  1. I am curently having to convert 19 velcro dipers to snaps… not fun, so that is my biggest piece of advice! I would say get snaps not velcro. I even would go as far to say skip the pockets and just keep it simple and cheap, prefolds and covers. I LOVE my ECONOBUM, I have the Bum Genius too, I let the daycare girls use those! I prefer the prefolds and covers more though!And I work out side of the home… 13 months in cloth.. and counting! It can be done!
