Hi Everyone -
New to this board...I am expecting baby#2 in July and since we are going from 2 incomes to one soon - I am trying to save $$$$$... considering using cloth diapers for baby #2...
DH is hesitant for some reason - not sure why b/c he LOVES saving money - LOL
Also we are not sure if this will be our last or we will be having one more baby so its harder to calculate our overall savings. I know I can try to resell them though when we are done.
So I have been doing some research and it is very overwhelming... All in ones look pretty easy I think? I guess I am scared to jump right in and spend the $ on the dipes then relize its not for us and wasting the money... so I was only going to buy like 2 diapers of maybe 3 different types and if we like it then buy more...
Does anyone have any suggestions for first timers?
Any ways I can ease DH's mind about it?
I think I would still use disposiable when leaving the house and stuff (at least till we get the hang of it. I will be a stay at home mom and plan to do at least 1 wash a day if not more. Do I need a special pail or would any old bucket or pail from Target work?
Also what type of diaper would you suggest for a first timer? All in 1? All in 2?
What type or brand most cost effective? I don't want to buy all cheapies if they don't last ya know?
Did anyone try cloth diapering and then stop? If so why?
Thanks in advance for any advice or suggestions!
