Have you thought about what kind of diapers you will use for baby?  If so, will it be cloth or disposable?  Do you have any favorite brands?

Cloth- Alva's pockets. At less than $5 per cloth diaper, I had more than broken even in 4 months with DS. I am going to take the money I save from buying diapers and take the whole family on a cruise in September. I'll do an extra load of laundry every couple of days for that :) I also found that I had no issues with diaper rash.

I am going with disposable as well.  Just personal choice.  I chose disposable with my 3 boys in the past too.  Most likely going with Pampers.

I can understand your desire to stay away from cloth diapers- especially if you don't have an easy access to a washing machine!  It sounds like Huggies work best for your kiddos- good plan sticking with them!  It's been my experience that if one child has sensitive skin, chances are their siblings will too.

Well, I've used both cloth and disposable and I have to say I will stick with disposable diapers. Cloth diapers are too much of a hassle, especially when you have to go to a friend's house to do laundry. Plus, my daughter had an allergic reaction to the cloth diapers on top of that. As for brand, I prefer the Huggies as they seem to be the less irritating. With my eldest, we went through multiple brands because of his extremely sensitive skin and eczema; Huggies was the only brand we found that he could wear - expensive, yes, but worth it in the long run. Now, pull-ups on the other hand are a totally different story. LOL
