Cloth Diapering

Help me shop for a friend

Hey ladies! Help me spend some money! My friend just had a baby and is wanting to cloth diaper. I spoke with some of our close mutual friends and we are pooling money for diapers. So, the big question is what to get? I've already gotten her 1 BG freetime and 1 flip with 3 inserts. I have about $60 more to spend. I'm a fan of blueberry, milovia, BG, and softbums. She doesn't have a lot of money to finish her stash, so I'm trying to stay away from my favs (ie simplex). What are some other well loved brands/types I should get her?

Edited: i forgot to mention that she is getting a couple alvas from a friend. She is also a SAHM. And..... GO!

    Flats and snappies. And a few more flips or RAR covers

  • Great suggestions ladies. I was planning on getting some flats but was unsure what other covers. I have blueberry covers and love them but they're a little spendy.

    Is she the sort of friend who appreciates thrift? You could buy her a few used covers so that your money goes further and then one or two spendy new diapers that she might not be able to afford on her own. I have a couple diapers that I got as gifts that are more than I would ever want to pay for a diaper, but I love that I have them. Using them is a little like a treat. Or maybe a limited edition print?

    I did get her a Marie freetime when they came out. I'm not sure about used. But it's a good idea. Thanks!
    Edit: making sentences is difficult.

  • Workhorses.  Because who doesn't love a workhorse?  No one, that's who.
  • DH and I didn't have a lot of money to spend on our stash. We have OSoCozy unbleached prefolds that we use with snappis and Sweet Pea covers. We love them so far, and it was an economical way to start a CDing stash. I would highly recommend all the brands I mentioned above! (Disclaimer: DD is one month old so we have only been CDing for 4 weeks and have only used our size 1 prefolds and newborn covers)

  • I like my Sweet Pea cover every bit as much as my Blueberry, thirsties and bummis covers.
