Re: I'm sooo stinking frustrated!!!

I would also post an ISO and check out FFS. Maybe a prefold co-op? Although IDK of one going on anywhere right now.

Re: I'm sooo stinking frustrated!!!

How about these diapers? http://hyenacart.com/WinsomeWhat-Nots/ My Ds was a tester for the size 2's and they are very absorbent. I don't see any in stock, but I KNOW Lisa would be willing to do some customs. We have three of her diapers and I can only say good things about them.

Re: I'm sooo stinking frustrated!!!

PFs and covers. Seriously.. get like a dozen and 2 or 3 PUL covers.

You can get a dozen premium PFs for $24. A snappi, which technically, you don't even need, for a little over $2, and Mom's Milk Boutique has Thirsties PUL covers for a little less than $10 each, or you could find them cheaper on FSOT probably. You could have a whole stash for around $50. I, personally, would rather have 2 dozen PFs, but 1 would get you by if you are that strapped.

A stash of enough OS dipes for two kids would be pretty pricey, I think.

Re: I'm sooo stinking frustrated!!!

On the sizes, my son can wear size 4 sposies and is between mediums and larges. He can go either way, but has enough growing room left in mediums that, if its a good price, I'll buy them. (When I'm buying new I ONLY buy large or OS though.)
If you're looking to have 2 in cloth, I'd definitely consider having a good amount of your stash be OS diapers. They won't work well for a newborn (too much bulk) but, once the cord falls off and the baby is 10-12lbs, they should work fine. Being tight on cash, for a newborn I'd just do about 18infant prefolds and 6 prorap newborn covers. You'd be washing daily, but only until little one grows into the one sizes, and it'd be a minimal investment to get you through until other things fit. Then the prefolds can be used as dipes, inserts, doublers, etc.

Re: I'm sooo stinking frustrated!!!

Thanks for everyone's help!! I'm thinking prefolds and covers are the cheapest - that's what I'm working on. I get so overwhelmed though b/c trying to figure out the yellow, red, brown, unbleached chinese indian thing is making my head spin!!!!!! ARGH! There should be a prefold for dummies thread, lol.

Thanks again everyone!!! I get so overwhelmed so quick!!!!

eta: I forgot to say DS is in size 4/5's. He can wear 5's, but he just barely fits in 4's with no leaks so I've been 4's b/c there's more to a box than the larger sizes.
