You've certainly come to the right place for advice on cloth nappies
Wish I'd known about this place when I first set out, there's nothing you aren't able to find out or ask re cloth nappies on here!

My one piece of advice for anyone starting out would be to buy a couple of different brands and types of nappies and try them out on your lil lady. Not every nappy will suit every baby and what some mums find works fantasically on their LOs, others may find leaky & unreliable
The classifieds is a good place to start
You've got the "Fitteds & Prefolds", which are cloth nappy part of the two part system (nappy plus (waterproof) wrap - wraps you'll find in the "Wraps, Inserts & Accessories") and the "Pocket & All-In-One" which are cloth nappies that have the wrap/waterproof bit built in.
I bought 8 different nappies in the end (before even discovering this site!
) of which 2 worked really well, 4 were ok and 2 leaked everytime I used them
Once I'd decided which ones worked best with Erin (& which ones I liked best
) I then went ahead and bought a nappy set (20 nappies plus wraps and liners). And we've not looked back since
