Re: need help picking out cheap cloth diapers

I think the GMD workhorse dipes are a good basic fitted. But, I have to say, PFs were a lot easier to use on a nb/small baby than on a medium sized squirmer - especially if you just trifold which is what I did.
I'd also suggest 5 covers is probably plenty. If you're running short you can always just wipe one out or wash by hand.

I would want at least 24-30 dipes of whatever type just to give you some leeway on washing. If you're getting 18 fitteds, i'd really recommend getting at least a few PFs or flats to have as an emergency back-up if you get behind on washing/drying. With 18 you'd have to wash every day most likely if you're having them hang dry.
