Do all inserts work in all diapers or do you have to buy FuzziBunz inserts for FuzziBunz diapers? And bumGenius, etc.? It's all so very confusing.
I don't think I could go the whole flat route with the pins or the Snappis and whatnot. That just seems like waaaaaay too much work and while I know that cloth diapers are much, much more work than disposable, I still think that it's cheaper to go the cloth diaper route. But I know I will need a very extensive amount because Lord knows I won't do laundry enough with only 12 diapers or whatever.
Is it really that much better for the environment? Because how 'bout all that water you're using to do sooooo many extra loads of laundry....
How long does it take for the diapers to dry if you don't dry them in the dryer?
Is it actually cheaper as well? What with all the water that was mentioned above...
And how about convenience? How hard is it to do cloth diapers on the go? How many cloth diapers do you take with you?
Do you really have to buy special detergent for just the diapers? Can you wash the diapers with the rest of the baby clothes?
Do you have to touch the poop and pee that will be on the diapers?
What about wipes? Do you use regular wipes or reusable wipes (kinda like washcloths)?
Also, should I buy like one of each different type of diaper until I find one that I love or what? Oh my gosh. I'm so overwhelmed, yet so confused at the same time! I can't handle all this information! My brain is about to explode!!!
