The owner, April, was extremely helpful. She is full of info about cloth diapers. I'm a newbie to this so I needed all the help I could get. Here is the email that April wrote me:
So glad you are interested! I'm attaching some pictures of the prefolds and the covers.
The way it works is that you put the prefold on your baby and attach the prefold with a snappi, then cover the diaper with a cover that attaches with velcro. A snappi is a stretchy T-shaped device with grippers to grip the diaper on both sides to keep the diaper on. For a newborn, you can skip the snappi and the diaper is held on by the cover. Then when you change the diaper, you change out the prefold and use the cover again until it needs to be washed. The inside of the cover can be wiped clean with a baby wipe, and just needs to be washed when the gussets get dirty. Usually, for me, I can use one cover all day. Or I use two, and let one dry while I'm using the other.
There are also other types of diapers such as all-in-ones and pocket diapers. With the all-in-ones, everything is sewn together. The plus side is it is one step, but it has to be washed after every use, is more expensive, and takes longer to dry. The pocket diapers have a layer of fleece that helps keep your baby dry, and you stuff the pocket with whatever absorbent layer you want. These also have to be washed after each use, but have faster drying times. I like to use these for church, and for my husband since he doesn't like that there are 2 steps with the prefolds.
Most people use a variety of these methods, and create a "stash" of cloth diapers. The diaper service is great for either the prefold/cover method, or the pocket method (you can stuff the pocket with prefolds). I know this is a lot of information to take in, but I am here to help you. I can show you all of the items in person and how to use them before your baby comes.
Support and education are a big part of my business.
If you are having a baby shower, I can send some cards to put in your invites that say you are going to use a diaper service, and people can purchase weeks or months of service for you for a gift. If you like, I can send you a catalog, some information on cloth diapering, and a sample of this card. Just send me your address. If you have more questions and would like to talk, call me anytime. Congratulations on your new baby!
