And then with the cover overtop:
The first time I began cloth I was so annoyed that the diapers come down to the knees nearly but now it's just normal to me. Like all things, she will grow into them! One thing I have discovered new this time around are fitteds (see below.)
They still require a cover but as you can see are a LOT more simple than folding a prefold. I purchased them from a friend and frankly if one of the main points for me wasn't to save money I would own 20 of these! I have 3 (side note - the brand is Thisties) and I use them mostly for night time or when we are out since they make life a little bit easier.
I've found myself thinking about jumping into my stash of pocket diapers much earlier (E is just 3 weeks old now) but I will probably wait until the amount of diapers we are going through slows down a little bit. You know, when one diaper change doesn't turn into 3-4 diaper changes before I've even left the changing table! ;) The only other detail I can think of that's different is that I am using regular Tide Powder for my diaper laundry instead of Charlie's Soap. The main reason? I had to order Charlie's Soap online and I can pick up Tide Powder at any local grocery store AND use it on the rest of my laundry as well. Hey, when #2 comes along somtimes the solution is just whatever is fastest and easiest!
