Hello

Hello Everyone!
I am expecting at the end of this month - Aug 30th. This will be out first baby - expecting a little boy Hubby and I just celebrated out 3 year anniversary this past Tuesday and can't wait to meet our little guy (hopefully this month!!!!)

I have been wanting to do cloth diapering for a while now, since like week 8 of my pregnancy. And hubby FINALLY got on board this week =)
We have already bought a few packs of disposables, so we may use those for a while, as we get our stash ready for cloth diapering.

I have looked into quite a few brands, and luckily where I live there are 2 stores that sell cloth diapers (and a few stores in neighboring towns) so I can see them up close.
We have decided on using Flip covers (6) and have 6 inserts to start. I know I need more inserts, but how many covers do I need? Or maybe I should ask that somewhere else... However, we are going to add to our stash over the next few months.

I am very lucky to have a great MIL who supports my CD choice, and has bought us 3 months of a cloth diapering service - so they will provide inserts for us to use and they come clean the diapers and drop off new ones each week, so that will help us get adjusted to cloth diapers and give us some time to buy more inserts and try different brands.

I have lurked on this board for a while, and since we are officially doing cloth diapering - I thought I'd officially introduce myself.
