If you know a new mom who wants to use cloth, what would you give her?

I've convinced several people to go cloth. Here's my favorite gift basket:
1 PUL diaper pail liner
1 wetbag for the diaper bag
10 cloth wipes (useful even if you don't use them for diapering)
1 cloth-safe cream (I give California Baby)
1 Kissaluvs Diaper Lotion Potion spray
3 unbleached Indian prefolds (useful for lots besides diapering)

This week I bought a friend a BG Flip day pack. I love that it's all boxed together 6 inserts and 2 covers. It's not as creative as my accessories basket, but I think she really needs diapers.

I just gave CDs at a baby shower. I got her a dozen infant premium prefolds and a dozen homemade flannel wipes. Prefolds are just so useful.

if I knew what my SIL was having (due in August, isn't finding out as far as I know), I'd get her the 5-pack of the BG 4.0 artist series. Not that I think they would look bad on a boy, but some people prefer them on girls, so I'd never buy for a green teamer. She's a lucky duck tho, Cottonbabies opened up near her not long ago, so she has a great resource closeby!

Otherwise, I'd probably offer a sample pack of various diapers and supplies, perhaps already put together by one of the online diaper shops and that way she can explore without shelling out a ton.

That's an awesome gift basket! I also like the sample pack, and accessories would be great!

It depends if they registered for cloth or if they were 100% into it or wanted to try but not sure. If they were 100% and wanted prefolds I'd probably do some of those. If they were not sure I'd probably do some bum genius or duo pocket diapers.
