm going to pretend that I know the answer and I'm just "checking" the facts. :)
If you get a "pocket" diaper with the inserts and all, do you have to wash the cover every time? I thought you didn't have to ... but now looking into more of the pocket diapers I'm thinking that you do have to.
I'm still not sure about pockets vs. prefolds simply for the fact that prefold folding seems a little daunting and ... not so "idiot proof" (I'm the idiot obviously!). I thought pockets sounded good and I could just toss the insert to be cleaned and keep using the same cover while being a little easier (but without issues of all in ones.... mildew?).
BUT I also like the interchangeability of prefolds and covers. It seems that if you go for pockets you have to use "their system" (whichever that might be) whereas you can mix and match a little more if you use prefolds and covers. (Which really, cuteness is totally a draw... especially if there is at least one girl swimming around in me!)
So I'm thinking... I will need...
- prefolds (maybe 50-60?)
- doublers or boosters or extra wetter things or whatever they're called (# ... ???)
- covers, hopefully ones size fits all so it seems more like a long-term investment (maybe 12-20?)
- snappis things (those t things...)
- wet bag (maybe 2?)
- special detergent (?? totally clueless on this)
- maybe liners?
- origami training
- the pocket cover things (like 50-60 if you have to wash them every time??)
- pocket inserts (50-60?)
- wet bag
..... as I'm typing this I figure I MUST have it wrong because it is sounding a little crazy
- 50-60 All in ones
- extra soaker, booster, wet things
- wet bags
Would you believe that I'm STILL this clueless?? I have been googling like a crazy lady! It doesn't help that I'm terribly indecisive and I can't just hop to Babies R Us to look at some of the options just to see what the heck is going on!
And bumGenius... are the regular ones AIO, but they 4.o's pockets? There's so much lingo bouncing around on so many blogs and sites I can't keep things straight...
