Fear of the Wrong Diaper

Still not having any clear picture of what cloth diapering would be like for me, I decided to start a registry. I thought it would be best to register for a wide variety of diapers so that I could experiment and see what I liked best. The act of registering helped me process what I had learned about cloth so far and start to make sense of terms like: AIO, AI2 and fitteds… I didn’t actually receive many cloth diapers though- which I get. I mean, two years ago, I probably would have considered cloth diapering crazy too.

I did buy myself a couple of newborn diapers at a consignment sale. And just having a handful of cloth diapers at home made me feel like this could work. I didn’t plan on doing much with cloth for the first few months. I learned in that workshop that the OS (one size) diapers wouldn’t fit very well in the beginning. So, I figured when the baby was around 3-4 months, I’d give it a shot. In the meantime, I would follow the FB group Fluff Love & CD Science closely, so that I could learn from others’ questions and comments.
