Re: New to cloth, some questions

there are many websites with pics and even youtube intro to cloth diapering basics, pockets, prefolds, flats - check it out, google search "intro to cloth diaper basics", etc.

cotton birdseye (weave) small flats are about 22x24" while large flats are about 27x30", i think you could get away with cotton flannel weave is thicker, still absorbent.

google popular prefold brands to see reviews and exact dimensions/recommended uses:
-cotton: green mountain diaper, diaper rite, imagine, osocozy
-bamboo: sustainable babyish, ??
-hemp: thirsties, baby kicks, ??

i shake out toddler poo in toilet, then toss in dry pail. breastfed poo just goes in the pail. our PUL/fleece/wool covers get used 2-3 times until soiled or saturated, and hand-washed half the time.

good luck, it's a lot of trial and error, don't hesitate to keep asking questions on forum~
