Hello and welcome! I'm Nichola, mum to four-month-old Iris, who's been in cloth since 6 days old. Modern nappies do seem very confusing at first, but once you've worked out that there are really only four main types it seems a whole lot easier.
I did a review of our newborn nappy stash here:viewforum.php?f=47
Cotton Tots Bots made up the majority of our stash, but I'm definitely a pocket convert these days.
And while I love the feel of our Sandy's bamboo nappy, the drying time of bamboo just puts me off getting more (although the style suits Iris well). Annette gave great advice about not sticking to one type of nappy - you definitely need a mix, as some are better than others in different situations. Oh, and while I remember! If you're planning to breastfeed, poppers are definitely more booby-friendly than aplix for when you're feeding a half-naked baby!
Look forwards to chatting all things cloth.
