Hi ladies! I was wondering how long it usually takes for hard water to interfere with the absorbency of the diapers. We are planning to use prefolds to start, and we will be living in an area with pretty hard water for the first 4 to 6 weeks of LO's life (depending on when he or she decides to come). After that we are moving back to an area with soft water. Should I invest in water softener for those initial weeks? Or do you think it is a short enough time period that it won't really matter? And will the soft water remove any effects of hard water? Also, any detergent recommendations would be great. Thank you!
