Re: New to cloth diapering. Looking for discounts.

I find ebay a good place to buy diapers these days. You need to decide if you want name brand or ones direct from china. Checking local forums, such as craigslist or facebook yardsale pages -- cloth diapers can be heavy to getting them locally can cost much less. Also many of the more popular cloth diaper brands have FST facebook pages for purchasing used.

I've heard some people like charlie banana but they don't get talked about much here. With twins a prefold with cover system is more cost effective.

I suggest you don't buy a ton of one brand until you are reasonably sure they work for you and your boys. Also remember while switching over you can use whatever cloth you have and then use sposies until you are able to wash. Doesn't have to be all or nothing during the trial/switching period.

Good Luck!

Babycenter also has a FSOT for cloth diapers and there's another cloth diaper website, both of which get some traffic. You'll find different things sell better on each for some reason.

Hi! Congrats again! ClothDiaper.com has a lot of sales. They don’t have the brand you are wanting though. If you have a local BuyBuyBaby, they’re having Charlie Banana on discount.

Another pocket diaper brand to consider is Imagine. They’re not as trim fitting as Cb, but having the generous sized pocket makes life easy when you’re stuffing, lol. Not that you asked, but two non-pocket brands that have the hybrid option are gDiapers and Grovia. I love and used all that I mentioned. I really like the velcro on the Grovia. You can “stuff” withprefolds, padfolded flats or their snap in inserts.
