You might also want to look at The Do It Yourself Cloth Diapering Handbook www.motherhoodnaturally.com/publications.htm Sometimes it helps to have a hard copy of everything in one place.

Re: new to cloth diapers .. whats the difference in brands???

It can be overwhelming! The best way I learned was just to ask a lot of questions and thought about what would be easiest for me. I have mostly pockets and just received some All In One's (AIO's) in the mail and can't wait to try them. I know I'm not a pre-fold and cover type of person (too much work LOL) so that's how I chose what to start buying first.

This site is awesome and I have already learned so much in the few short weeks since I have joined! Have fun-It's addicting!!!

I like this site. http://www.pinstripesandpolkadots.com/basics.htm It has lots of good information. If you have specific questions, ask here. The mamas on this board are very helpful.
