Re: A whole new world I am in!

Welcome and I feel your pain regarding all there is to know about CD'ing. I posted a week or so ago that I was afraid to prep my diapers. I read some posts and realized that I just have to jump in and do it, so I did. It sounds like you have a great support person who knows what theya re doing and this board is awesome.

Definitely check out the FSOT board. It's good to buy used to see what you like.

PLUS because prefolds don't have elastic or snaps, they last for multiple children (our prefolds/covers/snappis from start to finish were about $300, and I even sold the covers here on DS to recover some cost).

We used different PUL and wool covers and I also knit wool covers for my son (the wool was more expensive, so I learned to knit, haha). Here are some great links that you can read through

And here is a post I made on my blog a long time ago that helped some of my friends
I'm just going to this post b/c she said a ton of what I was going to say. I am also a prefolds-only user, and at home, I will almost always just leave the cover off entirely. I have one set of prefolds that I'd used for DD as well and now am using on my DS. They are starting to look a little ratty but I didn't have a ton (only a couple dozen or so), so I did have to wash more often than others might. But even with the slight fraying, they are still totally functional.
