No problem. I just started on our cloth diaper journey really when Savannah was born so I remember how confusing it can be. Any questions just ask. I have about 3 different cloth diaper groups I'm apart of and my facebook is FULL of cloth diaper moms so I can always find a answer.

I just realized I didnt show one other cover option or none of the outsides.. Ill grab them and do it real quick LMAO

This is a sized cover in Velcro (you can get all of them in velcro closure but I only suggest it when you have newborn sized)


This is a tiny cover but it is not just for that size you can make it extra small and Savannah can still wear it. It is obviously snap


One Size Hybrid. In a snap. The bottom three rows of snaps are rise snaps they make it either 8 lbs all the way up to 30. This one fits Savannah AND Morgan


Orange is a cover, Purple is a pocket the other three I posted seperate as well. Everything is one size 8-10 lbs all the way up to 30+ lbs except the velcro and the girly with hearts

Here's a question...when did ya'll start to show?

Someone I know from tumblr just posted a picture claiming to be 9 weeks with a pretty decent sized baby bump. I'm wondering if 1) she's lying about being pregnant, 2) she's further along than 9 weeks and doesn't know it, or 3) she's normally carrying more weight in her belly...but it definitely looks like a formed baby bump.

I'm 9 weeks and my stomach is flat as can be. I'm 5'9", thin, with pretty strong core muscles and have barely been able to keep down food, so that's expected, but is it common to have any kind of bump by 9 weeks??

Everyone develops differently. I wasn't clearly showing for a long time but i already had some pudge lol. It depends how she is carrying, her muscle structure, her height and weight can be big factors, lots of things affect the way and when you start showing

Well... Mayabe she is. IDK. Just saying people develop some crazy bellies and some crazy non bellies where no one would ever know they are even pregnant until they see them with a
Newborn

Visibly pregnant? Well over halfway through both pregnancies but I measured super small the whole time with both boys.

Disposable diapers versus reusable diapers?

Can someone explain to me the pros and cons of both and HOW exactly reusable ones work?

Cloth you throw them in the washer and line dry the covers machine dry the inserts. You can use any of the systems above and there are a few more ways I just don't own them.

Pros to cloth- cheaper, no harsh chemicals, good for the planet "green", no having to go to the store and buy diapers, alot of babies are allergic to the chemicals in disposible, less rashes, CUTE, if its a girl no need for bloomers under dresses, and if its a boy in the summer toss a shirt on and Viola instantly dressed, kids transition to potty training easier, you can use them for all your kids without have to spend the money on diapers EVERY time.

cons- Laundry if thats a big deal to you, can be a pain when you have a yeast rash but you can always buy a pack of disposible if that happens. I have only dealt with one and its currently because Savannah was allergic to something, have to carry dirty diapers with you if you are out (you do get a zippered bag so you dont smell them LOL), cant use mainstream clothes sometimes since the diapers are bulkier, you have to clean the poop out of them but you can get liners for when they start solids where the clean up is greatly diminished but honestly I just drop most of it in the toilet.


Pros to disposibles- readily available anywhere, throw out after each use.

Cons- the pros to cloth LOL. You also cant easily remedy a over peeing issue and if your kid doesnt fit the ones you have you HAVE to buy more. Now that Savannahs bigger we dont have to buy her a new size unless we want to use a system that does other sizes (prefolds and covers)

Cost breakdown
Most disposables are around .25 cents a diaper
I paid around $5 per diaper for mine. and they will be used for about 2-3 years PER kid.

(their store does NOT sell the cheapest ones you can get these are ONLY Us made and all kinds of stuff)
http://lifeofatallymom.com/2011/12/f...cloth-diapers/

I could list dozens of bullet points on the benefits of cloth, but when you get down to brass tacks what usually jumps out and grabs people is realizing they can diaper their child from birth through potty training for less than $500, and then either sell those diapers (often for up to half of their original value) or save them for future children, and keep even more cash in their pocket.
