New to CDing and boy am I confused!

I have been CDing for about a month now. I have a 8 mo old DD and 2 yr old DS. I bought some fuzzi bunz for them (med & lgs) but ds got a rash from them so he went back into disposies. They are working great on dd and I even order some bumpkins for dd here. I want ds in cloth too but there are so many choices out there I am confused! Like I said, he is 2 and can undo velco. I would like something that would assist in potty training and something the DCP could use too (pins and snappis are out). My mom offered to help me buy him some CDs but I don't know where to start. He is almost 35 lbs so I want something that will last until he is PTed. So far I have been looking at Kissaluvs but don't know anything about covers. I am a single mom so $$$ is an issue (even with mom's help I would like to get enough to CD FT). Any advice?

My dd broke out in a rash too from the fuzzibunz so now we're using fitteds and wool or prefolds and wool. I know that you said that pins and snappi's are out but they work great with prefolds. Hope your able to find something that will work for you.

Welcome!

Could you possible start to look at trainers for your 35 lbs child in addition to diapers.

My children always broke out in a rash with anything that was not all cotton. Any fleece did this to them, one son more than the other.

Don't rule out pins and snappi's, they are pretty easy once you get the hang of it.

Good luck.

It was a strech to get Day Care to use cloth. They only agreed on the condition that the diapers would be ready to put on dd and ds like a disposable. They won't allow pins and asking all the teachers to learn to snappi is probably out of the question KWIM?
