Hi! I've been CDing for almost 2 years now and have come on here quite a few times during that time but never registered or got involved.

I'm married, we have two daughters (ages 4 and 2) and another girl on the way, due in September We have two ragaper kitties too- one boy, one girl! I'm a pretty "crunchy" mom I guess. (By "crunchy" I mean I love real foods, babywearing, the natural approach to things, etc.)

When I first started using cloth diapers I tried covers and prefolds. But that was quite intimidating for my first cloth experience. So I ended up getting 20 used BG 3.0s off of Craigslist. They were pretty used, so I ordered refresher kits. That was hard to replace the applix and elastic. So then I tried converting them to snaps, and I did a pretty good job, but it was still hard. So finally I decided to just sell my stash and use the proceeds to buy brand new covers. I bought flip covers and have really liked them! But I do miss the conveniece of pocket diapers. Not to mention, I miss DH being able to change DD2 every now and then lol! So I am now hoping to build back up a stash of pocket diapers

Welcome! I just registered on here too, but have come on here now and again. My husband calls me a "crunchy" or "granola" mommy too!

Whew you've already been through the ringer! Welcome to DS!

Keep encouraging Dh to change, maybe try a simple pad fold or trifold in the cover? He'll get there!
