Hello

I'm new to CDing, though this is my 3rd child (yes, I used sposies on the other 2). My SIL used cloth on her 2, and I have inherited her stash to try this whole thing out... just trying to figure out which end is up here! lol.

What I think so far (it's only the 2nd full day of this):
AIO's and AI2's are a great concept, but the ones I have are super smelly- might be because how used they are also, these are what I used at night and they leaked big time both times (and again- the smell!)
Pockets are nice too, but do I change the whole thing every time she gets wet or just the insert?
Prefolds seem to work pretty well but I'm not entirely sure about the whole cover thing... does it have to be one of those ugly rubber pants things or are there better (read cuter) covers?

I will figure this all out- one day.

Re: Hello

the smell might be built up residue, sounds like you might need to strip the diapers. Yes pockets should be washed all the time. (Although I do know people who just change the insert). And covers are much much cuter these days no more rubber pants!
