About diapers and this sort of things - sobre pañales y esa clase de cosas

What kind of diapers am I going to use?
Answer this question , is gonna driving me mad. One thing is sure, green diapers. But there're a lot of different types, I can't even imagine how much.
 If you are going to be mom or you have been recently I'm pretty sure you know what I'm talking about.

Reusable or biodegradable? I bet for reusable daily and biodegradable for travelling.

If you choose reusable you have a variety of options:
- AIO : All in one
- AI2 : All in two
- Pocket diapers
- One size
- NB newborn, Small, medium, large or X-Large size
- Materials: Bamboo, Tencel, Hemp, Microfleece, Wool, Cotton, ...
- Reusable or disposable inserts
- Handmade or commercial ones.

I was searching on Internet and reading a lot about this and at the end  I got my answer AI2 OS is the best option for my family and me. Just a few covers are needed the most important are the inserts.
I choose Pop-in diapers by Closeparents and in order to save some money I started to make some boosters and soakers. I bought a pair of NB at Country Bum Kids too. Trina makes wonderful diapers and accept custom orders.  I'm really happy with mines.

Taking the booster by closeparents that  I bought as model, I made a pattern and as a result I have  11 handmade boosters !!!
Each one has three layers Hemp/Tencel fleece + hemp/bamboo fleece + hemp/bamboo fleece (hope it will work ok)

I was tempted to make the diapers too, but they look complicated for me. If you're interested in make your own you'll find some tutorials, here, here, and here.
