I find a weary good article on rearz.ca that gives you good information about how you can get started whit Cloth Diaper and what sort of stuff you need to have.
Here is a little pre view of the text on there site:
Ready to go with cloth diapers? Here is how many of each item you will need:
- 18 to 36 cloth prefold or fitted diapers (18 are enough for ages 2-99, more are needed for younger infants)
- 0 to 3 all-in-one diapers for lazy or sick days
- 3 to 6 cloth diaper covers
- a few doublers/liners (More for heavy wetters) these are great for bedtime
- 1 diaper pail
- 2 to 3 dozen cloth diaper wipes
- 1 roll of flushable liners (These are to easy cleanup, reduce staining on diapers and prevent creams from gumming up the diaper fibers)
When considering the amounts to buy, take into account the age of the individual and how often you plan to wash. Newborns and infants will need 10 to 12 changes a day. Toddlers will need 8 to 10. Adults will need 4-8. Most cloth diaperers wash diapers every 2 or 3 days.
If you decide to try fitted cloth diapers be sure to try a sampling before investing in a large number of any style. Fitted diapers vary quite a bit in size and fit from one individual to the next.
Your cloth diapering system can be all one type of diaper or a combination of prefolds, fitted and all-in-ones.
