first of all hi
once you get into the cloth there'll be no going back! i'm also a ftm and once i started buying cloth nappies i got totally addicted
and now she is here its so satisfying using the cloth, knowing you're saving money, the environment and babies bum. each one i put on i'm like that's another disposable not used!
as others have said, get lots of different brands. this is what i did and tbh i thought they would all be fine but as it turns out there are some i really don't like. also try different types of nappy, both the pockets and aios. i would recommend two parters as well, really good for keeping that poo in (which btw disposables are rubbish at! everytime i put her in a disposable she gets poo everywhere). I like the little lambs and the tots bots stretchies but they might be a little big for a newborn depending on what size they come out. i started her in kissaluvs, sandies and diddy diapers. as for wraps, i like the rikki wrap and little lamb wrap best, but nature babies are good too. but saying that, you might like something completely different.
and starting early is great! gives you a chance to build a stash. i bought nearly all of my newborn stash preloved, there are great buys on here and everyone is really lovely.
keep asking questions, keep an eye on the forums and see what people say in the reviews. folk on here are a fountain of knowledge. not sure i could have done the cloth nappy thing without it!
