Ok so a friend on mamapedia.com is wondering about cloth diapers. I told her I'd explain the different kind of diapers that are out there. Yes, there are different kinds. It's great!
Currently I am using prefolds and a cover. This is the most inexpensive route to go. Baiscally it is a sheet of cloth folded into thirds with the middle section which is thicker and more layers (I'll add photo's later tomorrow when I can get to my camera.) The cover is a cover. Go figure. It's made of a special vinyl or plastic. I can't remeber. But don't ever use a vinyl. Has way to many chemicals, which is why we us PUL. Any who it's a cover that holds in the wettness.
All in ones (AIO) are just like a disposable, but you wash and reuse. It has a PUL cover and the insets are attached. The advantages of this is that you just put it on the baby, but I hear that they take a while to dry :(
A fitted diaper is a prefold that already is in the shape of a diaper. You will need a PUL cover for these.
Ok I swear I will have pics up by tomorrow night. I just need sleep tonight. (Oliver hasn't been a good sleeper yet again. I thought he was doing so well. .. nope.)
