On Tiny Cloth Booties

I am a cloth diapering gal.
With our oldest we used what we could find and afford (old time prefolds and plastic covers)
With our second we could afford a few fancy covers
With the third I used mainly G Diapers
and now
I'm experimenting...
We are using mainly G Diapers with cloth inserts, but not sure how good they will fit later on.
Cute G-Diaper Baby Bum
I have a few fancy covers (Rumparooz, etc.) that I really like with the Indian Prefold cotton diapers,
but they are still too big for my little one's rump.
The G Diapers are so expensive (for the cloth inserts anyway) and I might try to make a few to see how they work.  I don't like the disposable/compostable inserts anymore.  Not sure how they are different from when we used them 9 years ago, but they don't seem to absorb anything and get the covers all wet.   Yuck.  I really like the cloth inserts, they are made from Hemp and cotton, so they absorb really well.
For wipes I got the Prince Lionheart wipe warmer on Amazon.  I like the wipes that came with it alot.  I'd also ordered some Thirsties wipes and they seem to be really pilly, don't like them very much.
If you live in central Arkansas you can find all kinds of cloth diapering options at The Green Corner Store downtown.  They even have consulting and gently used diapers! (Plus you can get some Loblolly ice cream while you're there!)
My honey made me a beautiful clothesline last week.  I know, strange thing to get excited over but I am!  It's on a pulley system so I don't have to get down off the back porch!
So cute to see those little diapers flapping in the breeze.
I'll keep you posted on how this journey goes!
