Every family has slightly different needs and that is one reason there are so many cloth diaper options available. The best way to decide which style you'll like best is to ask yourself some questions about your lifestyle, personal preferences, and budget. Let's take a look at the 3 main styles of cloth diapers...
Prefolds (or flats) & Covers: Very economical and friendly for any budget. This is a great option for the newborn stage if you don't want to invest in a lot of expensive newborn all-in-one diapers. The only drawback to prefolds and covers is that it can be intimidating to a new parent who has never used them before. Prefolds and covers are the most similar to the old-fashioned cloth diapers; except you don't need to use pins anymore. You can use pins, Snappi's or just lay the prefold into a waterproof cover. These are available in one-size and sized options.
