I know it's still early in the pregnancy, and I don't plan on buying anything for the baby anytime soon, but I have thought a lot about cloth diapering. There is an overwhelming amount of information on the Internet, and I'm not sure where to begin! From another blog I have followed, I found this website very useful: Green Mountain Diapers.
GMD seems to have packages for those new to cloth diapering, and the diapers are ALL COTTON. I have read a lot about wool, and how it holds smell and often has to be stripped, whereas cotton usually does not. Cotton does not seem to have this problem, but maybe cotton leaks more?? No idea, I have a lot to learn over the next 8 months.
I also need to convince my husband that cloth diapering is the way to go. Not only is it good for the environment, but from everything I read, it is much better for the baby. Cotton is more breathable and there aren't all those chemicals (like petroleum) like there are in disposables. This isn't to say that we wouldn't need disposables every once in a while, but my plan is to use cloth diapers 95% of the time!
If anyone has suggestions or other websites with useful information, please share!
