Re: Lots of ??s. don't hate the newbie. I'm a CD virgin
if you have a brick and mortar cloth diaper store within 2 hours of you, I highly recommend you go to it. That will give u a chance to see all the different styles and materials available. You can touch and feel them and try them out on a baby doll. You will QUICKLY figure out which diaper styles and\or materials that u like, that u hate, and that u r unsure of. That will give u a narrower platform from which to start ur purchases.
Honestly, as a total newbie, I would drive further than 2 hours for that experience.
If u do get to go to one, plan on staying a few hours to really get ur education.
